Is the Ultimate Colon Care Formula a safe and reliable way

Is the Ultimate Colon Care Formula a safe and reliable way to promote intestinal health?
Hello from JA
Which ultimate colon care formula
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
True Health - Dr. Cutler's Ultimate Colon Care Formula
CAn you list the ingredients off the bottle?
The ingredients listed ..enzymes, etc, and a proprietary ingredient that we don't even know about, in now way are proven to help the colon.

Have you had a colonoscopy?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I have had several.
Any findings?
When was the last one?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I had polyps removed several years ago.

So the first order of business is to follow up with colonoscopy as instructed by the GI doctor...usually that is within 3 years after polyps are removed.

Secondly, I don't see anything in the product you mention that is going to help your colon.
This product also made false claims that the mayo clinic endorsed the product. Mayo did not . So, in fact, all I see is marketing and in one instance false marketing.

For colon health from a scientific basis.
A. Use a nutrient dense diet. See the book Eat to Live , by Dr. Joel Fuhrman for the diet.
B. Use a product called ColonCare by TwinLab, which has soluble fiber and pre-biotics.
C. Take pro-biotics, whether that is from organic high quality yogurt or probiotics pills.

The diet in particular has a lot of evidence for colon health and cancer prevention.
