Colon cleanses were performed since the ancient Greece, and they are extremely beneficial methods for boosting the function of the colon and improving the general health.
Nowadays, colon cleanses are performed because of the theory of autointoxication.
Undigested foods, especially the meats, can cause an accumulation of mucus in the colon which produces toxins and poisons in the body, and that leads to weight gain, fatigue, low energy levels, and headaches
Whenever you are preparing vegetable or fruit colon cleanses, take care to add those that are high in fiber and nutrients that are going to replace the eliminated toxins.
Apples are abundant in soluble fiber and that provides a feeling of satiety and helps with loose stools. They also have insoluble fiber that relieves constipation, adds bulk to stool, and help the bowel movements.
Chia is rich in fiber which boosts the health of the digestive tract. Moreover, they are abundant in vitamins and nutrients that afterward are going to be absorbed by the body.
These seeds also keep you feel full, thus helping the weight loss process. Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that can strengthen the heart pumping.
Flax seeds are also full with fiber, which enhances the absorption of nutrients by the intestines and delay the gastric emptying. Furthermore, they also help to prevent colon cancer.
Flax seeds have very powerful antioxidant properties, which promote the health of the heart and prevent heart diseases. Flax is also abundant in the heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.
