Colon Nourish is a well known gentle herbal colon cleanser and natural bowel support combination, based on a formula by master herbalist, Dr. John R. Christopher.
Popular with colonic hydrotherapists, Colon Nourish contains a range of active herbal ingredients which help to cleanse the intestinal tract, soften the stool, stimulate the liver and improve peristalsis. This, in turn, helps to produce bowel movements and expel layers of old encrusted mucus and faecal matter that may have accumulated over time.
It acts to gently cleanse, stimulate and tone the bowel wall and supporting a move towards unassisted bowel movements.

Rhubarb: A strong herbal laxative, rhubarb is astringent-bitter, gastric stimulant, anti-inflammatory, stomach tonic and antiseptic. It is also used for disorders of the liver, gallbladder and stomach.
Burdock Root: Burdock is one of the most potent tonics in herbalism. It contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, including fatty acids, organic acids, phenolic acids, lignans, sesquiterpenes, tannin, mucilage and inulin (a prebiotic), along with iron, sulphur and B-vitamins. Widely used to support liver function and as a cleansing botanical.
Cayenne Pepper: A hot herb rich in vitamins A, B6, C, E, riboflavin, potassium and manganese. It also contains the active ingredient capsaicin, which is a natural detox agent and supports healthy blood flow, a healthy metabolism, digestion, gastrointestinal secretions and acts as an anti-spasmodic for relief of pain and as a carminative.
Fennel Seed: Traditionally been used as a culinary herb because of its aroma and anise type flavour, but it has also become a popular component of colon cleansing programmes because it supports the body’s natural elimination of excess waste and toxins from the colon and a healthy acid/alkaline balance. It is also a gentle digestive and carminative herb, used to counteract flatulence, disperse windy colic and alleviate intestinal spasms, griping and irritable bowel.
Ginger Root: Used for centuries to support a healthy gastrointestinal tract and efficient digestion. It alleviates occasional gas, bloating and nausea and is known as a ‘hot bitter’ herb which promotes gastric acidity. It is used for many stomach conditions and has anti-inflammatory, carminative, anti-spasmodic, expectorant, vasodilator and circulatory stimulant actions. Gingerol, a compound in ginger, is also a powerful antioxidant.
Glucomannan: A water-soluble polysaccharide that is classed as a form of soluble dietary fibre and is usually derived from konjac root. As such, it is widely used for the treatment of constipation, because it can decrease digestive transit time and is viewed as a “bulk-forming laxative”.
Aloe Vera Leaf: Best known for its soothing and calming properties and containing 18 amino acids and vitamins, it also helps decrease toxins, acts as an antioxidant and supports intestinal integrity and natural cleansing.
Liquorice Root: Stimulates the production of digestive fluids and bile, soothes ulcers, helps reduce intestinal inflammation, and supports the healthy function of the kidneys, liver and bladder. Its action in soothing ulcers is unique. Rather than inhibit the release of acid, licorice stimulates the normal defense mechanisms that prevent ulcer formation. Specifically, licorice improves both the quality and quantity of the protective substances that line the intestinal tract; increases the life span of the intestinal cell; and improves blood supply to the intestinal lining.
Barberry Bark: A natural helper for digestive complaints and also supports the liver, gallbladder and spleen. Its active ingredients are the isoquinolone alkaloids, particularly berberine. It also has an antiseptic and antibacterial effect when taken orally, useful against dysbiosis. Stimulates bile flow, eases liver congestion and is ideal for an inflamed gallbladder and intestinal inflammation.
Dandelion Root: A naturally rich source of vitamins A, C, D and B complex vitamins, as well as minerals such as iron, potassium and zinc. It has traditionally been used to support healthy fluid balance in the body and as a natural helper for the digestive system. It also provides support for the liver and gallbladder, by helping to clear toxins. The root is a bitter tonic and pancreatic regulator, which also offers spleen support and promotes bile flow.
