4. Avocados

One great tasting food that will help with both digestion and detoxification is avocado. Rich in both soluble and insoluble fibers, these compounds will encourage healthy bowel movements and cleansing the colon. Fiber effectively reduces your overall risk of developing cancer of the colon. The soluble fiber content absorbs water and binds with other substances in the colon to help keep things moving along.


5.  Dark Leafy Greens

To help cleanse the colon and protect your digestive tract, you need to consume plenty of green leafy vegetables, such as kale and spinach. Fat soluble chlorophyll will stick to the lining of the colon wall and arrests the growth of bacteria, removes bacteria that has accumulated and multiplied in the colon, as well as healing the mucus lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Other leafy greens you can consume are cabbage, green olives, collard greens, celery, peas, and Swiss chard. All of these leafy greens are super high in chlorophyll, which will cleanse the colon and help to detoxify your liver at the same time.


6. Fermented Foods

Your digestive system is made up of a vast network of beneficial bacteria that performs many tasks including the digestion of food, the balancing of bacteria, the absorption of nutrients, and the removal of waste and toxins, to name a few. When the bacterial balance of your digestive system is thrown out of whack, the health of the entire body can suffer. More than 80 percent of your immune system lies in your gut, so when your gut flora is not balanced, your immune system does not work properly.

To help offset this imbalance, be certain that you eat plenty of fermented foods, such as Greek yogurt, kombucha, pickles, sauerkraut, tempeh, and kimchi. These are all super rich probiotic foods that will help to keep your entire digestive system, including your colon, in a healthy balance.

    the only way to flush one`s body is to stop eating whatever is toxifying it. the colon is one part of the body that was not meant to be clean. why do you think we gotta go through so much crap (pardon the pun) when we have colonoscopys? GEEZ you guys.

    Colon cleansing is a great way to help improve your body’s overall
    health and wellness, and can even reduce your risks for colon
    cancer. Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of
    colon build up can lead to feelings of lightness, strength and overall
    good health.I use bowtrol for cleansing my colon.
