10 Foods That Will Help You To Get Rid Of Constipation

When we have problems with our bowel movements, it can really make our day-to-day lives very difficult. Diarrhoea and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) are common complaints from a lot of people, but constipation can be just as uncomfortable, and makes the lives of millions more difficult every day.
It gives sufferers chronic discomfort in the gut, and can end up causing more serious problems if it continues for a number of days or even weeks.
The cause for conceptions, as well as the other afflictions mentioned above, can be many different things – each person’s body is different. However, a common cause of bowel-related discomfort, whether that’s going to the bathroom too often or too little, is the person’s diet.
Luckily, there are a great number of foods that we can add to our diet to ease the symptoms of constipation, or ideally prevent it from happening in the first place, as well as being of great benefit to our overall health. They’re also really easy to incorporate into your diet! Here is a list of 10 of the best:

#10 Legumes

‘Legumes’ is probably an underused word in the English language, so first of all, let us clarify what the word means. These types of vegetables include beans, lentils, and peas, They taste good, they’re filling, and most importantly, they have multiple health benefits, including easing the symptoms of constipation and related bowel problems.

Just around a half cup of beans can add upto 15 grams of fiber to your salad, soup, pasta, or whatever type of food that you put it in. However a word of warning – do not overuse legumes, as excess amounts of this can lead to gas.

I don’t know about you, but ‘eat your greens’ was always a common refrain around our house growing up, and they don’t get much greener than good ol’ Broccoli.

Broccoli is known to be a healthy vegetable and is not new to the list of healthy foods. It is extremely rich in essential vitamins, proteins, and fiber, which is great for easing the symptoms of constipation. Eating a healthy amount of broccoli will help in having a clean and good digestive system. In my personal opinion, it goes very well with steak and potatoes.
