Arrow is starch that is easily digestible which is used for the treatment of digestive distress. It is given as easily digestible foods for the people just recovering from long ailment. Women who are pregnant or are breastfeeding should stay away from arrowroot as well. Constipation and Dyspepsia may be the most common known side effect of arrowroot. It works well for digestive issues like bloating, diarrhea cramps etc. During constipation the faeces become very dry and hard. This causes a strain on the patient while trying to pass stools.

Foods that are rich in fiber are essential to help deal with constipation blues. Vegetables and fruits, such as cabbage and tomatoes have high fiber content

If it causes constipation in some people - would it be likely to reduce symptoms of IBS D in those prone to diarrhoea?
