Constipation




Constipation is another very common digestive ailment often caused by lack of water, lack of vegetable fiber and lack of exercise. The large intestine is stimulated by exercise to contract, also known as peristalsis, and expel its contents. Lack of fiber from fresh vegetables and other whole foods is needed to provide bulk to move food along. A lack of beneficial bacterial flora or probiotics aggravates the problem.
