From Mangoes to Curd: Home Remedies to Relieve Constipation
Do you suffer from sluggish bowel movement? Constipation has become a common problem among people these days. Lack of exercise, less consumption of water, eating less amounts of fiber and more junk food, can all lead to a constipated stomach among people.
Even though it has become such a common phenomenon among people with sedentary lifestyles, people feel too awkward to talk about it. While going to the doctor for constipation might cause embarrassment, leaving it untreated is also not an option. Constipation causes abdomen pain, accumulation of toxins in the body, bloating and much more.
Home Remedies to Relieve Constipation
Here are some home remedies that can help improve your bowel movement and provide some relief.
1. Go the Ayurvedic Way
Triphala is an Ayurvedic natural laxative that helps with digestive issues like constipation. It is available as a brown coloured powder prepared with amla, harad and baheda.
You can also mix triphala in water and can drink it in the morning on an empty stomach. You can also add a dash of honey to this mixture of water and triphala if it tastes bitter.
2. King of Fruits to the Rescue
Mangoes can really help get things moving. They are great remedies for constipation. The fruit contains phytochemicals that are responsible for faster bowel movement.
Having a medium-sized mango a day would help your constipated stomach.
3. Have Some Lemon Juice In Water
Lemon contains vitamin c which can help in pulling water into the gut. This helps in softening the stool and makes the bowel movement easier and faster. However, it may be effective for some people only.
According to Nutitionist Kavita Devgan, lemon juice and water make the body alkaline. When the stomach is alkaline, it can solve all the stomach related problems.
4. Increase The Good Bacteria In Your Gut
Curd and buttermilk (chaach) are things that can help in increasing the good bacteria in your stomach.
