How this Laxative Works?
Here’s what you need to know – prunes are loaded with fiber and they have high amounts of sorbitol, which is a natural sugar that loosens the stool. This eases constipation in a short period of time.
Or, you can try this method instead – just add dried prunes to water and leave it overnight to then drink in the morning. This will help you to produce a bowel movement in the morning by loosening stools. The experts say that soluble fiber allows more water to remain in your stool, making waste softer, larger, and thus, easier to pass through your intestines. And, don’t forget to make some lifestyle changes – eat healthy food (fruits and vegetables), drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol, sleep more, etc.
