Just like many of you, I was finding advertisements for Colon Broom all over social media, and the allure of losing weight by mixing up a cocktail roped me in. So…I ended up picking up a 3-month supply of Colon Broom to give it a go. I mean, who doesn’t want to lose weight?! Oh, and by the way, I used the following code: RTHIS10 when I placed my order since it took off another $10 on top of all the discounts that the company offers.
In my Colon Broom review, we’re going to discuss:
- What is Colon Broom?
- What is Colon Broom supposed to do for you?
- Does really Colon Broom work, or more specifically, did it work for me?
- Is Colon Broom safe for you?
Before we begin, I will say that I spent about 8-12 hours researching ColonBroom before I initially made my purchase, and I have been using it for 60 days now. Later in the review, you’ll find my own before and after results from using the product.One last thing before we dive into my review, I do NOT recommend buying Colon Broom from Amazon, because my own friend ended up getting a fake bottle! Make sure you’re ordering it from the OFFICIAL WEBSITE if you’re going to give it a go.
What is Colon Broom?
From looking at the bottle, we can see that Colon Broom labels itself as a “Dietary Supplement”, and the largest tagline that we see is “Natural way to help get rid of unwanted bloating”. Without question, whether you look at their website, at the bottom, or the pamphlets that they deliver alongside with the bottle, there is a big focus on “losing weight”.
If we pick away at the name “Colon” Broom, then that also tells that it is likely some sort of colon cleansing – and it is!
So colon cleansing is a process where the colon is emptied of waste and toxins, which can help with weight loss by promoting better digestion and reducing bloating.
Waste buildup in the colon can cause it to stretch, which can lead to bloating and discomfort. When the colon is cleaned, it returns to its normal size, which can help with weight loss.
Additionally, colon cleansing can improve nutrient absorption. When waste and toxins accumulate in the colon, they can interfere with the absorption of nutrients, which can lead to malnutrition and weight gain. By removing these toxins, colon cleansing can help the body to absorb nutrients more effectively, which can aid weight loss.
But what ingredient within Colon Broom would actually help with colon cleansing?
The magic ingredient within ColonBroom is Psyllium Husk Powder, which is a substance that is high in fiber and is also a laxative.
What is Colon Broom supposed to do for you?
Now that we know that the Psyllium Husk Podwer is the magic ingredient within Colonbroom, what does this magical ingredient really do?
- Easy way to take in fiber
- Stimulate bowel movement
Let’s talk about fiber. Only 7% of Americans take the required amount of Fiber on a daily basis. Having the appropriate amount of fiber in your diet is incredibly important since it regulates blood sugar levels, lowers your cholesterol, regulates bowel movement, lowers the risk of heart disease, and makes you feel more full.
When it comes to stimulating bowel movement when you take Colonbroom aka Psyllium Husk Powder, you’re required to drink A LOT of water. When you do so, it helps get rid of the waste and toxins that accumulate in the colon. The waste and toxins interfere with the absorption of nutrients, which can lead to malnutrition and weight gain.
So to sum this up, ColonBroom helps you by adding fiber to your diet, which is very healthy for you and also reduces your appetite to eat. On top of that, it helps clean out your colon, which gets rid of the bloating, and the toxins within your colon. Which once again, makes you healthier.
My Colon Broom Review/Experience
Yes, that is 19 pounds of weight loss over 60 days! From 178 lbs to 159 lbs.
I’m going to tell you exactly what I did over these 60 days because these results didn’t come just from taking Colon Broom, I did have to make a few lifestyle changes as well.
What I did:
- Take Colon Broom 1-2 per day
- Minimize soda intake while drinking a lot more water
- Taking advantage of discounted meals
Before we dive into those three points, let me share one more before/after pic 🙂
Personally, I ordered my Colon Broom directly from their website, and for a good reason! A friend of mine decided to order a bottle through Amazon, and they had a completely different experience than I did. When we simply compared the color of our powders, her powder was lighter than mine. So it’s better to be safe than sorry by just ordering it directly from the company itself. From the looks of it, with this particular link, you get almost 65% off on your purchase & if you enter the coupon RTHIS10 at checkout, you get a further discount.
This was the particular package I ordered, you can see all the usual discounts in addition to the $10 off from using that specific code. Don’t tell anyone else 😉
When my Colon Broom bottles were delivered, I was quick to open up one of the bottles, and instantly I was struck with a strong sweet smell! The company does advertise the powder to be “Strawberry” Flavor, and sure, you can call it that. I didn’t take any the first day, since the package was delivered midday, and I wanted to wait until the next morning to begin.
Week 1: 178 lb starting weight
The next day I got up and decided to make my first glass of Colon Broom. Following the directions, I should take a glass about 30 minutes before I have my first meal, so I made sure to make a glass before I even got ready for the day!
I had to dig inside the tub to find the scoop that comes with the tub, but I finally found it, and dumped a scoop into a 12-ounce of water.
I mixed and mixed.
It didn’t seem to mix that great, and I remember reading from other reviews that if you wait too long, it might get lumpy, so I decided to just down the drink right then and there. And yes, it was fairly gritty, and didn’t have the best taste, but, nothing that I can’t stomach.
I did the same right after I came from work.
