The intestinal system features the colon (or bowel)-a muscular organ about five feet long. The colon extracts water from the waste matter and sends it back into the bloodstream. Nerves and muscles in the colon regulate the time it takes waste matter to travel through the colon and out of the body. Friendly bacteria in the bowel aid in the breakdown of waste.
Colon health is largely affected by diet. We eat more sugar and processed foods than ever before, and we regularly abuse our bodies with various stimulants and sedatives. In addition, we are all exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis (air and water pollution, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc.). All of this impacts bowel health and function.
Stress and lack of muscle tone can also affect colon function.
For health and well-being, it is essential that this “sewer system” of the body receives regular cleaning and preventative care.

Transit Time-Too Long—Occasional constipation occurs when waste material stays in the colon too long and too much water is absorbed from it. Toxins can also be reabsorbed into the bloodstream.
Too Short—Occasional diarrhea occurs when waste goes through the bowel too quickly and not enough water is absorbed. Beneficial gut bacteria may be lost.

Bowel Detox provides digestive enzymes to aid digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as ingredients to provide needed bulk to encourage proper flow of waste through the colon.
Nature’s Three fiber supplement combines psyllium, oat fiber and apple fiber to support the normal function of the bowel. Fiber binds with cholesterol and bile salts and helps reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood, which helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within
normal limits. It can also reduce transit time.
Bifidophilus Flora Force® provides 4 billion friendly bacteria per capsule to help create favorable balance in the gut. These good guys help with digestion and promote immunity.
Liquid Chlorophyll provides green energy and helps cleanse and freshen the bowel and body.
