Foods that may cause Diarrhea

Healthline writes that the body's immune system is working overtime to flush out whatever virus or bacteria are responsible for your diarrhea. It's crucial that you are conscious of the fact that certain foods can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. Diarrhea may be triggered after eating certain meals if you have a food intolerance. This article takes a look at five foods commonly associated with diarrhea. Here are just a few examples:

1. very spicy foods

The digestive system of certain people can't handle the heat of spicy foods, and they end up throwing up or having diarrhea as a result. This can happen if you make food with strong spices that your body isn't used to. Consuming big quantities of a food that contains chili pepper and curry blend can lead to diarrhea. Capsaicin, found in chili peppers, is what gives them their characteristic heat, so knowing this is vital. Too much chili pepper in your cookery could cause unpleasant diarrhea.

2. Dairy products, including milk and cheese, ice cream, and sour cream

Drinking milk while lactose intolerant can worsen your diarrhea symptoms. Inadequate enzyme production in the body causes lactose intolerance, therefore it's important to know that you can't eat dairy if you're lactose intolerant. Instead of being metabolized, the sugar is eliminated in a diarrheic bowel movement.

3. Cafeteria,

Three daily cups of coffee consumption was associated with an increased incidence of diarrhea in one research. Coffee's caffein content is well-documented for its ability to prompt a bowel movement. You should know that adding milk, cream, or sugar substitutes to your coffee can increase the laxative effect of the coffee.

4. Fructose

Due to their naturally occurring fructose content, fruits make for a healthy snack. Drinking too much of it can make you sick to your stomach.

5. Cooked onions and garlic

The juice in garlic and onions, when broken down by stomach acid, can irritate the bowels and cause them to leak gas. Onions and garlic also have sulfur. Fructans are found in garlic and onions and are poorly absorbed by the body. It's crucial that you understand this. If you eat too much of these, you can get sick.
