By cleansing your digestive system of any unwanted toxins, you’ll feel brand new after just one day!

The Digestive System

Our digestive system mostly consists of our large and small intestines. The large intestine is made up of a muscular tube called the colon, which; ‘absorbs water and salt from the remaining food matter after it goes through the small intestine’ (The American Cancer Society).

Our colon is a major contributor to the ‘storage and controlled evacuation of fecal material and digestion and absorption of undigested food,’ states Turnbull et al.

Considering the colon does so much for our digestive system, it is definitely a good idea to give it a clean out every now and again! Below are a few of the ingredients found in our detox recipe that will help with that colon cleanse!
