Help For Constipation

Updated on July 20, 2017

Causes of constipation

Constipation can make you really miserable. As someone who has always had a slow bowel, I can sympathise with you.

  • Bloating
  • Sore Tummy
  • Feeling Sick
  • Straining
  • Lack of energy
  • Pain when passing a motion
  • Motions are dry and hard

These can all be symptoms of constipation and the fact that things in your bowel are not moving well.

Constipation is usually when someone goes to the toilet much less frequently than normal and has difficulty passing a motion.

How often do you go?

  • Everyone has a different pattern.
  • Many people go once a day
  • Some go twice a day
  • Some people go 3 times a week

You will know what is normal for you and when things are not normal.

Millions of people have been constipated and one in ten people will become constipated often.

Most of the causes of constipation are diet related and may also be caused by a depletion in some minerals. There are some other causes

Just Potent Magnesium Supplement

Magnesium cures constipation.

Many years ago after suffering with constipation for along time I read an e book on constipation and one of the main pieces of advice was to take a magnesium supplement.

Well I thought it can do no harm to try and with my nursing experience and medical knowledge I knew that often our bodies are lacking in the nutrients that help it. To function properly.

Magnesium works by relaxing your bowel and drawing more water into your bowel.

This in turn helps soften and and will bulk up your stools and therefore make them a lot easier to pass .Usually 400 to 500mg a day is enough to have the desired affect After taking magnesium for just a few days drinking more water and trying to eat a more healthy diet my problem with constipation went away and I felt so much better. My energy levels especially increased .
