Do dried apricots give you diarrhea?
Dried fruits are high in fiber. You need fiber in your diet to improve regularity and promote bowel health, but too much fiber bothers your gut, especially if you do not normally consume high-fiber foods. Dried fruits may cause you to have gas, abdominal cramping, bloating, constipation or possibly diarrhea.
So we just went over the benefit of eating prunes (AKA dried plums), but that's not the only dried fruit that can offer you constipation relief. Popular dried fruits with respectable amounts of fiber include banana chips, dried apricots, dried apples, dried peaches, and dried cranberries.
- What To Eat And Drink To Help Your Digestion
- Raspberries. All berries boast a mighty fine amount of fiber, but at 8 grams per cup, raspberries stand out.
- Oranges. Forgo your a.m. cup of juice for the whole fruit.
- Brown Rice.
- Prune juice is an effective remedy for constipation in both children and adults. When giving prune juice to an infant, the Mayo Clinic recommends trying 2 to 4 ounces at a time and adjusting the amount as needed. For adults, drink 4 to 8 ounces of prune juice each morning to stimulate a bowel movement.
- Bananas Are High in Fiber. Fiber has long been claimed to help prevent and relieve constipation (2, 3). It's thought to absorb water, helping stools stay large and soft. This helps improve the movement of the stool through your digestive tract (4).
