As we are living in 21st century, we are surrounded by all kinds of junk foods. Though we are leaving relatively healthy life, modern culture with modern dietary habits (lacking in dietary fibers) put enough pressure on our body and therefore can cause our colon, intestine, and bowel to become sluggish and accumulate toxins.

Try to avoid coffee (contains caffeine) as much as possible from your regular diet. It can cause chemical changes in the brain and brings about drowsiness by lowering nerve cell activity. When we feel tired adenosine triggers the brain to slow down its activity and therefore we feel sleepy. It is adenosine that decides and tells our brain as when to sleep and when not to sleep.

When we take coffee, caffeine constituents blocks the effects of adenosine by occupying the adenosine receptor sites and preventing the brain from seeing it. So, though you are tired you wont feel tiredness. It feels good but it actually degrades our body’s digestive system by producing toxins. Instead you can opt for herbal tea that not only hydrate the body but also provide detox benefits effects as well.

Fiber – The important requirement by the body to check the smooth working of colon and bowel. It is the part of plant-based foods that our body normally can’t digest. Though it passes through our digestive track, it doesn’t provide any nutrition or calories, yet constitute a healthy part of our diet. So, it is essential to increase the amount fibers in our regular diet.

Some Examples of Fibers Rich Foods are:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Brown rice
  • Wholegrain (such as Wheat, Barley, and Oats)
  • Legumes (Such as Peas, Dry beans, and Lentils)

There are Two types of Fibers:

  1. Soluble
  2. Insoluble

Both soluble and insoluble fiber is important for our diet. It is the fiber that keeps our bowel movements regular and fends off certain diseases. Carcinogens present in our intestines bind with the fiber and move through our colon more rapidly than the expected speed, thereby reducing the risk of colon cancer. It is Fiber that helps in transporting cholesterol out of our body, therefore reducing the risk of heart diseases. It has been estimated that more than 35 percent of Indian population lacks dietary fibers and is therefore a main cause of colon malfunctioning.

In order to increase the dietary fiber in your diet, it is suggested to take psyllium Husks as it contain both soluble and insoluble fibers and is easily digested by the body. It is also suggested to perform regular exercise as it makes the organs healthier and active thereby increasing the rate of toxin discharge.

It is always recommended to start your day with a glass of warm water as it goes directly to the intestine, bowel and colon thereby encouraging a systematic and proper bowel movement.
