The role of the digestive system is crucial for our overall health, so if you cleanse it from the accumulated toxins, you will significantly improve its function.
This system mainly consists of small and large intestines.
The large intestine is made up of the colon, which is a muscular tube that ‘absorbs water and salt from the remaining food matter after it goes through the small intestine’.
As explained by the Turnbull et al, it is in charge of the ‘storage and controlled evacuation of fecal material and digestion and absorption of undigested food’.
Therefore, if you detoxify the colon you will help the entire digestive system, and enjoy numerous benefits! Today, we will reveal a natural method to cleanse the colon, by consuming three fresh juices, apple, lemon, and ginger juice.
Apples are high in fiber, which helps digestion. Moreover, according to the Cornell University, apples are also rich in soluble fiber which ‘can help lower blood cholesterol, slow the absorption of carbohydrate from foods, and help stabilize blood sugar levels.
Fiber affects the rate of digestion of foods, the absorption of nutrients, and the movement of waste products (stool) through the colon.’
All citrus fruits are rich sources of vitamin C and have potent antioxidant properties. Lemons aid digestion, especially when consumed with warm water.
Also, the European Journal of Pharmaceutical and Medical Research adds that lemon juice is also excellent in ‘regulating stomach acids, promoting digestions, and providing remedies for disorders such as heartburn, bloating and acidity.’
