Poop is the body’s natural way of getting rid of waste and toxins. This term poop has been derived from the Middle English word ‘Poupen’ that means ‘blow a horn’. Human waste is generally made up of fiber, undigested food, salt, phosphates and dead and live bacteria. The consistency of the human feces depends on what you are eating. Our poop is about 75% water and the rest 25% is solid like bacteria, indigestible food, fats etc. A minimum of 25-35 grams of fiber per day is required to get to ideal pooping level.
