Apple can regulate gastrointestinal treatment for constipation and diarrhea
Apple has a good gastrointestinal conditioning effect, suitable for constipation and diarrhea patients.
So, how can constipation and diarrhea patients eat apples to better play their role in conditioning the stomach?
The reason why apples have the dual functions of antidiarrheal and laxative is because apples contain special substances such as metabolic acids, pectin, and fiber supplements.
Unheated pectin softens the stool and, together with the intended fiber, triggers a laxative effect.
The boiled pectin is transformed, not only has the effect of absorbing bacteria and toxins, but also has the effect of astringent and antidiarrheal.
Therefore, it is recommended that patients with constipation eat more fresh apples (1-2 apples can be eaten on an empty stomach every morning and evening), and patients with diarrhea do not prevent the apples from being cooked.
The implanted acid in apples also has an astringent effect, it can reduce the water in the stool, thereby stopping diarrhea.
In children with diarrhea, parents can first wash the apples with boiling water, boil them in boiling water for 5-8 minutes, peel them, and use a spoon to shave them into mud, 4 times a day, 50 grams each; 30 grams for babies under one year, Serving 3-4 times a day.
You can also take one fresh apple, wash it, add 3 bowls of water, and cook into 2 bowls. It is better to have thick juice, one dose per day, instead of fruit juice.
Rich in acid is more abundant in the peel, while in the pulp, especially near the peel, the pectin content is relatively rich.
Therefore, when adults eat ripe apples, it is best to eat it with the skin, so that the effect of stopping diarrhea will be better.
