Laxatives are used for loosening stools, so that they can easily move through the colon and/or increase the frequency of bowel movements. A laxative could be a drug or a natural remedy like prune juice. As far as drugs are concerned, laxatives can be of different types. They include bulk-forming agents, stool softeners, stimulants, lubricants and osmotics. Though they all aim at relieving constipation, their course of action differs.

If your diet is rich in junk food, this is something which you should change. A diet which is rich in junk food often leads to constipation. On the contrary, your diet should be rich in high fiber foods. The diet for treating constipation should be rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Fiber rich fruits should be a part of the diet as well. If you think you are constipated, consuming fruits like papaya, watermelon, banana, etc. can prove to be useful. Green leafy vegetables also prove to be a good remedy for constipation.
