When I was younger, my mom always told me (she learned it from her mom and her mom learned it from her mom, etc.) that whenever she eats coconut, FYI: coconut is abundant in the Philippines, she would always have to go to the bathroom. I, too, love coconut but it doesn't have that effect on me when I was younger. Maybe because I suffer from constipation, but I'm not sure why.
So when I received the Coconut Colon Cleanse from Island Vibrance, I was quite excited to see how it would fare since it comes in a more concentrated form.
Here is a quick product description for the Coconut Colon Cleanse:

I've been taking the Coconut Cleanse By Island Vibrance for a week now and my bowel movements have improved a lot. I take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening. It took 2 days before I started excreting everything I ate and am eating (there's a lot in the toilet bowl!) and it kind of looks soft, mushy and sometimes a bit watery.
What I like about this colon cleanse is that it doesn't cause any stomach discomfort. I do feel like I have a mild diarrhea minus the stomach cramps. I also don't feel gassy and bloated. The capsules have an herbal taste when I take it but it doesn't cause any burpy aftertaste.
The only thing I'm confused about is how many days I'm supposed to take this supplement. Other types of colon cleanses I've taken before should only be taken 7 to 10 days maximum. The Coconut Colon Cleanse says in the directions to use it as directed and in front of the bottle, it states that this is a 30-day supply. So I'm thinking this should be taken for 30 days straight.
Other than that confusing direction, or lack of direction, this is a nice and gentle colon cleanse which is effective. I can say that it's gentle because it removes everything out without causing any stomach discomfort. I also like the fact that it's made of herbs and plants.
NOTE: If you have a medical condition, taking any medication or have any questions or allergies to anything, please ask your health care provider first before taking ANY supplement. :)
