7 Day Bowel Cleanse is a colon cleansing formula comprised of a mixture of 3 organic fibres and herbal ingredients. It helps to remove toxins as well as old, hardened fecal matter (which can be difficult to remove) from the colon.
7 Day Bowel Cleanse works to cleanse the colon in three ways:
7 Day Bowel Cleanse provides fibre, which helps to cleanse the colon. There are two main types of fibre; soluble fibre and insoluble fibre:
Insoluble fibre has a cleansing effect (like a scrub brush) removing toxins and old hardened material from the intestinal wall by scraping them off as it passes by. It also works to tone the bowel.
Soluble fibre works by absorbing toxins (similar to a sponge), soaking up toxins as it passes.
Both of these fibre types are required to effectively cleanse the colon. 7 Day Bowel Cleanse contains a combination of flaxseed, oat bran, and acacia gum which provide a blend of soluble and insoluble fibre similar to what is found naturally in food.
PLEASE NOTE: This is different from most colon cleanses which are psyllium based. Psyllium is a highly soluble fibre, which can be constipating for some people. Also, as it has little insoluble fibre, it is unable to remove hardened material effectively from the colon walls.
7 Day Bowel Cleanse works to stimulate peristalsis in the colon. Peristalsis is the colon’s natural muscular movement, which moves material out of the colon. This is extremely important in colon cleansing. 7 Day Bowel Cleanse includes the peristalsis herb rhubarb. Rhubarb is better than laxative herbs such as cascara sagrada or senna which are purgative herbs. These purgative herbs can be addictive over time. Further, they tend to remove food that is currently being ingested, versus removing hardened matter.
7 Day Bowel Cleanse works to soothe and reduce inflammation of the colon. If you have had material in your colon for a long period of time, chances are it has destroyed the intestinal lining to some degree. Therefore, soothing the area and reducing inflammation of the intestinal lining is important.
