Constipation:

To help fight off this uncomfortable symptom: Fiber, fiber and more fiber!

The trick is to stick to food with a high fiber content so things, shall we say, move along quicker.

Barbara Bradley Bolen says that the best part about fiber-intake is that, “apart from preventing constipation, it works wonders for overall body health too.”

Therefore if you are suffering from constipation due to IBS then you should increase your intake of fruits, nuts, vegetables and whole grain and it should work wonders.

The best constipation foods to eat are:

Prunes,
Cherry Juice,
Other fruits (particularly apricots, figs, peaches, and pears)
Brown rice
Wholegrain, seeded bread
Beans & pulses (such as kidney beans, pinto beans and canella beans)
Dark green veg (particularly Kale, Spinach and Chard)
Vegetables (such as asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, beans, peas, pumpkin and squash)

You can also try adding a spoonful of ground flaxseed to your meals. It's easy to come by in the supermarkets or health food shops.
