Colon cleansing is fast becoming a very popular therapy to combat digestive problems and to avoid weight gain. It is a means of improving your general health.
The colon is a part of your large intestine. It absorbs water and stores your body’s waste products until they are excreted. Your colon is responsible for maintaining the electrolyte and water balance of the body.
Healthy Bowel Movements
It is usual for many healthy people to have one or two bowel movements every 24 hours.
Most bowel movements will have a brown or green color. An adult may have from five to forty pounds of compacted waste in their bowels. Your feces (excreted matter) should be mostly solid.
You should not strain or experience any serious straining when excreting. Frequent straining and exertion in excretion may cause improper or incomplete removal of waste materials from your body.
