If you are concerned with obstipation, the best would be to consume, as much as possible magical natural remedy – raw groceries. That means more whole-wheat bread and whole-grain cereals in particular because they are the best laxatives. Nothing can be compared with their ability to improve intestinal emptying. Small amounts of grains daily can regulate the stool for approximately 60% for those that are constipated, which makes it undeniably clear that there is constipation due to insufficient intake of food high in fiber. Our ancestors ate about 500g of whole grain bread per day. We are eating only a fifth of that amount, barely 100g mainly made by highly refined white flour, without fiber.
Natural laxatives like cereals, which are expanding the mass of the stool rather than just stimulating the intestine’s nerves, as what many medicines do, are mild and safe.
“CEREALS ARE THE SAFEST, CHEAPEST AND THE MOST NATURAL METHOD OF TREATING AND PREVENTING CONSTIPATION”.
If the intake of fiber could be 40g per day, instead of 20g, many cases of constipation will cease.
At the start you can try with wheat flakes cereal, firstly 1/3cup to ½ cup, and then add more if needed, as the experts advise. Also, always consume whole grain bread. Look for the words whole or whole grain on the labels of the packed bread, or you can make the bread by yourself.
Another quick and easy possibility is to add raw, unprocessed wheat cereal in your favorite mash or other meals. That cereal is also called miller’s cereal (because it is left-over from the wheat milling), and usually can be found on the shelf for cereals and in the healthy food shops. In the research, this is the best cure for obstipation. Classic British studies show that daily intake of 50g cereal doubles the amount of stool. The power of the cereal is hidden in their raw, coarse particles. In the packed cereal products are usually found processed flakes, which have reduced the laxative effect, therefore you should eat a little bit more to take effect.
