Constipation is a problem when a person passes stools less frequently compared to their normal bowel habit and defined as the inability to easily have a bowel movement. They may also experience small, hard stools and stomach cramps. Everyone will experience constipation at some point in their life. This results are a heavy, uneasy feeling, abdominal pain and cramps, and sticky or no stools.
In general every person should get bowel movements of upto 2 daily. It is not a problem of constipation if you are getting only one bowel movement a day or one time for 2 days. But it is not good to get practice of one bowel movement for 2 days. People who have been suffering from bowel movement less than per week should be treated as suffering with constipation problem.
Many factors contribute for the problem of constipation: Low fiber intake from food, Low fluid intake, A lack of physical activity, not having a sleep of 8 hours, irregular timing of meals and even many more.
Constipation is not a life threatening problem but it should not be neglect becoming chronic. Add healthy diet with more fiber in it, drink excess of water, regular exercise is also necessary. There are some products which are available for reducing the problem of constipation. For more details contact “zoomchemist”

Hi,

 

In addition for the prevention of constipation is proper and regular exercise, like a brisk half-hour walk, visiting the toilet for 15 minutes in the morning, even if you are unable to have a bowel movement. This relaxes and stimulates your digestive system. And lastly, by sitting quietly for 15 minutes after eating a meal to aid in digestion.
