Which fruits are best to prevent or help with constipation?

Prevention and treatment of constipation is individual, and it generally involves a more comprehensive approach to diet rather than focusing on one particular type of food. All fruits do contain fiber and are one component of a healthy dietary approach to preventing and treating constipation. General guidelines for preventing and treating constipation include:

 

  • Eat a variety of both fruits and vegetables and meet recommendations for intake: 3 ½ – 4 ½ cups per day for moderately active adult females; 4 ½ -5 cups per day for moderately active males.
  • Eat foods whole grains such as 100% whole wheat breads, whole grain cereals (such as Shredded wheat), and unprocessed grains like brown rice, whole barley, etc.

     

  • Drink plenty of fluids.

     

If constipation is a chronic problem for you, it is recommended that you discuss this with your physician.
