Health Plus - Colon Cleanse The Original High Fiber - 6 oz. (170g)
Health Plus Colon Cleanse The Original High Fiber was created in 1981 and remains the original psyllium husk supplement. Enjoy the benefits of Colon Cleanse made from 100% Psyllium Husk! Psyllium husk is a soluble fiber. Soluble fiber reacts by absorbing water in the intestine creating a gel substance. During this reaction Colon Cleanse aids in: a healthy digestive system, heart health, weight management, regularity, and detoxification of the colon.
Colon Cleanse has been the #1 product in its class for over 3 decades.
Benefits of Colon Cleanse include:
- Each serving supplies 24% daily value of fiber
- Maintains a healthy heart
- Doctor Recommended
- Naturally absorbs toxins in the colon
- Cleanses the lining of the intestine
- Mixes well with water or juice
- Maintains regularity
- All natural, no fillers or binders
The body's first line of defense is a healthy colon. However, our internal detoxification process can break down from: overexposure to environmental pollutants in our air, food and water, poor diet, lack of adequate fiber, excessive alcohol and caffeine, high stress, lack of exercise, overuse of anti-biotics and prescription medications. This produces a state of toxicity and COLON CLEANSE then becomes one of the most important steps in detoxification.
Soluble fiber from foods such as Psylluim Husk, as a part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Colon Cleanse supplies 5 grams of the 7 grams of soluble fiber from Psyllium Husk necessary per day to have this effect.
The recommended daily value for dietary fiber is 25 g although some physicians may recommend more. Each serving from Colon Cleanse Regular powder supplies 6 g of dietary fiber which equals to 24% of the daily value.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are your product capsules made from vegetable or animals?
The capsules for all Health Plus Products are bovine based. This means they come from cattle, calf and cows, unless otherwise stated on the bottle.
Can Colon Cleanse be taken if pregnant or breast feeding?
Psyllium should be mixed with at least 8 ounces of water, juice or your favorite beverage. Please drink quickly because of the immediate thickening action. Drinking eight to ten glasses of water throughout the day is recommended, because water naturally helps your system flush out the toxins and waste that build up throughout the day. Eating this product without enough liquid may cause choking. Do not take this product if you have trouble swallowing.
Can I take Colon Cleanse on a empty stomach?
Since Colon Cleanse is a soluble fiber, you may take it any time you wish even on an empty stomach.
Can I take medication with Colon Cleanse?
There are no known contraindications. However, there is some speculation about pills possibly binding to the psyllium and preventing them from breaking down properly. It is a good idea to take your medication at least one hour before or after consuming Colon Cleanse. Check with your pharmacist or physician about possible interactions with psyllium.
Do I have to wait to eat if I just took Colon Cleanse?
No, you do not have to wait. Because Colon Cleanse is a soluble fiber and swells up in your stomach it has the effect of making you feel less hungry if taken about an hour before meals. So unless you are trying to eat less, take it after meals.
Do I take Colon Cleanse with food?
You may take the Colon Cleanse anytime you wish, even on an empty stomach. Our recommendation is that you take Colon Cleanse at least one hour before or after meals. Colon Cleanse works by forming a gel-like substance in your stomach, which absorbs all the waste in your system as it passes though your small intestine and colon, before finally being eliminated.
Does the soluble fiber from COLON CLEANSE regulate cholesterol?
Cholesterol attaches itself to fiber and is carried out of the body with solid waste matter, so soluble fiber from foods such as Psyllium Husk, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Colon Cleanse® supplies 5 of the 7 grams of soluble fiber necessary per day to have this effect.
How does Colon Cleanse clean the colon?
Colon Cleanse is made of 100% psyllium husk. Psyllium helps to absorb toxins in the colon by creating a spongy, gelatinous mass in the bowels. By swelling and absorbing fluids, it breaks down and moves waste matter stuck in the folds and crevices of the colon. A clean colon inhibits bacteria from surviving on human waste. Psyllium husk soothes the lining of the bowel and leaves a thin slippery film along the inner lining of the colon, which makes it easier for waste generated later to move along smoothly.
How long will it take before Colon Cleans begins working?
It is very difficult to specify a time period in which Colon Cleanse begins working. Most people will see results within 24 to 72 hours, as long as directions are followed. It may take longer, especially for first time users, since their systems are not used to the amount of fiber that is in Colon Cleanse.
How much Colon Cleanse can be taken daily?
Depending on the individual, as little as one teaspoon a day can promote regularity. One tablespoon up to three times daily is the maximum dose. However, there may not be results for three or more days. Psyllium is an excellent source of fiber, puts no strain on nerve reflexes, does not damage bowel tone and is safe for long-term use.
Is the Psyllium in COLON CLEANSER a fiber from wheat grain?
Psyllium is a fiber grain, but however it is not related to wheat. Psyllium is a natural bulking agent that yields 60 to 70 percent soluble fiber, eight times that of oat bran. Psyllium expands 50-60 times in the stomach to provide this bulk or "roughage."
Is there an appropriate diet for Colon Cleanse?
Common sense about eating healthy foods is always recommended. Please drink plenty of fluids, and continue your normal healthy diet.
What are the common side effects of Colon Cleanse?
Some of the side effects of Colon Cleanse are gas and bloating. These usually occur with first time users because their systems may not be used to the amount of fiber that is in Colon Cleanse. In this situation we recommend that you cut the dosage in half and slowly increase to the recommended dosage over a period of a few weeks.
What can else can I do if I don’t want to take any colon cleanse product?
Drink plenty of water, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, which naturally contain fiber, antioxidants and some enzymes (such as papain from papaya). In addition, sometimes stress causes digestive insufficiency, so learning how to manage stress levels will greatly help prevent digestive disturbances. Eat slowly; don't cram your mouth with food, don't gulp down your food. Chewing slowly releases specific enzymes in saliva that start to break down the food. Finally, eat only until you are satisfied; don't eat until you are full, which stresses the bloated stomach to work overtime in processing its load.
What is the soluble fiber in COLON CLEANSE?
The husk is mostly composed of a soluble fiber called hemicellulose. The soluble fiber adds bulk to the stomach and absorbs fluids to form a gel-like substance that stimulates the rhythmic muscular contractions in the colon that are responsible for the evacuation process.
Why is fiber so important?
Fiber is essential for intestinal health for many reasons. It keeps the digestive tract from getting clogged up with mucus, toxins and metabolic waste; keeps the colon clean and waste matter moving; and feeds and maintains a healthy intestinal flora.
Will I get diarrhea from Colon Cleanse?
No, Colon Cleanse is not likely to result in diarrhea. In fact, psyllium husk is known to help in cases of diarrhea by absorbing excess intestinal fluids and providing bulk to the stool.
