WHY DO A BOWEL DETOX?
While most of us are worried about getting maximum nutrition in, it's just as important if not more so is getting maximum waste out. The best way to regain health and stay healthy is to periodically cleanse and detoxify the body of accumulated wastes.
Health and well-being starts in the colon, therefore colon cleansing is the first step to better health Your colon is the body's largest eliminating organ and responsible for cleansing your body of waste and impurities, which if left in the body, can cause degenerative diseases. Some other important functions of your colon include:
- Digesting the food we eat;
- Transferring the nutritional value of food into your cells;
- Reabsorbing fluids and processing waste from food and eliminating it from the body;
- Serving as a drain pipe for waste produced as a result of metabolic functions within the body, harmful bacteria and toxic substances absorbed through our lungs and skin;
- Serving as a home for beneficial bacteria that provide a number of essential functions, including aiding in digestion and supporting the immune system
Cleansing has been practised for centuries to help maintain good health. Our body is always trying to self-cleanse, however with today's over exposure to pollutants through the chemicals in our food, pollution, medication, chemicals in our clothes and products we use, it is difficult for the body to effectively cleanse itself. Toxins are broken down and stored in different organs including our colon.
Toxic overload overwhelms the body, and putrefied waste and mucoid plaque form on the walls of the intestines. Keeping the blood clean and pure becomes harder and harder as the colon slows from the invasion of toxins. Getting nutrition from the foods you eat becomes a difficult task as more and more toxins are absorbed into the bloodstream. This continuous process of toxin absorption and storage is a disastrous combination.
BENEFITS OF INTESTINAL CLEANSING
Results and improvements can vary from each person, depending on their lifestyle and diet habits over the years. Someone who has lived a relatively healthy lifestyle by eating organic food, exercising regularly and drinking pure water, will have a better and quicker response to the detox as opposed to someone who has not lived a healthy lifestyle. Some people may need to do the detox 4-5 times before successful removing the entire mucoid plaque.
Some of the more common results are:
- weight loss;
- improved skin condition;
- increased energy;
- increased absorption of nutrients;
- reduced bloating;
- relief from constipation, IBS, chronic diarrohea and diverticulitis.
Although results may vary from person to person, one thing everyone has in common is the health and longevity gained from a clean and properly functioning body.

I’ve been using this product for a little over a year now. I’m post op/western ‘treatment’ for stage 3 bowel cancer. My Intestinal bio terrain has been stripped and this product is helping me to slowly regain a healthy functional GI tract. In our current toxic climate, this product is invaluable! Viva la friendly bacteria! Oh and it’s shelf friendly – no refrigeration required!!!! HUGE bonus
Wonderful,product, I have been using this for a while now and have noticed great results, my stomach is less bloated.
It is a fantastic product and well tolerated with no ill side effects eg excessive bloating
The product has helped me to cure chronic bladder infections and recurring pain associated with urinary infections. I recommend this product to anyone because it has proven very helpful and potent
I use Ultimate Biotic and find it extremely helpful in maintaining my intestinal health. I often put it in my green smoothie.
So happy to have a probiotic that also has a prebiotic to feed the good bacteria. I wanted a probiotic with Lactobacillus plantarum and this one has it, along with 15 other strains! I also use it as a starter to ferment vegetables. Great product
