Aids Digestive Health
Tamarind is a natural laxative because the fiber helps to bulk up the stool in the digestive tract. This process makes easier for the stool to move through the smooth muscles of the intestinal tract.
Studies have shown that eating tamarind can also be effective against chronic diarrhea.
