    I haven't been on the board in awhile but I wanted to share something with any of you who have chronic constipation. Which I have been battling most of my adult life.

    I was taking alot of magnesium for several years, but I started thinking this can't be good for me to do this for the rest of my life. I went to Whole Foods and bought ground flax seed. I put a tablespoon in the morning in some applesauce (you can put it in whatever you want; applesauce was just easy for me) and make sure you drink water throughout the day.

    At night I put a tablespoon in a smoothie or something else that I am eating. I am telling you that I have not had constipation problems since. If you have this type of problem this is a healthy easy fix.

    Try it and see if it works for you. Good luck and God Bless!!

    Thanks for the tip. Since I take meds all the time for Fibro and the meds are constipating, I'll try anything.
    Seems like when you can't go everything in your body feels worse!!!
    Thanks again,

    Flax seeds are actually one of the best plant-based sources of Omega 3 fatty acids. They're good for fiber, protein, fatty acids, etc. I believe they've also been shown to lower cholesterol.

    Hemp seed works as well for me and I like the taste of it.
