With all the additives in our food, pesticides on our crops, and pollution all around us. All that toxic buildup can take its toll on the colon, which negatively affects digestion and overall health. Your body does a good job detoxifying itself on a regular basis; however, some toxins require some help to facilitate removal. Five great benefits of colon cleansing you should know: 1. Improves Digestion and Prevents Occasional Constipation When digestion is impaired, and constipation ensues, waste products can linger in your body. This whole process can lead to the inability to absorb many of the nutrients you’re taking in, leading to a lack of energy and hampered immune function. Detoxing your colon allows those undigested waste products to be pushed through your system. Since lingering waste can breed bacteria, this purge clears the way for good nutrient absorption. 2. Increases Energy and Concentration - Cleansing your colon allows energy from the intestines to focus elsewhere, meaning your energy levels could improve. Nutrition is crucial to mental health, and weak absorption of nutrients may lead to loss of concentration. In addition to having more energy, absorption of crucial vitamins responsible for mental clarity is improved. 3. Jump Starts Weight Loss - Low-fiber food is often part of an unhealthy diet. Without adequate fiber, digestion and the body’s ability to feel “full” are affected. Low fiber foods also linger much longer in the gut. When you cleanse the colon, this matter is flushed from the system and may lead to significant weight loss. 4. Supports Overall Colon Health - All the toxins you take into your body make their way to the colon. By not cleansing your colon (and liver), toxins can linger in the body and cause untold damage 5. Encourages Whole Body Detox- Sometimes the combination of environmental factors and poor lifestyle habits make it hard to catch up and your body may show signs of toxic colon overload.
