Since ancient times, people in Greece have been performing colon cleanses in order to improve overall health and to boost the function of the colon as well.
Unfortunately, nowadays, people tend to consume undigested food, especially meats which cause an accumulation of mucus in the colon. As a result of that toxins are produced in the body thus leading to headache, fatigue, weight gain and low energy levels.
The best thing you can do in order to prepare a colon cleanse is to add food which is high in fiber and nutrient that will replace the eliminated toxins.
The consumption of apples will provide you the feeling of satiety and it will help you with loose stools since they are high in fiber. Moreover, they also contain insoluble fiber which helps in the bowel movements, add bulk to stool and relieves from constipation.

Besides fiber, they are abundant in vitamins and nutrients as well which when ingested, get absorbed by the body. Their consumption will help you lose some extra pounds since they keep you full throughout the day.
When it comes to flax seeds, they are also high in fiber which enhances the absorption of nutrients by the intestines and delay gastric emptying. Moreover, they also have the ability to prevent colon cancer. Due to their powerful antioxidant properties, flax seeds can prevent heart diseases as well. at last but not least, flax seeds are a rich source of heart-healthy Omega-3s.
