When combined with proper nutrition and a conscientious exercise program, Nature's Tea gives the body the nutritional support it needs to cleanse and slim itself for improved health and appearance.*

Freeways operate most efficiently when traffic flows smoothly. When traffic slows down due to overcrowding or traffic obstructions, congestion occurs. The result is a traffic jam that can back up cars for miles. The same is true of the intestinal tract. The colon functions properly when bowel transit is accomplished with regularity. Constipation becomes a problem when transit time is slowed, bringing with it numerous health concerns. Sometimes the body's systems need a little help to get things moving again, and Nature's Tea supports this natural process. Proper intestinal function is an important aspect of any program designed to help the body manage weight.*


Research Brief
The colon, or large intestine, is the terminal portion of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The colon receives the thoroughly mixed and digested remains of food from the upper portions of the GI tract. Remaining nutrients, primarily in the form of indigestible fiber, is acted upon by intestinal bacteria. These bacteria produce various vitamins, such as vitamin K and biotin, that are absorbed into the blood. In addition, the colon also absorbs significant amounts of water and electrolytes from the digested food before it is eliminated.

Colon health relies on two factors: 1) the health and viability of intestinal bacteria and 2) constant motility to move the contents along the colon. Dietary fiber helps stimulate bacterial fermentation as well as motility. Lack of motility in the colon slows the transit time of digested materials. This leads to an increase in the amount of water reabsorbed and can lead to constipation. Severe cases of constipation can lead to intestinal blockage. On the other hand, greatly increased motility can cause diarrhea, which can lead to severe loss of water and electrolytes.
