Prunes or dried plums
Prunes are a good source of dietary fiber, along with the components sorbitol and isatin, which help in regulating the colon. According to research studies, dried plums or prunes are more effective in treating digestive disorders such as constipation and colon issues. Sorbitol and isatin have a laxative effect and encourage the secretion of fluids in the bowels and promote the efficient flushing of waste through the colon.
The fleshy and fibrous pear fruit has a very important role to play in the colon. With a single serving of pears providing 18% of the daily requirement for fiber intake, they can be a very strong agent for digestive health and function. Most of the fiber in pears is non-soluble polysaccharide (NSP), which means that it acts as a bulking agent in the intestines. It accumulates the food and adds bulk so it is easier to pass through the colon.
