Eating cooked apples can stop diarrhea

There are many ways to stop diarrhea. In addition to using drugs to stop diarrhea, food can also be used to stop diarrhea. The most common dietary treatment for diarrhea is to eat cooked apples. It should be emphasized here that if apples are to be used to stop diarrhea, they must be cooked.

Apple contains tannic acid and pectin, tannic acid can reduce the water content in stool, thus achieving the effect of antidiarrhea. At the same time, the pectin component of Apple also has antidiarrheal effect after boiling, and can absorb bacteria and toxins in intestinal tract. The flesh and peel of Apple contain tannic acid, and the peel contains more tannic acid. Therefore, do not peel the apple to avoid the loss of active ingredients.

Be careful:
Eating raw apples may aggravate diarrhea, because unheated pectin can soften stool and relieve constipation.

Diarrhea patients should take more liquid, because diarrhea will cause water loss, patients should pay more attention to dietary habits, do not eat too much greasy, high-fat and difficult to digest food, such as fried food and pastries, fat meat and so on. Don't eat too many raw and cold fruits and vegetables, such as peaches, watermelons, bananas, etc. Diarrhea patients should pay more attention to rest during the illness and adjust their mentality.
