Constipation - The root cause of all the health problems

Constipated people may have hard stools and push too firmly on the toilet seat. Some people may even have sporadic symptoms when they feel clogged up and unable to do their daily bowel movements. Due to the constant straining, chronic constipation may also cause bloating, stomach cramps, and rectal pain.
