Best Smoothies for Constipation

Digestive issues are very unpleasant and uncomfortable. Bloating, flatulence and diarrhea are common problems among people with IBS or people with sensitive stomachs.

Constipation is another common digestive problem and even individuals with healthy digestive tract experience it every once in a while.

Start your day with one of those smoothies and it would not take long for the results to occur. Let us know in the comments below which one is your favorite! Another thing that needs a change, if you are constipated often, is your diet. Here is a short list of the foods you must avoid if you don’t want to be constipated.

  • Milk and Dairy Products – For some individuals dairy products cause constipation, especially for those, who are sensitive to the proteins found in cow’s milk. If you have IBS or other digestive problems, this should not matter to you, since dairy products are not low FODMAP approved and you are probably not consuming them anyway.
  • Processed Grains – White bread, white pasta and white rice contain less fiber then whole grains, which makes them a lot more constipating. Always look for whole grains when shopping groceries or when eating at restaurants.
  • Red meat – Generally, red meat is low in fiber and high in fats, which is definitely a combination you want to avoid, if you are constipated often.
  • Foods that contain gluten – Those are not necessarily dangerous for everyone, but if you have IBS, celiac disease or NCGS, consuming gluten or wheat can cause constipation.
  • Fast and fried food – Fried foods or food from fast food restaurants usually contain a lot of salt and fats, and very little fiber. This unhealthy combination slows down digestion and could lead to constipation.

 

Two other important factors that help relieve constipation are drinking enough water and being physically active. Water has key roles in digestion, such as keeping the food you eat moving through your intestines and making your intestines smooth and flexible. Not having enough water could definitely cause digestive discomfort, so make sure you consume at least 2 liters a day. Physical activity increases your metabolism, stimulates the muscles in the GI tract and increases blood flow to your organs. All of this helps move waste through the intestines, so pick a sport or exercises you like and get moving at least 3 times a week.

If you want some extra help to speed up the process and ensure that you are saying a farewell to constipation, try out our low FODMAP colon cleanse and probiotic capsules.
