Constipation is a general problem among people. It is a condition of less frequency in the excretion of bowel from the body. It mostly occurs due to less water content in the digestive system. It can be chronic or acute. Constipation can be really troublesome if the problem persists for a longer period of time. But, it can be treated easily with some home remedies that work best in order to cure this problem.


What Cause Constipation?

Typically, the waste of digestion (stool) gets out of the body through intestines by muscular contraction. In the colon, most of water and salt of the waste are reabsorbed because it is necessary for the body. However, when the intestines absorb too much water or the colon contracts slowly, the stool becomes dry, hard and difficult to pass through the colon. This is the root cause of constipation.

1. Baking Soda:


Baking soda is also a very good one among home remedies for constipation as it is a bicarbonate and allows the air to pass out from the stomach. Besides, the pressure aches are much relieved.

How To Do:

  • Mix a teaspoon of baking soda in a quarter cup of warm water.
  • Drink it straight down.
  • For some reason, this seems to work better than taking sips over a period of time.

2. Apple or Apple Cider Vinegar:


Apples contain pectin which will both add bulk to your stools and have a laxative effect. Apple cider vinegar is fermented apples and has most of the same beneficial properties of an apple.

How To Do:

  • Eat an apple a day, or take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar twice a day with a glass of water.
  • Both methods are proven to relieve constipation.
