Some colon cleansers come in powder form that you add to juice.
Benefits of a colon cleanse can include helping with constipation, getting relief from bloating and gas, increasing energy levels and enhancing absorption of nutrients. Most over-the-counter colon cleansers come with detailed instructions, and some include diet suggestions. A colon cleanse can last from three to 10 days, depending on the brand. Colon cleansers come in several forms, including powder which you add to juice or water, or capsules taken several times a day with a large glass of water. Some colon cleansers include diet suggestions, which can range from a seven-day fast, to eating fresh fruit and vegetables and avoiding processed foods. It is important to drink at least eight glasses of water a day while on a colon cleanse. This will help flush out your system and make your cleanse more effective. Colon cleansers can be found in most local health stores and drugstores.
