Keep things moving with fiber.

Keep things moving with fiber. As we age, nerve cells that control muscles that move food through the digestive tract gradually die off, especially in the large intestine. It's one reason why constipation may occur more frequently as you get older. Fiber helps keep things moving. Aim for at least 25 grams per day, from whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans.
