Study on green kiwifruit to treat chronic constipation

‘Consuming two green kiwifruit per day benefits patients with constipation’

The June issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology includes an article on the effectiveness of over-the-counter therapies and green kiwifruit as a dietary therapy for chronic constipation.

In the first US study to assess green kiwifruit as a potential therapy for constipation, authors compared the effectiveness of kiwifruit, prunes, and psyllium in relieving chronic constipation.

The study found that consuming two green kiwifruit per day benefited patients with constipation, similarly to treatment with prunes or psyllium. Additionally, kiwifruit caused fewer adverse side effects such as pain, cramping, and bloating, compared to prunes and psyllium.
