If you have experienced the discomfort of constipation, you probably have tried over the counter laxatives. However these laxatives may not be the solution.
Constipation can often be due to a number of factors. It might simply be the product of a poor diet, but physical inactivity, pregnancy, illness, travel and some medications may also be the cause. Since laxative abuse can lead to dependency a permanent change in your bowel frequency, and can also interfere with your bodies ability to absorb other medications and nutrients, it is important to consider all of these factors before relying on commercial laxatives.
Always start with a diet that is rich in fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of fluids and exercise regularly. Then choose a natural approach that will provide a safe, effective and gentle relief from constipation. Unlike many laxatives, these products will not interfere with the effectiveness and function of pre and probiotics.
