Regularly taking the fermented food Kefir has been found to help in the treatment of constipation in some people.
A unique probiotic could target a common cause of functional constipation, methane producing bacterial overgrowth, according to a new study.
Drinking water rich in minerals such as magnesium improved bowel function in people with functional constipation within just 6-weeks.
Although there is a long traditional use of figs in treating constipation there have been no clinical studies until now. And figs may rival over the counter laxatives in efficacy and safety.
Kefir is not your average fermented food; unlike most yoghurt it is rich in probiotic bacteria and may improve regularity and digestive health.
Instead of habit forming laxatives why not try kiwifruit? A number of human clinical studies have found kiwifruit a highly effective way to provide relief from constipation.
