Also known as the “Colon Cleanser” this diet contributes to the overall health and wellbeing of the body.
The colon, or large intestine, removes water, salt and certain nutrients that form the stool. A colon that´s not working properly holds onto waste.
The body should process food in 24 hours but modern living means we can lack essential nutrients that slow it down, keeping kilos of food in our guts leading to everything from constipation to colon cancer.
A clean colon pushes undigested waste straight through, improving digestion; it clears constipation, it rejuvenates the body, releasing toxins and increasing energy. It´s been shown to improve concentration and help with weight loss. It can also aid fertility, getting rid of the unwanted chemicals that damage semen and ova. Not to mention the benefits to skin, hair and nails.
When impurities are removed from the inside it shows on the outside.
This is a once in a while detox, it´s a program of 10-14 days developed by Stanley Burroughs in 1940. He called it the Master Cleanse diet but it´s now known as the Beyoncé Diet after one of its more famous fans.
