How colon cleanse supplements actually work

Everyone and their mothers are talking about doing a colon cleanse after the holidays to flush out all the end-of-year ick. You take a couple of capsules of herbs, barks, and clays to poop out all your problems, but do you know how these colon cleanses actually work?

THE ANSWER

Step 1: Suck it up

Good colon cleanses have ingredients like Bentonite Clay that actually latches onto all your backed-up poop and drags it along.

Bentonite clay is known for absorbing and binding to toxins and impurities. When ingested, it can attract and bind to various substances, including heavy metals and other harmful compounds in the digestive tract.†

THE ANSWER

Step 2: Shake it out

Colon cleanses stimulate a process called peristalsis - which is the rhythmic contraction and relaxation of your intestinal muscles. This essentially vibrates your intestines to make your bowels move things along.†

So colon cleanses latch onto your poop and then stimulate micro-movements of your intestines, resulting in the giant bowel movements we’re all ashamed to admit we love.

Looking to see this process in action? Try zuPOO by UMZU - a 7-day natural colon cleanse containing Bentonite Clay built to help you flush out your gut and start fresh.

All I can say is you better invest in a family pack of some high-quality toilet paper before you start taking this. Seriously, you are not ready for what is about to come out of you...
