Five Helpful Colon Cleansing Foods

Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN & Amy Coates, RHN, BSc.

It is good to understand that there are foods that help in colon cleansing as well as those that clog your colon.

Therefore, colon cleansing is all about eating the right kind of foods – those that’ll flush out the dirt from your colon, not the ones that will clog it.

The foods that cleanse your body are those that digest fast and release energy into the system.

We shall be considering the five helpful colon cleansing foods in the rest of this article:

  1. fresh fruits

  2. vegetables

  3. raw food diet

  4. grains

  5. meat


  • They are low fat nutrients foods

  • Easily digestible

  • As they digest, they mop up sticky materials from the walls of the colon

  • Regarded as natural cleanser because they are traditionally known to cleanse the colon

  • More effective when taken before any other meal especially when taken in the morning


  • More effective for colon cleansing when taken raw

  • Great source of alkalinity and both soluble and insoluble fiber


  • Recommended for longer period of cleansing

  • Does not require herbal supplements

  • Can be a combination of fruits and vegetables and their juices

  • May include raw seeds and grains in addition to fruits and vegetables

  • It’s a very reliable cleansing method


  • Don’t eat pasta during colon cleansing because they may “punctuate” your natural cleansing process

  • They slow down cleansing process

  • Examples include some whole grain sprouted breads, quinoa, wild or basmati rice, and amaranth


  • Meats don’t have any cleansing effect on the colon and they can be ignored during colon cleansing. Furthermore, a diet high in meat is linked to colorectal cancer.

  • If you need to eat meat, then make sure it’s organic. Stick to free-run chicken and wild fish if possible.

Fibres in general are very useful in colon cleaning, and that’s why fruits and vegetables constitute the best colon cleansers.

Dietary fiber has many health benefits, and they are divided into two: Insoluble and soluble fibers

Insoluble Fiber

  • Help with bowel function and colon cancer

  • Eases passage

  • Enhances the gastrointestinal tract muscles

  • Decreases transit time

  • Makes stool soft and larger

  • Prevents compaction

Soluble Fiber

  • Soluble fibre binds acids from bile as well as carcinogenic substances

  • Slow down the rate at which food leaves the stomach
