Feeling bloated on Monday after a heavy-indulging weekend is quite normal. But, if the bloated-feeling continues for the next few days, the reason could be your colon is not sufficiently flushing out and there might be pounds of waste stuck inside it.
A healthy colon signifies a healthy gut, which ultimately signifies an active digestive system. Cleansing or detoxifying the colon is possibly the best way to remove toxin waste from your gut and improve your digestive system.
While our body is equipped with all the necessary tools to detoxify themselves, few external forces, such as junk food, alcohol, stress, and medications can slow the process.
But you can boost the process by trying some home-based remedies. Today we are going to share one such remedy that is natural, simple, easy, and requires just two miracle ingredients.
Remember that the drink made out of these ingredients will not directly cleanse the colon but improve the detoxification system by helping your body filter waste and toxins effectively. The ingredients are also known to regulate good and bad gut bacteria efficiently.
So, what are the miracle ingredients that can clean colon easily?
Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey.
Simple, isn’t it? Both these ingredients are common in every kitchen and do not require to spend money in order to buy them.
Colon Cleansers: Unprocessed, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey
You Require: –
- A glass of warm water
- Two tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (raw)
- Two tablespoons Honey (unprocessed)
- Add honey and apple cider vinegar to the glass of water.
- Stir the mixture until the honey dissolves.
- Drink the solution first thing in the morning.
Drink it when the water is still warm. Make sure the water is not boiling hot. Hot water may kill the good bacteria present inside the ingredients.
Why Unprocessed Honey?
We all know that unprocessed honey has several health benefits including the ability to cleanse toxins from your colon, according to the Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology’s research statement.
Eugenol is one of the active ingredients found in honey. Eugenol is a phenolic compound that has the ability to prevent tumors from developing.
The researchers found that concentrated eugenol could effectively lower the risk of developing colon cancer by 40%.
Unfiltered, raw honey also is home to many probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria that fight bad bacteria in our gut. They improve gut health and the immune system by absorbing all nutrients from the food we consume. Honey effectively increases the bacteria level in our digestive system.
Why is Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar the Best for Colon Cleansing?
Now, let’s talk about unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Because of the intense research made on this particular ingredient, the health benefits of apple cider vinegar are an important topic of discussion amongst nutritionists, health care providers and individuals who are actively looking for home-based, natural remedies for treating varied health conditions.
Apple cider vinegar is affordable and easily available. But, you must buy the raw, unfiltered in order to cleanse the colon. You can easily differentiate between the raw and processed ones.
The raw usually contains murky sediments lying at the bottom of the container. These murky sediments are called the ‘Mother’ because they contain most of the health beneficiary properties that we get from apple cider vinegar. The unfiltered, murky sediments found in apple cider vinegar are the home to acetobacter, a type of bacteria that when combines with oxygen ferment the apple cider into vinegar.
The bacteria definitely helps activate your colon to cleanse itself effectively because it effectively breaks down the food in our digestive system, allowing our body to absorb the nutrients completely and discard the waste.
The bacteria also regulates Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) by maintaining a healthy count of good bacteria in our gut.
Other health beneficiary properties found in apple cider vinegar are purposefully lower glucose count in blood and improve blood pressure level. Vinegar’s health benefits are not unknown to us. It contains several bioactive components – gallic acid, catechin, epicatechin, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, acetic acid, ferulic acid, and p-coumaric acid.
These constituents work as a natural, therapeutic remedy to many health conditions. Vinegar is a natural anti-oxidant, antimicrobial and anti-tumour, it prevents blood pressure and diabetes, helps reduce weight, and lowers cholesterol naturally.
White rice vinegar has shown significant effects in reducing the risks of colon cancer according to a Japanese study conducted on rats.
Unprocessed and raw apple cider vinegar and honey can be consumed by anyone, every day without fear – right from people who are diabetic to people who have heart and kidney problems. Both the ingredients are gut and health-friendly, affordable, and available in all supermarkets.
