tcm food for constipationIn this post, I will share a very simple-to-prepare dessert that everyone can try at home to relief constipation.

That is – Papaya Aloe Vera dessert.

Both aloe vera and papaya have the effects of increasing bowel movement. In fact, aloe Vera is classified as 泻下药 in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).

Both papaya and aloe vera can also help to improve liver functions. Papaya helps in liver detox while aloe helps in decreasing heatiness in liver.

This dessert is suitable for people who has constipation or heatiness in liver (symptoms such as redness in the eye or feeling giddiness).

If your stomach can’t take cold stuff (always have diarrhea after taking cold stuff) , then you can add some longan (龙眼) in this dessert.

I have been using Del Monte Aloe Vera and I find that their aloe vera has good effects. You can purchase this brand of aloe vera in the local supermarkets (I bought mine in AMK NTUC).
