Sometimes you change your surroundings or you haven’t been making the healthiest food choices, so you start having problems with constipation and you feel a little weighed down.

We all know that organic, raw honey is extremely beneficial for our overall health due to its phenolic compound know as eugenol.
Eugoneol is really important compound because it has anti-tumor properties. That’s why the active compounds in honey are believed to help kill cancer cells in the body making it a great addition to a colon cleanse. Moreover, honey provides the body with probiotics which help restore healthy bacteria to the digestive system. Healthy bacteria are very important since they help the body digest food and absorb nutirents from it.
Apple Cider Vinegar
You already know that raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar is extremely beneficial for many health problems. Constipation and digestive problems are not an exception. You just need to be sure that your ACV is organic, raw and unfiltered. The nutritional benefits haven’t been filtered out, so the unfiltered particles will provide your body with the most benefits. The reason why ACV is so good is because it contains a bacteria know as acetobacter which is a “friendly” bacteria that breaks down food in the gut.
Moreover, ACV has antibiotic properties which can help improve the acid content in the stomach, reducing heartburn and acid reflux. There are also several antioxidants in ACV such as caffeic acids, cholorgenic acid, gallic anc catechin acids which keep the body healthy. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar can even increase the body’s absorption of important minerals from the food you eat to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your leafy greens!
Signs You May Need a Colon Cleanse
Toxicity from a blocked colon can cause several health issues. You definitely need colon cleansing if you experience some of the following health issues:
Aches – an impacted colon can cause headaches, sciatic pain and backaches, so you need to detoxify your organism.
Constipation – can be a result of poor diet, stress, or chemicals and other toxic substances that cause the colon to try ro protect itself by producing more mucus. This eventually builds up on the bowel walls, and you are constipated.
Acne – A clogged colon can cause toxins to overwhelm the pores and cause acne.
Fatigue – you can feel tired all the time because the toxic residue in your colon can circulate through the blood to all parts of the body which results in fatigue.
Odor – when the colon releases toxic gas into the body, body odor, gas or even bad breath can occur.
