Though some remedies include certain laxatives, fibre supplements, and stool softeners, the best could be some foods that boost regularity.

1. Apple

Apples are rich in fibre, which passes through your intestines undigested and promotes regular bowel movements. Apples also contain another soluble fibre called pectin, which has laxative effects. It reduces the colon transit time, treats constipation, and improves digestive health as well.

2. Hot Beverages

This can include hot coffee or tea or even hot water. Hot liquids are known to stimulate the bowels and ease constipation. They also widen the blood vessels this aids digestion and makes pooping easy.

3. Bananas

Bananas are rich in fibre, and that’s one reason they relieve constipation and help you poop.

Green bananas also contain resistant starch, which works like soluble fibre and eases the intestines.

4. Blueberries

Blueberries are also rich in dietary fibre that can ease symptoms of constipation and make you poop.

5. Epsom Salt

Though Epsom salt looks the same as table salt, its composition is different – it contains magnesium and sulfate. Taking Epsom salt increases the water content in your intestines. This softens your stool and makes you poop.
