Fibers are long chains of carbohydrates that are undigestable to the human digestive tract. Consuming enough fiber in your diet is important, as it bulks up the stools and allows them to retain moisture better, resulting in easier defecation.

Some foods that have high amounts of fiber include legumes or beans, artichokes, apples, bananas, broccoli, and carrots.
