Ladies and gentlemen, today is your lucky day, because in this article we’re going to show you how to cleanse your colon with this simple (but extremely effective) 3-ingredient juice. And, it’s very simple! You just have to take a look at the article below and find out more about this. But first, I would like to say a few words about our digestive system and its main function. Well, first of all, you should know that our digestive system mostly consists of our large and small intestines. The large intestine is made up of a muscular tube called the colon, which; ‘absorbs water and salt from the remaining food matter after it goes through the small intestine’. The experts also say that our colon is a major contributor to the ‘storage and controlled evacuation of fecal material and digestion and absorption of undigested food,’ states Turnbull et al. And, considering the fact that the colon does so much for our digestive system, it is definitely a good idea to give it a clean out every now and again! Below are a few of the ingredients found in our detox recipe that will help with that colon cleanse!
- Ginger – Health Benefits:
First of all, you should know that ginger is a delicious, vibrant and healthy ingredient that as been used for centuries to treat all sorts of ailments; ‘such as colds, nausea, arthritis, migraines, and hypertension,’ states Bode and Dong. It makes for a perfect ingredient in our cleansing drink as it also ‘stimulates digestion, absorption, relieves constipation and flatulence by increasing muscular activity in the digestive tract. Yes, you can use ginger for almost everything, including our colon cleanse found below. You’ll be addicted to ginger after trying just one – you can trust me on that
- Lemon – Health Benefits:
We can easily say that lemon is one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. According to the experts, all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C and have excellent anti-oxidant properties plus many other incredible health benefits. Lemons, in particular, are an excellent digestive aid and when paired with warm water it can help your body by; ‘regulating stomach acids, promoting digestions, and providing remedies for disorders such as heartburn, bloating and acidity,’ states the European Journal of Pharmaceutical and Medical Research. Lemons are somewhat of a miracle fruit; they can do so much for your body and even clean your home!
- Apples – Health Benefits:
Fiber is awesome! Apples are loaded with fiber, which is essential for a healthy digestive system. Soluble fiber that is abundant in apples; ’can help lower blood cholesterol, slow the absorption of carbohydrate from foods, and help stabilize blood sugar levels. The experts also claim that ‘Fiber affects the rate of digestion of foods, the absorption of nutrients, and the movement of waste products (stool) through the colon. And, by adding organic, fresh apple juice to your cleanse your colon will be squeaky clean in no time. Who knew an apple a day could literally keep the doctor away!
