COLFIX colon cleanse by XBrain contains all natural botanical ingredients that may aid in maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract. COLFIX contains Aloe vera, Rhubarb root, Barberry Bark powder, Cayenne powder, Dandelion root, Fennel seed powder, Ginger root powder, Raspberry leaf powder and glucomannan.
The main bioactive component in Aloe is anthraquinone which has the ability to enhance peristalsis.
The tannins in Rhubarb root act as an astringent that has the ability to kill pathogens in the gut. Barberry bark powder contains berberine, a bitter alkaloid, that helps to regulate digestive processes.
Cayenne powder contains capsaicin which interacts with the gut nervous system by activating transient receptor potential (TRP) channel subunits which is involved with taste, chemesthesis, mechanosensation and pain in the gut that regulates gut motility, absorptive and secretory processes. Dandelion root contains the bitter taraxacin that stimulates digestion processes by binding to taste buds and sending signals to the central nervous system.
This enhances appetite and ultimately improves absorption of nutrients and removal of wastes. Fennel seeds contain the bitter fenchone which enhances secretion of digestive enzymes and stimulates peristalsis.
Ginger has a number of bioactive components, but it is known for its anti-emetic properties (inhibits nausea and vomiting) by increasing motility and fecal transport by the bioactive molecule 6-gingerol. This molecule binds to 5-HT3 receptors (serotonin receptors) in the ileum and elsewhere.
Raspberry leaf contains high concentrations of tannins that sour mucus secretions and contract cell membranes (astringent quality) in the wall of the lumen. This reduces inflammation and calms the gut lining. Glucomannan is a form of soluble fiber that absorbs water and forms a gel around material in the gut which effectively adds water to fecal material (looser stools. This also traps toxins and removes excess mucus effectively flushing out the system.
COLFIX colon cleanse by Xbrain is contained within vegetable cellulose capsules which is suitable for vegans.
