Living in this modern age we are faced with the intake of plenty unhealthy foods like processed and junk foods which are low in fiber, but high in animal fats. This way of living usually accompanied with not enough physical activity and plenty of stress leads to poor gastrointestinal health. The presence of toxins are inevitable in this era of living, and because of that we need to cleanse our body from time to time, especially the colon that is accountable for the removal of body waste.
Each body cell and tissue along with the main detox organ-the liver depend on a colon that works well so that all the toxins are efficiently removed from the body. Although the leftover waste from the food digestion ends up in the colon, there are still valuable nutrients and hormones that need to be absorbed or manufactured. Once the colon finishes with this job, it excretes the waste from the body.
You can efficiently clean your colon by using a remedy based on honey and vinegar.

The primal function is to digest the food we consume.
