Lately, a lot of people have been asking about the benefits of doing a raspbery ketone diet together with a colon cleanse. Will that help you lose more weight or lose it faster?
Colon cleansing has been touted by some natural practitioners as a way to reduce toxins in your body.
Our digestive tract is remarkably efficient at cleaning itself. In the average adult, food passes completely through your system in 50-60 hours. If you eat a high-fiber diet, that time may be reduced to as little as 24 hours. Contrary to what you may have heard, food does NOT stay in your colon for weeks and weeks on end, or even more than a couple of days, unless you have some condition where your intestines don't function properly.or a disease such as diverticulitis (where "pouches" form in intestinal walls.)
Colon cleanse supplements are a combination of natural laxatives (like Cascara Sagara, Senna or Turkey Rhubarb) and fiber sources (like flax seed or black seeds). The better ones like ColonMax from Pure Health Trends, contain additional ingredients to soothe the bowel and minimize discomfort from all the increased "activity."
A colon cleanse does not reduce fat or make your body more efficient at burning fat, BUT it may result in immediate weight loss by reducing fluid retention and excess waste, and help eliminate bloating. This can help get your diet off to a good start and make you feel better besides!
For healthy adults, it generally is fine to do a colon cleanse every now and then in conjunction with raspberry ketones or another diet regimen. Long term its best to add more fiber to your diet, if you can tolerate it. Not only does that give you the same benefits of cleaning out your digestive tract, but high fiber diets will also help you control your appetite and have been shown to reduce certain cancer risks.
As with any supplement, you should talk to your doctor first. Colon cleansers are not recommended if you have any intestinal disease or chronic disorder, such as IBD, IBS or similar conditions.
