10 Fantastic Herbs
for Colon Health
There are many herbs for colon cleansing and colon health in general.
You can generally mix herbs together however you like.
I do recommend that you get in touch with a herbalist or someone who is familiar with how herbs work if you want to concoct a special mix for your needs.
Herbs can be used for colon cleansing, parasite cleansing, liver cleansing and many other cleanses.
They can promote detoxification and aid the body in eliminating unwanted parasites, substances or poisons from our body.
Before modern medicine there were herbs. Herbs are powerful when used in the right ways and are often safer than pharmaceutical drugs.
We do still have to be careful with them. Some herbs are extremely strong and can in high doses cause trouble.
If you're just looking for a good herbal colon cleansing product then I recommend you check out Blessed Herbs. They have a high quality company and product.
Let's look at some herbs and their function...
- Aloe Vera
A very common herb and you'll see this one on the shelves of health food stores. Aloe vera acts as a natural laxative, and it also relieves bowel irritation and constipation.
- Barberry Bark
Used traditionally against diarrhea. It is also used against fever, anemia, infections, allergies, high blood pressure and some neuronal disorders.
- Cascara Sagrada
One of the most popular colon cleansing ingredients used in today's colon cleansers. It acts as a laxative and relieves constipation when taken at a safe dosage. It is not recommended that you take it for more than seven days in a row.
- Chinese Rhubarb
Used to relieve constipation without causing excessive cramping. It also stops diarrhea by relieving irritation in the gut.
- Dandelion Root
Acts as a laxative, improves appetite and digestion. It also supports liver function, stimulates bile flow and helps the body release toxins.
- Fennel Seed
Traditionally used as a digestive aid. It has also been shown to relieve intestinal spasms, gas and cramping.
- Fenugreek Seed
A mild, and soothing herb that promotes normal bowel activity by improving digestion.
- Slippery Elm
Neutralizes stomach acids, soothes ulcers by providing a protective barrier between the ulcer and stomach acid.
A strong laxative, it works quickly and is usually taken as a tea. Be careful with this one because people have reported feeling nauseous when taking it.
- Psyllium Husk
Psyllium husk is probably the ingredient you've heard most about in colon cleanse products. It is used in colon cleansing because of its ability to relieve constipation, soothe diarrhea, absorb toxins and strengthen the intestinal lining.
Like I mentioned above, there are a lot of herbs for colon health out there. I personally prefer using a herbal colon cleanse where a professional herbalist has put it all together to ensure effectiveness and safety.
That's why I recommended Blessed Herbs to you earlier. They have one of the best programs out there.
