As mentioned above, the dietary management of constipation suggests a daily intake of 25 grams of fiber, which we can take from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

For instance, prunes and their juice, seems to have a special ability to stimulate bowel movement and also the bran especially from wheat(wheat bran) increases the stool volume by absorbing water and helps in defecation. It is very important that along with the intake of fibers you should increase the fluid intake during the day. Equally important is that you eat breakfast.
