Constipation affects all of us at certain times, however, many people suffer with this all their lives. Here are some simple tips to help get things moving.
1. Drink plenty of water between 2 – 3 litres per day. Ensuring the water is room temperature as cold water is very bad for digestion.
2. linseeds, flax seeds and chai seeds, very good sources of fibre – 1-2 tbl per day – add to homemade cereal, porridge or a green smoothie.
3. lots of vegetables and fruit (keep skin on fruit and veg) – especially raw leafy greens – eating raw is very beneficial to your digestive system so have raw every day if you can.
4. probiotics – good natural live yoghurt, organic miso, sauerkraut, tofu…. fermenting foods are so important to support your immune system, help heal, repair and aid digestion
5. friendly grains – quinoa, buckwheat and millet
6. reduce animal products as these types of foods slow digestion
