For a person to have normal BMs they need to intake 25 to 35 grams of fiber daily. It needs to be a combination of soluble and isoluble fiber.
Soluble fiber is the type that bulks up your stool and insoluble fiber causes muscle contractions so the digested food is moved through your intestines.
I hope you know the differences between these fiber and the foods that make up each type.
You also need to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water daily along with a moderate amount of exercise!!
Has any Doctor diagnosed the reason for your constpation for so long?
