VitaCol Clense Natura 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.
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.
As such, 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.

What is black garlic and why is it different?
Black garlic was born in Korea and is raw garlic that has been fermented. Raw garlic is placed in humidity and temperature controlled room for 30 days then moved to another room for 45 days to ‘oxidise’. This process creates garlic that is black in colour, softer in texture and has a more mild taste.
As raw garlic breaks down during fermentation, antioxidant levels increase. Black garlic also contains more sulphur compounds than regular garlic. One very important compound is s-allyl-cysteine or SAC; black garlic contains 5.84mg of SAC as opposed to raw garlic 0.32mg content. This compound is more stable than allicin and is easily absorbed by the body.
In response to the natural process of degradation of fresh garlic, scientists discovered a way to stabilise it whilst preserving all its healing qualities. What they in fact found was a way to enhance garlic’s properties, whilst maintaining its purity. They did this by ageing garlic in a temperature and moisture controlled environment.
