Nourishment Notes

Old Fashioned Oats

Oats are rich in water-absorbing soluble fiber. This type of fiber can be especially beneficial for diarrhea, as it absorbs excess water in the bowel, potentially providing diarrhea relief.


Bananas help bind water and slow digestion, minimizing bathroom trips.
