These so called colon cleansers are a scam. The body cleans itself naturally with proper fiber and water. Take the other persons advice about the fiber. You should be getting at least 25 grams a day, perferably more like 35 per day. But don't forget water, without it the fiber will only make things worse.
Do a search on foods with fiber if you don't know which ones have the most. Also you'll want to make sure you get fiber from whole grains as well as fiber from fruits and veggies. Remember to eat the peels!
