Colon cleansing has become popular lately by claiming to eliminate years of accumulated waste in the body. In general, the kidney and liver efficiently eliminates toxins and regular bowel movements remove waste without the aid of colon cleansers.

The intestines absorb nutrients from the bloodstream, so cleansing out the intestinal tract could affect this absorption and lead to vitamin deficiency. It's better to eat plenty of fiber and drink water rather than do a colon cleanse.
