The cause of constipation is not exactly known.
Generally, constipation is often caused by large intestine or rectum’s function disorder of the body. Currently, constipation can also be caused by eating habits, which can lead to slow intestinal activity. Eating dairy products and processed foods, drinking lack of water, meat-eating habits, excessive flour intake, and lack of exercise may cause hard and dry stools. 

People do not think it is a disease until their constipation gets worse, but constipation is a serious disease, so proper solution is needed before it gets worse.

Constipation may cause any inconvenience for everyday life, I will tell you good foods for constipation.


Radish contains a lot of dietary fiber that stimulates intestinal motility.

It also contains a component called goitrogen, which can cause hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. If your thyroid gland is weak, it is recommended to eat cooked radish.


Kelp is a representative food that increases the amount of bowel.
