Ayurvedic remedies for constipation

According to Ayurveda, undigested food accumulates in the stomach and large intestines and impairs Vata Dosha, thus obstructing the digestive tract. When the digestive tract is obstructed, the body will not be able to facilitate proper bowel movement, thereby leading to constipation. Ayurveda has proven elements that help relieve symptoms of constipation and improve the overall quality of life.

  • Sat Isabgol contains 100% dietary fibre which helps to reduce cholesterol (on regular use) in addition to treating constipation
  • Powdered Pysillium-based natural laxative is used for relief from constipation. It is specially formulated, triple refined Isabgol. Isabgol powder is sweetened with sucralose to make it tastier. It is low in calories, natural and safe and is available in orange flavour for improved taste.
  • Trifgol is an Isabgol based natural fibre laxative which also contains the goodness of Triphala (Amlaki, Hareetaki and Vibheetaki). Besides laxative action, Trifgol has other multiple health benefits as well.
  • Triphala is a combination of three well known herbs - Amla, Harade and Bahera. These three fruits help in smooth bowel functioning and relieve constipation.

Positive lifestyle changes

  • Increase your intake of fibre with a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts.
  • Drink 7-8 glasses of water each day, as it helps in clearing the digestive tract.
  • Go for daily morning and evening walks for at least 20-30 minutes each.
  • Do not remove bran from flour as bran is an insoluble fibre that helps relieves constipation.
  • Avoid refined foods like white flour, bread, pasta, pizza and white rice.
  • High -protein foods like cheese, red meat, and soybeans can cause constipation, so these must be taken with a bowl of salad and plenty of liquids.
  • Be stress-free while eating.
  • Colonic motor activity is highest at this time. Make it a habit to have motions at the same time every morning.
  • Exercise regularly.

Important: The right proportion of ingredients is important in Ayurvedic formulations. Relying on home remedies without the advice of a qualified Ayurvedic Practitioner may not be advisable.
