Colon Cleansing Herbs
A List of the Best Herbs
to Cleanse and Detox the Colon

its effort to cleanse itself. Some act as laxative and help in removing excess toxins and waste. Others are great
aids for aleviating flatulence, indigestion and rebuilding bowel flora.
How to use colon cleansing herbs?
When you take herbs for detoxing, it is well worth to look for good quality. Organically grown would certainly be the
best choice. Commercial products may contain toxic residues from chemical pesticides, fungicides and irradiation which
can lessen their valuable properties.
Herbal remedies can be taken as tea's, added to food or in form of pills or capsules. The advantage of supplements
is that they are more concentrated which makes them more powerful.
If you deside to make your own herbal tea mixture, be careful which herbs you mix together.
Certain herbs may alter other's active substances making them ineffective. A safer way is to buy pre-mixed products
from health shops.
To increase intestinal detoxification it is recommended to drink a lot of water as with any other colon detox method.
It helps to flush out toxins and waste more thoroughly. I suggest drinking filtered water only.
Also, to get the most out of colon cleanse herbs it is advisable to follow a healthy diet with lots of fresh food.
