Prunes for Constipation

Prunus domestica

Prunes are the poster child of constipation remedies. If you're under 45 and reach for them at the buffet you might even feel self conscious. Deal with it.



  • Eat prunes. Plums will work as well.

Why prunes works

Prunes, in addition to being a good source of dietary fiber, also contain a natural laxative called dihydrophenylisatin. Prune juice contains the laxative as well but not so much fiber.


Prunes are good for you but if you experience too much relief cut back your intake.
