DID YOU KNOW?
There are two types of natural fiber – soluble and insoluble. Both play an important role in digestive health:
Soluble fiber is found in oats, beans, nuts, some fruits as well as barley and psyllium husk.
Insoluble fiber is present in certain vegetables like spinach, kale, eggplant, onions and kernel corn but wheat bran and whole grains are probably the best-known sources.
- Psyllium Husk is 70-80% soluble which makes it one of the best sources of soluble fiber
- Psyllium Husk absorbs fluids within the colon to form a gel-like substance. This added bulk re-hydrates the colon and helps fecal matter move gently through the system
- Insoluble fiber does not absorb or dissolve in water in the colon. It adds bulk to the stool
- Since the gut does not break it down, waste tends to pass through our digestive system more quickly
WHO SHOULD USE ORIGINAL COLON CLEANSE?
People concerned with:
- Using a daily, easy to use natural fiber
- Limited access to or dislike of vegetables or fruit
- Occasional Constipation or other gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea

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.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in products that are purchased or in the environment, homes or worksites. Each chemical is assessed separately and restricted at different levels or amounts.
- A serving of Original Colon Cleanse supplies 7 grams of soluble fiber necessary per day to have this effect.
When Prop 65 went into effect in 1986, there were 30 chemicals on the list required to have this warning. By 2013, the list had grown to over 903 chemicals.
As it relates to food, Prop 65 does not distinguish between natural and artificial products. Although, it excludes “naturally occurring” chemicals in foods, that term does not include man-made pollutants that may end up in natural products through processes outside of the manufacturer’s control.
The chemical in question for Health Plus Colon Cleanse is lead from Psyllium Husk. Although lead is inherent in Psyllium through the natural growth process, with only 0.5 mcg., we are required to put the Prop 65 Reproductive Harm warning label in California.
It is important to note that while these limits are in place for the consumer’s safety, the OEHHA (Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment) recognizes that the 0.5 mcg. consumption limit on lead is 1,000 lower than what is referred to as ‘safe exposure’ amounts. This means that when tested on humans and animals, by law, it would take 1,000 more lead than 0.5mcg. to have any observable effects on the reproductive system.
Lead is found in many, many different plants. It is very common for lead to enter soil through some water sources, fertilizers or pollutants and it is not uncommon for it to show up as naturally occurring in many dietary supplements with herbs. Health Plus makes every effort to ensure the quality and safety of our products. Health Plus is a FDA Registered facility. We follow and adhere to all federal and state standards for quality inspection and product testing.
