Bananas?

Do they help constipation or make it worse? My husband and I can't agree on this one...

  • Make it worse. BRAT diet= Bananas, rice cereal, applesauce and toast. For diarrhea.

  • I'm pretty sure they are binding. But what are you defining as constipation?

  • They won't hurt. They're high in soluble fiber, which helps regulate the bowels (won't cause diarrhea, but will help get moisture into the intestines.)

  • Apple Juice helps relieve constipation as well as Prune Juice.

  • In my experience it has always made it worse. Although, when faced with the "runs" it is a life saver!
