Is cranberry juice good for constipation?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
A little: Cranberry juice has sugar, which can help a little the way any juice can. Plus staying well hydrated is important. In regards to it's laxative power, not really. Cranberries themselves offer fiber the same way other berries do, and that is substantiative. However, juices have little fiber and aid little as a laxative.

Juice has very low: risk. Hydration and fiber certainly are somewhat helpful. Non-absorbable sugars (miralax) are also low risk and often helpful.
