 Twinlab Colon Care

Description


Twinlab's Colon Care is a gentle, all-natural formula designed to promote a healthy digestive tract safely and effectively. This supplement contains proven colon-enhancing ingredients psyllium fiber, barley-malt extract and probiotic bacteria. Twinlab's synergistic blend of nutrients work to keep the gastrointestinal (GI) system functioning smoothly and maintain digestive health.


Psyllium is a well-known natural fiber used for centuries in folk medicine to treat gastrointestinal problems such as constipation and hemorrhoids. Studies show that psyllium not only relieves constipation but also lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Furthermore, psyllium reduces symptoms of ulcerative colitis and is helpful for weight management.


Barley malt is a natural grain extract that promotes the healthful intestinal tract bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus (acidophilus) and Bidfidobacteria longus (bifidus). Both acidophilus and bifidus are classified as probiotic beneficial bacteria that help maintain a normal balance of healthy intestinal flora (bacteria). Research suggests that probiotics support digestion and immunity, while preventing the growth of harmful bacteria.


Taking a supplement such as Twinlab's Colon Care can help you maintain a healthy and optimally functioning digestive tract.



Pros


Twinlab states that the acidophilus and bifidus in Colon Care are the highest quality and stability. Colon Care includes specially selected, viable probiotic strains that are resistant to stomach acid, to survive passage through the Gi tract and maximally function in the colon. Each serving of Colon Care provides 1 billion live acidophilus and 1 billion live bifidus cells at the time of formulation.


Studies have found that the nutrients in Colon Care have numerous benefits including:

  • Maintains colon health
  • Promotes a healthy digestive tract
  • Aids in digestion and processing waste
  • Supports immune system function
  • Helpful for weight management
  • Safe and effective

Cons


For some consumers, Colon Care can become a pricey solution for long-term GI problems (such as chronic constipation). The recommended dosage is two tablespoonfuls (one serving) daily. Since there are 16 servings per container, the product lasts 16 days. However, Colon Care is a worthwhile option for those who don't mind paying a little more for a natural agent that safely and effectively supports a healthy digestive tract and promotes colon health.


Since psyllium is a fiber, it's important to drink plenty of water when taking psyllium. People with bowl obstruction or diabetics who have difficulty regulating their blood sugar should not take psyllium.


Probiotics are considered safe and are generally well tolerated. The most common side effects include mild stomach upset.


Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in Colon Care including:
  • Lithium
  • Mesalamine
  • Orlistat
  • Simvastatin
  • Statins
  • Sulfasalazine

Is it for you?

If you want to support and maintain a healthy and optimally functioning digestive tract and promote colon health, Twinlab's Colon Care is for you. However, people with bowl obstruction or diabetics who have difficulty regulating their blood sugar should not take Colon Care.

Colon Care is Good for Constipation

One of my greatest problem is constipation and I occasionally take this kind of colon cleansing psyllium fiber that really helps me a lot to have soft stool. Taking this colon care is really effective for me not to feel constipated. What is also good is this one helps me with my weight. I can feel that my belly is getting slim. Though, taking this psyllium fiber does take a lot of fluid intake for absorption.

And I know that if you want to detoxify, the first step is colon cleansing and this product is helpful in detoxifying our colon.
