What casues constipation and how can prevent it?
I have had it for a while now and im also vegeterian but I had it before that, what causes constipation? and what are some easy ways to get rid of it without going to the docter?
Gluten intolerance can cause constipation. If you’re a vegetarian, you likely eat a lot of bread and pasta to make up for your meat. If you have other health problems or symptoms or if your constipation gets to a point where it’s really bothersome, you could try a gluten free diet to see if it’s causing your problems.
Another thing I’ve found to really help with constipation is green smoothies. There are lots of websites dedicated to green smoothie recipes but my favorite is 1 apple, a handful of fresh spinach, and another type of fruit, like berries or a pear. Add a cup of water and some ice and blend in the blender for a few minutes. You can’t taste the spinach, it just tastes like fruit, but the fiber from the fruits cleans you right out. I started drinking them a couple months ago and I haven’t had constipation since. The theory behind the smoothies is that the nutrients in the spinach are much more available when they’re ground because our teeth can’t grind them enough to get all the nutrients. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but it’s really effective for constipation and all the fiber really lowers your appetite. It’s great for dieting. Let me know if you need any more suggestions!
