10 Foods That Will Help You To Get Rid Of Constipation

#8 Oatmeal (and other whole grains)

Oats are known to be full of soluble fiber, can which easily and quickly dissolve in water, and will help in softening the stool. This also allows the stool to pass through the intestines smoothly and is the best way to deal with a constipated system. The fiber helps to increase the bulk of the stool which makes for easy movement.

Oatmeal can taste quite plain by itself, but if you add other healthy toppings (as seen in the picture above) it can make for a delicious and healthy breakfast.

#7 Spinach

Another one of nature’s great regulators here. Adding just a cup of spinach leaves into your salad or pasta is all you need to help get your bowels functioning as they should be. This is because spinach is a leafy vegetable that is well-known for its fibrous properties.

Spinach also contains a reasonably high amount of magnesium which helps greatly in cleaning out your system. Magnesium is also found in most laxatives but consuming it this way is a much healthier method. What’s more – spinach tastes good, and is incredibly versatile as an ingredient! Try using it as the ‘bed’ for a healthy salad, and maybe combine it with some other food items on this list.

#6 Nuts

Not everyone likes them – especially those with weaker teeth – but it is healthy and beneficial to consume nuts like pistachios, peanuts, almonds, and/or walnuts as often as you can.

Whether you incorporate it in your cooking, salad, or just raw, nuts are known to have many fibrous properties which help in passing stool easily. They are also a great source of energy and healthy fats. Just make sure it’s not salted peanuts that you’re eating a lot of – this will overload your body with sodium.
