Figs have been an important part of gastrointestinal health for generations, primarily due to their high dietary fiber content, which can help to regulate the bowels and eliminate constipation. This means less straining and pushing when you’re relieving yourself, and subsequently a lower chance of developing hemorrhoids or making them worse.

They also possess a number of antioxidant compounds and vitamins to speed healing and sooth inflammation. Protection Status
