Digestive Problems – Constipation
Colon cancer is the number two killer in America and yet most health care professions believe it is the easiest cancers that can be totally preventable simply through what we eat.
So, what is constipation?
Sometimes constipation can be the cause of many other ailments, some of which can be very serious. Simple constipation is very common and easy to treat.
Likely causes or triggers
- Digestive enzyme deficiency
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Frequent use of laxatives
- Lack of dietary fiber
- Lack of exercise
- Not enough water
- Antibiotics, steroids and other drugs
Some people have deep rooted and more established constipation and should get checked by a doctor. Most cases are more simple and temporary in which case the top 3 recommendations are adding dietary fiber to your diet, drink more water, get more exercise.
Fiber supplements or food?
You need a variety of fiber so eating a wide variety of carbs is better. Adding foods that are rich in calcium and magnesium are also on the recommended list. Getting fiber from supplements is possible as well. Our recommended supplement is MX Kiwi Biotic which is made entirely from the kiwifruit covers many of the recommended criteria.
Kiwifruit is a true “superfood”
Consider that a large kiwifruit has 3.2 grams of dietary fiber. Loaded with minerals such as calcium and magnesium and also contains many important vitamins, this is the most nutrient-dense of all fruits. Learn more about the benefits of the kiwifruit.
Colon health is key
All body waste ends up at the colon. What happens when it gets there depends on how well and proper your colon is functioning. The waste must be collected and formed into a stool so it can easily and quickly get out of there ASAP. Without proper amounts of dietary fiber this won’t happen.
Scientific research excited about prebiotics
There is a lot of focus on studies with prebiotics because scientists know what happens in the intestinal tract has major consequences to our health. Specifically, they are looking at how prebiotics may be helping with things such as speeding waste transit time, inhibiting growth of dangerous bacteria in the large intestine, and helping us maintain healthy weight just to name a few.
How do prebiotics work?
One of the keys is the soluble fiber mentioned above. Fiber does not get digested anywhere along the intestinal tract and will enter the colon in tact. There it starts a fermentation process which feeds the good bacteria and also stops the bad bacteria from sticking to the intestinal wall, where it can form potentially dangerous cells that can turn into cancerous polyps.
But the insoluble fiber also helps colon function by mopping up waste and other dangerous toxins that may otherwise escape back into the bloodstream. So, as you can see, prebiotic fiber does an extremely important job to keep everything working as it should in the large intestine… after all, this is where the rubber hits the road… so to speak!
