It's often overlooked, but drinking water and other liquids makes the fiber you eat more effective in keeping you regular. Fluids help keep food moving in your digestive system. If your body is lacking water, the large intestine will draw in water from food waste, making stools harder to pass. The amount of water you should consume each day depends on a number of factors such as your health, weight, activity level and the weather. For healthy people, drinking at least eight glasses of water a day can help support regularity.
In addition, if getting enough fiber is a challenge for you, you may want to consider taking a fiber supplement. The benefits of fiber supplements include convenience and the ability to increase the amount of fiber you get on a daily basis.
