    Default Figs Relieve Constipation In Clinical Trial

    Dr Michael Murrray
    July 7 2017

    How crazy is it that Americans spend over $2 billion a year on laxatives to deal with constipation? Here is something else to ponder, studies designed to determine the percentage of adults suffering from chronic constipation put the number between 24% to almost 50%.
    Rather than relying on laxatives and stool softeners, people need to wake up and look first to foods to improve digestive health. An elaborate new study has added figs to a long list of effective foods to aid intestinal health and relieve constipation.

    What's old is new again. Lol. When I was a young kid, we loved eating fig bars, or fig cookies.....I believe they were called, "Fig Newtons." They weren't the healthiest snack, but they kept us in the bathroom. My parents loved them because we kids knew when to stop eating. More than 3 at a time, as I recall, would send you to the bathroom frequently. I wonder if "fig newtons" are still around.

    My thoughts too Mr Wiz, Syrup of Figs laxative was quite common when I was a child in England. I'm surprised they felt a study was even needed. But it seems we are not allowed to draw conclusions from observations and common sense - it has to be a scientific study. Otherwise it's just 'anecdotal'.

    Too right, Julie. I have no problems in this respect. You eat 3 meals a day, you eliminate 3 times a day. Gotta have fiber in your diet, though!
