COL-Care is a well-known herbal colon cleanser and bowel support combination, based on a formula by master herbalist, Dr. John R. Christopher. It is available in 2 versions: Col-Care and Col-Care Ultra.
Popular with colonic hydrotherapists, COL-Care contains a range of active herbal ingredients which help to cleanse the intestinal tract, soften the stool, stimulate the liver and improve peristalsis. This, in turn, helps to produce bowel movements and expel layers of old encrusted mucus and faecal matter that may have accumulated over time.
It acts to gently cleanse, stimulate and tone the bowel wall, supporting a move towards unassisted bowel movements.
About the colon
The colon forms a part of the large intestine. The main functions of the large intestine are the formation and elimination of waste and the absorption of water and minerals.
A fully-functioning, healthy colon will usually rid the body of waste 2 to 3 times per day, depending on the number of meals eaten. It will also carry out the function of promptly removing toxins and other waste materials from the body which, if allowed to remain, could give rise to health problems.
Things like stress, travel, illness and lack of exercise can all have an impact on the function of the colon (and the process of digestion generally). However, diet is often a key factor (including food allergies and sensitivities).
Of course, many other health conditions can affect your bowels; any specific concerns should be discussed with a medical professional.
