Constipation

While many people never give something as simple as using the toilet much thought, for those that suffer from constipation this simple routine can often be painful. Although constipation is not actually a disease, it can be linked to other health problems because it means that toxins are not being efficiently eliminated from your body. Fortunately most cases of constipation can be addressed by diet and lifestyle changes and the use of constipation supplements. + Read more >

Use of conventional laxatives may address the constipation in the short term, but even laxatives made from natural sources can cause the body to become dependant on them for bowel movements. The safest laxative products to use are bulk forming products. These constipation supplements include fibre supplements and flax seeds to help increase the bulk and water content of the stool. It is important to balance any bulk-forming constipation supplements with sufficient fluids. As often as possible, this fluid should be in the form of 8 glasses of water a day. Drinks containing caffeine and alcohol should be limited as these are dehydrating and draw water out of the bowels, making stool hard. For stool that is hard, the natural constipation supplement alternative to pharmaceutical softeners are high quality, cold pressed essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids contribute to the overall health of the intestinal cells as well as having numerous other health benefits for the body as a whole. Vitamin B complex supplements are essential for the digestive and nervous system and should be part of every daily supplement program. It is also important to promote beneficial bacteria in the gut and this can be accomplished by using probiotics regularly. Not only do probiotics restore the levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut but they also help in proper digestion of food. The use of digestive enzymes will also aid in the digestion of food and help prevent constipation. Magnesium is needed for normal muscle function including intestinal muscles, and a deficiency in magnesium can contribute to constipation. Magnesium has the added benefit of helping to protect the health of your bones as well. In addition to taking natural constipation supplements, it is important to eat a whole-foods diet that is high in fibre and exercise regularly. Avoiding refined white flour and allergenic foods can also help you avoid constipation. To help clear the colon in cases of long-term constipation it can be helpful to use a cleansing and detoxification program. This will help cleanse the colon and rid the body of all the toxins that have built up over time, allowing constipation supplements to help maintain the health of your colon more easily. Whether you are looking for constipation supplements to treat temporary constipation or a more long-term solution that includes detox and cleansing, Body Energy Club has the vitamins and supplements you need at Canada’s best online prices. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >

  • AOR Solu-Fibre Prebiotic Nutritional Supplements

    AOR Solu-Fibre Prebiotic Nutritional Supplements

    Fibersol-2 is a prebiotic soluble fibre. Such fibre has been found to help regulate glucose metabolism, lower plasma cholesterol levels and blood pressure, reduce luminal pH, stimulate the immune system, and promote the growth of beneficial gastrointestinal flora. Fibers are an important part of a healthy diet. Dietary fiber, also known as nonstarch polysaccharide, refers to substances found in plants that are not digestible by the enzymes of the human gastrointestinal tract. It is an important part of a healthy diet, with effects on the gastrointestinal and cardiovascular system, as well as others. The current recommendation for fiber intake is 35 to 30 g per day. However, the average daily intake of fiber in the US and many other Western countries only reaches about half this amount, around 15 g/day.
