5 Foods To Help “Poop Problems”

If you don't have poop problems, you probably don't give your bowels much thought. On the other hand, if you do have poop problems, that's probably all you can think about.

Either way, you should listen up because a few simple food hacks can do wonders for preventing digestive problems and for curing them too.

Having healthy bowels is key to feeling your best. This is how your body gets rid of all its wastes. You don't want those wastes sitting in your body for any longer than they have to be.

Sadly, at least 2% of the population under the age of 65 suffers from constipation on a regular basis and that number only increases after 65.

What you put into your body every day has huge influence on your bowels.

5 foods to eat for preventing and fixing “poop problems.”

1. Kefir

Number one on the list to eat if you're feeling a little backed up is kefir. This yogurt-like drink is loaded with probiotics that your intestines will love.

And research backs this up. One study noted that when people were given kefir, they had an increase in fecal moisture. Extra wetness in the digestive tract brings welcomed relief if constipation is a problem.

Plus, the probiotics in kefir help boost your immune system and keep your energy levels high.

2. Prunes 

Prunes gained their claim to fame for helping with regularity. That's because of their insoluble fibers and sorbitol (a natural laxitive).

As a bonus, prunes do a great job at lowering cholesterol levels.

Are You Going Enough?


3. Beans

Another fiber-packed food you’ll want to add to your diet plan if you need relief from constipation quickly is beans. Beans offer 10 grams of fiber (or more!) per cup depending on the type, so are a great option for those who are looking to really get things moving.

The complex carbs in beans are also excellent for controlling blood glucose levels. This helps you regulate insulin and ward off diabetes.

Try replacing the protein you eat a few night’s a week for some beans instead.

4. Kiwi’s

It's often overlooked but kiwi fruit is a must have.

One study had subjects eat 3 kiwi fruits every day. The percentage of people who reported at least 3 or more stools per week shot up from 82.61% to 97.78%.

Adding this fruit to your diet, if you're constipated, could be a way to find relief.

5. Pineapple

Just like prunes, this fruit has a natural laxative that can help with regularity.

It also has enzymes that are especially helpful for breaking down protein.

If you eat a meat-heavy diet, pineapple is a fruit that you want to be sure you're eating.

If you pay close attention to what you are (or aren’t) eating, you can lend your digestive system a hand and feel your best.
