The colon is one of the most important organs in the body because it regulates the immune system, aids the digestion process, and maintains water balance in the body. Therefore, when the colon isn’t functioning 100%, toxic waste begins piling up in the body, instead of being disposed adequately.
During our life, more than 30,000 liters of liquid pass through the intestines, with additional 100 tons of different types of foods. That is, the intestines contain more than 30 pounds of toxic waste and fecal deposits.
These toxins enter the blood and they can cause irreparable damage. Some of the most common symptoms of a toxic colon are constipation, excessive weight, kidney and liver diseases, diabetes, problems with the skin, nails, and hair, arthritis, cancer, disrupted metabolism, etc.
In order to remove all these toxins from the colon, you should consume 1 to 3 tbsp of flaxseed flour for 3 weeks. Flaxseed encourages the cleansing, but it also preserves the intestinal microflora.
How to do the cleanse
- 350 ml of kefir
- Organic flaxseed meal
Use: During the first week, you need to mix 100 ml of kefir with 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal and drink it, during the second week you should mix 100 ml of kefir with 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal, and during the third week, you need to drink a mixture of 150 ml of kefir and 3 tbsp of flaxseed meal.
Don’t forget to drink a lot of water during this treatment. This method shouldn’t be performed more than once per year.
Because they’re a rich source of fiber- crucial for a healthy digestion. Fiber has a positive effect on the gut as well. Flaxseeds are rich in soluble and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the contents of the intestines. Hence, this bulk betters the bowel movement and thus, aids the elimination of the waste. Moreover, soluble fiber absorbs water in the intestine and stomach and forms a gel. This gel slows down the digestion and contributes to easier absorption of food nutrients.
Since flaxseeds increase the satiety, you will also lose surplus weight in a healthy way. Flaxseeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that reduce the inflammation in the digestive system and prevent constipation. Flaxseeds can also decrease the high level of bad cholesterol, and thus, reduce the chances of cardiovascular illnesses.
