What is constipation?

Constipation is the difficult and/or infrequent passing of stools._ There are a number of possible causes of constipation: not enough fiber in the diet (the most common), not enough fluid intake, or lack of physical activity (especially in the elderly). Chronic constipation may be due to the recurrent use of laxatives or drinking too much coffee or alcohol.

A person can be considered constipated if she has bowel movement three times or less per week. Going longer than three days without a bowel movement can be a concern, as after three days the feces become harder and more difficult to pass.

Recommended supplements for constipated people

In a study conducted in Japan, Magnesium has been found useful to fight constipation. It is notably useful to supplement with magnesium if you suffer from chronic constipation, as magnesium does not have an immediate effect, but is rather a medium to long-term help. If you are constipated only during a few days, it might be better to have a look at herbs with laxative properties. You can find more information on the page dedicated to herbs for constipation.

Dosage

Start with 500mg per day, and see how it goes. Taking too much magnesium can have a laxative effect. If this happens, simply reduce the intake by cutting the pill, or taking only once every two days.
