1. Prune juice:
Prune is very high in dietary fiber.
Prunes, or dried plums, are well-known for their laxative effects on the body.
A research reported that eating 100 g of prunes per day improved how often people produced stool, as well as the consistency of the stool, compared with psyllium, which is a common OTC soluble fiber-containing laxative.
It is worth noting that the California Dried Plum Board funded this research.
Prunes are very high in dietary fiber, but much of it is lost in the juice-making processes.
Instead, prune juice acts as a laxative because it contains sorbitol, magnesium, and potassium, all of which improve bowel function.
Because prunes are dried and sealed, people can buy them online.
Here is how to make prune juice
300 g prunes
2 liters of water
Fill a pot with 2 liters of water. Add 300 g of prunes to the pot. Heat the pot over medium or high heat. Once boiling, reduce to low heat, cover with a lid, and simmer for about 2 minutes.
Pour prunes and water into a blender and blend until smooth.
If desired, pour the blended mixture through a sieve to remove the larger pieces.
Pour prune juice into bottles and store in the refrigerator.
Make it an easy green smoothie
To add extra fiber to prune juice, and to boost the nutrient content, try adding spinach and cucumber to make a laxative smoothie.
2 cups raw spinach
1 cup prune juice
1 cup chopped cucumber
Add all ingredients to a blender and combine until smooth.
Add water to thin the smoothie if it is too thick.
2. Lemon juice:
Lemons are high in vitamin C, an antioxidant compound that pulls water into the gut.
Increasing water content inside the gut can help soften stools and stimulate bowel movements.
Mild dehydration can cause constipation.
Increasing water intake may help relieve constipation.
Drinking a mixture of lemon and water may help relieve constipation in some people.
People can add lemon juice to their diets and keep their bodies hydrated with lemon water.
Use fresh, locally sourced lemons where possible.
Here is how to make lemon water
To make lemon water, simply mix the juice of half a lemon into a glass of warm water.
Try drinking this mixture at night and first thing in the morning.
Do not forget to drink water throughout the day.
3. Apple juice
Apple juice may help to relieve constipation.
Consuming apples may help relieve constipation because they are high in both dietary fiber and sorbitol.
According to the U.S. Department of AgricultureTrusted Source, one medium apple contains 4.4 g of fiber and 18.91 g of sugar.
In fact apples contain vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin A, among other nutrients.
Apples also contain pectin, which is a water-soluble fiber that may promote bowel movements.
Apple juice contains relatively high quantities of fructose compared with other fruits. Drinking large amounts of apple juice can cause digestive discomfort in people who have sensitive bowels.
Juicing apples also significantly reduces their fiber content, which may make apple juice less effective than other juices for constipation relief.
Use fresh, locally sourced, organic apples where possible.
Here is how to make apple juice
People can juice apples whole and drink it, or they can add apple juice to other juices or smoothies.
When making apple juice at home, consider leaving the skin on for extra fiber content.
That said, only small amounts will remain after the juicing process.
Extra juice ingredients
When making juices at home or buying them in a supermarket, add or look out for the following ingredients to provide even more beneficial nutrients, add fiber, and boost constipation relief:
apple cider vinegar
