Bowel cleaning is a natural function of extraction of harmful and undigested substances and a very wise choice to make. Through this process you are getting rid of all the harmful substances in your organism and in the same time you’re maintaining your body balance.

The colon is the main organ through which you are getting rid of all the waste products. Many times this organ is burdened with a variety of toxins that build up along with the food decomposition, or are part of the highly processed foods that you are consuming.

High-fiber foods, especially fruits and vegetables, legumes, seeds and grains can help you cleanse the bowel by mechanical means. Namely the water soluble fibers bind water to themselves and that way they soften the stool, on the other hand the insoluble fibers are food for intestinal bacteria that can better process the waste and thus speed up bowel movements.

In addition to fiber, the fluid intake, especially water and natural squeezed juices diluted with water, can really benefit the excretion of the harmful substances. The probiotics are also worth mentioning. They play an important role in maintaining normal intestinal microflora which greatly affects the proper bowel movements.
