  • Depends on the root cause. Tea will cause your blood stream to pull more water from your bolus, which could exacerbate the problem. It might be more effective to take a spoonful of oil and a glass of water. If it's an ongoing issue, talk to your doctor instead.

  • There’s no research to support the use of baking soda for treating constipation. Drinking more water will help, and caffeine also has a very mild laxative effect, but if you're drinking coffee on a regular basis, it has more caffeine than tea anyway so you probably wouldn't even notice. I agree with bostjan that you should talk to your doctor, especially with your medical conditions and medications, many of which can cause constipation. But its usually safe to increase your whole grains and leafy greens, both of which can help relieve constipation. Its easy to do this simply by making a smoothie with oats and greens. If you don't like leafy greens, a cup of sweet peas have 7g fiber and 8g protein. 1/4C of oats have 16.9 grams of protein and 10.6 grams of fiber.
