Written by: Lindsay Sibson

Being backed up in traffic OR being “backed up” in your bowels?

Which would you choose?

I’ll take the TRAFFIC any day (even the infamous LA traffic), because being constipated absolutely SUCKS.

If you find yourself needing to help things along, look no further than blending up this delicious constipation-stopping smoothie.

It has good-for-you ingredients that taste great and will help give you a great poop!
