Constipation and diet


Constipation, or the difficulty to empty stool is most often related to the lack of finer in the diet. Including right amount of green leafy and fibrous vegetables such as spinach, plantain stem etc can greatly help.

However, constipation can also be because of many other reasons – including not drinking enough water and sometimes more serious issues in large intestine. While constipation is not life threatening, regular constipation inspite of enough fibre may need medical attention as it may be precursor to other issues

Constipation can cause anal fissures and sometimes, even rectal bleeding or piles. Constipation can also occur due to a meal excessive in meat and sometimes dairy products too. Avoid too much alcohol or caffeine if you have constipation difficulties.

Isabgol is a great additive to food that can reduce constipation. This white colored husk, extracted from the seeds of a herb (Plantago Ovata) has both soluble and insoluble fibres that absorb moisture and binds with stool thereby relieving constipation and anal fissures. Isabgol is also used in Ayurveda for its medicinal properties.
