The mineral magnesium can draw water to the colon through osmosis. Brown rice, wheat, leafy vegetables, beans, nuts like almonds, and seeds like pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, etc., are packed with magnesium.
They come in various forms of capsules, tablets, and syrups. The dosage will be as per your physician's recommendations. Usually, they are not to be consumed for longer than a week, unless your physician advises you to do so. Also, the tablets and capsules should be consumed as a whole, with a glass of water. You can take it with a glass of milk or fruit juice, to camouflage its bitter taste. In case you missed the dose, you should take it as soon as you remember it. If it's almost the time for the next dose, then you can skip it and take the next one on time.
When we eat, the food breaks down into small pieces and is sent to the small intestine for further absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The waste material which is left out after the process of absorption, is excreted in the form of stool. Normally the color of the stool varies from light to medium brown.
Mineral oil is among the best stool softeners available to us, as it lubricates stool and aids in its smooth passage, via the intestines. Since it increases lubrication, the stool can easily pass through the rectum and anus, without inflaming or irritating them. Just take one teaspoon of mineral oil before going to bed. Thus, mineral oil for constipation is an effective home remedy, however, it is not recommended for long-term use, as it conduces to various vitamin deficiencies.
