Have you ever traveled and noticed, but haven't been defecating for a few days? Is the fun trip too forgetting you? "mission" or not?
According to the results of a survey, 4 out of 10 people face constipation symptoms. The number is not random, there are dozens of possible causes for this situation.
The reason is that when traveling, you not only book tickets for yourself, but also carry 100 trillion bacteria inside your intestines. Many of the factors that change during your vacation can affect these microorganisms, and thereby cause your intestinal tract to harden.
Let's find out what those factors are:
For every 10 people who travel, up to 4 suffer from constipation, why is it coincidental?
"Whenever you leave your usual habitat, it will make your intestinal microflora unbalanced"Brooke Alpert, a New York dietitian, said," Sometimes, this can start before you even get to the new location. "
For some people, the act of moving from point A to point B can cause constipation. If you want to stimulate peristalsis so that it works smoothly, you have to be active. Sitting in a seat on a plane or in a car for a long time may cause a bowel obstruction.
Many people who defecate in the car can also make it harder for them to put their butt on the toilet at the destination.
Moreover, the time zone difference between the destination and the place you leave may also pose a problem. Many people have a habit of defecating normally and regularly throughout the day. But when they met jetlag because of the new time zone, that habit was also disordered, leading to constipation.
If your trip is a little stressful, this is another reason that makes you uncomfortable in your hygiene activities. With millions of connected neurons, the gut is given by the researchers a nickname as the second brain.
The neurons in the intestine play a role in digestion, but more or less they are influential and affected by our emotions. Researchers know that mental states such as anxiety can affect activity in the gastrointestinal tract.
Now you can also explain why grandparents have words like "ache"Good "hurt".
Professor Elizabeth Bik, a microbiology researcher from Stanford University, said: "The intestinal tract is affected when you are stressed".
Many scenarios that can occur during holidays can cause these stresses, such as late flights, you get lost, or even have to stay with your family for a long time. All can increase your risk of constipation.
Don't let your vacation be less fun because you have to watch the toilet
So, how to prevent constipation during your vacation? Alpert said that because each person's microbiota is different, there is no perfect tip that can be applied to everyone.
But she said there are some useful tips. First, people should drink plenty of water. Compensating enough water for the body will help the digestive system work more smoothly. To supplement the intestinal microflora, you can eat fermented foods such as yogurt or sauerkraut.
Foods high in fiber such as fruits and vegetables also make you more comfortable. Unfortunately, it's not easy to find them at airports and holiday stops. Instead, there are fast and dry foods like candies, which may also be a reason for your intestinal stagnation.
Most people eat less healthy in the days they travel, Bik said. They tend to choose greasy foods, and that aggravates constipation if they get it. To be able to solve the problem, you should choose a more balanced menu with lots of fiber.
Put the sweet cake down and exchange it for salads, the fiber going through the intestines will stimulate the mucus in your digestive tract and reduce indigestion symptoms, Bik said. Hold on a bit, rather than letting myself be buried in the toilet right in the middle of the holiday.
