Chronic constipation and other digestive disorders can completely take over your life; they can prevent you from focusing at work or having a great time at a social event.

An Overview of Constipation
What causes constipation?
Food moves through the colon or the large intestine in the body. Normally the colon absorbs water while forming a stool. Constipation stems from the sluggish or slow contractions of the colon’s muscle. When too much water is absorbed in the colon, it leads to constipation.
Causes of Constipation:
- Lack of movement & exercise
- Less fiber in the diet
- Not enough water
- Delaying the bowel movement
- An imbalance in the gut diversity
- Lifestyle change & travel
- Taking too many laxatives
5 Tips to Fight Constipation>
Increase the fiber content in your meals
Eat fresh vegetables and fruits regularly; they are full of fiber. Opt for nutritious and fiber-rich meals consisting of whole grains like oats and whole-wheat bread. Snack on dried fruits like apricots and prunes to help draw water into the gastrointestinal tract and soften the stool to get things moving.
So, now the next logical question is ‘How much fiber?” The best place to look for answers is in your gut. Your personal Digbi Health coach works with your unique Gut & Gene report to recommend foods and lifestyle modifications specific to your body. These food recommendations work as medicine for your body to reverse or reduce digestive issues and other illnesses for an improved quality of life.
Try a Probiotic
Think of probiotics as your belly’s best friend. They are found in fermented foods like yogurts, sauerkraut, miso, and pickled veggies. Probiotics aid in digestion, lubricate the GI tract, rebalance the gut flora, and reduce the transit time of your stool. Pick a probiotic to ease the burdensome feeling brought on by constipation.
Probiotics are essential for good microbes to fight bad bugs. They keep us healthy, alleviate inflammation, improve our immunity, break down our food, and prevent bad bacteria from entering our blood by strengthening the cells that line our gut.
Move Around When You Can
Walk and move as much as possible to stimulate the intestine muscles. Movement allows the intestine muscle to wake from their stupor and speed up the process of stool passing through the body.
Digbi Health Programs betters your gut health, reverses constipation, and aids in weight loss by recommending the best exercises for your body based on your unique genes and gut composition.
Up Your Water Intake
Water is the elixir of life; it allows for a smoother passage of your stool by providing moisture and lubrication. About 60% of your body is water. Consuming enough water greatly helps reduce the risk of constipation, urinary tract infections, and developing kidney stones. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of water for women and 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) a day for men.
Get Your Gut Microbiome Mapped
Constipation can be a real challenge and leave you in distress. It could also be a symptom of a larger issue at hand. Keep in mind, symptoms only mask the cause. The sure-shot way to end the silent suffering is to address them through a Gut test that offers an inside look into your gut.
