What else can you do to enhance colon health?
What you eat - not what you flush through your colon - may have the greatest impact on colon health, lowering your risk of colon cancer and enhancing your overall health.
Increasing fibre can help with a wide range of gastrointestinal problems, including constipation, diverticular disease, and help to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. Ideally you should eat 30 grams of fibre each day. Add sources of both insoluble fibre, such as cereal and whole grains, and soluble fibre, such as bran, fruit, vegetables, and oatmeal.
Also, drink plenty of fluids, but only drink alcohol in moderation. Avoid tobacco and limit red meat. Take up invitations for NHS bowel cancer screening.
