Colon Cleanse contains herbs traditionally used for:
Where does Gas Come From?Although many people believe gas comes from swallowing air or chemical reactions in the gut, most gas comes from bacteria living in the gut. When our stomach, pancreas, or liver enzymes are too deficient to break own food, the population of bacteria explodes in the gut. Just as homemade beer or alcohol bubbles due to yeast activity, fermentation in the gut can produce massive amounts of gas.
Why do Farts Smell?As bacteria release gas, they also release their excrement directly in the digestive tract, causing foul and smelly gas or fecal matter. As food becomes more and more rotten, it also becomes acidic and irritating to the sensitive digestive tract lining, compromising its protective barrier. Intestines are highly absorbant, like a sponge, and some of the toxicity leaks through the gut barrier. Leaky Gut Syndrome is a condition where even small doses of toxins passes through the digestive tract lining uninhibited. Indigestion, including gas or constipation, is a serious disease because of the long term effects of chronic toxicity on nearly every tissue in the body. See Sensitive Stomach Tea for more information about gut deficiency.
What is Constipation?Daily bowel movements cleanse rotting food from our bodies and are essential for health. While skipping a day every now and then is okay, skipping a day more than once a week is considered borderline constipation among Ayurvedic practitioners. Ayurveda believes the root cause of constipation is indigestion. Colon Cleanse is specially formulated to improve digestive health and address this root cause.

Dear Alicia, The ingredients in bear hugs are generally mild and safe. However, often constipation is easier to remedy in children with the diet and I would recommend that approach. Warm Regards, -John
Usage 1/2 tsp before meals or as directed by your practitioner. Enjoy!
i needed a product that would help dry, hard stool. I love the Ayurveda concept.i hoped this would be what i needed. It worked the first time I drank it but nothing after that.Still looking for something :(
This product is great BUT what options are there for someone like myself who is sensitive to Licorice? I've used this 2 times with excellent effect, but I'm concerned about continued use because of my history with taking supplements with licorice.
