About the recipe
This is a colon cleanse salt water detox drink that can be made easily at home. The main purpose of its consumption is to have a clean colon by removing toxic substances from our body once in a while. It can also be used if a human body faces irregular movements in the bowel or having other regular issues such as constipation.
There are detox drinks that can easily help to detoxify the body but sometimes one may need the urgency to clean the colon and remove impurities from it and have a healthy colon. This drink can save those looking for such recipes.
There is no evidence whether the drink is fully proven to use regularly and it is always a suggestion from me to go for a doctor's advice before planning to consume the drink.
This recipe just requires two simple ingredients to make that are listed below.
Himalayan salt or pink salt: This is a salt that is in its purest form less processed and has a high demand for its amazing benefits. This is the reason why it is highly used in some of the recipes mainly detox recipes or stomach cleansing or digestion-related recipes because it has those properties.
I am using this pure pink salt in the saltwater flush recipe which is easily available in markets.
Warm water: Warm water usage helps in detoxifying the body quickly than cold water and I will be using this water along with salt to make the cleansing flush.
These are just two basic ingredients and if Himalayan pink salt is not available try to use pure sea salt but definitely not table salt.
Below I will be list some details on the benefits and useful properties of pink salt that can bring immense benefits to the human body.
Benefits of himalayan salt
This salt is high in possessing many essential minerals as well as nutrients and is good if taken along with some water and it is available in the rock areas of Pakistan.
It has less amount of sodium when compared to regularly used processed table salt and is better known to treat stomach related issues such as digestion, constipation etc...
It can give back the body the lost minerals if there is excessive sweat released from the body. Drink it by adding some pink salt in water and it helps regain the lost nutrients immediately and energises the human body.
It balances the ph levels of the body if there is any imbalance created due to any issues and having this drink can immediately help balance the levels and brings back the needed electrolyte requirement in our body.
Using normal table salt causes excess sodium to deposit in our body and retains the fluid in our body. The reason is due to the high sodium content present in the table salt compared to pure sea salt.
The processed table salt contains artificially added iodine in it but pure sea salt has natural iodine content to it.
High fluid retention in our body can cause health problems such as heart issues and blood pressure problems and can lead to heart attacks.
Always make sure to have a diet that is low in sodium and not high that can cause high blood pressure problems.
It can be used to have saltwater baths as well as to remove impurities from the skin. It acts as a great exfoliator if mixed in the water while having a bath or applying it on the skin by mixing in hair oils.
Normally, it is called 'Kala namak' and added to many digestive drinks such as 'aam panna' or pani of the golgappa other than the detox drinks to make it tasty.
Why this drink?
This sea salt flush or sea salt cleanse helps to flush out excess toxins from the bowels and helps to treat irregular bowel movements by cleaning them after using this drink.
Suppose we have had many unhealthy drinks that have been deposited and not flushed out and continuously retained in the body, this drink can help flush them out by cleaning the stomach and colon.
It cleanses the stomach quickly by treating constipation, bloating as well as treats digestion issues.
If there is any fluid retained in the body which is harmful to blood pressure issues, this drink consumption works wonders by removing the excess fluid from a human body.
If there are other problems such as sore throat issues, then this drink can help ease those issues smoothly.
It is a drink basically to solve or treat all gastrointestinal issues from the body.
Since the body flushes out all the impurities and makes us feel light, it can temporarily appear that a body has lost weight due to excessive flushing but it is just temporary.
Therefore, if looking to lose weight temporarily then do try this saltwater flush weight loss recipe and also do check out some more detox drinks for weight loss as well as other interesting weight loss drinks such as honey apple cider vinegar with cinnamon .
Sometimes excess bowel cleaning with this drink can lead to excess salt loss as well as imbalances in the electrolyte levels in the body and in this case having an electrolyte drink or electrolyte powder can help in balancing the electrolytes.
The salt water cleanse drink can also lead to tiredness and causes fatigue in the body. It can cause blood pressure fluctuations as well as causes vomitings or vomiting sensation and nausea-like symptoms too.
It can also cause muscle spasms and one needs to take care with the frequency of this drink consumption as it can be more dangerous to have it regularly.
How to drink it and when?
Prepare the drink by mixing a tablespoon of Himalayan pink salt or pure sea salt into one quart or around 16 ounces of warm water and stir well.
Consume it on an empty stomach and give a gap of at least 30 minutes before having something and try to use it early in the morning.
Do not try to have the salt water flush in the middle of the day or on a busy schedule with a busy routine as it can require many visits to make sure the bowel gets cleaned.
Just taking care of this can save the day in regularly visiting restrooms or bathrooms. This salt can be dangerous with regular consumption and do not consume daily. Just use it in case of emergency and on a relaxing day.
Salt water flush didn't work?
Since this is not an often suggested drink, try to include or use other methods to flush out or detoxify.
Various methods can include having or maintaining a healthy diet of soups, salads, a diet rich in potassium, iron etc...
Avoid smoking and drinking and this can work a lot in maintaining a healthy colon.
Exercising regularly can be very effective for better health and better digestion rather than following unproven methods.
