Understanding Irregularity

If you have fewer than one bowel movement a day, it’s considered irregular. If you have fewer than three bowel movements per week, you are suffering from constipation. Irregularity leads to serious bowel diseases without proper attention. Discover informative articles, helpful tips, and customer stories to help relieve your irregularity.

Introduction to Irregularity

An individual’s regularity depends on their diet, age, and level of daily activity.

 

The digestive system extracts nutrients from the food and the rest through the intestinal tract and stores it temporarily in the colon. The fecal matter excretes through the bowels in 1-2 days.

 

A healthy stool should be easy to pass and not too hard or soft. The longer the matter sits in the colon, the further it hardens, and the more difficult it becomes to pass.

 

  • There are a few factors that result in constipation:
  • Lack of fibre
  • Dehydration
  • Moderate physical activity
  • Side-effects of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and diabetes

Eating fibrous foods, drinking lots of water, exercising regularly, and making sure your digestive system is cleansed strengthens your digestive system.

  • If you are not experiencing at least one bowel movement a day there is a good chance that you are not getting enough fiber in your diet.

 

  • The body diverts energy away from the digestive areas during stress.

 

  • Without about 8 - 10 glasses of water a day, your body cannot digest food properly.
