Apples are rich in fiber. Apples are an easy way to increase the fiber content of your diet and alleviate the problem of constipation.
2. Citrus Fruits
Citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits are a refreshing snack and a good source of fiber.
Citrus fruits are also rich in the soluble fiber pectin, especially in the peel.
It’s best to eat citrus fruits fresh to make sure you get the maximum amount of fiber and vitamin C.
3. Sweet Potato
Sweet potatoes contain a good amount of fiber to help alleviate constipation.
Sweet potatoes contain mostly insoluble fiber in the form of cellulose and lignin.
Sweet potato can be roasted, steamed, boiled or mashed. It can be used in any recipe that calls for regular potatoes.
4. Flaxseeds
Flaxseeds have been used for centuries as a traditional remedy for constipation, thanks to their natural laxative effects. Flaxseeds are rich in both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, making them an ideal digestive aid. You can eat flaxseed on cereal or yogurt and use it in muffins, breads and cakes.
