Will a Herbal Colon Cleanse Solve Constipation Issues?

Without question, most herbal colon cleanse products on the market today will in fact help remove compacted feces and undigested food from the gastrointestinal tract.  The relevant question, however, is just how severe the constipation problem is because that will help determine what type of bowel cleanser to employ.  In general, a herbal colon cleanser would not be the best choice for an acute case of constipation.  However, for recurring constipation problems, herbal cleansing products are generally acceptable.

Acute, or short-term, constipation problems require attention immediately and herbal bowel cleansing products tend to require several days or even weeks to effectively flush the gastrointestinal tract of accumulated waste.  There are colon cleansing products that can resolve constipation issues faster but many of these are made from harsh chemicals or other synthetic ingredients that tend to cause side effects such as dehydration (a known cause of constipation problems).

In truth, all natural colon cleansing products cause fewer side effects and are equally effective at dissolving accumulated waste and undigested food in the bowels.  An herbal bowel cleanser would be considered an all natural product but it is a sub-category because herbs are the principal active ingredients.  Again, these herbal cleansers will flush the gastrointestinal tract but they require a lot of time to be fully effective.  For periodic cleansing of the bowels, a colon cleanser made with herbal active ingredients is generally acceptable but it may not be the best solution when constipation problems are already present.

Chronic or even recurring constipation problems may signal the presence of a more serious medical condition, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • MS
  • Polyps
  • Colon Cancer

Even when the source of the constipation is not due to some major medical issue, the simple fact that regularity problems already exist means that a serious bowel cleansing is justified.  It is entirely possible that the constipation is due to a dietary problem but because there are already issues with having normal bowel movements, there is a strong possibility that they gastrointestinal tract is loaded with accumulated waste.  The recurring constipation problems are therefore likely due to fecal compactions.  In order to eliminate the accumulated waste and stop the constipation problems from occurring, a thorough cleansing of the bowels will be required.

Herbal colon cleansers tend to be rather mild and are not ideally suited for the removal of hardened feces and waste that have accumulated along the walls of the gastrointestinal tract for years.  Some of the common ingredients found in herbal colon cleansers are:

  • Cape Aloe Leaf
  • Cascara Sagrada
  • Barberry Root Bark
  • Ginger Root
  • Turkey Rhubarb Root

For periodic cleansing of the gastrointestinal tract and when there are no present constipation problems, a herbal colon cleanse is a great product that will naturally help maintain regularity.  When there are already constipation problems or when no previous bowel cleansing has been performed, an all natural product that does not exclusively rely upon herbs for active ingredients is preferred.
