3 Best Juice Choices for Overcoming Constipation

Constipation, aka difficult to defecate, must be very disturbing to activity. This condition is fairly common, at least everyone has been constipated once or several times in his life. The good news is that regularly drinking fruit juice is believed to be effective for treating constipation at home.

Why Are Juices Good For Constipation?


You are said to be constipated when you have less than three bowel movements a week. There are many things that can cause constipation, some of which include stress, low physical activity, certain medical conditions, medications that are being consumed, to other factors beyond your control.

Even so, most cases of constipation are caused by the food we eat. More precisely, what we don't eat. Less, rarely, or even not eating fiber is the main reason why you can become constipated. Likewise, if you rarely drink water.

Therefore, the key to overcoming constipation is basically increasing fluid and fiber intake. You can get fiber and fluid intake from fruit or vegetables.

Fruit and vegetable fiber can help stimulate bowel movements more smoothly so that digested food waste can be quickly excreted by the body. In addition, fiber is also effective at absorbing water, and makes food waste easier to remove by the body. You could say that fiber acts as a "lubricant" in digestion.

Apart from fiber, several studies have shown certain substances in fruit are also good for improving digestion. A study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners reports that sorbitol, a sugar alcohol contained in fruit, can help increase water levels and bowel frequency. Apples, pears, and plums (prunes) are some types of fruit that are rich in sorbitol.
