Struggling With Constipation? Try THIS.
We all experience it from time to time… and no one wants to talk about it.
But if you’re in the 20% of people suffering from constipation, you know how painful—and embarrassing—it can be.
Maybe you’ve been told to drink prune juice or to take fiber supplements. Or maybe the only way you can experience relief is with an enema.
If you’ve tried everything—and nothing seems to work—I’ve got good news for you today.
Researchers have found a surprisingly tasty treat that can reduce the symptoms of constipation—and for some people, it can eliminate constipation altogether.
Any number of factors can contribute to your constipation…not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough water, certain medications.
Popping laxatives could be fine for the occasional blockage, but they’re not a long-term solution if you’re suffering from ongoing issues.
Your doctor has likely encouraged you to either eat more fiber (whole wheat bread, whole grain breakfast cereal, brown rice) or take fiber supplements.
But according to a recent study, there’s something that works better than fiber—and it’s a whole lot tastier.
It’s a sweet fruit found in the produce section of your local grocery store: mangoes.
For the study, adults who were suffering from chronic constipation were divided into two groups. One ate two cups of mangoes per day for a month (that’s about one whole mango). The other added a fiber supplement to their diets.
The mango group produced better improvements in symptoms than those taking fiber.
But the mangoes did more than just reduce the symptoms. In some cases, people in the mango group stopped having constipation altogether.
Their stools returned to a better consistency (rather than the hard stools associated with constipation), and the participants returned to having more regular, consistent bowel movements.
Bottom line: If you’re ready to get you back to your “regular” self, skip the prunes and the fiber pills, and pick up some mangoes instead.
You’ll be glad you did.
