Magnesium is essential for the regulation of intestinal transit. Opt for mineral waters rich in magnesium such as Rozana ou Alvina to promote healthy digestion.

Prebiotic fiber is beneficial for gut health because it feeds the good bacteria in your gut. Include vegetables in your dietfruits like prunes, whole grains (whole wheat, rye bread, oatmeal, whole flour), wild rice, bulgur, quinoa and legumes such as lentils, peas, chickpeas, split peas and beans.

Psyllium is a soluble fiber that can help relieve constipation by increasing the volume of stools and facilitating their passage through the colon. Consult your doctor to determine the appropriate dosage.

Probiotics are microorganisms beneficial for intestinal health. Choose quality probiotics containing validated strains to promote the balance of intestinal flora and maintain regular transit.
