Constipation can be caused by a number of factors including poor diet, physical inactivity and some medications.
When bowels refuse to move, we often run for a laxative. Problem is laxatives can cause dehydration, electrolyte and mineral imbalances and may even lead to dependence where you can’t have a bowel movement without them.
So, let’s talk about some healthy alternatives. The fist step is adopting an anti-inflammatory nutritional protocol, where you focus on eating lean meats, quality fats and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Leave all the sugars, breads and processed foods behind. Improving nutrition will work wonders but if you still find your bowels stuck, Magnesium Citrate is a great alternative to laxatives.
It works by relaxing your bowels and pulling water into your intestines. Be sure to drink plenty of water so you don’t become dehydrated when you’re taking Magnesium Citrate.
Just like having good bacteria in your gut helps with digestion of food, good bacteria also helps with the intestines and colon by breaking down the stool so it passes more easily.
Data shows that probiotics may improve transit time, stool frequency and stool consistency.
So, a daily probiotic may not only help with acid reflux but can also help you become more regular.
Always consult your healthcare provider before changing any medications.
When it comes down to it, improving what you eat is the long term solution to most health problems.
We recommend an anti-inflammatory nutritional protocol where you focus on lean meats, quality fats and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Leave the sugars, artificial sweeteners, breads, grains and processed foods behind.
