    Nutrition Note:

     

    Prune juice by itself is good for constipation. It is a safe, gentle and an effective laxative. Prune juice contains the substance dihydrophenylisatin, which is responsible for the laxative action. Prunes are also high in iron and are a great supplement for those who are anemic or low on iron.
