There are hundreds of different colon−cleansing products available on the market today and most of them are sold without prescription. It is easy to purchase any of these cleansing products without any guidance from the medical profession. The popularity of colon cleansing treatments has resulted in numerous scams and ineffective and sometimes dangerous colon cleansing products. 

At O2 Living, we have designed a product guide that will help you make informed, educated choices as it’s very important to choose a colon cleansing products that contains vitamins A, C, E and selenium. These substances help to avoid damage to the colon. Vitamin E increases blood circulation and muscle tone which aids digestion. Vitamin A (also called beta−carotene) helps in building the cells in the gastrointestinal tract. 

You must avoid magnesium based colon cleansing products as they don’t or won’t produce long−term results. Some of the cleansing products available contain bentonite, which is heavy metal, and it is very harmful to your organism. You must also avoid tablet form colon cleansing products, as tablets are the cheapest to produce and they are manufactured with the help of heat, which can destroy beneficial nutrients. In addition, tablets are harder to absorb than powders, capsules or liquids. Make sure that the ingredients of the colon cleansing products are properly proportioned. Even beneficial ingredients may result in a serious health disorder when mixed together. For example, Magnesium Sulfate mixed with Senna and Cascara Sagrada may cause colon shock, which will prevent it from emptying in the natural way.
