You will be surprised to find out the amount of waste stuck in your colon. If you get rid you’ll probably drop more than 5 pounds.
But the waste build up doesn’t just make you heavier – it hinders absorption of nutrients and ruins the gut bacteria. This consequently hinders weight loss and negatively affects overall health.
Well, here are 7 remedies to help cleanse your colon, drop pounds and improve overall health.
Prune juice cleanse
Prune juice has high amounts of fiber. It will help clear the colon and even reduce constipation.
Drink one glass in the morning and another in the evening. This will clear your colon and increase bowel movement frequency.
Use the apple cider vinegar cleanse
ACV has been used for years to boost digestion. Here’s how to make this cleanse: Simplly add two tablespoons of ACV and two tablespoons of raw honey to 8 ounces of warm water, stir and enjoy.
Drink lemon juice every morning
Lemon juice contains vitamin C. And research shows that this vitamin plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy colon. Additionally, lemon boosts metabolism and helps the body get rid of toxins. Lemon water is best when drank warm.
Drink enough water
Not drinking enough water can lead to build up in the colon. Unfortunately, most people are dehydrated.
Drink more water to enable waste to move through the colon smoothly. Aim to drink 2 to 3 liters of water a day.
Add probiotics to your diet
Probiotics are the healthy gut bacteria. They control bad bacteria which can cause blockage and build up in the colon. You can get them naturally from these foods.
Eat more fiber
Prunes won’t give you enough fiber content. Here are other high fiber foods you should include in your diet: Avocado, okra, figs, coconuts, and other veggies and fruits.
Drink ginger tea
Ginger improves digestion and bowel movement. Making ginger tea is one of the best ways to consume it. To make ginger tea simply mix two teaspoons of grated ginger with quarter cup of turmeric and 5 cups of spring water then boil for 10 minutes.
