Does Apple Juice Help Constipation?

Answer

Apple juice is a natural laxative in the body and it is considered a treatment since eating fibrous fruits and vegetables or their juices helps in bowel movement. Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is abundant in many fruit juices like prune, peach, pear and apple juice. It is a type of sugar alcohol which loosens the stool and promotes regular bowel movement. Always consult your doctor about the appropriateness of new foods or liquids to help alleviate constipation.
