5 Benefits of a Clean Colon

5 Benefits of a Clean Colon

If you are looking for a way to feel better, improve your energy, and detoxify your body, you might find your answer in an unexpected place: your colon.

A colon cleanse may be just what you need to kickstart your health and get you back on the right track, or it could be simply a nudge in the right direction. Either way, you will come out on the other side with improved wellness, which is our goal at GI Physicians in Lima, Ohio.

Ven Kottapalli, MD has guided many patients through this procedure, so here are five benefits he knows you will experience from having a clean colon:

Improved digestion

Cleansing your colon from the effects of occasional constipation purges waste products from your body. Once the extra waste is no longer in the colon, your body can absorb nutrients from your food much more effectively, which also boosts your immune system. You will be much more regular as well.

Removal of toxins

Releasing layers of buildup in the colon with a cleanse also helps remove unhealthy toxins from your body. This process can reverse the effects of environmental factors and unhealthy lifestyle habits that cause the colon to become overloaded. The release of toxins benefits your whole body.

More energy

Getting the toxins and waste out of your body tends to rejuvenate you. The energy used to force your waste through the colon can now be put to better use in other areas of your body. Because you are absorbing vitamins and nutrients more effectively, your mental clarity and concentration may also increase.

Weight loss

Undergoing a colon cleanse can lead to significant weight loss just from the procedure itself (pounds of waste can build up in your colon over time), but it can also jumpstart your metabolism, which can result in even more significant weight loss in the future. Going through the cleanse can also help you focus more on the food choices you’re making and improve your attention to your overall wellness.

Better colon health

When you cleanse your colon, you rid toxins from your body. If these toxins are not flushed out, they can linger in the body, doing damage to both your colon and the rest of your body’s systems. Releasing them also reduces the risks of polyps and cancerous growths in your colon. Once the waste is out, beneficial gut flora and bacteria can then begin to flourish again in your colon.
