Healthy Colon contains a combination of herbs that work together to help cleanse the body of toxic buildup in the intestines. Healthy Colon delivers healthy nutrients to the bloodstream throughout the intestines and it soothes with aloe as it works. As Healthy Colon moves through the waste disposal system of the human body it provides ample Psyllium fiber for scrubbing the intestine walls. This product also contains special ingredients that perform as a sponge and help absorb toxic waste, and then expel it from the body.
Plantago Psyllium Seed grows throughout the world but thrives in moist, wet areas. Columbia Institute of Human Nutrition conducted a study which found 88 percent of Americans are unaware of the recommended daily allowance for fiber in their diets. In addition, only 10 percent of Americans ingest the recommended amount of daily fiber. This means that most people are not having proper bowel movements, which may lead to ballooned intestines, polyps, or colon cancers.
Psyllium is a widely recognized herb that is used for intestinal cleansing and weight loss. The seed husks of Psyllium are the part of the plant which is harvested for its mucilage. The mucilage is a gelling agent, that when combined with water expands to nearly 10 times its original size. This is the reason it makes a person feel full after they have taken the supplement. Psyllium husks also help to somewhat scrub the intestinal walls as they move throughout. This herb is also beneficial when applied to poison ivy rashes, insect bites, boils and acne.
Bentonite is a cleansing product that is essentially, weathered volcanic ash. Bentonite clay has detoxifying properties which have been recognized by humans for centuries.
According to Ray Knishinsky, author of “The Clay Cure: Natural Healing from the Earth” (Healing Arts Press, 1998. Print.) Bentonite clay is unique in its ability to naturally attract toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides) and safely remove them from the body. The large, negatively charged molecules in Bentonite attract and collect the positively charged particles of the toxins, which help them adhere to the surface area of the clay.
Dr. Bernard Jensen, author of Jensen’s Guide to Diet and Detoxification: Healthy Secrets from Around the World. (McGraw-Hill, 2000. Print.) explains that bentonite helps to thoroughly cleanse and absorb toxins before leaving the body and that the use of bentonite clay has been practiced by people throughout the world with no known negative effects.
Cascara Sagrada is found in the Pacific Northwest from Canada to California. Traditionally, the plant has been used by Native Americans as a mild laxative and is still widely used in holistic treatment for chronic constipation. The bark of this plant is harvested in the summer months then aged from one to three years before it is put into medicinal use.
By creating a peristalsis action, it may help relieve constipation and also strengthen muscles in the intestinal tract. When taken in the evening, a morning bowel movement is to be expected.
Garlic has long been considered an invaluable herb for centuries and is used by most cultures throughout the world. Garlic is considered to be a powerful antioxidant (responsible for killing free radicals in the body). Free radicals can harm DNA and increase the age process by destroying cells in the body. Taking garlic everyday may help prevent a person from getting a common cold, ward off infections, aid in digestion, cleanse the blood stream of toxins and prevent blood clots, in addition to countless other health benefits.
In the Journal of Hypertension a clinical trial was published in which some patients were able to reduce their blood pressure from between 1% to 5% after taking garlic supplements. By reducing blood pressure by just this small percentage, it can reduce the chance of a stroke by 30-40% and heart disease by 20-25%.
Rosehips (the round portion of the rose flower just below the petals) are a great natural source of the antioxidant Vitamin C. Rosehips are also rich in lycopene and contain Vitamin A and some B vitamins, as well as some essential fatty acids and flavonoids.
Aloe Vera, when taken internally, is used to stimulate bowel movements and provides many essential nutrients. Aloe contains over 20 amino acids, and Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E. It is a well-known remedy for skin conditions, but it can also be orally ingested for help inside the body.
At the heart of the Aloe plant is a liquid gel substance that is 96% water and the other 4% contains seventy-five well-known substances, which give this plant its healing properties.
Aloe Vera has been used to effectively help intestinal disorders. In one study published in the Journal of Alternative Medicine, ten patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease were each given two ounces of Aloe Vera juice, three times daily for a seven day period. After the one-week trial, all ten patients were relieved of diarrhea; three of the patients reported increased energy; and four of the patients reported improved bowel regularity.
Rhubarb Root is a perennial vegetable that has great healing qualities inside the intestinal tract. It is often used to rid the body of diarrhea and purge toxins from the intestines. Rhubarb root is good for the digestive system as it helps regulate the absorption of fats and aids in relieving constipation and soothes an inflamed colon.
