What To Add To A Smoothie To Help With Constipation:

Fiber, fiber! It really is your best friend when it comes to relieving constipation. Also, it’s essential that you drink plenty of fluids.

In this constipation smoothie recipe, we have 3 ingredients that do the job:

1. Dried Figs
2. Flaxseeds
3. Coconut Water

Now, let’s break it down… Why are figs good for constipation? – Dried figs contain loads of fiber which can help in a smooth bowel movement.

These are also rich in vitamin B6 which can indirectly ease digestion.
Flaxseeds – flaxseeds are a rich source of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water, making stools softer and easier to pass. This helps relieve constipation.

Coconut Water – is there mostly to blend and make everything drinkable, however, it’s also there to hydrate you. When you are constipated, you really need to be drinking more fluids, particularly water. So here’s where the coconut water comes into play.

So this is our formula to quickly get relief from constipation. You can also use dates in place of the figs, they are also very good at relieving constipation.
