Most of the health benefits and nutrients aloe vera is known for, are found in the inner leaf which is latex free.

The Evidence : Ingredients Analysis
Ginger, lemon, and raw honey offer many health benefits that have both long traditional use and published studies.
When it comes to colon cleanse and detox:
Ginger is well known as a natural traditional remedy for digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, indigestion, nausea and vomiting. 1
Lemon is a very popular detox ingredient you can see in almost any cleansing recipe. Drinking warm water with lemon juice in the morning is an ancient Ayurvedic practice to stimulate digestion and detox the body. According to research, lemon juice may have a protective effect on the liver. The data suggests that lemon juice can reduce the levels of serum ALT and AST liver enzymes as well as triacylglycerol and lipid peroxidation in the liver.2
Raw Honey is added to the recipe to sweeten and complement the ginger – lemon flavor. Some evidence suggests that honey may help as a natural remedy for constipation, worm infestation, ulcers and other digestive issues.3
Colon Cleanse Tea Reviews
Most of the reviews include better digestion, with digestive issues such as bloating, excess gas and constipation get better. As a result, many people also notice a flatter stomach. This is very apparent in a lot of the before and after pictures, after a week of drinking the tea.
Many people who try this colon cleanse tea also reported mild weight loss. This weight however, is not fat. It is simply the stored waste that is being flushed out of the body.
The Problem With Colon Cleanse Teas
The difference between laxative teas to colon cleanse teas
Most colon cleanse teas you buy at the store include herbs that have laxative properties. So they can trigger bowel movements. Many of these herbs are safe, gentle and have a long history of safe traditional use. Some of these herbs however, may be to aggressive for many people.
This is a common misconception about colon cleansing and the cause of many issues and side effects many people experience:
Strong bowel movements do not mean effective colon cleansing. An Effective colon cleansing means that you help your body to naturally eliminate toxins and stored waste buildup from the colon. Two different things.
Laxative Teas Risks
A common problem with laxative and colon cleanse teas is that they include many ingredients together. So there may be interactions between ingredients. You may be sensitive to just one ingredients. It is very hard to test all these different possibilities of herbs.
The solution: Simplicity. There’s really no need to combine so many herbs or ingredients for an effective colon cleansing.
You can see many of the laxatives herbs in both colon cleanse teas and colon cleanse products. This list of laxative herbs may include: Senna, Marshmallow root, Rhubarb, Aloe vera latex, Cascara sagrada, Psyllium seeds and more.
Ongoing use of laxatives, even natural ones, may cause laxatives dependency. This means you won’t be able to make regular bowel movements without the use of laxatives. For this reason, if you enjoy drinking herbal tea every day, we highly recommend to make sure it does not contain laxative herbs.

