Has anyone used a tea to help with Constipation?

I heard some people use them and I was wondering which ones work.

I personally have not used them but have friends who swear by it. For me, I do the following:

2 tbsp Braggs Organic Vinegar with the "mother"
8 oz water
1 packet stevia

Gulp that down after my breakfast and meds and then followed by 16oz of water. Works pretty good, since I have started doing this I have not had any problems.

BTW, I do not take the Colon Cleanse because I am one of those that it does not help but causes constipation and I also take 1 colace in the morning.

Remember to drink the 1 gallon of water too everyday, this will help as well!

I've used an Herbal Laxative tea when I did a cleanse last year that really works well. But beware because they are strong. So try diluting it first. They cause contractions in your stomach to push everything out. (sorry to be so gross)

If you go to the tea section of your grocery store, you should be able to find some. Basically any tea that has senna leaf in it.

Good Luck!

I use "smooth move" organic tea. Fabulous. I have only needed it one time on the program though. I don't have constipation issues! We are eating such small volumes anyways.

I use 2 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, 1/4 cup of water and a stevia packet each morning. Not great tasting but works very nicely. I also follow the lovely drink with a full glass of water to rinse the vinegar from my mouth as it is bad to your teeth!

I have used a tea, called "smooth move" before, I can't remember who makes it but you just have to steep the bag for about 6-7 minutes. Works wonders!

I recommend dieters tea(peppermint flavor- taste just like peppermint tea), smooth move- I really don't care for the taste, and ballerina tea- not bad. I recently started taking magnesium supplements and it seems to help.
