Eating prunes or drinking prune juice may not sound particularly appetizing to some people, but prunes are well-known as a laxative food, largely owing to its concentrated dietary fiber content. Dietary fiber can help to bind your stool and optimize digestion and bowel movements, effectively flushing your system. Not only can the dietary fiber in prunes clean out your gastrointestinal tracts, it also provides more efficient absorption of nutrients from your food and prevents the storage of calories as visceral fat, instead converting it to usable energy.
