Constipation is defined as having infrequent bowel movements with stools that are typically hard, dry and difficult to eliminate. Side effects may include abdominal pain and bloating. If not addressed and treated properly, constipation can often lead to more serious health problems. For example, it slows down food transit time, allowing putrefied material to remain in the colon longer and toxins to enter the bloodstream through the intestinal wall. This can lead to auto-intoxication, which can cause everything from headaches to immune disorders.Ordinarily, a combination of factors ultimately result in constipation. these include poor diet and nutrtition (too many processed foods and sugar), lack of dietary fiber, lack of essential fatty acids, lack of exercise, dehydration of the colon, medications (both prescription and over-the- counter), changes in daily routine, and not setting aside time to eliminate regularly.Follow this easy 4 step approach to achieve 2-3 healthy bowel movements each day:
- Hydrate the Colon: By properly hydrating the colon, you will promote regular peristalsis (the natural muscle contractions that move food through your intestines). Drink plenty of water and use hydrating minerals such as magnesium hydroxide and gentle (laxative) herbs such as cape aloe and rhubarb to assist with natural bowel movements. CleanseSmart supports the body’s natural detoxification process, promotes regular, healthy elimination.
- Add Bulk with FiberSmart Organic flax fiber with added ingredients for healthy bowel function. Contains probiotics, FOS and l-glutamine.
- Lubricate with OilSmart: To achieve a healthy elimination schedule, it is critical to keep the colon lubricated. Beneficial oils such as fish oil, flax oil and borage oil are very effective in providing the necessary lubrication for smooth and gentle elimination.
- Maintain with CleanseMore and probiotics: Once you have achieved healthy bowel function, maintain it with a natural herbal and mineral formula that offers relief for occasional constipation and a daily probiotic that maintains a healthy balance of intestinal flora.
