Beat constipation the natural way

 

Blog-Oct2-main

Constipation can be very painful and take a big toll on the body. Even though it usually lasts for a short period, to some it can be a long-term chronic condition that affects quality of life. Below are some of the reasons many of us experience it frequently:

 

  • Not eating enough fibre – fruits and vegetables are extremely important to your daily fibre needs
  • A change in your routine or lifestyle, especially your eating habits
  • Constantly ignoring the urge to pass stools
  • Not drinking enough fluid – water and fresh juices can help you tremendously
  • In children, poor diet and fear of using the toilet can lead to constipation

There are ways to treat constipation of course, with diet and lifestyle changes being recommended as the first treatment. This includes gradually increasing your daily intake of fibre and making sure that you drink plenty of fluids. Medication helps too although in some cases it can take several months before a regular bowel pattern is re-established.

Nevertheless, it goes without saying that prevention is better than a cure. The best way to prevent constipation is having enough fibre in your body.

Constipation and Fiber are soul mates

There are two types of fibre, soluble and insoluble, both of which are essential for keeping your intestinal system running smoothly. Soluble fibre allows more water to remain in the stool, making waste softer and larger so it’s easier to pass through the intestines. Whereas insoluble fibre adds bulk to the fecal material, which hastens its passage through the gut and prevents that constipated feeling.

 If you are not a fibre fan, however, don’t worry. Our selection of Hi-Fibre juices is yummy and packed with other essential nutrients that are good for your body.
