Which fruits are good for treating constipation?
Hi, I am 23 years old. I am suffering from chronic constipation. It is giving me headache. I have tried many drugs. Nothing has worked. I would like to know about fruits which will be beneficial for me to treat my constipation. Please help.
@paromita Oranges are packed with vitamin C and fibres, which help increase the bulk in your stool. They are also a good source of naringenin, a flavonoid that (according to some studies) can work like a laxative. Pack them for snacks or throw them into salads. Juicing oranges may cost you a good dose of fiber. Therefore, it is best to have them whole and raw.
The high-fibre content in bananas may work wonders to soothe effects of constipation. They can help you push out the waste better by making stools easier to pass.
Raspberries provide 8 grams of fibre in one cup, as per the USDA. According to the book, 'Healing Foods', eating mulberries can strengthen the digestive tract and ease bloating and constipation. Berries are both delightful and nutritious if you can tuck into them raw, or use them as a topping for your cereals. Figs are not available all year round, which is why when it is in season you must make most of it. Figs are a fantastic source of fibre, which are vital for maintaining a healthy digestive system.
