Observations show that the performance of physical work immediately after meals is not only not increased, and, conversely, inhibits digestive processes. The observed decrease (inhibition) in the secretion of digestive glands, disturbed reflex secretion of digestive juices.
Inhibition of digestive functions during physical work can be explained by the inhibition of food centres in the negative result of the induction motor
excitation centers. This is due to the fact that the blood supply to the digestive glands decreases, and leads to a decrease in the secretion.
When the sports activity, you must consider that not only the muscular work slows down digestive processes, but also intensive digestion of food has a negative effect on motor activity. Excitation of food centres and the outflow Continue reading
