Constipation is one of the most common digestive problems there is. There are actually a lot of factors to cause this condition, but most often than not, the culprit is the food that we eat. But fret not, because there are fresh fruits that we can get a load of to keep constipation at bay.
One good way to keep the balance in your gastrointestinal tract is by consuming yogurt which has good bacteria. If you're not a fan of plain yogurt, then this smoothie pops recipe might do you good.
