Beat constipation and diarrhea with apple ten times more than drugs
Some of us, especially Americans have failed to realize "the simplest answers are the best". Better health could be as easy as reaching for the fruit bowl, and not the pharmacist next door.
Whether you can’t go to the bathroom or you just can’t stop, fibre found in apples can help. Fibre can either pull water out of your colon to keep things moving along when you’re backed up, or absorb excess water from your stool to slow your bowels down.
Apples contain pectin, which helps bulk up the stool to treat diarrhea and constipation. Apples also contain some chemicals that seem to be able to kill bacteria. Apple peel contains a chemical called ursolic acid that is suspected to have a role in building muscle and metabolism.
Constipation can make you feel bloated, and eating apple can be a remedy because it is high in dietary fiber. Apples is a good choice because much of their fiber can be found in its edible skin.
Next time, before you reach out for synthetic drugs take a look at your fruit bow, apple can do the magic.
