Hi I take my contraceptive pill at approx 7pm, I want to take aloe Vera colon cleanse tablets and it is to be taken Before bed, will the pill work?

Obviously, the later the better. My questions is why are u using an Aloe Vera colon cleanse tablet? Eating a high fiber healthy diet, exercising regularly and drinking plenty of water is a better way to keep ur colon clean ...Read more

What do you suggest if I would like to try the green coffee bean extract, but do I need a colon cleanse for it to work?

Myths and Fraud: First. Green Coffee Bean is not in any way a product that will lead you to real or lasting weight loss. In fact it may be proven to be a completely fraudulent product soon. Save your money. Second you do not need, ever, a colon cleanse. In fact I do not know of any physician that would recommend such. Your colon is already designed to be a waste eliminator or 'cleanser' for your body. ...Read more

When I take colon cleanse to use the bathroom I'm good but when I stop I'm constipation?

Use sparingly: The problem with many cleanses is that they can work in the same way as laxatives. Unfortunately, your body begins to depend on their use, for bowel movements. As a result, constipation is common, when you stop. A good approach might be to cut down on the cleanses while you increase your intake of fruits, and vegetables and fiber. Drink lots of, water. Adding so, e movement would also, help. ...Read more

What is a colon cleanse?

You don't need it: Your colon keeps itself clean naturally. If someone tells you that you may feel sick because of "toxic bowel settlement" or something similar and that you need a fancy laxative or bizarre enema, ignore that person. Please be careful. If you buy into the idea of needing to do weird things to "cleanse" yourself, you'll never feel well again. Find an evidence-based holist instead. Best wishes. ...Read more

It doesn't.: The idea of colon cleansing is based on a misunderstanding of anatomy & physiology. Your colon is actually outside of you.
