Fungus is a large mushroom vegetable we often eat. Many people think that eating fungus can cure constipation. This idea is not wrong, because fungus is rich in dietary fiber, which is considered to treat constipation. However, many people will find that the problem of constipation caused by black fungus has not been solved. What is going on?
Constipation is a common digestive problem and most people suffer from constipation. When it comes to constipation, many people think of eating more vegetables, eating bananas, drinking honey water, and even sesame oil. There are too many dietary treatments for folks to treat constipation. It seems that constipation is a very good solution.
But in fact, constipation is not solved so well. Constipation is not a disease, but a symptom. There are many reasons that can cause constipation. Lack of dietary fiber, weakened intestinal motility, dehydration, abnormal cauda equina dysfunction, congenital megacolon, poor bowel habits, emotional tension, tumors, etc. can all manifest as constipation . Eating less dietary fiber is just one of many causes of constipation. Therefore, the fungus relief effect of fungus is only applicable to constipation caused by eating less dietary fiber. For constipation caused by other reasons, it is not useful to eat more fungus.
But even for constipation caused by lack of dietary fiber, the effect of fungus is limited. Why do you say that?
Fungus relieves constipation mainly by dietary fiber, and does not itself contain medicinal ingredients for treating constipation. Therefore, whether fungus can relieve constipation depends on how much dietary fiber the constipated person can get from the fungus. In general, dietary fiber deficiency can reach 10 to 20 grams per day to cause constipation. The dietary fiber content of Agaric fungus is about 2.6%, and if you want to consume 10 grams of dietary fiber from fungus, you must eat 400 grams of fungus. Is it a bit difficult to eat so much fungus?
Under normal circumstances, adults need 20 to 30 grams of dietary fiber per day. In order to achieve this amount, you need to eat a pound of vegetables, half a catty of fruit every day, and some coarse grains and miscellaneous beans. Fungus is just one of the vegetables. It can not be solved by eating fungus alone. The key to treating constipation caused by dietary fiber deficiency is a healthy and balanced diet.
People with constipation need to eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, and exercise moderately. If you still can’t solve the problem, you still have to go to the hospital to check for specific reasons, so as not to delay some major diseases that cause constipation.
