How Sesame and Sunflower Seeds Can Help You Get Rid of Constipation

Sesame seeds for constipation 

Using sesame and sunflower seeds for constipation makes a lot of sense. If you like eating fruit, this is a way to add more fiber, vitamins and minerals to your diet and at the same time reduce constipation. Maoshing Ni, Ph.D., CA and Cathy McNease, B.S., M.H. in their book, The TAO of Nutrition, 1987, recommended the use of black sesame seeds for chronic constipation. This is what he says, 

“Roast black sesame seeds into the food with a small amount of coffee. Mix the dark honey into small balls.

Eat one three times a day mixed with rice wine." 

Black sesame seeds also nourish the liver, intestines, kidneys and blood. You can also make sesame seed soup with brown rice.

Pour 10 parts sesame seeds and 1 part brown rice into the hot water 

When they are soft, about an hour, pour the water, grind them with a small food processor to create liquid. Sieve the remaining liquid to remove the excess.

Rinse the liquid with warm water and add a little honey. Cook on low heat until the liquid becomes syrupy.

Drink about two cups to relieve constipation in about an hour. And also, peas and brown sesame seeds - help lubricate the intestinal wall. This makes it easier to pass feces through your intestines. Sunflower seeds for constipation
