What happens to the gastrointestinal tract during exercise?

Exercise causes hypoxia, which increases the demand on the heart

to supply all the vital organs with oxygen. Therefore, being a

secondary property the GI Tract has blood flow reduced.

I don't know if that's what you're looking for, you might want

to search something more relevant to the whole body rather then a

system. For example "effects of exercise on the human body."

Exercise is sympathetic so decreases peristalsis and makes

vasoconstriction to blood vessel.
