As we discussed earlier, these foods are those which contain high amounts of fibers, we can't forget to mention beans or legumes. Along with fiber, legumes also contain protein which is important for normal bowel movements. And when you include beans or legumes to your diet (constipation or otherwise), you ensure that your bones become strong, have healthy blood flow, and the immune system is strong and healthy. So what foods come under beans or legumes? Eat soybeans, adzuki beans, pinto beans, green beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, navy beans, and canella beans.
Too much iron in the diet can also lead to green bowel movement. This side effect related to the color of the stool is often observed in patients put on iron supplements.
Psyllium husk is rich in fiber, and helps absorb water, thereby facilitating the evacuation of bowels. One can consume fresh Psyllium husk or take the powdered form. It is important to drink sufficient quantity of water after consuming Psyllium husk. It is advisable to consult one's healthcare provider before its use.
Mineral oil is among the best stool softeners available to us, as it lubricates stool and aids in its smooth passage, via the intestines. Since it increases lubrication, the stool can easily pass through the rectum and anus, without inflaming or irritating them. Just take one teaspoon of mineral oil before going to bed. Thus, mineral oil for constipation is an effective home remedy, however, it is not recommended for long-term use, as it conduces to various vitamin deficiencies.
