What is Constipation?
Constipation is the difficulty of emptying the bowels, usually associated with hardened feces. It is slower-than-normal movement of stool through the digestive tract. Producing fewer-than-normal bowel movements is also a sign of constipation. Constipation effects up to 20% of adult Americans. It occurs so frequently that it accounts for 2.5 million doctor visits every year, and people spend over $800 million on over-the-counter laxatives every year. But there are so many better, cheaper ways to help your bowels go smoother.
