I am adding flax seed to this home made prune juice recipe to make it more efective. Laxatives usually affect the intestinal flora and one of the benefits of the flax seed is actually to protect the intestinal flora, as well as having a laxative effect which will help us to fight constipation in a natural way.
Although you do not suffer from constipation, this colon cleansing juice is very effective in regenerating bone mass. Scientific studies have found that consuming prunes on a regular basis helps to regenerate the bones, so as women we must definitely add plums to our diet.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO PRUNE JUICE TO WORK
Prune juice is very effective to improve the bowel movement. It is a natural laxative and if your colon is not that dirty it can take the effect as soon as 2 hours after drinking it. If your intestine is too saturated and you have several days without going to the bathroom it might take longer and need some extra help.
HOW CAN I IMPROVE BOWEL MOVEMENT
- Have the prune juice with an empty stomach and do not eat anything until 15 to 20 minutes later.
- Have a high fiber natural breakfast.
- Do not eat carbs for a couple of days.
- Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
- Keep moving! exercise helps to improve the bowel movement. Go for a walk or take a ride on the bike.
- Stop stressing out. Your digestion also has to do a lot with how you are feeling.
PLUMS ARE NATURAL LAXANT FRUITS
Prunes have a compound called sorbitol, sorbitol is a natural sugar that has a laxative effect. In addition to that prunes contain a lot of fiber, magnesium, vitamin K.
The fiber of the plums is of slow absorption, so they do not trigger blood sugar levels.
SOME BENEFITS OF CONSUMING PLUMS

- Sorbitol is a natural sugar that works as a laxative.
- Plums are an excellent source of potassium.

Prunes help maintain bone health and, as you well know, one of the great problems of menopause and postmenopause is the loss of bone mass. Prunes are a great source of potassium which is a mineral linked to bone health as well as being vital for the proper functioning of the heart. Prunes also contain magnesium and vitamin K which helps reduce the loss of bone density and breakdown. Source. Studies carried out by the SunSweet
