Dietary fibers and fermented foods are famous to improve constipation.
But what is introduced today is Kiwifruits.
Kiwifruits were paid attention to from the medical profession in an international symposium in New Zealand 2 years ago.
The dietary fibers in kiwifruits contain a lot of water. Water-retaining amount of kiwifruits is twice as much as apples or oranges. When kiwifruits come to the large intestine, hard stools are moisturized and softened by the retained water. The softened stools move quickly in the large intestine and are smoothly eliminated.
A woman suffering from constipation for 30 years tried to eat at least one kiwifruit a day in one of three meals for 1 weak. The 2nd day she had 4 bowel movements, and the stool was soft and formed instead of small pieces. After that, she had a bowel movement every day. In addition to the improvement of constipation, she lost weight.
