It usually works by slowing down the rhythm of digestion, so the small intestines get more time to absorb all the fluid and nutrients from the foods you eat. It helps in decreasing the number of bowel movements and makes the stool a little bit solid. It is also helpful in treating continuous diarrhoea in people with inflammatory bowel disease.
