If you are constipated, you can spend the day in pain holding a bloated belly and always wondering if there will be news. Constipation causes stomach bloating, gas and pain. Are there any foods that are good for relieving constipation? We have compiled foods that help smooth bowel movements presented by the American women’s magazine ‘Women’s Health’.

The Greek yogurt

There are billions of bacteria living in our intestines, and when they don’t work properly, symptoms like indigestion, bloating and flatulence occur. The live bacteria (probiotics) in yogurt (yoghurt) add beneficial bacteria to the intestines and restore the digestive tract to health, so it is useful for people with diarrhea as well as constipation.

△ green vegetables

Vegetables such as spinach, kale, and cabbage are high in fiber. Fiber provides a feeling of fullness, stimulates the bowels, and promotes bowel movement. Because the fiber in green vegetables is water soluble, it increases stool volume and improves the intestinal environment.

The aloe vera

Aloe is a well-known natural laxative. When aloe leaves are peeled off, the sticky mucus that comes out adds moisture to the intestines, smoothens the stool, and thus facilitates bowel movements. However, be careful not to eat too much. Symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting may occur.

△ chia seeds

When you place chia seeds (chia seeds) in water, they turn into a jelly state. Chia seeds are a good condensed milk for constipation. The slimy texture of chia seeds mixed with water in the digestive tract makes it easier to pass stools.

△ linseed

One tablespoon of flaxseed contains about 3 grams of fiber. Mix flax seeds into smoothies and salads. Thanks to fiber, bowel movement will be active. Flaxseed is also rich in magnesium, which softens the stool.

△ Berries

Fresh berries have the advantage of being high in fiber and not as susceptible to gas as apples and pears. Dried apricots, figs and prunes are also excellent choices. The fiber and sugar in dried fruit stimulate a bowel movement.

Oils such as olive oil and castor oil

Eating olive oil, linseed oil, or castor oil is like lubricating your intestines. The oil will travel down your digestive tract and soften your stool. If you think you’re inhaling olive oil all the time, if you’re sick of it, use it in cooking or as a salad dressing. Be aware that 1 tablespoon contains 120 calories.

△ water

When food stays in the intestines for a long time due to constipation, too much water is absorbed, and as a result, the stool becomes hard as stone. Drink plenty of water. It softens the stool, stimulates the bowels, and encourages you to go to the bathroom.
