Best juice to make you poop!

Common Causes of Constipation

We’ve all been there…backed up and feeling really uncomfortable. But what are the common causes of constipation? Let’s take a look (1):

  • Poor Diet – eating a diet that lacks fiber, and yes, there’s a lot of soluble fiber in juice, can result in difficulty pooping (2).
  • Dehydration – According to the National Institutes of Health, 75% of adult Americans are chronically dehydrated (3). This can lead to a myriad of health issues, including constipation.
  • Not Exercising – Being sedentary results in abdominal muscles becoming weak, and good muscle tone is crucial for regular bowel movements (4).
Common causes of constipation are poor diet, dehydration, lack of exercise, holding in your poop, and certain medications, just to name a few.
  • Holding It In – When you don’t allow yourself to poop when you feel the urge, you’re using your anal and rectal muscles to keep fecal matter in the colon. This results in too much water being extracted, causing the stool to be hard and dry, which makes it more difficult to pass (5).
  • Certain Medications – There are several families of medications that can cause constipation, like opioids, iron supplements, NSAIDs, and certain types of antidepressants, just to name a few (6).

Why Does This Juice Help Constipation?

Juice, in general, can help counter constipation simply through hydration, but specific ingredients will bring with them additional benefits. In this recipe, I use dragon fruit (pitaya), pears, apples, and limes to boost the pro-pooping power!

Pitaya is one of nature’s best laxative fruits, with its trifecta of poop-positive elements: fiber, magnesium, and oligosaccharides (7). Even when juiced, dragon fruit will yield both soluble and (some) insoluble fiber, both key to smooth bowel movements.

Magnesium draws water into the intestinal tract, aiding in constipation relief (8). Studies also suggest that oligosaccharides have a laxative effect on the body (9), so combining these three alone should do wonders for your regularity.

How does this juice help constipation? Thanks to the bowel-moving ingredients in apples, pears, pitaya, and limes!

Pears and apples contain a significant amount of sorbitol, which, like magnesium, is an osmotic laxative drawing water into the intestines, softening stool and allowing it to pass through (10, 11, 12). Both fruits, as well as limes, provide soluble and some insoluble fiber when juiced, which helps with constipation.

Get things moving gently and naturally with the power of apples, pears, and pitaya! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 Apples
  • 3 Pears
  • 1 Pitaya / Dragon Fruit
  • 1 Lime

Instructions

  1. Wash and destem the apples and pears.
  2. Split and scoop the flesh from the pitaya.

Notes

There are three main types of dragon fruit readily available in stores: white-fleshed with pink skin (the one I use here), white-fleshed with yellow skin, and red-fleshed with pink skin. Any will work in this recipe, so try them all and see which you like the best. 

Also, I typically don’t core or peel most fruits. The exception being those with hard or large seeds (mangos, peaches, plums, etc) or those with bitter skins (citrus and pomegranates).

With citrus, if there’s only one or two pieces, I’ll leave the peel intact to get the additional benefits from the oils in the skin. But too much will leave the finished juice too bitter to enjoy. Experiment and see how much, if any, citrus peel you prefer to leave on your fruit.
