Benefits of Colon Cleansing A primary function of the colon is to push undigested waste through the body to clear the way for healthy nutrient absorption. Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract much more slowly than high-fiber foods — in fact, the average colon can hold the equivalent of up to eight meals worth of food before digestion occurs. Buildup of uneliminated waste can cause bloating, occasional constipation, and feelings of lethargy. The psyllium seed husk, senna leaf, and buckthorn bark in NatureWise Total Colon 10-Day Rapid Cleanse naturally encourages the elimination of waste from the body, to help restore energy levels, alleviate bloating and occasional constipation, and promote health in the intestines and digestive organs.* A Unique Blend of Botanicals for Added Support Gastrointestinal issues and irregularity are common problems. Conditions like constipation increase the amount of time that waste comes in contact with the cells lining the intestinal tract, while diarrhea can prevent nutrients from being assimilated. Both issues can lead to discomfort and irritation of mucosal membranes lining the intestines. We’ve added a unique blend of botanicals to NatureWise Total Colon Care 10-Day Rapid Cleanse comprised of licorice root, ginger root, fennel seed, milk thistle, goldenseal, and yellow dock for added digestive support and to soothe irritated mucosal membranes. The fructooligosaccharides in our formula act as prebiotics to help promote the growth of beneficial bacteria needed for a good balance of flora in the lower digestive tract.* Colon Cleansing and Weight Management Colon cleansing is not recommended for long-term continuous use, nor is it intended as a weight-loss product. However, many people do experience some weight-related benefit from short-term, occasional use. Colon cleansing encourages the elimination of waste, which may result in the shedding of excess pounds.* Although any weight-related benefit is usually temporary, a healthy colon facilitates the absorption of more nutrients from less food. Detoxifying the colon to optimize digestion can be a beneficial process for many diet and weight management plans.* Delayed Release for Maximum Benefits For a product like a colon cleanse to be beneficial, the capsule’s ingredients must first survive the acidic journey through the stomach to the lower GI tract. This requires a different sort of encapsulation than traditional methods, which start to degrade in just a few minutes. NatureWise Total Colon Care 10-Day Rapid Cleanse uses DRcaps because they have been proven in human studies to effectively safeguard ingredients. These specialized delayed release capsules help protect the capsule’s contents from stomach acidity to deliver maximum benefits to the lower GI tract.* Due to the higher cost of manufacturing with delayed release capsules, many brands choose inferior encapsulations, which can allow stomach acids to destroy the capsule before contents reach the colon. Older delayed release methods can involve heat, which may negatively impact ingredients, or the use of chemicals and solvents. The DRcaps used in NatureWise Total Colon Care 10-Day Rapid Cleanse are not only effective, they are vegetarian and derived from a plant-based polymer. It’s part of the NatureWise commitment to quality and safety. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
