You can get constipated if you eat unripe bananas. These are loaded with starch, making it difficult for the body to digest them. Ripe bananas, on the other hand, help ease constipation. Dietary fiber found in ripe bananas helps move intestinal water into the stools. However, if you’re dehydrated, avoid all kinds of bananas completely to prevent constipation. Be careful about feeding bananas to babies as well, as an excess amount can constipate them.
