Flax Seed Flushes Constipation Down the Drain
by Bruce Maul
distressing ailment. In fact, what triggers constipation is not limited to deficient fluid
intake, or the lack of fiber nutrients for that matter. Aside from poor dietary habits,
chronic constipation is caused by underlying systemic woes such as metabolic
disorders, allergic reaction to certain food, hormonal imbalance, liver dysfunction, and
excessive absorption of calcium among others. Bowel disorders may also be induced
by the intake of prescription drugs like antibiotics and medicines that work to lower
blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

So what do most people do in these instances? Probably run to the nearest
drugstore to buy over the counter laxatives. That might just provide you temporary
relief from your misery and most likely expose your digestive tract to the side effects
of diarrhea and extreme flatulence. Moreover, this could be habit-forming in the long
run to risk killing good bacteria thriving in the intestine and cause even more digestive
troubles.

There is a healthier alternative to the treatment of chronic constipation that can be
derived from the organic compounds of flax seed. At the onset, ground flax seed is a
natural laxative containing at least 4 grams of dietary fiber for every 25-gram
serving. Of course, it is common knowledge how fiber soothes and coats the
intestinal tract to promote bowel movement as well as loosen hard to pass stool
lingering with the colon. Furthermore, flax is a good source of essential fatty acids or
EFAs particularly Omega 3, which will not only cleanse the digestive system and
restore proper bowel functioning, but also regulate other vital systems of the body in
order to treat related systemic disorders.

Ignoring this condition or simply getting by with the discomforts of constipation could
likely infect the colon with the harmful toxins present in fecal matter sticking to the
large intestines and risk the development of colon cancer. They say that an ounce of
prevention is better than a pound of cure. So whether you are suffering from
constipation or not, better feed your body with at least 25 grams of fiber each day.
And what better way to nourish your body with dietary fiber than a tasty serving of
ground flax seed [http://www.goldflaxseed.com/site/1411640/product/sprkl12oz]
sprinkled over meals and beverages? It is packed with soluble fiber and EFAs that will
keep those digestive engines running while enhancing your overall systemic health as
well.

Do you often get constipated? If you
have been used to spending days or
even weeks enduring infrequent
bowel movements, hard to pass
stool, and the uncomfortably full
feeling down the rectum, looks like
you are inflicted with a serious
digestive condition. In severe cases
of constipation, feeding the body with
platefuls of fruits and green leafy
vegetables to induce the sweeping
action of fiber nutrients down the
intestines, or perhaps intoxicating the
colon with unimaginable volumes of
water to soften the stool simply will
not be enough to relieve you of this
