Ground Roots: Natural Colon Cleanse is a fast-acting colon cleanser, designed for the chronically constipated in need of strong treatment for a blocked bowel. Purgatives have been combined with carminatives to prevent griping. Specifically, it's considered a bulk-forming laxative, which means it absorbs liquid and swells to form a gel.
We've all been there: After a busy week at work, or lots of time spent traveling, or just a string of eating way too much takeout or processed food, things can get a little (or a lot) backed up. Originally based on a Dr. John R. Christopher formula, this tried and tested combination of active ingredients is known as the ultimate herbal laxative.
Sugar beet fibre has also been added to the formula, to offer specific support for an increase in faecal bulk and normal bowel function. It 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.
So, since nobody wants to feel crampy and bloated or strain with all their might for minimal reward, this source of fibre may have a beneficial physiological effect for people who want to improve or maintain a normal bowel function.
It is also a powerful intestinal cleanser, which will "blast loose" residual intestinal congestion and get any bowel cleanse programme off to a good start.
This popular herbal combination is used extensively by colon hydrotherapists in combination with colonic hydrotherapy treatments.
Sugar beet fibre contributes to an increase in faecal bulk. Excess stress can bind you up, too. If you are stressed, your body and your digestive tract hears and feels that stress, and as a result it slows down... and when it slows down, you get constipated.
