Tamarind can be used as a natural laxative, and it also helps treat chronic diarrhea. Tamarind treats constipation and diarrhea naturally by increasing the effectiveness of the digestive tract. Symptoms of constipation include bloating, lethargy, hard stools, and difficulty having bowel movements. Research studies have found the pulp of tamarind to be an effective remedy for improving bowel movements because it contains dietary fibers and different forms of sugar known as saccharides, which stimulate the gastric juices responsible for digestion. Food is dissolved and propelled through the digestive tract at a faster rate. The fiber also eases the movement of stool as it travels through the digestive tract. Tamarind can also help treat the loose, watery stools characteristic of diarrhea by bulking up the stool due to its high fiber content.
