1. Prunes

The classic food that might pop into your head to remedy constipation - prunes! Prunes, dried or fresh, are well-known for their natural laxative effect due to high fiber and sorbitol. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that makes up the majority of the sugar in prunes. And this content is what interestingly sets the fruit apart from other plum varieties. Minced prunes can be added to a salad or if you are feeling bold, made in to prune pudding. 

2. Pumpkin

Pumpkin is rich in fiber and can aid in regular bowel movements, which may reduce bloating caused by constipation. It is also a source of potassium, which can help maintain fluid balance.

3. Beets

Beets are a good source of fiber and can help promote regular bowel movements. Roasted beets add vibrant color to a dinner table. 

4. Chia Seeds

Chia seed pudding might just be a year-round dish. Chia seeds are high in soluble fiber and can be added to your meals or used to make chia pudding for their natural laxative effect.

5. Celery

A food often dismissed, celery is rich in water and insoluble fiber. Celery chopped up is comforting in a minestrone or alongside apple in a spinach salad.
