Constipation Supplements

Constipation can be related to many factors, you may want to check into those factors. The following supplements will help you address the symptoms like modern medicine does, it addresses the symptoms not the cause and create more problems eventually. A more homeopathic approach would be to look deeper of what maybe the cause of your constipation. Check at other possible chronic illnesses that could cause constipation such as adrenal fatigue, candida, SIBO, or high stress. If you are taking proton pump inhibitors you may want to discontinue them and they significantly slow down digestion.


USDA Organic Triphala Powder

Good old triphala. It will work if constipation is not severe. It may take a few days before you see the effects. Be patient.

this one comes in double strength.

Swanson Fiberaid Larch Tree Arabinogalactan (Ag)

This fiber has been shown in studies to promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut while decreasing the amount of bad bacteria. Lack of good bacteria is associated with slow motility (constipation).

Anthony's Organic Acacia Senegal Powder,

This is a cheap and effective fiber. Unlike other fibers this one focuses on moving things in the gut. It will form a slippery coat that will adhere to you intestinal tracts, making everything to move more smoothly.

Bulletproof InnerFuel Prebiotic - Plant-Based Dietary Fiber for Super

This is a combination of many different fibers, some of the other mentioned in this stack. All the fibers in this supplement are well-studied, however it's very expensive for what it contains. You can give it a try to get some boost in your recovery and then go back to the other cheaper fibers. Unfortunately I havent found another supplement similar to this one yet.

Perfect Pass Prebiotic PHGG Partially Hydrolyzed Guar Gum 210g Powder

PHGG fibers is a very well studied fiber, it has been shown to increase the effectiveness of different treatments to eradicate bacteria overgrowth in the intestine. Even if you dont have bacteria overgroth this fiber is very effective in increasing the amount of good bacteria in the small intestine. It will give you gas at the beginning but just stick to it, gas will go away as your bowel movements improve.
