An herbal colon cleanse is an alternative complimentary therapy that can help improve digestion, enhance energy, improve your digestive system and remove toxins from the colon and gastrointestinal tract. The natural herbs used to make colon cleansing products have laxative properties and can help reduce inflammation. Herbal colon cleanse products are available over the counter without a doctor’s prescription and contain some of the following ingredients.

Flaxseed is one of the most popular herbal, natural healing products used by adults and children. Flaxseed is not a vitamin or mineral. It contains soluble fiber – the part of plant-based foods that cannot be digested – which aids in stimulating your digestive tract and promoting bowel movements. Flaxseed also helps relieve symptoms associated with constipation and is also commonly used as a remedy for menopause symptoms. Flaxseed is well tolerated and has few, if any, side effects.

Psyllium husk is a natural herb that is commonly used by adults in the United States. Psyllium helps relieve irritation in the bowel and soothes intestinal discomfort. Psyllium husk has an oily texture that softens the stool and relieves symptoms associated with constipation. Along with other natural herbs, psyllium reduces bloating in the abdomen and relieves pain and discomfort caused by irritable bowel syndrome.

Chamomile is one of the most popular herbs used in complimentary therapeutic treatments. Chamomile is helpful for relieving stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea, and flatulence in children and adults. Chamomile is also used to treat gastrointestinal disorders and digestive irritation.

The National Center for Complementary Alternative Medicine explains that aloe vera is a tropical plant that has been used as an oral laxative for several centuries. Aloe vera is a safe, natural herb that when used in colon cleansing products, reduces pain and bloating associated with irritable bowl syndrome for most patients. The laxative characteristics of aloe vera come from aloe latex, a bitter liquid in the leaf of the plant.

Cascara sagrada is an herb derived from the bark of a tree. Cascara sagrada, used in herbal colon cleanse products, is a natural herb that works like a powerful laxative by promoting regular bowel movements. Cascara sagrada is also known for lowering potassium and sodium levels.

Tumeric is a member of the ginger family. Tumeric is used in herbal colon cleanse products to ward off abdominal pain caused by inflammation, spasms or an obstruction in the bowels or gastrointestinal tract. Magnesium oxide is an important ingredient in colon cleansing products because it can introduce good bacteria into your system. Hydrochloric acid is used for reducing constipation. Hydrochloric acid contains peptides that work by breaking down proteins in the colon and may eliminate dangerous toxins.
