Constipation is one of the most common and easily noticeable sign showing something is not right with the stomach, intestines, or the overall digestive system. It is not a disease or illness as such, although it can be a symptom of other digestive tract disorders or infections.

It is, however, something that occurs in people of all ages but more common in elderly people. So here are the 10 best methods to get rid of constipation:

1. Water

As simple as this may sound, it remains the number one cure for constipation. Making sure that you consume food with a lot of water and also drink a good amount of it throughout the day would go a long way to help you keep the bowel moving normally.

Water should never be replaced with soda or other drinks. Pure, distilled, spring, or traditional tap water is the key.

2. Fiber-Rich Foods

7. Molasses And Honey
