Today with higher stress levels and an increasingly irregular lifestyle, constipation is a common complaint and a lifestyle disorder. Drinking less water, eating too much junk food, stress, fewer hours of sleep, and inappropriate hours of work can lead to constipation. Our dependence on junk food has resulted in eating less of green leafy vegetables, fibrous food, and fresh fruits.
A few yoga asanas every day can help take care of the infrequent bowel movements and also reduce bloating and straining of the stomach. Most postures in yoga involve the movement of the pelvis, and this greatly helps in reducing constipation.
Yoga helps by managing your stress, which can greatly improve the functioning of your digestion system. Also, these poses massage your digestive organs, increase blood flow and oxygen delivery, and encourage stools to move through your system.
