This is the best and fastest remedy I have ever tried for constipation. After being constipated for days, a friend of mine who is a nurse told me that the first thing they do in the hospital for those that are suffering from constipation is put 6-8oz of prune juice in a coffee mug and heat it for 45 seconds. Then put 1 tbsp of real butter in the juice and heat for another 25 seconds. Allow it to cool for 30 seconds then give it a good stir and have the sufferer drink all of it, within 5-10 minutes.

I'm not lying when I say it worked in about an hour. It's quite a love/hate relationship, plus it's pretty inexpensive... Can't beat that!

DOES ANYONE KNNOW HOW TO MAKE PRUNE JUICE TASTE GOOD???? I have been suffering from constipation my whole life, but it hasnt been from stress or medicine. What happens is i cant get to the bathroom once so i have to hold it in. After that first time i get scared that it will hurt so it just keeps building. I think the biggest my poop was around was larger than a fifty cent piece. And those are big!!!!!


Thanks for the advice. My 11 year old daughter has been diagnosed as 'gluten intolerant,' with the sympton being severe constipation. Being constipated makes her grouchy and makes her wet the bed at night. We've been doing the prune juice/butter every couple of days, and it has helped. I'd recommend to everyone to eliminate processed foods and try to eat as many fresh vegetables and fruits as possible. Don't just fix the problem, try to prevent it!


omg! that is the worst ever!!! but am willing to try any and everything!!! I can truly stomach started talking to me..and before i knew it it was like magic! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!


I have been trying prune choice with butter after a suggestion from a nurse - for the last few days I have been able to move naturally so I do not have to use a laxative. I hope I continue to have success.


Why not just regular prune juice? It's worked for me?


I love it, but wondering if I'll get better results with mineral or castor oil.


As an NP may I suggest 4oz orange juice and 4oz prune juice. It almost makes a coffee flavor. I didn’t use butter as some patients have cardiac issues. Warmed in the microwave.
