The colon is one of the most important organs in the body because it regulates the immune system, aids the digestion process, and maintains water balance in the body. Therefore, when the colon isn’t functioning 100%, toxic waste begins piling up in the body, instead of being disposed adequately.
During our life, more than 30,000 liters of liquid pass through the intestines, with additional 100 tons of different types of foods. That is, the intestines contain more than 30 pounds of toxic waste and fecal deposits.
These toxins enter the blood and they can cause irreparable damage. Some of the most common symptoms of a toxic colon are constipation, excessive weight, kidney and liver diseases, diabetes, problems with the skin, nails, and hair, arthritis, cancer, disrupted metabolism, etc.
In order to remove all these toxins from the colon, you should consume 1 to 3 tbsp of flaxseed flour for 3 weeks. Flaxseed encourages the cleansing, but it also preserves the intestinal microflora.
