The colon is a reflex organ. It is connected to all parts of the body so it is important that the colon does not start to weaken due to the build-up of waste material. Over time this can lead to sluggishness and the slowing down of other bodily functions. When this does occur, some symptoms may be coated tongue, dark circles under the eyes, brittle nails and hair, sallow complexion, abnormal body odor and fatigue. Even allergies, chronic headaches, irritability, nausea, asthma and indigestion can be indicators.
Ideally, a healthy colon will absorb water and help produce K and some B vitamins through the good bacteria in the body. When your digestive tract is healthy, it helps to support your immune system and maintain good health.
