Poop: What’s Actually In It

Water makes up about 75% of your bowel movements. The remaining is an often-stinky mixture of fiber, dead and live micro organism, other cells, and mucus. Soluble fibers present in foods like beans and nuts are broken down during digestion and form a gel-like substance that turns into a part of your poop.
