Colon Cleansing, Diet and Weight Loss

Overweight? You may want to get your colon checked


Herbal colon cleansing products, such as Intra Cleanse from Herbal Groups, may help you lose weight. This is particularly important for colon health, considering that a recent study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology showed that overweight and obese individuals may have a higher risk of colon polyps, known as adenomas.

"Because there is a known association between obesity and cancer, there is a logical extension to expect a connection between obesity and the step before cancer, which is adenoma," said Hutan Ashrafian from Imperial College, London, who co-authored the study, quoted by the news source.

The scientists analyzed data from 23 studies involving more than 100,000 individuals to come to their conclusion. Overall, the researchers found that 22 percent of overweight and obese people had colon polyps, compared to 19 percent in people of normal weight.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one-third of Americans are obese, and these findings suggest that these individuals may have a higher risk of developing colon polyps. These results should encourage individuals to take an herbal diet supplement or an herbal colon cleansing product to help them lose weight.
