The subject of poo is somewhat of a taboo, and when it does happen to be the topic of discussion, the context is usually humorous. However, whether we like to admit it or not, poo is a major part of our daily lives, and difficulties with it can not only pose a major nuisance, but something even much worse.
Here are a few ways to make this delicate process as smooth and seamless as possible. With this knowledge, poop can go back to what it's meant to be - a source of relief rather than stress.
Eat More Fiber
Fiber makes up for a large portion of the bulk of our poo, which is why when our diet lacks fiber, we have less to excrete, even though it doesn't feel like it. The situation is similar to vomiting and gaging on an empty stomach.
Plants, rich in fiber, include berries, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and other healthy foods that you should be eating anyway.
Drink A lot of Water
The practice of drinking plenty of water isn't just some fad in the wellness space. Besides its many benefits to our health and appearance, water, especially when it's warm, makes your poo softer and helps your body push it through by unblocking obstructions and relaxing your muscles.
Herbs and Spices
Some herbs' and spices' appetizing and salutary functions are well-known, however, what isn't is their ability to facilitate food breakdown and alleviate digestive difficulties. Such herbs and spices include black pepper, oregano, rosemary, cayenne, turmeric, coriander seeds, and more.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is famous for its acidity, but that quality isn't just relevant in the kitchen, but also in the bathroom, as it stimulates stomach acid production, which is essential for food breakdown and disposal at a later point.
Magnesium relaxes both the muscles and the nervous system, which is why it's so effective measure against constipation.
