Original Colon Cleanse FAQ
How does Colon Cleanse clean the colon?
Original Colon Cleanse is made of 100% psyllium husk. Psyllium helps to absorb toxins in the colon by creating a spongy, gelatinous mass in the bowels. By swelling and absorbing fluids, it breaks down and moves waste matter stuck in the folds and crevices of the colon. A clean colon inhibits bacteria from surviving on human waste. Psyllium husk soothes the lining of the bowel and leaves a thin slippery film along the inner lining of the colon, which makes it easier for waste generated later to move along smoothly.
Is the psyllium in Colon Cleanse a fiber from wheat grain?
Psyllium is a fiber grain; however, it is not related to wheat. Psyllium is a natural bulking agent that yields 60 to 70% soluble fiber; eight times that of oat bran. Psyllium expands 50 to 60 times in the stomach to provide this bulk or “roughage”. Fiber is essential for intestinal health. Fiber mucus, toxins and metabolic waste. It keeps the colon clean and waste matter moving. Fiber feeds and maintains a healthy intestinal flora.

The husk is mostly of a soluble fiber called hemicellouse. This soluble fiber adds bulk to the stomach and absorbs fluids to form a gel-like substance that stimulated the rhythmic muscular contractions in the colon responsible for evacuation process.
Does the soluble fiber in Original Colon Cleanse lower cholesterol?
Soluble fiber from foods such as psyllium husk as a part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol attaches itself to fiber and is carried out of the body with solid waste matter. A serving of Colon Cleanse supplies 7 grams of soluble fiber necessary per day to have this effect. Coronary heart disease has been linked to elevated blood cholesterol levels. Recent scientific research has revealed the important role psyllium plays in the diet to reduce “Bad” cholesterol or LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins), while having no significant effect on the HDL (High-Density Lipoproteins) or good cholesterol. Studies from three independent universities: University of Kentucky, George Washington University and the University of Massachusetts, presented some dramatic results. Low Fat diet that included psyllium has a greater cholesterol lowering effect that low fat diets without psyllium.
