Quick tips - Constipation

1. Apple and Guava are essentially good for constipation. It is rightly said 'An apple a day keeps a doctor away'..Apple helps in proper functioning of the liver and washing off toxins from our body. Make sure to eat atleast one apple or guava (whichever fruit is readily avaiable) everyday for healthy digestive system. If you choose to eat guava, do NOT chew the guava seeds, swallow them as chewing the seeds causes ulcer and acidity.

2. Take 1 tsp of Triphala choorna with warm water before going to bed every night.
