The function of the colon is to get rid of food left over after the nutrients are removed from it, other waste and bacteria. The process is called peristalsis and it can take around 36 hours. When the waste is passing through the colon, liquid and salt are removed first. Billions of bacteria coat the colon, living in a healthy balance with the body.
There is no miracle recipe which will restore the functions of the colon, the only method which will promote its smooth operation is a healthy diet.
