What Colon Cleansing Formulas Are The Most Effective?

Mar 5, 2008
Your colon is important to your overall health and wellbeing. When it becomes clogged bacteria and toxins that are normally removed from the body during the normal digestive process begin to accumulate. These toxins and bacteria can begin to affect other parts of your body. Thankfully, there are numerous colon cleansing formulas that help unclog the colon and remove these toxins. Most of these formulas used clean the entire the digestive system. However, not all are the same or act in the same way.

Colon cleansing products come in a variety of different forms, normally as capsules, drinks or a diet. The formulas used in these products vary from one product to the other depending on the category they fall into.

Broadly speaking, there are two categories. Oxygen based cleansers are scientifically formulated, and very safe and effective. They gently liquefy the stool in the bowl and remove the toxins through the increased bowls movements. Oxygen based cleansers are typically the most effective colon cleansing formulas available.

The other type of colon cleansers are herb based formulas. Many people prefer these types of formulas but they are not as effective oxygen based cleansers. The herbs that you typically find in these colon cleansers are:

- Aloe Leaf, which helps the body absorb nutrients during digestion and a natural laxative.

- Cascara Sagrada, a natural laxative.

- Ginger which helps break down proteins to rid the stomach and intestines of gas. It also aids in the digestion of fatty foods.

- Cayenne Pepper which was used by Chinese herbalists for digestive ailments. Soothes the digestive tract and helps digest food.

- Senna which stimulates gastric juices and helps ease constipation.

Herb based colon cleansing formulas vary greatly in quality and effectiveness. Typically, the best colon cleansers are made by experienced herbalists and contain herbs that destroy the bacteria and remove the toxins with in the bowls. It is important that you use a cleanser that has herbs that are of the highest quality. Lesser quality herbal products won't necessarily do you any harm but will give you a poorer cleanse, won't remove toxins as effectively and will probably mean that you will have to redo the cleanse a short time period after you finish the first.

Regardless of the colon cleansing formula that you use, you should implement diet and lifestyle changes. It is important that you avoid the foods full of sugar, white flour and fats that contributed to your blocked colon in the first place. You should also implement some sort of exercise regime to help your bowl movements. Other unhealthy habits such as smoking and excessive drinking will also help to keep your colon in the best health possible.

Using colon cleansing formulas properly will result in improvements in a short space of time and will lead to a healthier body in general. How often you colon cleanse will depend on your lifestyle habits, diet and exercise. However, a regular cleansing will do wonders for your health and wellbeing, and will keep your colon in top health.
