The Overnight Colon Cleanse Recipe

Natural, safe, fast, instant homemade colon detox benefits while you sleep.

The overnight colon cleanse recipe is one of the most effective natural remedies to quickly and safely cleanse accumulated waste buildup from the colon at home.

1. Why Cleansing The Colon?

Why Cleansing The Colon

Modern foods, diets and eating habits often lead to scenarios where the body can’t digest the foods properly. As a result the food can stay in the digestive tract for too long, even days, starts to ferment and accumulate.

Overtime this accumulated waste buildup becomes drier and harder and sticks to the colon wall to a point the body can’t eliminate it through normal bowel movements.

We all know the results: digestive issues such as bloating, excess gas, occasional constipation, and stomach pain. Many people also notice skin breakouts, fatigue, low energy, body odor, and many other unpleasant discomforts.

2. The Overnight Colon Cleanse

The overnight colon cleanse is based on Dr. Edward Group famous oxygen colon cleanse (oxy-powder).

Overnight Colon Cleanse Oxy-Powder
releases natural oxygen in the colon to loosen accumulated waste buildup. This allows the body to easily eliminate the waste though the stool.

Most people report a significant “relief” as they eliminate the stored waste buildup, often described as “feeling lighter”. In particular:

  • Noticeably flatter stomach and reduced bloating
  • More energy
  • Higher clarity
  • A clearer complexion
  • Better bowel movements and digestion, with many digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, body odor and gas greatly improved.

This is done in a completely natural and gentle way, and it has shown to be both effective and safe. For this reason, oxy-powder is the preferred choice of many natural health practitioners by itself to cleanse the colon, or to support other body cleanses.

The easiest way to take oxy-powder is by itself:

Take 4 capsules of oxy-powder with a big glass of water on an empty stomach before bedtime, away from any foods or other supplements.

3. The Next Day: What to Expect
Energy, Clarity, Better Digestion, Clear Complexion

Expect the next day to have 3-5 bowel movements. First time users usually report eliminating a large amount of stored waste.

“A great relief”
Most people start to feel a difference as they eliminate the stored waste buildup the next day. Feeling “lighter”, reduced bloating and gas, better bowel movements, with other digestive issues greatly improved.

Additional benefits people often report include more energy, better focus and mood, and a clearer complexion. 

These improvements are not surprising considering that this waste buildup weight may be 10-20 pounds and sometimes even more. When the body gets rid of such a burden, it has more energy and resources to perform better and to actually heal other areas which were neglected before.

If you do not achieve 3-5 bowel movements the next day, increase serving size by 2 capsules each night until you achieve 3-5 movements. You can continue with this amount for 5 more days. Always overnight, on an empty stomach, before bedtime.

4. The Colon Cleanse Drink Recipe

Gut Cleanse Drink

As a part of his ongoing research, Dr. Group developed the recipe below, that combines lemon juice and apple cider vinegar (ACV) with Oxy-powder.

So you get the oxygen colon cleanse benefits of Oxy-powder, with the natural detoxification and health benefits of ACV and lemon juice (see research below).

We get many questions on this topic, since not all people like the way apple cider vinegar or lemon in water taste like. To summarize:

  1. The lemon and apple cider vinegar are optional for the overnight colon cleanse.
  2. If you do enjoy these, make the overnight drink below and take with 4 capsules of oxy-powder before bedtime.
  3. If you are not a fan of the lemon or apple cider vinegar, just stick with the original colon cleanse recipe: take oxy-powder with water.

5. The Additional Ingredients In The Overnight Colon Cleanse Recipe

Lemon Juice

Drinking warm water with lemon juice is an ancient Ayurvedic practice to stimulate digestion and detox the body. The research data suggests that the citric acid and antioxidants in lemon juice may help to prevent kidney stones, regulate liver enzymes, and balance triacylglycerol and lipid peroxidation in the liver [1,2,3].

Apple cider vinegar

(ACV) on its raw unfiltered unpasteurized form, is well known for its natural ability to cleanse, detox and flush out toxins from the body. The cloudy part (the mother), has naturally occurring acids and good bacteria that can promote healthy digestion and gut health. According to research, apple cider vinegar may also protect and support the health of the kidneys and liver [4].

  • Before & during body cleanses:
    One of the main reason so many people experience a healing crisis during different body cleanses is store waste buildup. Accumulate waste in the colon can slow down the rate the body get rids of the toxins released during the cleanse.

7. Gut Health & Probiotics

Gut Health & Probiotics

When you remove waste buildup from the colon, you create an ideal environment in your gut that can encourage friendly probiotic growth, hence making probiotic supplements much more effective.

For this reason, we recommend to take your probiotics in the morning the next day. A good example of oxygen colon cleanse and probiotics we like to use, is Dr. Group Colon Cleanse Kit.

More than an instant colon flush

    I just found this recipe on the web and I do not have the oxy pills. Can you substitute for another colon cleanser pill?

    Hi I’m planning this but have no colon cleanser pills, is it okay to just have without the pills?

      Hi Sarah, thank you for your comment,

      The overnight colon cleanse recipe is designed to work with Oxy-powder (Ozonated Magnesium Oxides). Without Oxy-powder the recipe is still a great way to promote natural cleansing and detoxification, but it will not be able to dissolve accumulated waste in the intestines.
      Hope it helps.

      Hi Kelsey
      Colon cleanse benefits from the overnight flush may depend on many factors, such as your diet, food sensitivities, health status, etc. Most people benefit from doing a colon cleanse on an ongoing basis a few times a year as a part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. hope it helps.

  4. Hi. Will this help with clearing out helminths? I took a course of ivermectin for Covid but I have an infestation of helminths. My blood pressure shot up after three days and I had dizziness and confusion. I suspect this was due to parasite toxins being released.

  5. Why do I have to do the cleanse on an empty stomach? Am I not supposed to eat dinner? I have hypoglycemia and need to eat.
