Most everything that you put in your body passes through your digestive system, and overtime it gets clogged with toxins and waste. If left untreated it will keep building up and cause health problems like weakened immune system, low energy, and several bowel problems. By doing a simple colon cleanse you can cure your body all of these impurities, start loosing weight, and with a healthy lifestyle it can even help you live longer. Learn how to make this amazing colon cleanse with 2 simple ingredients...
It's like yogurt, but better.
Kefir is a fermented yogurt like drink made from milk and healthy living organisms known as "grains", and it's very high in amino acids and important B vitamins. These friendly bacteria can attach to the colon and help aid in digestion and improve your digestive tract. While passing through your digestive system the bacteria work to restore it and help cleanse your intestine. Additionally it kills E-coli, parasites, and relieves inflamed bowels.
And unlike yogurt, kefir contains good yeasts that provides your body more nutrition and cleans your colon better than yogurt. The microorganisms in the kefir additionally eat away most of the lactose in the milk, making safe for lactose intolerant people. There are also non dairy options like made from fruit juice or lactose free milks such as rice, coconut, and almond.
Flaxseeds are more important than you think.
Besides making the kefir easier to eat, flaxseed has amazing cleansing benefits of its own. It absorbs water like a sponge and expands washing the toxins away as it passes through the digestive system. It is also very high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, and essential minerals. Flaxseed oil could be used if ground flaxseeds aren't available, although the benefits are not as strong.
How they work together
If you don't usually eat fermented foods it is recommended to start with small amounts, so your body has a chance to adjust. The beginning dose is about 1/4 cup of kefir mixed with a tablespoon of ground flaxseed taken with a small amount of food in the morning, and then again before bed. As you become more adjusted to including fermented food in your diet you can gradually increase the serving size.
It's important to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day you do this cleanse in order to stay properly hydrated. Staying properly nourished is recommended as well because the kefir works better when its's digested with other foods. It is also important to take a break for a few days every other week to give your body a break. This is meant to be used periodically as an ongoing maintenance, so it's important not to over use the cleanse.
