List of Foods to Prevent and Relief Constipation

Certain foods are high in fiber, have laxative properties and so can help alleviate the symptoms of constipation. One of the reasons that prunes, aples, peaches, figs, and etc. don't work for some people may be that they don't drink enough liquid. Fruits and vegetables contain the fiber. The fiber has to swell to turn into bulk, and the one thing it needs to do this is water.
