Be careful with this. Some do, and some use things like smooth move tea and such – but these things can dehydrate you as far as I know and cause more fluctuations later and mess up your own body’s natural peristalsis. You might try more natural methods first like:
- higher doses of magnesium
- pysllium husk (be careful with this one! When just starting it you want to start SMALL and make sure to drink proper amount of water with it otherwise you will have opposite problem and be even more constipated – but with enough water and gradual increase, the fiber really helps keep things moving in your colon) and
- lemon water.
These tools really can be very effective, and you don’t usually need to do them all. Higher dosages of probiotics by themselves, or higher doses of the magnesium, by itself, has been able to completely get rid of my constipation. Don’t go hog wild your first day, but for instance me, I would take maybe a double dose of what is recommended on label), I have found this to REALLY fix constipation issues, and it seems to do it in a more natural way that doesn’t cause other additional issues later.
