I think one of the worst things about this painful and somewhat embarrassing condition is the fact that, as vegans, we are expected to be in the bathroom more often than not. Drinking plenty of water is one of those things we all know about, but plenty of us still fall short. Constipation is directly related to dehydration in the colon, so it makes sense to address the root cause and give our bodies plenty of fluid. Taking on board lots of water will help your food pass through your intestine as well as promote the general well-being of your gut too. Vegans may need to take in more water than non-vegans as our fiber intake is usually far greater. Fruit juices and herbal teas can help hydrate the body too, but they can also hold a lot of sugars. Common diuretics such as tea, coffee and alcohol should be avoided when suffering from constipation as these will exacerbate the dehydration, not help it.
