Walking can help keep your body regular. If you are able to walk outside where you live--great! Sometimes an app like 7 minutes of exercise helps. Or YouTube free yoga--even 10 minutes. Staying hydrated. Having foods with fiber. If you are not improving then see your MD.
Magnesium!! If you ever get tested ask for the RBC Magnesium Test, not serum. Most of society is deficient in mag, you can take it to bowel tolerance. Helps tons!
I watched a documentary on just this subject, and by far the most effective solution was PRUNES... Personally, I’ve found Psyllium Husk Capsules helpful.
Don’t eAt too much fibre that can block you up too, walking is the best thing gets digestive system moving x
Ok thank u I won’t touch to much fire then
Drink plenty of water too hard small pellet like poo is sign of it drying out in colon from either slow transit too much or not enough fibre not being active or ibs x
I haven’t been active much coz of this Covid-19 and wasn’t sure about getting out and about just to walk about but they said it be fine
I found that taking probiotics keep you very regular.
Hi 😀 I take a syrup drink called lactulose which I get from the GP. It tastes a bit like toffee, not a disgusting taste for once. It keeps your stools soft. Also drink fresh orange which helps x
There are 2 types of fibre: insoluble and soluble
SOLUBLE fibre absorbs water to form a gel-like substance inside the digestive system. This softens your stools and supports regular bowel movements, but too much can cause constipation. It helps you feel fuller.
Some sources of soluble fibre are:
Beans/Peas/Legumes - black beans, butter beans & kidney beans
Fruit - avocado, pears, figs, nectarines, apricots, apples & guava
Vegetables - brussels sprouts, sweet potato, broccoli, turnips & carrots
Seeds - flaxseed & sunflower seeds
Grains - barley & oats
INSOLUBLE fibre is commonly known as "roughage" and isn't broken down by the digestive system. It can help speed up the passage of food through the stomach and intestine and can help relieve constipation.
Some sources of insoluble fibre are:
Grains - brown rice, couscous, oat bran, wholegrain pasta, wholemeal bread & wheat bran
Vegetables - dark leafy greens, carrots, radishes, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, celery, cucumber & courgettes
Beans/Peas/Legumes - kidney beans, edamame, split peas, butter beans & black beans
Fruit - banana, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, coconut, apples, pears, avocado, dried fruits & passion fruit
Seeds - sunflower seeds & flax seed
Nuts - almond & walnuts
Why is it important to know this?
Well digestion really, you see too much of one fibre type may lead to bowel movement issues, and cause "complications" -so if you're having issues then switch up your game
