Let’s talk about probiotics for constipation. Typically, people take probiotics for diarrhea, not constipation. Taking the wrong probiotics can actually make you more constipated.

Constipation is a situation where you have stagnant waste in your gut. It’s defined as having a bowel movement less than three times per week. But, in my opinion, you should have a bowel movement at least once a day.

Symptoms of constipation:
• Hard stool
• Pain when trying to have a bowel movement
• The bowel movement feels incomplete

There are two specific strains of probiotics that may be beneficial for someone with constipation. These strains are lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. Other strains of probiotics may create more constipation.

Lactobacillus and bifidobacteria are also good to take if you have diarrhea. If you ever need to take an antibiotic, you may want to take a probiotic within two days of taking the antibiotic to help prevent diarrhea. You’re essentially killing all of your bacteria and replacing them with good bacteria.

Other tips for constipation:
1. Drink plenty of fluids
2. Get plenty of potassium and magnesium (consume leafy green vegetables or a good electrolyte powder)
3. Take purified bile salts
4. Take vitamin B1

If you’ve tried everything and nothing works, you may want to try an herbal laxative.
