Ingredients in Colon Cleansing

With so many colon cleansers on the market, it can be difficult to know what ingredients are the most effective and which colon cleanser most suits your needs. The common factor you should look for in any colon cleanse product is natural ingredients. Unnatural ingredients can be harmful and may not perform as claimed. Many different herbs, spices and plants can be useful for cleansing your colon. Here's a look at the most popular ingredients known today.

Two of the most common ingredients in colon cleansing products are Bentonite clay and psyllium husk, both natural ingredients. Bentonite clay, also known as edible volcanic ash, acts like a laxative during a colon cleanse and attaches itself to free radicals, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria and toxic matter and facilitates their elimination from the colon. It can bring bacterial balance back to your system. Bentonite clay can also improve liver function and digestion. Psyllium husk is a non-soluble, plant fiber and helps move waste through your body. When mixed with water, psyllium husk forms a gel that passes through your digestive tract and pulls toxins from your system, also binding with fats and removing them as well. Remember to drink plenty of water with both Bensonite and psyllium husk to replace water lost in the cleansing process.

Many other colon cleansing ingredients exist and are used for various reasons in addition to cleansing the colon. For cleansing the colon due to constipation, several different ingredients are used. Terminalia chebula or triphala (Ayurvediic compound) work well. Other natural ingredients include flax seed and Cascara Sagrada.

If weight loss is the goal for colon cleansing, garcinia and hoodia are good herbs to use. They not only cleanse the colon, but have natural fat reducing properties as well.

Digestive system ailments such as indigestion, flatulence, and cramps, can be cured with colon cleansers containing herbs such as ginger, garlic, cinnamon, fennel, coriander leaves, cumin seeds and asafetida. These spices and herbs possess natural enzymes that aid in digestion and encourage bowel movement.

Some herbs for colon cleansing even help flush out parasites and worms. Usually found in the form of colon cleansing pills, the ingredients include Blutea Superba, Piper Longum, and embilica ribes. Also worth noting are black walnut oil, cloves and wormwood.

While the ingredients above are the most common herbs found in colon cleansers, there are many others worth mentioning. Other effective ingredients include the following: Rhubabr powder, buckthorn powder, licorine powder, licorice root, ozonated Magnesium Oxide, natural citric acid, organic germanium-132, probiotics, Yebra mate, mint, aloe leaf, barberry root, black radish root, Chinese rhubarb stem, thyme oil powder, organic cloves, Echinacea, and goldenseal extract.

As a general rule, it's best to use a colon cleanser that contains several ingredients. Often, if one herb has a side effect, other herbs can offset it. Taking any of these herbs directly, just for the purpose of cleaning your colon, could be harmful and you might suffer undesirable side effects. A good way to ensure that you choose the right colon cleanser is to select one that has already received good product reviews. You can then find a colon cleanser that is the most effective for your needs.
