Progast® Oxy-Colon Cleanse
Progast® Oxy-Colon Cleanse is a botanical laxative for those seeking an effective drug-free solution for effortless and odourless elimination. Use for constipation or as a gentle bowel detox.
By middle age many people have as much as 7 kg of undigested, putrefactive food in the colon. Toxins produced from this putrefactive build-up are absorbed back into the bloodstream creating ‘autointoxication’ or self-poisoning – also known as bowel toxaemia. Bowel toxaemia results in a dramatically weakened immune system and can lead to serious debilitating health problems.
Despite a lucrative laxative industry, chronic constipation and fecal impaction (waste that becomes stuck in the colon) remain common gastrointestinal conditions. Some laxatives irritate the bowel to stimulate fluid secretion, causing the bowel to eventually become ‘lazy’ – so best to choose the natural way.
Symptoms that a colon cleanse is necessary
- Abdominal discomfort
- Abdominal pain
- Chronic and acute constipation
- Leakage of liquid stool
The importance of a clean colon
Complete digestion is necessary for nutrient absorption and to avoid waste product build-up that can cause toxins to be re-absorbed.1 In South Africa, 29% of the population suffer from constipation, especially in the elderly.2 That is very high when compared to the global average of 14% of adults. Complications of fecal impaction of the colon include tears in the colon wall; anal bleeding, anal tears and haemorrhoids, appendicitis and acute diverticulitis.
