5 SIMPLE WAYS TO ENHANCE BOWEL MOVEMENT
How often do you have a bowel movement?
I hope you are aware that the rate of your bowel movement is a pointer to the state of your health. The ideal transit time for food is 16-24 hours; by this time, the nutrient in the food should be absorbed into the blood and waste product eliminated. Therefore, the ideal frequency of bowel movement should be once daily. Anything beyond this could be indicative of constipation.
Constipation, of course, allows harmful bacteria to hang around longer, which allows them to proliferate causing damage to your general health. Constipation is a factor in most Gastro-Intestinal Tract (GIT) related conditions.
Here are 5 simple ways to ensure a daily visit to the restroom:
1 Eat more fruits, vegetables, and herbs. These are rich in fibre which enhances bowel movement. All animal foods do not have fibre; the more you feed on animal protein like pork, the more you would experience constipation.
2. Start the day with a glass of water and the juice of one freshly squeezed lemon. This has a way of fast-tracking the bowel movement. Lemon is also a rich source of Vitamin C.

3. Drink green tea and herbal teas such as dandelion, nettles etc. These teas help the body detoxify and clear out toxins.
4. Minimize or eliminate white flour products like white bread etc. White flour is like adding glue in the body, and it overworks the digestive system. It can cause digestive disorders, and it can make it difficult to have normal bowel movements.
5. Take food rich in probiotics: Eating and drinking fermented foods and drinks will introduce beneficial bacteria into your digestive system and help the balance of bacteria in your digestive system. Foods like Greek yogurt, kefir and as simple as fermented pap water are rich in friendly bacteria. Probiotics are proven to help improve bowel health and aid digestion. The beneficial bacteria kill harmful bacteria and yeasts and help to heal the lining of the intestines.
