It has been found that drinking certain healthy smoothies can easily rectify digestive malfunctioning. In fact, very few things are healthier than a fresh smoothie made with whole foods. These smoothies make pooping not only an effortless activity but also ensure that you eliminate waste from your body properly. For these smoothies, if possible, use organic ingredients as they are not tainted with pesticides and are high in nutrients.
The Constipation-Stopping Smoothie
If you are passing motions less than three times a week, you must be constipated. When you constipate, pooping is a difficult task. Your poop is smaller and harder than on other days, and passing them causes a lot of discomfort. Constipation is not a disease, just a symptom. It occurs due to the absorption of too much water in the colon or weakening of the colon muscles. Constipation is often regarded as a symptom of dehydration, lack of enough fiber in the diet, inactive lifestyle, irritable bowel syndrome, and it might be the result of taking certain medicines as well.
To get relief from constipation, combine these ingredients in a blender and make a smoothie.
1. 1 cup organic apple juice (preferably fresh-squeezed)
2. 1 cup of crushed ice (using filtered water)
3. 1 cup of organic Kefir or plain organic yogurt
4. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
5. 6 pitted prunes (dried plums)
6. Pinch of nutmeg
Take your blender and put the ice in it. Then, add all the other ingredients mentioned above and blend them well. Drink the smoothie immediately.
