Everyone’s digestive system is made of small and large intestines. At least for the most part.
Our large intestine is made from a muscular tube, the colon. Its job is to absorb salt and water from any remaining food after it has gone through our small intestine.
Our colon plays a very important role: it contributes massively to the evacuation and storage of fecal matter.
It also plays a part in the absorption and digestion of any undigested food. In other words, it’s pretty important.
So it’s most certainly a good idea to give it a well-deserved cleansing from time to time.
Below you will learn about the ingredients which you should add in your colon detox recipe.
Not only is ginger healthy and vibrant, but it’s also delicious! Our ancestors have used it for centuries to treat all kinds of different ailments.
Migraines, colds, hypertension, nausea, and arthritis are only a few examples.
It’s an ideal ingredient for a detox drink as it stimulates absorption, digestion, and can also relieve any flatulence and constipation.
It does so by boosting our digestive tract’s muscular activity.
But it’s not like ginger is only beneficial for our colon, it has a multitude of health benefits and should be included in one’s everyday diet in one way or another!
When Life Gives You…
Lemons. You are probably already aware that citrus fruits, in general, are bursting with vitamin C.
Not to mention their high antioxidant content and the fact that they offer a multitude of benefits. Lemons are great for helping you digest.
If you combine them with some warm water, even better, they’re a great natural treatment for bloating, heartburn and acidity.
They are also potent regulators of stomach acids.
They are truly miraculous as they can even keep your house clean! Use them to take care of both your home and yourself; it’s a win-win combo!
An Apple a Day…
Keeps you healthy, all right. It is abundant in soluble fiber, which is essential for one’s digestive health.
It can slow down the absorption of carbs from ingested foods, and also lower one’s blood cholesterol. It can also aid in stabilizing one’s blood sugar levels.
There have also been some studies which claim that fiber can even have an effect on the nutrient absorption and the waste product movements through one’s colon.
So don’t hesitate to include fresh, organic apple juice to your daily meal agenda. It can only do your digestive system good!
3-Ingredient Juice Recipe
- Half a cup of pure apple juice (organic)
- 2 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice (organic)
- 1 tsp. of ginger juice (organic)
- 1/2 a teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/2 a cup of filtered water (lukewarm)
Simply combine all of the ingredients in a jug and give it a good stir! Consume one glass on an empty stomach each morning.
Consume two more large glasses with and after your midday meal. Drink yet another two glasses in the evening around 6-7 PM.
It is best to drink 5 large glasses (or 8 smaller ones) throughout the day. That way, the benefits will be most apparent.
This cleanse is only meant to last for one day, no more.
And lastly, a word of caution: it is always a good idea to consult with your doctor before drink this or any other detox recipe, especially if you happen to be allergic, pregnant, diabetic or any other condition you’re not sure about.
