Dried Apricots are surprisingly Effective
I really appreciate your description of the science behind how prunes/prune juice effect the colon. I unfortunately have not had good results with them although I have not taken them at meal times but in between meals (because I usually don't eat fruit with protein or vegetables). Do you think it is important to have them with meals for prunes to be effective? I, however, have been surprised at how effective dried apricots (unsulfered) are. Initially, I tried them along with prunes (2 of each) but then simply 2 or 3 dried apricots would do the trick. They would have an effect a few hours later or the next morning. But I also have the experience that they help in less than an hour which confuses me as this seems to be before they are digested and have reached the colon. I have not been able to find information about this. Could you write a similar article that articulates the science behind how dried apricots act on the body. Thank you!
