Ayurveda Colon Cleanser - How Does It Work?

Colon cleansing is the method of cleaning the colon and the intestines. They happen naturally in the body.

As a result due to lack of fibres, they can not be efficiently driven out of the body in the bowel movements that happen daily on a regular basis. Many persons consider themselves very fit and fine when they consume high priced quality foods that are very rich in vitamins and minerals. But these processed foods lack the fibres that are also equally essential for the healthy body.
