- The lower end of the intestinal track (i.e., colon) is responsible for ridding the body of solid waste. Many people have trouble with this part of digestion and develop constipation. Others may develop irritable bowel syndrome, which presents as both constipation and diarrhea intermittently. Most of the time these intestinal issues don’t last long, and simple changes to the diet can help the digestive system run smoothly again.
In order for food to pass through the colon and avoid constipation, it is best to consume a diet rich in fiber and water. When you eat foods that have a lot of fiber, the extra bulk helps keep stools soft and speeds digestion. Stay hydrated. If you add more fiber to your diet, be sure to drink more fluids, too (http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/eat-healthy-exercise#1 ).
The Nutrient Shake has 6 grams of dietary fiber or 24% of what you each day and is made with water or other liquids, so it is perfect to support the lower intestine to help prevent constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.
