Herbs for colon cleansing: which are the best?

Colon cleansing herbs can be divided into 2 basic categories: First, there are herbs that help remove debris, such as mucoid plaque, from the colon. Second, there are fiber-rich herbs that help the colon move.

Colon Cleansing Herbs

Burdock root: It is also to blood cleanser that relieves gout symptoms. Burdock root powder helps restore colon, liver, and gallbladder function and stimulates the immune system. It is considered one of the lesser colon cleansing herbs.

Cascara sagrada bark: Commonly used by Native Americans, it is the best herb known for softening and removing mucoid plaque in both the small and large intestines. Mucoid plaque is the dark gummy substance that can line the digestive tract if too much fried and processed foods are eaten (almost everyone has it).

Plantain leaf: Cleanses the colon and helps remove intestinal plaque. It is a great blood purifier and supports kidney function.

Rhubarb root: It has antibiotic properties. Relieves diarrhea, constipation, and hemorrhoids. Promotes ulcer healing and supports colon healing.

Senna Leaf: it is the most reliable herb to stimulate the intestine. However, it is very powerful and must be used with care in small amounts. In general, I recommend that people avoid using this herb, as cascara sagrada does a similar job more safely.

Red Elm Bark: Reduces inflammation in the colon, stomach, and urinary tract. It also reduces diarrhea.

Wormwood Bark Powder: Improves digestion by increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes and bile from the liver and gallbladder. This herb also works well to eliminate toxins and congestion in the intestine. It also helps in the elimination of parasites.

Yellow duck; The leaves and roots are a good cleanser for the liver and colon. It works as a blood purifier. Tones the entire digestive system.

Herbs that provide fiber to stimulate the colon

These supplements create volume within the intestines, absorb toxins from them, and help the colon move.

Flax seed powder: ground flax seeds are very rich in fiber (27 g per 100 g)

Carob powder: high in dietary fiber (38 g per 100 g) and soothing to digestion. The carob is rich in tannins that exert an astringent or binding effect on the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract. It can also prevent diarrhea.

Psyllium seed husk powder: This is the most common fiber supplement in herbal cleanses. When mixed with water, psyllium husk powder turns gelatinous and provides volume to the intestines. Nnte: do not confuse this with whole psyllium seed which is almost useless in a cleansing program. The fiber content of psyllium is 80 g per 100 g.

Advantages of knowing your colon cleansing herbs

There are several benefits to knowing your herbs and how to take them. First of all, many inexpensive herbal colon cleanses on the market contain unnecessary fillers as well as low-quality herbs. Taking low-quality herbs can also be harmful. There are 3 main problems with taking these types of herbs:

  • They have been grown as cheaply as possible and contain herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and fumigants.
  • They have been irradiated. That means that they have been exposed to high levels of radiation that sterilizes them and makes them almost useless for health.
  • They contain the whole plant instead of just the medicinal part. Burdock root, for example, is a great blood cleanser. But some formulations called “burdock root” also contain leaves and stems of the plant that do not clean the blood.

If you know your herbs, you are not dependent on a pre-made kit that may contain low-quality ingredients. The second big benefit of knowing what herbs is that you can create your own colon cleansing recipes at a fraction of the cost of buying a store-bought kit.

I used several of the colon cleansing herbs mentioned above to create my latest colon cleansing recipe. It performed better than the store bought cleaners I used to use and it only cost me $ 14 for 15 days of cleaning.
