Does a 7 Day Colon Cleanse Really Work?

One of the biggest questions that many people have with a 7 day colon cleanse is whether or not the product actually works.  After all, the purpose of any bowel cleanser is to remove concentrations of feces and waste that have accumulated over years and years (unless you periodically flush the gastrointestinal tract as recommended).  Is there a colon cleanser out there that can dissolve all of this accumulated waste in the bowels in about a week—or is this just advertising hype?

Before this question can be answered, it is important to first make the distinction between a bowel cleanser and a product or diet that merely cleans out the gastrointestinal tract but does not remove the accumulated waste.  For example, a diet that is rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants will help maintain regularity and prevent the accumulation of more waste on the sides of the colon.  However, there is little that fiber or antioxidants can do about the waste that has already accumulated—and this is the same with many bowel cleansing products on the market today.

A lot of the “super colon cleanse” products have this same effect—they are great for clearing the colon out and thus alleviating constipation problems.  However, they are often psyillium-based which is another mild (but all natural) ingredient that has little effect upon the waste that has built up in the gastrointestinal tract over the years.  Therefore, be very wary of any colon cleanse product that claims to flush your entire system if psyllium is the active ingredient.

There are a number of bowel cleansers available that will in fact dissolve the concentrations of waste in about a week.  Unfortunately, many of these colon cleansing products are made with harsh chemicals that can cause a number of side effects, including:

  • Dehydration
  • Skin problems like acne, increased wrinkles
  • Destruction of intestinal flora

The destruction of intestinal flora (the beneficial bacteria in your colon and digestive system) is common in many chemically-based bowel cleansers.  In particular, be careful of colon cleansing systems that promise to destroy the parasites and bacteria present in the colon.  While these products will actually kill these dangerous organisms, they also tend to destroy your intestinal flora which can slow digestion and eliminate a natural defense against harmful bacteria.

In truth, there is no question that there are many benefits of colon cleansing especially when it is performed on a consistent and periodic basis.  While there are a ton of bowel cleansers on the market from which to choose, not all work as advertised.  Just be sure to locate an all-natural bowel cleanser first as this will help you avoid the negative side effects caused by chemicals and other lab creations.  Then, make sure that the 7 day colon cleanse product will dissolve the accumulated waste while not destroying the intestinal flora.
