Fruits to Treat Constipation
We have all felt those unpleasant symptoms of constipation at some point. Bloating, abdomen cramps, severe stomach pain or just general uneasiness are often the most common symptoms of constipation. While treating it remains the first priority, one often finds it difficult to eat during such tough times. To ease out your dilemma, we suggest the following fruits if you're suffering from constipation. These fruits are not only easy to digest but they are also filled with fibre which helps treat constipation.
Dried fruits like prunes, dates, figs, raisins and even apricots are a good source of fibre. Prunes in particular not only contain high amounts of fibre but it also contains sorbitol which acts like a natural laxative.
Bananas are also a good fruit to treat mild constipation but it is extremely important that you pick on ripe bananas only. Unripe bananas can worsen the situation.
