In this video, we’re going to talk about using green bananas for diarrhea.

When you have diarrhea, you lose a lot of nutrients, including zinc. The depletion of nutrients and dehydration can be life-threatening.

It’s essential to replenish your electrolytes, gut microbes (probiotics), and other nutrients. Kombucha tea is an excellent source of lactic acid, which is great for those with diarrhea.

In the past, I’ve talked about using blackberries as a remedy for diarrhea. However, I have an even better diarrhea remedy for you today.

The best remedy for diarrhea is organic green bananas.

Green bananas won’t cause a sharp spike in blood sugars like ripe bananas do. This is because they contain something called resistant starch—this acts like fiber. In turn, this supplies healthy gut microbes with fuel and provides small-chain fatty acids (SCFA). SCFAs help you retain fluid.

Green bananas also contain some nutrients like potassium.

Make sure you cook the green bananas before you consume them. You can fry them with sea salt.

If you have chronic diarrhea, make sure you talk to your doctor immediately. Diarrhea can have long-term health issues if not addressed.
