You wouldn’t believe it, but you may have over 33 pounds of toxic waste matter in your colon! And this green flax smoothie is just the recipe to help get rid of it.
As we consume a large variety of acidic foods, our colon becomes a storehouse of putrified waste matter. Many studies claim that over half of the diseases are associated with our digestive health – and that’s no wonder. If our digestive tract isn’t working properly, toxins that are normally supposed to be eliminated, stay stuck in the micro-fine villi that line the intestine and become re-absorbed into our blood stream (ultimately making us sick and chronically ill).
Poor colon health also results in gas, indigestion, acidity and stomach distress. It can also result in people not eliminating more than once per day, when we should be aiming for three bowel movements daily.
After cleansing your colon with the proper foods and replacing foods with healthier ones, you’ll notice a dramatic difference in your day-to-day life. You’ll experience improved energy levels, better digestive health, and clearer skin.
Coconut water kefir is great for improving digestive health and restoring the good flora in our intestinal tract. Ground flaxseeds are also a miracle for promoting frequent bowel movements and absorbing toxins on the way out. The greens in this smoothie take it up a notch to help alkalinize the body and sweep the intestines clean. Bad bacteria, parasites and viruses hate the alkalinity of greens, and will be promptly eliminated once they encounter the green power that is leafy greens!
