THE COLON

Structure

The Colon or large intestine is approximately 5 feet in an adult.  Consisting of the caecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon and rectum 

Function

The Colon is responsible for forming, storing and expelling waste matter along with a number of important, but lesser known functions..

Downside

Various health problems occur in the colon when impacted fecal matter and toxins are allowed to remain in the intestines for a long period of time...they're not being eliminated properly

Impact

Diseases of the body's elimination system are common in developed countries--Colorectal cancer, polyps, 
ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, 
Irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease...

Constipation

Constipation occurs when there is abnormally delayed or infrequent passage of bowel movements

Bloating

Feel like it's time to deflate? You might blame it on retaining water, but the truth is that most bloating is caused by gas.

Fibre

Fibre is basically an indigestible (and therefore calorie-free) complex carbohydrate found in fruits, vegetables and grains.
