Supports Healthy Colon Cleansing
Routinely cleansing your system promotes overall wellness by helping to maintain a healthy colon.
Colon Formula is a unique proprietary blend of different high-quality soluble and insoluble fibers, along with valuable herbal concentrates, and a synergistic blend of beneficial microflora (probiotics).
Together, they help maintain healthy colon ecology and intestinal acid-alkaline balance.
Colon Formula helps to keep the transit time of digested food through your colon at a healthy rate and promotes routine elimination. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods, combined with this wonderful supplement, provides a convenient way to support natural cleansing and colon health, as well as supporting already healthy cholesterol levels, all of which are key to supporting overall vitality and wellness.
Colon Formula can be added to your Daily BioBasics™ for a more advanced routine cleansing or used periodically for more intensive cleansing.
Maintains Healthy Intestinal Ecology
Indigenous Africans, studied by the late Dr. Dennis Burkitt, the world-renowned British physician who brought dietary fiber to the attention of the Western world, routinely consumed 75-100 grams of fiber in their daily diets.
Dr. Burkitt reported that these people experienced more rapid intestinal transit times than people eating “Western” diets (4-6 hrs. vs. 60-90 hrs.), and had healthier bowels, hearts, digestive systems, and routine elimination of waste.
Maintenance of Healthy Blood Pressure
One of the primary fiber sources in Colon Formula is the seed and seed husk of Psyllium (Plantago Ovata, Plantago Ispaghula).
These seeds have long been used as a dietary supplement to promote routine bowel function. They also have a long history in traditional health practices of both China and India in the maintenance of alreaady healthy blood pressure, as well as healthy bladder and colon function.
Due to its high soluble fiber content, psyllium, similar to the other fibers contained in Colon Formula such as guar gum, maltodextrin-soluble fiber, flaxseed, and alginate, slows the absorption of dietary sugars. This absorption helps to maintain and promote already healthy blood sugar and insulin levels.
Promotes Probiotic Activity
Another primarily soluble fiber source in Colon Formula is known as “resistant maltodextrin” or maltodextrin-soluble fiber.
Clinical studies have shown that introducing resistant maltodextrin to the diet increases the number of beneficial bacteria in the colon.
This stimulates increased production of beneficial short-chain fatty acids, which are used as primary fuel by the cells lining the colon, increased absorption of calcium and magnesium, and improved elimination of waste.
Fiber Binds Harsh Environmental Compounds
Flax is one of the oldest known cultivated plants, dating back to 5000 B.C. Ancient East Indian scriptures state that in order to reach the highest state of contentment and joy, a person must eat flax daily. Mahatma Gandhi once observed: “Wherever flaxseed becomes a regular food item among people, there will be better health.”
Flaxseed fiber is one of the richest sources of lignans, a type of phytoestrogen (also known as isoflavone), providing 75-800 times more plant lignans than most plant sources.
Recently, scientists at the National Cancer Institute singled out flaxseed as one of six foods that deserved special study.
Guar gum is another of the beneficial fibers of Colon Formula.
Historically, guar gum has been used to maintain already healthy blood sugar levels and control appetite. It is widely used in the food industry as a thickener and binder of free water in sauces, salad dressings, and several other applications.
The last variety of fiber included in Colon Formula is extracted from Pacific Brown Kelp, otherwise known as marine alginate. Like guar gum, alginate hydrates in the intestine to form a gel, which tightly binds harsh environmental compounds and prevents their absorption (or re-absorption if they have already been cleared by the liver and eliminated into the intestine through the bile).
Supports Healthy Immune Function
Along with the fiber food source for the beneficial colon bacteria, Colon Formula supplies a proprietary blend of four of these probiotic bacterial species: Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus Bifidus, and Lactobacillus Salivarius.
There is accumulating evidence that the symbiotic beneficial bacterial colony of the colon serves multiple important health-promoting functions, including the support of healthy immune functions.
Promotes a Healthy Acid/Alkaline Balance
Probiotics also promote healthy digestion. Enzymes such as lactase, the enzyme needed to digest milk, are secreted by probiotic bacteria and aid in certain aspects of digestion.
Acidophilus and bifidobacteria produce B vitamins as well, including niacin, folic acid, vitamin B-12, and vitamin B-6, as well as vitamin K.
They produce organic compounds such as lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and acetic acid that help maintain and promote a healthy acid/alkaline balance in the colon.
A powdered clay known as bentonite, derived from deposits of weathered volcanic ash is another important cleansing factor in this powerful food supplement.
When bentonite combines with water (hydrates), it swells. This swelling stretches it open like a highly porous sponge, capable of drawing in and binding various types of wastes.
The clay is eventually eliminated from the body with the waste bound to its multiple surfaces and is also a source of over 70 trace and ultra-trace minerals.
Black walnut leaf powder is also included in Colon Formula, to assist in maintaining healthy bowel ecology.
To complete the recipe, beetroot powder, which contains the red pigment “betanin”, a potent flavonoid anthocyan, and is traditionally honored for general stimulating and resistance-enhancing effects, is included.
Colon Formula contains the exclusive PhytoZyme™ Base, a proprietary blend of over 30 specially selected fruit, vegetable, and herbal concentrates, and the proprietary Cytovex™ base, which contains stabilized bromelain enzyme from pineapple, papayotin enzyme from papaya, plus lysozyme enzymes from egg white.
Contains no artificial preservatives, sugar, starch, caffeine, salt, wheat, gluten, yeast, corn, milk, shellfish, soya derivatives, artificial sweetening, flavoring or coloring agents. Not Tested on Animals.
