Do you suffer from constipation? Normally this problem can be solved by consuming lots of fluids (water) and dietary fibre. The problem is that a lot of fibre is taken out of our foods especially when you eat junk food. So we just don’t get enough fibre into our bodies.

The answer to this problem is Linseed or Flaxseed. Buy it in its ground form from any health shop and grind it in your coffee grinder. The oil is inside the seeds. Once done you need to store it in your fridge otherwise it could oxidise. Mix it with your porridge in the morning and drink a glass or two of lukewarm water. Then make sure you drink about eight glasses of water throughout the day. You will never be constipated again. Start off with a teaspoon full of seeds and build it up to a tablespoon or two every morning. It will keep you nice and regular.
