Some supplements are great for weight lifters. And then they are some supplements that are great for literally every human being on the planet- this being one of them. Over the last few weeks, I have received a ton of questions regarding this product, usage, etc and since there are so many “detox” teas and crap products on the market- I knew I needed to write a blog on this product. Roughly 70% of your health comes from your gut- the healthier your gut- the healthier you are. If you find yourself bloated, sick, tired, or all of the above- you should look to healing your gut. We know this product can help with that.

This product is a great addition to the fiber and probiotics that we offer! This does not replace either of these products, it is a wonderful addition to your daily supplement regimen. If you would like a further explanation on either fiber or probiotics, I highly recommend clicking on the respective link for further readings
Think of your gut / intestinal tract like a water slide (bear with me). If you do not weigh enough, you will not make it down the water slide or it will take FOREVER. If you’re not catching drift- you are your poop in this analogy. Adding fiber will weigh you down and get you down the water slide without backing everyone else up. That being said- TOO much fiber can make you too heavy and cause even worse constipation. The general rule of thumb for fiber is 14g for every 1000 calories you are eating. Probiotics will make the people on the raft on the water slide different (aka better) and get you down the slide fastest with the healthiest route possible. The new colon cleanse product will push more water down the slide and will also help heal patches that are leaking water on the slide.
Is this an everyday product?
Yes- it is an everyday product. Every person is different and will need different durations based on their gut and their health. I recommend 2 pills in the morning and 2 in the evening for at least 2 weeks. Assess your bathroom visits, bloat, etc. If you feel that you become consistent with bathroom visits, you can reduce to 2 pills a day. I do recommend this product for daily use if you do not plan to change diet habits (as those are what caused the unhealthy gut in the first place). There is also no harm in taking 4 pills every single day as these are not laxatives and you will not become dependent on them. I do recommend, as always, to drink at least a gallon of water a day with them.
I also want to mention that laxatives are not the sustainable answer if you are bloated or constipated. Long-term laxative use can program your colon’s peristaltic mechanism (contractions of the intestinal wall) to turn off- this can also damage bowel nerves and your bowel tissues. It is best to figure out the cause of your constipation and fix/heal it the right way. Some common causes of constipation are medications, dehydration, poor diet, stress, trauma, mineral and nutrient deficiency, imbalance in gut flora, etc
Now that we have the high-level stuff out of the way, I want to dive more into some of the nitty-gritty details if you are interested. If I have answered all of your questions, you can order here.
This is not just a poop pill. We have ingredients in the colon cleanse product that will help repair your colon / intestines as well. For example, magnesium hydroxide (also known as milk of magnesia) is considered to be the more gentle colon cleanser (and it’s cramp-free). Milk thistle removes precursors of free radicals through 3 antioxidant enzymes (catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase) in addition to metal-binding proteins such as myoglobin, ferritin, etc.
This product is also extremely different than the “detox” teas (aka the poop teas IG models promote). Our bodies have built-in processes to detoxify naturally, six of them to be exact!
Our liver is the workhouse of the detox process and is tasked with breaking down toxins (from inside and outside our bodies) and help them to safely exit the body. Your kidneys help flush water-soluble waste out via urine and your colon escorts toxins and waste matter out via feces. Even your sweat can help release toxins stored in body fat. The problem is that we are all exposed to more toxins than our detox systems can handle and we take in toxins faster than we are able to get rid of them. In short, our buckets are overflowing and the result is chronic health issues.
Our colon cleanse product is a great way to support your body’s natural cleansing and detoxifying processes. It also will not cause dependency if you choose to stop taking them. We truly believe in this product and our reviews can speak for themselves!
