Dietary changes can affect our digestive health – even though sometimes these changes are beyond our control, like when we travel or experience physiological changes, such as bed rest or even pregnancy. Physicians may suggest laxatives to get things moving again, but always be sure to drink enough fluids and make extra efforts to eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Often, simple and natural solutions such as prunes, prune juice, or plum juice can provide much-needed relief and work to prevent constipation.
Sunsweet’s PlumSmart® is a delicious 100% juice made from plums. It may help regulate digestion naturally and contains 3 grams of fiber per serving, plus important nutrients such as potassium and B vitamins.
A recent study conducted by doctors at Johns Hopkins University found that 72 percent of women reported relief from irregularity after consuming one cup of PlumSmart (within the first 24 hours).
