When the “Going” Gets Tough (on Little Tummies)

News flash: grown-ups aren’t the only ones who get occasional constipation, and  most of the time the causes are the same for kids as they are for adults—not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough water, changes in daily routine or simply not setting aside enough time to go to the bathroom.

Teaching kids early about the importance of healthy bowel habits is the first step toward helping to prevent occasional constipation, and it includes making sure they eat plenty of fiber. Fiber adds bulk to the stool and helps to strengthen the colon muscles to ensure healthy bowel movements.* It also helps absorb and eliminate harmful toxins in the gut.*

In addition to eating more fiber, a diet rich in beneficial Omega-3 helps keep the colon lubricated to ease elimination and avoid straining.* A daily probiotic is also recommended to help maintain a healthy, balanced gut and promote regular bowel movements. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is also essential for keeping stools hydrated and easier to pass. Finally, make sure kids know the importance of good bowel health, and encourage them to take their time on the toilet and avoid straining or pushing.

When occasional constipation does happen, our Gentle Move Kids Colon Support™ is a yummy strawberry-flavored chewable made with magnesium, prune, fig, rhubarb and other ingredients to promote healthy elimination and help restore regularity.*

    My little guy used to have the biggest stools! My heart ached for him every time he emptied his bowels. It wasn’t until I noticed the “chicken flesh” on the back of his arms and began supplementing with omega-3 FA that his bowel habits became easier.
    Next time!
