Contrary to what you’ve heard, your colon is not a sewer. Waste does not accumulate in your colon, build up and “poison” you with symptoms of lethargy and ill health. These beliefs are the theory of auto-intoxification and they’re false.
That’s good to know. So, if waste doesn’t build up in your insides, there’s no value to colon cleansing, right? And why am I constipated? Why the gas and why am I so tired all the time?
To answer the last question first, these are all symptoms of a troubled digestive system caused by inflammation of the delicate lining of the gastrointestinal tract. And to answer the first question, an effective colon cleanse system can fix them. But not by blasting the colon with harsh laxatives.
We’re of the persuasion that Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse is the best cleansing system available, and here’s why. A colon cleanse can indeed provide those benefits you’ve heard about, including:
- Less constipation and diarrhoea
- Reduced gas
- Increased energy
- More effective immune system
- Improved skin tone
- Better focus
- Less food cravings
Unfortunately, most colon cleansers don’t produce these benefits because they don’t address inflammation of the GI tract. In fact, most colon cleanse systems are little more than harsh laxatives that blast excrement out of the colon, which can alter the GI tract’s balance of micro-flora and lead to a series of health issues down the road, including worse symptoms, dependence, and in some cases, death.
Yes, it’s very important to choose a colon cleanser that respects your digestion system and gently nourishes the GI tract with safe nutrients that reduce inflammation and encourage good digestive function. And that’s why we think Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse is the safest and most effective colon cleanses system on the market today.
Truth be told, there is some validity to the principles of auto-intoxification. Excrement doesn’t build up in your colon, but inflammation of the GI tract operates in a process similar to the long-held belief that toxins can leak into the blood stream.
GI inflammation, triggered by a series of factors, including age, diet, stress, antibiotics and fatty acid deficiencies, starts a cycle in which cells separate and leak toxins into the rest of the body. You develop food allergies. You suffer from poor digestion and low energy as your liver works overtime to fight these toxins that would normally be blocked.
The cycle continues, and it’s made worse by most colon cleanse systems which, as we’ve reviewed, blast the colon of excrement and further anger the delicate lining of the GI tract. Symptoms get worse. And your health suffers.
Yet, an effective colon cleanse reduces GI inflammation and offers those benefits you’ve heard about. But you’ve got to use a safe, multi-stage system that offers digestion support and probiotics – the “friendly” bacteria that balance the micro-flora of the gut.
There are other considerations as well. You’re looking for a cleansing system with nutrients and herbals to reduce inflammation of the GI tract and Omega-3 supplementation. And you want natural laxatives to encourage gentle bowel movements.
Finally, when choosing a colon cleanses system, choose a product with ongoing nutrient and herbal support. Remember that digestive health is a journey. You don’t perform a colon cleanse and then revert to the old habits that may have caused the problems in the first place.
So, let’s recap. A safe, natural colon cleanse that walks you through the process with potent, yet nourishing herbals and nutrients, including fibre and gentle laxatives and probiotics and provides you with support required for future digestive health and function.