The Nutrients In The Detox Salad
As you can see, when you eat the detox salad, you get a lot of nutrients.
But what about all these calories? Should you eat the detox salad as one meal, or should you eat it multiple times throughout the day? Are all these fats in the salad good for me? Here is a summary of our answers to the FAQ:
One big meal vs. smaller frequent meals: Listen to your body. Some people enjoy eating big meals. Others may prefer to eat smaller frequent meals.
Serving Size: if this is the first time you make this recipe, start by eating half the serving, and see how it makes you feel. You may find that you only need half a serving.
Calories: Take into consideration the overall calories. The idea is to replace unhealthy meals with healthy options such as this recipe.
Weight loss: The detox salad recipe will make you feel full and satisfied for many hours. So you may find that you need to eat less overall.
Fat Content: If you wonder about the fat content of this recipe, these are all healthy essential fats on their natural raw state. The recipe is rich in omega 3 (6.2 grams) and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) which are linked to many health benefits.
Ingredients Analysis: Colon Cleansing Foods
The foods you see in this recipe have a long list of health benefits, supported by a traditional use and many studies. In the analysis below, we focused on the main benefits that are more related to colon cleansing and detoxification.
Cabbage, Beets, Carrots: Brooms Inside Your Colon
Raw non-starchy vegetables such as cabbage, beets and carrots are rich in insoluble fiber. This fiber doesn’t dissolve in water, and can pass through the gut largely intact. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the stool which can help to promote regular healthy bowel movement.
Think about insoluble fiber as rough brooms inside your colon that grabs accumulated waste buildup and toxins on their way out.
Some people who don’t enjoy raw beets, prefer to make a coleslaw version, and stick with the cabbage and carrots without the beets. Other common suggestions we get include adding fresh green herbs.
We highly encourage you to experiment and use different raw non-starchy vegetables you enjoy.
The lemon – apple cider vinegar – olive oil combination is a very popular healthy salad dressing. It tastes great and can help the body to naturally detox and cleanse.
Lemon juice is well known for its ability to stimulate healthy digestion and to naturally detox and cleanse the body. Lemon also helps to balance the flavor of the other ingredients.
Apple cider vinegar on its raw unfiltered unpasteurized form can help the body to remove toxins at a faster rate. In addition, raw apple cider vinegar has naturally occurring acids and good bacteria (“the mother”) that can promote healthy digestion and gut health. The mother is the cloudy part you see at the bottom of the bottle.
Olive oil is one of the best tasting oils with natural colon cleansing properties: it lubricates the bowels which can add moisture to the stool, and increases the production of certain digestive enzymes which can help promote healthy digestion.
Hemp Seeds : Turn a Salad Into a Meal
We added raw hemp seeds to boost the nutrients in the detox salad. This is the part that turns the colon cleanse recipe from a salad into a complete meal. Hemp seeds make a good source of protein, healthy omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. Hemp seeds also add a pleasant nutty flavor & fluffy texture.
Many people are surprised to learn how much nutrients they get when they eat seeds. Here’s an example of the main nutrients you get when you add 2 oz of hemp seeds:
19 grams of protein.
6 grams of omega 3.
Over 80% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, and Manganese.
Less than 1 grams of net carbs.
Other options of healthy raw fresh nuts and seeds (ideally sprouted) work as well, so feel free to experiment. Based on our testing and reviews we got over the years, many people love the sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds with this recipe.
Cayenne peppers are well known for their many health benefits, especially as a natural way that may help to stimulate healthy digestion, control inflammation and promote healthy blood circulation.
Eating hot spicy peppers however, may also cause issues to some people that have sensitivity to spicy foods, or to the nightshade vegetables. If this is you, do not include cayenne peppers in the recipe.
Garlic : Natural Parasite Cleanse
The main reason we like to add garlic to the detox salad is due to its natural antibacterial, antimicrobial and parasite cleansing properties.
When you cleanse your colon, your body may also flush harmful organisms and intestinal parasites. While this may not be the most pleasant topic people like to share, it is very common. For this reason, you may want to combine some sort of antiparasitic support as a part of the colon cleanse.
Raw garlic makes a great choice to get started. Pumpkin seeds are also known to have a natural antiparasitic properties.
If intestinal parasites are a concern to you, or if you consider doing a parasite cleanse, you may want to also look into antiparasitic herbs such as clove, wormwood and black walnut which are much stronger.
Pink Himalayan Salt
Last but not least – we added the pink himalayan salt for both flavor and the naturally occurring electrolytes and trace minerals. (Much healthier than table salt that is heavily refined with most of the trace minerals removed during the process).

Juices Recipes For Colon Cleanse
Ingredients: lemon, ginger, apple cider vinegar, aloe-vera, carrot, apple, orange.
Main Benefit: Fast Colon Cleanse. The main thing to remember when you make juices for cleansing the colon, is how juicing works.
Juicing breaks down veggies and fruits into fiber and juice. You drink the juice and sometimes pulp without the fiber. When you remove the fiber, the juice offers a fast and easy way your body can assimilate and utilize the nutrients.
Remember to get your fiber. This instant acting main benefit of juices for colon cleanse, also presents a challenge. Fiber, especially insoluble fiber plays a key role in gut health, and offers a very effective natural way to cleanse your colon. More than that, fiber is needed to promote healthy digestion. For this reason, we highly recommend to make sure you also get enough fiber from whole foods throughout the day.
Important: It is best to get your daily fiber from real foods, not from supplements. Colon cleanse products that contain processed fiber such as Psyllium Husk, flaxseed powder and others should not come instead of fiber from whole foods.
If you are looking for ideas how to include more fiber in your diet, see the detox salad colon cleanse recipe.
Watch For Sugars! Juicing fruits and even veggies such as carrots may cause high sugars spike. If this is a concern to you, you may want to consider to avoid high sugar content foods when you make your juices, or use other colon cleanse recipes such as teas or meals.
