A healthy colon improves your overall health and also helps your digestive system. In order for our bodies to function regularly, it is imperative that our digestive systems are in working and healthy condition. This is why it is extremely important to keep our colon as healthy as possible.
Waste buildup in your colon can result in toxin buildup which causes constipation, and removing these toxins from our colons can help improve our overall health. Amy Foxx-Orenstein, the former president of the American College of Gastroenterology, suggests cleaning your colon naturally as opposed to the more popular yet artificial colon cleanses like laxatives. Of course, it is always recommended that you consult your doctor before making any dietary or lifestyle changes that may affect your digestive system.
If you’re interested in learning more about removing toxins from your colon, here’s how.
Firstly, drink more water. Water flushes out toxins in your colon and can also flush out feces or thicker stools, which can result in uncomfortable bowel movements.
Drinking water assists with the formation of mucus inside your colon, which allows you to experience easier bowel movements.
Most people don’t know this, but vegetable juices and fresh fruit are great and cheap colon cleansers.
If you’re prone to gas and/or bloating, you may want to stick to vegetable juice instead of fruit.
