It is no secret to anyone that intestinal problems, which are always accompanied by a lack of stool, pain and bloating, have appeared at least once in every person..Everyone knows that these symptoms most often speak of such a common " disease' such as constipation.
Both adults and children are equally susceptible to this unpleasant and harmful disease. In this case, folk remedies will come to the aid of our intestines. The most common remedy for constipation today is prunes.
Prunes are an incredibly healthy fruit that has been widely used by people for many years. Thanks to its unique beneficial properties, prunes not only help to get rid of constipation, but also have a beneficial effect on the whole body.
Prunes are rich in potassium, vitamin A, and a variety of minerals that are responsible for activating enzymes in the digestive system. These enzymes help achieve softer waste products. Potassium protects the walls of the colon and makes them less resistant to harmful intestinal bacteria.
Prunes contain soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber slows digestion and helps the body absorb nutrients from food. Insoluble fiber helps it pass through the intestines faster. Prunes are a natural laxative. They are a source of sorbitol (a type of glucose), which takes water from the colon to soften stools and thus pass easily and painlessly. In addition, they increase the number of spontaneous bowel movements. Prunes are rich in fiber, which supports the work of the entire digestive system - they stimulate peristalsis and the wave-like movements of the intestinal muscles that move food.
Start by eating a few plums, for a total of 6-12 per day. Whether you will add them to meals or eat a few between meals - the choice is yours. You can eat 7 prunes 2 times a day. Increase the number according to the severity of the constipation. Be sure to drink a lot of water, not only to stay hydrated, but also so that the fiber from the plums can be absorbed by the digestive system. If you consume prunes, the dose is 50 grams. You can get results from 6 hours to 1 week.
