The health of the intestinal system
is linked to our overall health. This system is not just a pipe where
waste goes through, it`s the place where nutrients are absorbed from the
food, and then transported to the our blood via the liver.
Processed food has low or no nutritional value, it even makes our body acidic and in order to protects itself, the body coats this unhealthy food with mucus. This, on the other hand, lines the intestines, forming hard plaque which obstructs the nutrient to get into the blood stream. This makes as eat more and more, the body craves nutrients which it does not get, and we only end up getting fat.
The garbage gets accumulated, bacteria and parasites start feasting, and the body shuts down. In this point we need to stop and clean the system completely.
Maybe you`re are going to the toilet normally, but this doesn`t mean that the whole waste is coming out.
You need to cleanse the colon properly, to remove all the toxins from it. These cleanse we are sharing with you is packed with nutrients, vitamins and fibers.
Apples contain soluble fibers, which will make you fell full longer, plus they normalize the stool.
Flax seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fibers which are excellent for cleansing the colon, helping the food pass and reducing the risk of colon cancer.
Chia seeds are rich in vitamins and nutrients which will be absorbed by your body, removing the toxins in the same time. They are also a great source of proteins so you will fell full longer, as well as omega-3 fatty acids which will make your heart stronger.
For this Apple Colon Cleanse you will need:
- 1 apple
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseed (preferably ground, because it`s easier to digest)
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 glass of water
Mix all the ingredients in a blender, except the chia seed
Pour them in a glass, then add the chia seeds
Stir the liquid until the chia seeds have expanded (about 5 min)
It is very important to drink lots of water when you consume food rich in fibers, like apples.
