The colon cleanse is touted as a great fat loss and curative product for detoxification in the market and all over the internet.
It is also claimed that a colon cleanse can give you better younger looking skin and more energy. So really what is the colon cleanse?
Well a colon cleanse is really a more advanced enema which clears the colon of waste products, including stored fecal matter, gas, mucus and is meant to remove the toxicity of the body.
When water is injected by way of enema into the colon using special equipment often times mixed with herbs or with other liquids, this is called Colon hydrotherapy.
Many kinds of colon cleanse come in the form of tablets which claim to orally clean the colon and ‘detoxify’, cure constipation as well as internally clean the colon. Oral cleaning uses dietary fiber, herbs, dietary supplements, or laxatives. In short colon cleanse is a form of detox.
The colon cleanse concept is based on the understanding that what we eat decomposes inside the body increasing its toxicity and producing pus.
Over time the bacterial infestation in the digestive system can become harmful and cause problems or illnesses, which is what is sought to be controlled and cleaned by colon cleansing.
