Does green tea help cleanse your colon?

No evidence for this: Caffeine is a potent stimulator of smooth muscle and may, therefore, have an impact on bowel function. One observational study showed that coffee consumption had some effect on constipation. However, japanese and chinese teas may have components that mitigate this effect of caffeine.

I purchased tea for colon cleanse is that safe?

Likely just laxative: Most of these teas contain senna (cascara), which is a natural stimulant laxative. It is fine to use once in a while for occasional constipation, but chronic use can cause your colon to become dependent on the chemical to move at all. There really isn't anything in there "cleansing" your colon. Just making you have a bowel movement. ...Read more

Do not waste your money on colon cleansing or risk your health for that matter. ...Read more

Is it ok to use a slim tea diet for over a year. Will it cause colon or stomach problem.Thanks?

Not likely : Usually, depending on the brand, the slim tea, basically has senna, which is a herbal laxative. So it is relatively safe. Don't over do it. If you want to lose weight, perhaps a protein based diet with multiple small meals a day, along with a good exercise program will work wonders for you, much more than this tea. ...Read more

Not a fan: I am not a fan of these techniques. Your colon is made to handle a high bacterial load and eliminate wastes. Proper nutrition and a high fiber diet with good hydration help it to work better in doing this. Aggressive cleanses can upset electrolyte balance and lead to colon irritation as well as upset normal bacterial flora (and lead to things like c-difficile colitis). ...Read more
