Constipation and digestive health problems are major health issues that see many people trooping to the doctor. They are often a result of bad lifestyles and eating habits. Here are three ways to help you avoid the doctor and keep your tummy in tip-top shape:

1. Take a daily probiotic – research shows probiotic supplements can double the frequency of bowel movement and reduce abdominal pain. A mixture of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria strains seems to be the most effective.

2. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day – drinking plenty of fluids helps everything to keep moving through your gut.

3. For a dietary fibre top-up, try a supplement made from natural wheat such as Metamucil and Benefiber, available from pharmacies and health food stores.
