How would you like to poop and lose 20 pounds? You might think it’s funny but that’s how much toxic waste the average American has sitting in their colon.
It’s more than just added weight, though. When the colon does not function properly, it begins to absorb toxins instead of eliminating them, thereby causing problems like headaches, bloating, constipation, gas, weight gain, low energy, fatigue, and chronic illnesses.
These problems can also be caused by undigested foods (most foods that we eat today are loaded with additives, preservatives and other chemicals) that leads to a buildup of mucus in the colon, producing toxins that poison the body. Moreover, it negatively impacts gut bacteria, making it difficult to lose weight.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to help alleviate discomfort associated with toxins and digestion issues in the body, such as a homemade colon cleanse.
Today, we are going to present you one homemade colon cleanse remedy, which is based on two natural ingredients – chia seeds and lemon.
Lemon has antioxidant properties and its high vitamin C content is good for the digestive system. Hence, lemon juice can be used for colon cleansing.
On the other hand, chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and natural fibers, thus adding chia seeds to your diet is a great way to cleanse your colon. Chia seeds will absorb water and expand in the colon and will assist in removing toxins and mucus as the waste matter passes through. In addition, chia seeds will help prevent cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
- A tablespoon of chia seeds
- One tablespoon organic lemon juice
- A tablespoon of raw, organic honey

Put the chia seeds in a glass of water and let them stay for a least an hour. Then, remove them from the water and mix them with the other ingredients. Blend them for few seconds and it is ready. Drink this powerful natural remedy to deflate the belly every morning on an empty stomach.
