The average person is exposed to over 123 toxic chemicals each day from food, water, air, stress and personal care products. When the colon is clogged or impacted, toxins back up in the body with nowhere to go. Leading holistic health resource Body Ecology claims that the average person has between 7 – 10 pounds of old fecal matter in their colon, even if they have a bowel movement each day. Blocked detoxification pathways lead to toxic decay, fermentation and putrefaction that accumulate on the walls of the colon. This creates a perfect breeding ground for parasites, yeast, bad bacteria and viruses that cause disease, and autointoxication, a process where toxins are absorbed back into the blood stream and inhibit the body’s ability to absorb beneficial nutrients from food.
This is why regular colon cleansing is such an important part of a healthier you.
The sugar beet fibre in this formula, in particular, contributes to an increase in faecal bulk in two ways: the insoluble components of the fibre increase faecal bulk by absorbing water in the large intestine, while the soluble components are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine leading to an increase in bacterial mass.
They also act to gently cleanse, stimulate and tone the bowel wall, supporting a move towards unassisted bowel movements.
