Flaxseed Powder (Laxative)
Flaxseed has been known as one of the best ways to relieve constipation for centuries. The whole seeds contain anywhere from 6 to 12 percent mucilage. Mucilage is a slimy, gum-like compound that provides a temporarily soothing and protective coating along the entire digestive tract. The high content of Flaxseed mucilage protects mucous membranes because of its softening effects and the effects of overlays. Fibers in flaxseed due to the absorption of liquids, increase stool volume and subsequently stimulate the tensile receptors present in the intestinal wall and also increase the intestinal mucous membranes and thereby effect its melanin effect. Flaxseeds (also known as linseeds) are mainly known for their laxative effect on the bowels. Being full of soluble fibre, they help to create bulk in the stool and keep bowel movements regular, thereby preventing any build-up or constipation.
When bowel movements are not properly performed, or the number of moves is less than normal, constipation occurs. The average time of each intestinal movement varies from person to person. So that one may be able to fend off three times a day, and another person may be able to fend off twice a week. In general, if an individual has no disposal during the 3 days, it is a long time for it. After this time, the feces have become hard and difficult to fend off and constipation will occur. Constipation solution for treatment is better to be natural and herbal with no side effect.
The majority of people do not need specific examinations to diagnosis constipation, but few who face problems need examinations. If you suffer to constipation for more than two weeks, you need to refer to a doctor to identify and eliminate the main source of illness. If constipation is due to colon cancer, early detection of time and treatment is very important.
To prevent this disease, different tasks can be done, some of which include:
Choose a suitable diet with high fiber content. Fruits, vegetables, wheat are rich in fiber. Fiber and water help colon to move the feces forward.
Eat 1.5-2 liters of water and other drinks daily (unless you are banned by a doctor). The liquids containing caffeine have Dehydration effects, so avoid the use of these fluids until the intestinal function returns. Some people also have to refrain from consuming milk and dairy products. Also, you should exercise regularly. When you feel to need to discharge, don’t stop, go quickly to the toilet and fend off yourself.
For many centuries Senna has been used to remove constipation. The Senna is an endemic herb to North Africa, and its leaves and seeds have medicinal properties. The Senna is known for its laxative properties and is a natural laxative product.
