Colon cleanse

Colon cleanse

The colon is an essential for a healthy digestive system. The purpose of the colon is to process waste from the food you eat, turn it into feces, and send it out of your body.

According to the American Cancer Society, “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States.” It is important to keep the colon clean and healthy to prevent constipation, colon diseases, and colon cancer.

Did you know?

The Colon: It is filled with good and bad bacteria. You want to keep your colon in healthy condition and running smoothly to flush out toxic chemicals.

Eat or drink more of the following:

1. Apples: They are powerful for colon health. Studies show that the oligosaccharides produced from eating organic apples can kill cancer cells.

2. Water: It is important to drink plenty of water. It not only helps the colon, but cleanses the whole digestive system, making it run more efficiently. Get a good water filter to make sure you are drinking pure water.

3. Cucumber: They contain a very high amount of water, which we have seen is great for the colon. The peels are also loaded with fiber, which help remove toxins in the gut.

4. Carrots: Luteolin, an antioxidant found in organic carrots, blocks cell signaling pathways in colon cancer cells. Carrots are also high in fiber.

5. Raw honey: Good raw honey such as organic manuka honey helps reduce colon inflammation in cases of inflammatory bowel disease.

6. Lemons: They are a great source of vitamin C, which destroys free radicals and toxins throughout the body. Free radicals are linked to serious diseases including colon cancer.
