Constipation is uncomfortable and can make life uncomfortable. When you’re feeling weighed down and bloated, you want fast relief. You may be able to use natural remedies to relieve your constipation.
Constipation is defined as having fewer than three bowel movements per week. It may be chronic, or happen occasionally. Some symptoms include:
Most laxative herbs contain anthraquinone, or substances that have a stimulant effect on the intestines. These laxatives work by drawing in fluid to the colon and increasing peristalsis. Peristalsis is the contraction of the intestines that helps move material through the colon to the rectum. Adding fiber and fluids is essential when constipated.
Phenibut is a Russian Nootropic that is most commonly used for boosting mood, assisting with anxiousness and helping to promote a healthy mood and/or sleep. Very briefly, the Phenibut molecule can be thought of as a ‘key’ to unlock ‘locks’ in the brain called GABA-receptors. The body’s own ‘key’ is called GABA, and when this unlocks the GABA-receptors, our brains have a lower response to signals from the Central Nervous System. This is what creates the effects of relaxation, social ease, pain relief and drowsiness when our bodies produce GABA. This tends to happen at night or when we are really tired.
Our bodies are constantly regulating signals from the Central Nervous System using GABA molecules. Mostly, we hardly even notice the effects. However, when we take a substance like Phenibut, which is also a ‘key’ to unlock the GABA-receptor ‘locks’ we get the same effects which could be stronger.
