Constipation and overweight are just some of the effects of a deficient and intoxicated colon (large intestine). Food-based nutrients from low quality, and careless habits, stress, lack of exercise and little attention to what we eat and how we eat are habits and influences of this time causing a series of disruption in our digestive apparatus.
If these habits are common and persistent in the long term we face a series of aches and ailments that are generated because the walls of the large intestine (colon) has a series of material waste stuck, hardened and embedded that prevents normal operation. This begins to generate a number of serious consequences due to the amount of toxins that are stored and cannot be eliminated effectively. This buildup of waste begins to move to other parts of the body. This coupled with environmental pollution, pesticides, the use of refined sugar, preservatives and food coloring are undoubtedly responsible for many ailments as fatigue, premature aging, anemia, arthritis, headaches, fevers, infections, allergies, depression, aggressiveness, anxiety, all kinds of inflammations, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
It must be taken into account that the intestines are not only the function of eliminating waste, they are also where you absorb nutrients from food and then move to the organs and tissues. Malfunction or obstruction of the colon with debris prevents a good absorption of nutrients that can cause, in addition, anemia and all consequences arising from poor absorption of nutrients, such as obesity, which, when the body is not well nourished, is because the body begins to store energy reserves in the form of fat deposits.
