What you might be facing is the case of lingering poop, and as funny as it sounds, it’s actually no laughing matter.

While you might be questioning yourself and your digestive system, we have good news for you – it’s not your fault.

Your body is an amazing machine that needs fuel to run. For the body to work properly, there’s a series of things that need to happen:

  • The body signals that it needs food.
  • The bacteria in your digestive system process the food you give it.
  • Your digestive and bowel system gets rid of all the leftovers and everything that your body is unable to process.

These things should keep happening your entire life – until they just, don’t.

People continue to have problems due to their bodies not working the way they’re supposed to:

The process gets stuck at step 2, without reaching the phase where your body gets rid of all the lingering, harmful, and unprocessable buildup leftover from the digestive process.

There’s no nice way to say this, 1 in 5 of the people reading this is full of poop! According to Brenner and Shaw, 20% of Americans suffer from chronic constipation1.

Feeling full and constipated is difficult, both mentally and physically.

You might be uncomfortable both on the bowl and off it. There’s the obvious blockage in your rectum and the feeling as if you’re not emptying yourself completely, as recognized by the Mayo Clinic2.

Hands on the belly

You might also be suffering from stomach aches, cramps, bloating, and nausea, which are symptoms attributed to constipation by the Cleveland Clinic3.

Your poopy gut might also be causing you mental issues. You’re more likely to have anxiety and depression if you’re chronically constipated4

It may also be making you feel sluggish5, difficult for you to concentrate6, or you might be procrastinating more7. You might also find yourself staring at your ceiling at night, unable to sleep8.

And if you’re trying to lose weight, you won’t be too happy stepping on your scale and seeing no change after days of watching what you eat and staying in a caloric deficit!

You may be tempted to skip your workout due to the severe discomfort and fatigue you face.

By now, you should be pretty concerned with the content of your intestines and how to get it out, but first, you need to understand the process behind it.

Why Is This Happening?

You’re not feeling heavy because you’re not moving enough or not eating clean enough. 

Constipation isn’t something you did to yourself.

Your digestive system refusing to complete the cycle regularly and in a timely manner is not just its stubbornness either!

The answer is pretty simple – it’s the food we all eat9.

Unfortunately, your body is not accustomed to eating the diet we all do these days10.

Most Americans are lacking in nutrients that are essential to the healthy functioning of our guts and our bodies.

The most important nutrient for our gut health and the functioning of our digestive system, which, according to Harvard Medical School, is closely connected to our brain11, is fiber12.

Even if your gut is sending you signals, making you crave carrots and salads, the fiber you’re consuming is not enough to help your gut work properly.

The standard American diet consists of:

  • Fried foods
  • Grain-based desserts
  • High-fat dairy
  • Processed foods
  • Processed meat
  • Refined grains

And, of course,

  • Sugar-sweetened beverages13

Unsurprisingly, none of the foods above have the required fiber to keep your gut healthy.

The bacteria in your gut is incapable of processing the food you’re supplying it with, leaving you with toxic poop stuck in your gut for days or even weeks at a time.

This might leave you with uncomfortable feelings of bloating, constipation, and heaviness. 
Another feeling you might have recognized since your diet doesn’t leave you full and satiated – cravings for very salty, sweet, oily, or crunchy foods14.

Food plate

This is your body getting confused by the food you’re trying to feed it.

But don’t be discouraged; even though our current diet might not be the same as 100 years ago, the food is still good to eat!

Now that you know that your digestive cycle is getting stuck by the food you eat, the most straightforward way to fix it would be to swear off food altogether.

But that’s not sustainable, nor is it possible!

However, there is a workaround that will help, and that’s teaching your gut to process the food correctly, and only take what it needs, discarding the rest as waste.

So How Do I Teach My Gut to Stop Holding on to Lingering Poop?

If you want your digestive system to complete the cycle it’s meant to go through every single time, you’re going to want to load up on fiber and give your gut all the help it needs to work properly15.

But the problem with fiber is that people either eat too much of it or not enough at all, and it’s extremely hard to balance out your fiber intake. 

An unbalanced fiber intake can just keep perpetuating your issues with intestinal gas, abdominal bloating, cramping16, and constipation17.

Digestive system visual

The issue with most constipation products is that they contain lots of laxatives, which may be harmful to you if used excessively, and will cause dehydration18

Overuseage of laxatives causes even more constipation because your colon gets lazy and stops working without them18!

The nutritional scientists at ColonBroom have found a solution to help you manage your fiber intake. 

ColonBroom has derived a helpful blend, including psyllium husk, a dietary fiber that helps you flush out all that unwanted, lingering poop19.

Because of its unique formula and intricate blend, ColonBroom not only helps your digestive system complete its natural cycle. Its other benefits include:

  • It doesn’t have sugar, so it doesn’t balance out the diet you’re on.
  • It’s strawberry flavored, so you’ll never have the issue with taking it regularly.
  • It boosts your metabolism by decreasing the calories your body absorbs20, helping your weight loss efforts reach their maximum potential21.
  • Helps fight constipation, so you don’t feel heavy anymore22.
  • Boosts your energy by keeping it level throughout the day23.
  • Improves sleep by making it deeper and more restorative24.
  • And, most importantly, gets rid of that lingering poop you’ve been holding on to for up to weeks at a time!

And, of course, ColonBroom personalizes this experience for you.

    I’ve actually been using ColonBroom for quite some time, and not to put too much info out there, but everything passes through so much quicker! I’m never discouraged when I step onto the scale.
