Natural Colon Cleanse - How To Know What's Natural and What's Not In a Colon Cleanse

Are you thinking about trying a colon cleanse? If so you're probably researching your options to find out what's available. As you may have already noticed, colon cleansing is a big business in the natural health field. And there are a lot of different treatments and products out there to choose from. Not all of them work very well and some don't work at all. 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 aren't 100% natural and don't give very good results. One of the easiest ways to tell colon cleansing products apart is to look carefullly at their ingredient lists. All natural colon cleanse products should contain only natural whole food and herb ingredients. These are ingredients with names you should be able to recognize. If Ican't pronounce it - I don't buy it. Watch out for cleanses that contain the following. There is no sense in purchasing them since they are likely to do more harm than good. Apple pectin Bentonite clay Calcium carbonate Carnauba wax Dicalcium phosphate Food glaze Fructose Gelatin High amalyse corn starch Inolin Magnesium stearate Methylcellulose Natural Flavors Polyethylene glycol Potassium carbonate Silicon dioxide Titanium dioxide Xantham gum Fish Milk Wheat Soy Here's another thing for you to keep in mind. Just because a cleanse contains only ingredients that you can pronounce, does not mean that it's 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 powerless. When you are considering a cleanse ask if the ingredients are certified organic or wild crafted, non-GMO, and non-irradiated. If the retailer can't tell you, move on to a different product. In the end, you'll be glad you did.
