toilet paper roll, stop constipation

   About 80% of people on average suffer with constipation at some point in their life. Constipation is a condition in which they have hard feces that are hard to expel. Usually this happens because the colon absorbed too much water from food. This is because the bowel lacks the capacity to hold onto water.

Although there are treatments such as laxatives and enemas usually by changing your dietary habits you can resolve this problem.  For example by having a morning smoothie with the right ingredients will help activate your colon. Smoothies are packed with nutrients that your body needs to regenerate your colon. Although these specific ingredients are helpful addition changes can be made to the fruit for personal preference.

Smoothie Ingredients:
  *    one peeled banana
  *    4-5 strawberries or other type of berries, or fruits
  *    one tablespoon of lecithin granules
  *    one - two teaspoons of flax seed oil
  *    half and half almond milk and apple juice

In a coffee grinder, grind up around a teaspoon or less of the following:
  *    brown sesame seeds - are high in lecithin, vitamin C, E, and Calcium. They improve liver function and help in constipation
  *    sunflower seeds - are high protein, Calcium, and iron. They are one of the best natural foods which feeds the entire body.
  *    flax seeds - are high in fiber and provide bulk for your stools.
• almonds - use around 6-7 or more. They are high in Calcium, Phosphorus and have some B-vitamins. Only eat a few. They are high in calories.

   After grinding the seeds, place them in the blender and blender everything for about 3-4 minutes. If you need a little sweetness, you can add a small amount of honey. Avoid using straight sugar, honey is an antioxidant and has several healing properties for the body.
   This is a powerful smoothie to give you morning power and to activate your colon to get moving. Other dietary options can be discussed with a nutritionist or your local doctor.
