Just How Important is Colon Health?

Mar 26, 2008
Nowadays, "colon health" has become a major topic of concern. Information on colon can be found on nearly every health website, as well as important information on how to be certain that your colon is in good condition.

If you visit your local health store you are sure to find a section of supplements and other kinds of over-the-counter products focused entirely on "colon health".

There are products for "colon health" available at the local health store, which are available with the supplements or as an over-the-counter product.

Just how important is colon health? My attention was grabbed by it! So I made it my personal mission to learn all that I could about "colon health", since the media seemed to believe it was very important. In researching "colon health" I found many new and interesting facts in which I will share here.

What exactly is the Colon?

To begin with, it was important that I understand what the colon is. Of course I've always known that the colon is the large intestine. I am also aware of the fact that the large intestine forms part of the digestive system. Personally, with all the hype on colon, I thought that there must be much more to it. What I found was astonishing. In fact, the colon can't be simply labeled as just another part of the body. This part of our body plays many important roles in our health, and is roughly six feet in length.

I discovered some very interesting facts:

1) The colon has the most essential function in proper removal of waste from the body.

2) Bacterium of all different types can be found in the colon, all of which help move waste around the body properly. This was most interesting to me since most people consider bacteria undesirable but for optimal health a certain level is not only beneficial but is essential.

3) I discovered that the colon removes the liquids from the matters moving through the digestive tract, thus making them easier to destroy.

4) I also discovered that built up waste can cause a host of other problems. Did you know that a build up of waste could cause weight gain or nausea?

Frequent Problems of the Colon Knowing this, made me decide to look more into the "problems" of the colon. I wanted to know exactly what could go wrong since I certainly didn't want to experience weight gain or sickness, myself, because of a "colon problem".

After doing some research, I found some symptoms that might indicate poor colon health. Now that I've done my research I can rest easy, so for your sake I have listed below details of a few symptoms of possible colon problems.

- When it comes to colon health, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases such as ulcerative colitis and even Crohn's disease can indicate severe problems in the large intestines. In case you have some of these diseases, you can feel discomfort, experience bleeding and possibly acute diarrhea.

- Diverticulitis, also associated with colon complications is a condition in which little sacs or pouches are formed on the colon. In such a case, it is common for foods to get stuck. These pouches sometimes swell and many people with Diverticulitis complain of pain.

- There are many other problems with the colon that one can be subject to. Hemorrhoids, growths, and anal fissures are included in these.

Wrapping up In conclusion, I feel that I am more informed when it comes to the health and function of the colon, and as a result, I believe I understand the importance in discussing and understanding the colon and colon health.

The colon's function is to make sure that everything you eat is digested and transported properly throughout your body. In the event that the movement or digestion does not occur in a proper manner then you could notice that your weight increased and even that you have become sick.

So finally, you can see that the health of your colon is a very important matter. It is necessary to begin with the colon to reach optimal health.
