Plantains contain a high amount of dietary fibre which helps ensure healthy bowels and reduces constipation.

Soluble fibre acts like a sponge, and soaks up water as the faeces passes through the intestines.

Plantain Helps To Maintain a Healthy Digestive Tract.
Plantains contain a high amount of dietary fibre which helps ensure healthy bowels and reduces constipation. The digestive system is lined with muscles that propel the food along the digestive tract from the throat through the bowels until the eventual waste is passed out of the body. Soluble fibre acts like a sponge, and soaks up water as the faeces passes through the intestines. This helps to bulk up and soften the faeces, allowing it to pass through the gut more easily. It also slows down the rate of digestion of food by the body. So eat some plantain to stock up on that dietary fibre!
