These Natural Colon Cleansers
Assist Colon Detox

flax is one of the great natural colon cleansers

The least objectionable methods for natural colon cleansers revolves around the gelatinous seed families.

Psyllium seed is the most popular, although flax and chia also work well.

These all natural fiber products absorb and expand 10-15 times their weight in water.

They act as intestinal brooms, sweeping out pockets of old fecal matter as they move down the digestive tract.

You must take lots of liquid with these drinks, generally two glasses of juice or water.

Otherwise the gel can harden, making it incredibly difficult to pass.

Don't let that scare you though - they are incredibly safe when you follow the directions.

The best time to take these drinks is on an empty stomach in the mornings. Wait about 30 minutes or so before eating anything.

And certainly don't take any medications or nutritional supplements with the drink.

The fiber makes it incredibly hard for any digestive fluids to get to these substances. Take any pills or supplements later in the day.

If you are looking for colon cleansing herbs, there are basically two types.

The first type of herb acts as a tonic to heal the colon. Peppermint, wheatgrass, aloe, and golderseal fall in this category.

The second type of herb acts as an irritant to the colon. It assists peristalsis because the digestive tract wants to remove the substance as quickly as possible. Cascara sagrada and senna are two good examples.

Raw juices are also good to cleanse your colon. Particularly helpful are juices that contain celery, carrot, spinach, rhubarb, and apple. But they don't need to be together in one juice!

Finally, let's not forget about probiotics and prebiotics, which are very nourishing to the colon.
