Hi, Constipation is always a challenge. Im vegan yet still suffer chronic constipation . If you can tolerate milk of magnesia it acts pretty quickly. Also, magnesiium supplements might help but make sure with doctor that its okay. Ground flax or chia seeds are a good way to get fiber and omega oils.
My biggest fault is slowing down on water intake. If you make part of you fluids probiotic , even better. I was making kombucha which really helps constipation. Now I just dilute with lots of water so I can avoid extra sugar. If you eat kim chee, pickles , sauerkraut or other femented veggies you can get that probiotic. Yogurt, plant-based in my case, is another go to that helps when my digestive tract bogs down.
Hope you find a solution or so, best to you! i

Hi, does anyone have any advice? I often get constipated and have very slow bowel movements, I try to drink as much water as I can during the day, and my diet has enough fiber in it, to my mind, so I can't really see why this is happening. I started having problems with bowel movements a couple of years ago, it has been on and off really, I tried laxatives for a while then stopped, I am now on gabapentin and got bloating issues on top of everything. ANy advice? thank you!
