    Gastrointestinal motility is the physiological action of the digestive system responsible for moving the contents of the mouth towards the anus. The activity of smooth muscle cells and circular muscle cells is responsible for the displacement of the chyme by the digestive system.

    Anyone at any age can have periods of constipation, especially coinciding with changes in diet, travel, stress. Older or less active people have constipation more often. However, other times it is related to different diseases such as: diabetes, thyroid disorders, etc. Constipation can also cause some medications to treat chronic pain, depression and some heart diseases.
