Are any of the colon cleansing products safe to take, and do

Resolved Question:

Are any of the colon cleansing products safe to take, and do they really work? Two specifically for example are Evercleanse and Bromalite. Are they safe to take with other prescription medications like high blood pressure meds and cholesteral meds?

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. The only time it is ever necessary or useful to clean a colon is when a medical procedure like a colonoscopy must be done. The cleansing products are nothing more than strong laxatives which are not healthy or necessary on a routine basis. The colon cleans itself in the normal course of digestion. Rushing food, medications, etc. through the digestive system interferes with proper absorption of regular medications as well as vitamins.
