It works by slowing down the digestive tract
As stated before, it’s pretty simple. A normal person usually experiences a daily bowel movement, which is perfectly normal. For patients who have problems with their digestive tract, are undergoing a procedure, or have already undergone surgery, a low residue diet slows down their digestive tract significantly allowing them to recover and reduce inflammation in their intestinal tract. It's a simple and proven diet that allows the digestive tract to heal itself after trauma or surgery.
