Of the five main organs of elimination, including the skin, kidneys, lymph and lungs, the large intestine is arguably the most abused and neglected. Poor dietary choices, environmental contaminants and insufficient digestion all contribute to an excess of undigested food particles and toxins in the bowel, leading to putrefaction, gas and bloating and promote the growth of harmful microorganisms in the gut. Over time, the bowel becomes sluggish and is unable to carry out its eliminative functions. In a healthy individual, food should pass through the body in approximately 18 hours. Due to the overconsumption of processed foods, a lack of fresh, fibre-rich foods and water and an overload of chemical additives, bowel transit time for the average person is now between 48 and 96 hours. Insufficient elimination means food particles sit in the colon for longer periods of time, allowing for the reabsorption of wastes, cholesterol and by-products of bacterial fermentation
Cleansing the colon is crucial for the restoration of health and vitality. Almost all products of detoxification from the liver and other organs of detoxification end up in the large intestine to be eliminated. Proper functioning of this organ in the removal of wastes from the body is critical to prevent illness and disease and increasing energy levels.
Nat Colon CLR is a proprietary blend of organic or wildcrafted herbs that work synergistically to gently stimulate non-dependent eliminative process and restore tone and function to the large intestine without abrasive irritation or causing the colon to fill with water through larger dosing of magnesium derivatives (remember Milk of Magnesia operates on this principle).
