Fibre for Constipation

As one of the most common conditions, constipation affects people of all ages and is caused by many factors. When constipation strikes, it can result in stomach pain, irregular bowel movements, bloating, and the production of hard or dry stools. The most common causes include a poorly maintained diet (lack of fibre), not drinking enough water, lack of exercise or physical activity, and high levels of stress.

Unfortunately, many people struggle to reach their recommended daily intake of 25-30g of fibre per day. That’s where Kfibre™ can help. Kfibre™ is one of the easiest fibres to include in your diet, and it is high in insoluble fermentable fibre, and contains phytonutrients.. Kfibre™ also supports and balances your probiotics.

Fibre is essential for maintaining digestive regularity and preventing constipation. It adds bulk to your stools, making them softer and easier to pass. Fibre also helps to stimulate the natural contractions of your intestinal muscles, which push waste through your digestive system.

Fibre Supplements for Constipation

If you’re not getting enough fibre from your diet, fibre supplements can help. Fibre supplements come in many different forms, including powders, capsules, tablets, and gummies. When choosing a fibre supplement, it’s important to look for one that is high in both soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre dissolves in water and forms a gel-like substance in your digestive system, while insoluble fibre adds bulk to your stools.

Constipation Support

If you’re struggling with constipation, there are several things you can do to help support your digestive health:

  1. Eat a diet that is high in fibre. Aim for at least 25-30g of fibre per day.
  2. Drink plenty of water. Water helps to soften your stools and prevent constipation.
  3. Exercise regularly. Regular physical activity can help to stimulate your digestive system and prevent constipation.
  4. Manage your stress levels. Stress can disrupt your digestive system and lead to constipation.
