Ingredients Used In The Pear Smoothie For Constipation

High fiber ingredients! Fiber is vital when it comes to relieving constipation. 

Here are the ingredients I used:

  • Pear: Why are pears good for constipation? –  Pears contain several compounds that improve digestion, including fiber, sorbitol, and fructose. These fruits also contain high levels of water, which can help to ease digestion and prevent constipation.
  • 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.
  • Oat Milk: Oat milk mostly helps blending and make the smoothie drinkable, however, it’s also there to hydrate you. When you are constipated, you really need to be drinking more fluids. 
  • Raw Honey: Raw honey contains dietary antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory effects and many other benefits.
  • Almond Butter: Consuming almonds might offer relief to individuals experiencing constipation or help with consistent bowel movements. This is thanks to the significant fiber content found in almonds.
