Natural Colon Cleanse – What’s Natural and What’s Not

by Mark Ament on February 12, 2010

Is trying a colon cleanse something you’re thinking about these days?  If so,   you’re probably researching your options to find out what’s available.   Of course an all natural colon cleanse is the best.

But as you may have already noticed, colon cleansing is a big business in the world of natural health and healing.  No doubt that there are a lot of different treatments and products out there to choose from.

I’ve looked into a lot of them and tried many myself and I want to tell you that not all of them work very well.   Some don’t work at al and a few even contain unsafe ingredients or combinations of ingredients.

In this article I’m going to give you some tips on how to make sure you avoid cleanses that don’t do what they are supposed to.

One way to tell colon cleansing products apart is to look at their ingredient lists.  And all natural colon cleanse product should contain only natural whole food and herb ingredients with names you can recognize.

Watch out for cleanses that contain the following.  There is no sense in purchasing them.

Apple pectin
Bentonite clay
Calcium carbonate
Carnauba wax
Dicalcium phosphate
Food glaze
High amalyse corn starch
Magnesium stearate
Natural Flavors
Polyethylene glycol
Potassium carbonate
Silicon dioxide
Titanium dioxide
Xantham gum

Here’s another thing for you to bear in mind.  Just because a cleanse contains only ingredients that you can pronounce, does not mean that it’s necessarily 100% natural. That’s because the herbs used in some cleanses may have been grown using chemical fertilizers and pesticides.  Worse yet, the herbs   may have been irradiated, a harsh process that leaves them entirely worthless for cleansing.

When you are considering a cleanse make sure to ask if all the ingredients are certified organic or wild crafted, non-GMO, and non-irradiated.

In the end the best way to make sure you get an all natural colon cleanse is to make it yourself.  Here are  3 top colon cleansing recipes that are easy to make and proven to get great results. You can get access on by clicking the highlighted text.
