A Morning Smoothie to Help You Stop Constipation


By: Rudy Silva

Chronic constipation can be hard to stop or elimination, since the colon have become weak. In most cases it will have to be retrained on how to have a bowel movement.

For those of you that have mild constipation, here is a morning smoothie that will help activate your colon. This smoothie is packed with nutrients that your body will use to regenerate your colon and body.

I have been making this smoothie for a few years. I make enough to drink right away and to put into my thermos to drink around 10am.

When I make this drink I just start putting things in the blender without measuring. You can do the same and make adjustments as you go.

• one peeled banana

• 4-5 strawberries or other type of berries, or fruits

• one tablespoon of lecithin granules

• one - two teaspoons of flax seed oil

• half and half almond milk and apple juice

• in a coffee grinder, grind up around a teaspoon or less of the following: • brown sesame seeds - are high in lecithin, vitamin C, E, and Calcium. They improve liver function and help in constipation

• sunflower seeds - are high protein, Calcium, and iron. They are one of the best natural foods which feeds the entire body

• flax seeds - are high in fiber and provide bulk for your stools

• almonds - use around 6-7 or more. They are high in Calcium, Phosphorus and have some B-vitamins. Only eat a few. They are high in calories

After grinding the seeds, place them in the blender and blender everything for about 3-4 minutes. If you need a little sweetness, you can add a small amount of honey. I find this drink plenty sweet without any honey.

Sometimes I will add the powder of a few acidophilus capsules.

If I don't add the almonds, I just put all the tiny seed into the blender without grinding them up. The blender will break them up.

This is a powerful smoothie to give you morning power and to activate your colon to get moving.
