10 Foods That Help You Poop

Despite it being an activity that we all do, often times every day, pooping is not a subject that comes up often in polite conversations. More often than not, it is tucked away, or a source of embarrassment, the butt of a joke, and so on. However, pooping is no laughing matter. Serious difficulty pooping can point to serious medical issues that need to be addressed as quickly as possible.  Of course, it could also be that a lack of fiber is causing your toilet trouble. Filling out your fiber will beef up your stool, which will help with bowel movements.

10. Raspberries

Natural sources of sugar tend to be better balanced than artificially sweetened food items. Raspberries pack a powerful flavor punch and appreciable levels of dietary fiber per 100 grams. They are even safe for diabetics to consume in moderation because they can also keep your blood glucose at the appropriate level by slowing the rise of blood sugar. Furthermore, they can contribute to heart health by keeping cholesterol levels under control through the way they pull cholesterol away from the heart. Raspberries can also provide a feeling of fullness, which helps to keep you from eating too many of them.

9. Apples

An apple a day staves off more than just doctors. This popular fruit provides significant levels of fiber, typically between 2.5 to 5 grams of it, which as you know, keeps away constipation. What makes apples particularly special is their abundance of flavonoids, which may provide various health effects. They also contain a smattering of vitamins and minerals which can help the immune system, improve eye, skin, and hair health, and other benefits. Additionally, apples do not contain much in the way of sugar or fat, making them quite the healthy snack, particularly when they are paired with peanut butter.
