Constipation is a medical condition where the sufferer has painful or infrequent bowel movement.
It can be caused by poor diet, the side effects of medications or hormones but also by problems in the physical body of individuals. Aloe Vera will not be completely effective against this latter cause (where surgery may be required) although it may help.
Note that Constipation is not the same as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
