Your colon is an important part of your body. It controls the proper disposal of feces and conserves water and electrolytes. Research showed that the health of your colon has a direct impact on your body’s overall metabolism. An unhealthy colon can lead to conditions such as colon cancer.
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancer diagnosis, according to the American Cancer Society. Unhealthy diets and lifestyle can contribute to unhealthy colons and colon cancer.
In an online cancer risk assessment conducted by Cleveland Clinic which included over 27,000 responses, the results showed that less than 10% of the participants were eating the daily recommended amount of fruit, vegetables, and grains, which are all needed by the body to clean out the colon.
Finding the healthiest solutions to clean out your colon can be tough. However, there is one home remedy that may be able to help. It consists of four ingredients: 2 tablespoons of Aloe Gel, one lemon, honey, and 1 liter of water.
The founder of the Global Healing Center named Dr. Edward Group III explains that lemons help with digestion. The colon is the final part of digestion and the pectin (a type of fiber) content of lemon makes it beneficial to a healthy colon and proper digestion. Pectin is responsible for slowing down the speed of food that leaves the stomach and improves how it is broken down.
Found in aloe gel is barbaloin, a C-glucoside of aloe-emodin anthrone, which can help stimulate bowel movements and increase its tone. For many years, aloe vera has been used in medicine and is mostly known for its healing abilities on cuts and burns and can also be used as a laxative.
Honey is one of the bests options for weight loss. Many people who do a colon cleanse often lose weight mainly because they were able to clear out wastes from their intestines, according to Livestrong.
As toxins are considered to be the unused junk that is leftover, your body needs to remove it through sweating, urine, and stool. Your body must be well-hydrated for your kidneys to work efficiently and to be able to remove these toxins. Failure to do this can have a negative effect on your body’s bowel functions. A healthy colon needs regular bowel movements so it can remove waste and not leave any excess toxins.
How To Prepare The Mixture
First, you need to squeeze the lemon into a bowl, add 2 tablespoons of fresh Aloe Vera gel and mix it well. Once you’ve thoroughly mixed the two together, add the one liter of water and mix everything in a blender. Add a bit of honey to sweeten the mix.
Take a glass of this mixture first thing in the morning to help clean out your colon. If you want to speed up the process, drink the mixture 30 minutes before each main meal.
