When you need to go to a bowel loosening mode, you should consult a professional if the constipation is caused by inflammation of appendicitis, acute exacerbation of peptic ulcer disease, gastric irritation and bleeding.

But if constipation is caused by a sedentary lifestyle or stress, you can eat certain foods and drinks that tend to work.

Prolonged use of drugs and loosening supplements may reduce their effectiveness because the body gets used to them.

Therefore, if necessary, replace the loosening agents. It is best if you can fix the problem with food and drinks.

Note that even foods that have a laxative effect, reduce their effectiveness with cooking and adding sugar.
