About Colon Flow
Colon Flow is an “As Seen on TV” herbal cleansing formula that is claimed to help remove excess waste and toxins from your colon, resulting in increased energy and regularity, as well as “a boost to your wellbeing.”
Colon Flow is manufactured in the USA by Natural Health Network, based out of Brea, CA, and holds an A rating with the Better Business Bureau. Regarding Colon Flow specifically, online reviews appear to be primarily negative, with the most common complaints citing failure to work, difficulty un-enrolling from the autoship program, and poor customer service.
How Colon Flow Works
According to the Colon Flow website, in its ideal state, your body naturally digests food in an efficient manner. However, over time mucus can build up in your colon, which produces a toxin that can ultimately enter your bloodstream. When this occurs, it is known as “autointoxication.” Some symptoms of autointoxication include upset stomach, constipation, excess gas, and intestinal discomfort.
To help prevent this from occurring, Colon Flow uses an all-natural formula to remove excess waste and toxins from your colon. As a result, you’ll experience “increased healthy energy,” a boost to your wellbeing, and regular elimination. Unlike other colon cleansing supplements though, Colon Flow is claimed to never cause cramping or sudden rushes to the restroom.
The Colon Flow website claims that the supplement is comprised of 11 natural ingredients, though none of these ingredients are listed. However, during our research we found these ingredients to include:
- Cascara Sagrada Bark
- Cape Aloe
- Psyllium Seed
- Psyllium Husk
- Apple Fruit Pectin
- Slippery Elm
When you first begin taking Colon Flow, you should start with a 7-day cycle by taking 1-2 capsules in the evening with food, and 8oz of water. From there, you’ll increase the dosage by one capsule per day until “you reach your desired results.” Afterward, you’ll then decrease to the minimum amount necessary. Finally, take a break for a day or two, and then restart another 7-day cycle if necessary.

Bottom Line – What's the take on Colon Flow?
According to online sources, “No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing, and it "has no known medical value and risks damage to the rectum or bowel." The bowel itself is "not dirty” and, unless disease or medication interfere, "nature does a fine job of clearing out wastes."
Because of this, we would recommend avoiding Colon Cleanse. However, if you plan on taking the supplement, be sure to consult with your physician in advance.
