Helpful Tips for Common Digestive Problems

Constipation

If your stool is difficult to pass, hard or infrequent (i.e., you have fewer than three bowel movements per week), you may be constipated. Helpful hints: Boost your intake of fiber, which adds bulk to stool, making it easier to pass. Drinking plenty of liquids and exercising also help. If you have a hard time getting enough fiber in your diet, consider a fiber supplement.
