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
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.


Apples
Apples, especially their skin have good amounts of fibre in them which can help ease out constipation.


Plums
This monsoon fruit also can help treat constipation.

 

Pears
Like apples, pear too has ample fibre especially in their skin. Eating this fruit will regulate your digestive system.

 

Berries
Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries have a good amount of fibre which can help ease out your constipation symptoms. These fruits are also low in calorie which makes them healthy anyway.

 

Banana
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.
