My mom used to give my cousin a "papaya" if you are here in the Philippines that is a popular fruit but sad to say I don't know what is the other name for papaya... Accordingly, that is effective but I haven't try yet.. But I am eating papaya... And I sometimes poo.. Prone juice is also effective because I have tried it once.. But it only effects me two drinks then the next don't...

i agree! papaya gives one helluva blow when you're having problems with poop.. not only does it help clean your system, but generally helps you take it out. and yeah.. "papaya" doesn't have another name. c",)

Prunes and figs are usually pretty good. Apart from fruit, 'sugar-free' gum/sweets can have that effect because of the artificial sweeteners (sorbitol??).

Not sure what part of the world you're in but papaya is a good laxative and isn't acidic like pineapples. Or you could try eating lots of green veggies because they're high in fiber, too. Otherwise, take a tablespoon or two of virgin coconut oil because it does the job.

i have no problems regarding that. i poo twice a day and sometimes more. but i have experienced one day that i have not pooed at all so i am so worried and uneasy. my mother taught me to eat steamed kangkong and dipped in bagoong. and it is very effective. try eating a bunch and the next day it will clean you large intestine. you will feel very light from your tummy.

Fruits that makes you poo are apple, orange, papaya, prune, pear. Among the fruits, I usually eat 1/2 of an apple before meal time, then after eating my meal, I can have that feeling right away. For me apple ranks no. 1, followed by prunes, papaya, orange and pear. These fruits really helps a lot and are rich in fiber.

mangoes are very good and serve the purpose well. Papayas are also good .There is also one variety of banana that is a wonderful laxative. But there are other varieties which have just the opposite effect...

I have to say pineapple but since you don't like the taste I have to say apple and papaya is rich in fiber too. You can try pineapple juice if you like. Since you are from the Philippines I think you might be familiar with the vegetable called "malunggay" I heard it is very rich in fiber, calcium and lots more nutrients.

bananas, the yellow ones especially helps with this problem...my daughter used to have problems with defecating, she also had constipation at times, but since starting to give her bananas everyday, she has regular bowel movements daily, you can try them....there are very cheap too
