The colon absorbs nutrients, vitamins, water and salt. When these essential ingredients are being rightly absorbed, we are feeling good. But when our colon is not working properly, it begins to absorb toxins instead of expelling them.
The food we consume should pass through our body within 24 hours, but unfortunately most of that food is not only lacking in fiber and enzymes but it is filled with preservatives, additives, and other chemicals. Therefore, our body sometimes needs even up to 70 hours for passing the food which will result with big waste materials in the colon.

Constipation is maybe the most common sign, but there are also other symptoms that indicate a blocked colon:

• Poor health
• Flatulence
• Bladder infection
• Vaginal infection
• Fatigue
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Abdominal pain
• Diarrhea
• Mood swings
• Poor memory
• Skin rashes
• Weak immunity
• Pain in the joints and muscles

To ward off long-term health problems, it is crucial to maintain proper functioning of the colon.
