How do prunes work on the digestive system?

Research is currently underway to find out which components in prunes benefit digestive health. For sure their high fibre content helps but there is likely a combination of components creating the benefits.   Prunes contain  soluble and insoluble fibre. Both types of fibre work to increase stool bulk and normal bowel function is dependent on a higher stool weight. Additionally, prunes contain a polyol called sorbitol.  Like a sponge, sorbitol attracts and holds water, not all the sorbitol is digested, and this further facilitates normal bowel function.
