Among the dietary products that favorably affect the normal operation of the entire gastrointestinal tract, the first places are rightfully occupied by apples and prunes.
Fresh apples have a high content of B vitamins, vitamins A, C, E, K, P, PP, a number of fruit acids, tannins, including pectin, nitrogenous substances. In addition, they contain fiber and about thirty different microelement names. The apples are rich in fruit sugars, organic and fatty acids. Apples are recommended for use in diseases:

The use of apple for the prevention and restoration of the normal life of the human body is dictated by its exceptional natural composition. However, in some cases, fruits, having a slight laxative effect, can cause diarrhea. This is due to the fact that they contain a sufficiently large amount of sucrose and fructose, which causes fermentation in the intestine. Eating apples after eating, especially after a plentiful, on the intestine is given an additional load, and the process of splitting fruit sugars is very difficult. As a result, diarrhea appears.
Fiber is an indispensable element in ensuring normal bowel function, but its excessive amount provokes diarrhea, especially with a weak stomach. Diarrhea from apples can occur after ingestion of immature fruit or processed for better preservation of chemicals.
Another reason for the occurrence of diarrhea from apples is the consumption of a lot of fruit of acid varieties. The fact is that natural acids inhibit or even block substances that are responsible for salivary digestion. With insufficient salivation, the starch contained in the food directly enters the stomach, provoking flatulence and the appearance of diarrhea.
