In this video, we’re going to talk about constipation and fiber.

Constipation is not just a symptom of a lack of fiber. Constipation is the result of incomplete digestion anywhere in the digestion tract.

This could be due to a lack of:
• Stomach acid – Which breaks down protein
• Bile – Which breaks down fats
• Enzymes – Which breaks down all nutrients
• Gut microbes – Which breaks down fiber and other nutrients

If you have constipation, it could be that you need more stomach acidity, bile, enzymes, or probiotics.

16% of Americans have constipation, and 30% of adults over 60 have constipation.

It’s important to look at the entire digestive process if you have constipation. The answer usually isn’t as simple as adding more fiber. You have to look at your digestion as a whole.

Constipation causes and solutions:
• Antibiotics – Probiotics
• Antacids – Re-acidify the stomach with ACV or betaine hydrochloride
• Medications – Talk with your doctor about alternatives
• Processed foods – Consume raw foods with more enzymes
• Low fiber – More vegetables
• Low electrolytes – More vegetables
• High carbs – Keto and benfotiamine
• Overeating – Intermittent fasting
• Stress – Lower your stress levels with nutrition and relaxation

In general, these things are great for supporting digestion:
• Fermented foods
• Vegetables
• Increasing fat intake
• Lower your carbs
• Intermittent fasting
