Diarrhea is basically an Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) that affects many people irrespective of age and sex. You eat something wrong; you have to rush to the washroom many times a day. You may become weak, awful and dehydrated by these frequent bowel movements. To make life a little easy when you have diarrhea, let us discuss some foods that you should have to make your diarrhea better.

The BRAT Diet:

If you didn’t know about the BRAT diet, today is a good day to know about it. BRAT (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast) is a diet that helps overcome diarrhea.

Banana contains the following ingredients that help your digestive system and your body:

Pectin: Soluble form of fiber that absorbs water content and expands so that the food moves slowly and gradually through the intestine.

Potassium: Works for the lost about of electrolytes in stool.

Inulin: Fiber content that not only helps in movement of the food but also has pre-biotic property.

Rice can help you feel better. Due to the fact that it is low in fiber content, the carbohydrate in rice gets digested in the small intestine before reaching the end of the GIT. You can also go for mashed or boiled potatoes.

Applesauce is yet another comforter in your condition. Raw apple rich in pectin may be too rough, but cooked apple has the goodness in a more easily digestible form.

Toast and other processed whole grains should be consumed because they are easily digestible. You can eat crackers which have added salt which will help you maintain electrolyte balance.
