Will peanuts make you constipated?

Sure, pls consider: Milk, eggs, wheat, soybeans, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts & peanuts cause 90 % of food allergic reactions, & up to 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies. Short of a true allergic reaction, too much of a good food is not necessarily a good thing. If you ate peanuts to excess, sure you could get constipated. ...Read more

One of the colon's primary jobs is to reabsorb water from the stool before it is excreted. If you are not drinking enough water the stool can become dry and hard, leading to constipation. Fruits and vegetables are a good source of dietary fiber. ...Read more

Fried foods: Can cause many people problems. The fried peanuts may not be sitting well. Pomegranate juice is rich in antioxidants and can be very beneficial. Drink plenty of water. You may find that papaya enzyme may help as well. Or it may be an accumulation of things you have eaten or the beginning of a stomach bug. ...Read more

Can eating crunchy peanut butter in a pb&j sandwich make you constipated?

Perhaps, if dry...: There are many reasons for relative constipation. Have your md review your current medications for constipation as side effect. Fiber (with enough water) very helpful, and you need to titrate up to full doses or you will get gassy. A healthy, fiber filled diet always good, and don't forget to drink more water. Regular exercise also excellent for getting those bowels moving. ...Read more
