Fortunately, several natural fiber sources, detox herbs, probiotics and plant enzymes possess beneficial cleansing and strengthening properties that can promote a healthier gastrointestinal system.*
Why should you complete a colon cleanse?
The colon's purpose is to expel the toxins and wastes that it collects from the other organs of the body.* If the colon is not operating efficiently and is full of encrusted toxins and wastes, then it may be recycling waste back into the body which can accumulate in our organs.*
A good colon cleanse program should always begin by removing the wastes in your colon, the last portion of your food processing chain.* You can cleanse other parts of the body such as the liver, lungs, kidneys and the cardiovascular system without completing a colon cleanse, but much more effective and long term results have been realized by people who have completed a colon cleanse first.*
Did you know?
A person on a typical Western diet can hold 8 meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon, while the person on the high fiber diet holds only 3.*
A constipated system is one in which the transition, or transit time, of wastes is slow and the consistency of the stool can cause strain.* The longer the transit time, the longer the waste matter sits in our bowel which allows proteins to putrefy, fats to rancify, and carbohydrates to ferment.* Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste matter putrefying in your colon at all times.* Your system can also become continuously self-polluting by the gases that are caused by the stagnation of waste in your bowels.*
The long held belief of some health professionals is that many people just have fewer bowel movements than others. This is true, but they also neglect to inform these individuals that those having fewer bowel movements are harboring a fertile breeding ground for bacteria.* Alternating between constipation and diarrhea, or diarrhea alone, are also indications of foul matter in your intestines.* The colon is the body's sewer system, and if not treated properly can accumulate toxins, which can be absorbed into the bloodstream.*