For the first 4 days, I didn’t necessarily see a difference in my bowel movement just yet. I did notice that I felt slightly less bloated, but that could have just been a placebo. What I did notice is that I was getting a solid 1-2 hours of energy after a mixture, and I wasn’t reaching to snack as much in between my lunch and dinner.
I read online that when taking any sort of colon cleanser, it’s best to really increase your water intake, so I did just that.
Low and behold, everything changed on the 5th day! Usually, I only have 2 bowel movements per week….but just on the 5th day, I managed to go twice! Then the same for the 6th day and the 7th day! Let me tell you this much, I don’t remember the last time in my life that I was able to use the bathroom more than 4 times in a single week. On top of that, the usual bloatedness I would feel after dinner wasn’t there on the 6th day!
All in all, I was excited to hop on a scale after my first week. 🙂
Week 2: Now at 175 lbs (-3 lbs from the start)
I was happy with my results after the first week, and it was clear to me that I must have “cleaned out” my colon to some extent, for me to have lost 4 lbs in a week’s time.
At this point, I also made sure to drink about 64oz of water per day! I had bought myself this water bottle the week prior and made sure that I drank two full bottles of water per day.
The added benefit of drinking all of this water is that I stopped consuming as much soda or energy drinks. On a typical day, I’d probably have a can or two of my favorite pop, or maybe a Red Bull, but once I swapped all that for water, not only did I feel better (and my skin cleared up), but it was helping with the effects from Colon Broom.
Just so everyone is aware, a can of Coke has about 139 calories. You’d have to run for nearly 1.5 miles just to burn off that many calories….so it’s clear why they say that weight is lost in the kitchen, and not in the gym.
Anyhow, for the rest of week 2, I continued to take Colon Broom in the morning, and in the evening, and I ended up having a total of 9 bowel movements throughout the week. 🙂
Week 3: Now at 171 lbs (-7 lbs from the start)
Going into week three, I was happy to see that I was now 7 pounds lighter than when I first began. It was also at this point that I clearly started to see changes in the mirror! Even though I didn’t mention this for week 2, but Colon Broom + the constant drinking of water were really doing wonders for suppressing my appetite. I stopped reaching for a bag of chips while watching a Youtube video, or maybe looking for a pack of Snickers while binging a Netflix series.
Previously, this would be impossible for me! And whenever I tried in the past to cut the snacking from my life, I just couldn’t give it up. It almost felt weird to me to sit there and watch a show without snacking on something! So I was really happy and surprised to see that Colon Broom was helping me in this department.
My bowel movements have continued to be frequent, logged in 8 bowel movements for the week.
Week 4: Now at 168 lbs (-10 lbs from the start)
Officially down 10 pounds at this point, hooray me!
It became clear to me that Colon Broom was working well for me because it did a great job of helping me control over-eating. On top of that, since I was using the bathroom more often, and felt less bloated, I was also more inclined to actually go out and do stuff, as opposed to feeling sluggish or tired.
It was also around this time I continued to research what I can do to improve my health, and maybe “optimize” the effects of Colon Broom, and that is when I realized I may need to change what I eat.
Here is the thing, I have a pretty demanding job as a nurse, and I rarely have time to cook for myself! OK sure, maybe you can say I’m a bit lazy in that department, and I never put any effort towards “meal prep”. But anyhow, nearly all my meals have either been meals I’ve picked up from a local spot or maybe some frozen meal in the freezer. However you look at it, I haven’t been eating that well. This was really drilled into me once I understand that much of what I ate was “empty” calories and that I wasn’t getting all my nutritional needs.
On top of that, most of the food that we order for delivery is usually very high in calories due to the excessive butter and whatever else they add to make the meal taste great!
With all this in mind, I started to look for an easy and affordable alternative to my meals.
Week 5: Now at 166 lbs (-12 lbs from the start)
Here is a pretty cool tip I want to share. I came to find out that with many of the “meal delivery services” out there, they offer a sweet deal for new customers, so I decided, why not take advantage of those big discounts?
For this week, I first signed up for Trifecta. As a new customer, I was able to snag meals under the $7.80 a piece. (Use promo code “GETREADY” at checkout. Since they are a company that focuses on being calorie conscious and also making sure that the meals are nutritious, I figured it would only help me in my quest for losing weight.
I grabbed 14 meals at $7.80 each, and I would have each one for my dinner instead of spending $6-$20 each night for a local dinner.
Only thing is that I had to wait until the next week to begin.
Outside of this, I’ve continued to take Colon Broom as I usually would, and I made sure to stay on top of my water drinking. Where there some moments I was tired of the Colon Broom taste? Yea…sure! So sometimes I would mix it with orange juice to get it down easier.
Week 6: Now at 165 lbs (-13 lbs from the start)
Trifecta meals arrived this week, so from this point on, all of my dinners were going to be these meals! I didn’t have to prepare or cut any ingredients with this meal delivery company, I would simply need to microwave or maybe warm it up in the oven.
I will tell you this much, midday through the week, I felt even “lighter” than I had in the weeks prior, maybe it was just in my head, but I had ZERO bloatedness altogether at this point. Definitely felt that healthy eating + Colon Broom was doing wonders for me.
Week 7: Now at 162 lbs (-16 lbs from the start)
For the past week, I’ve continued to take my Colon Broom on schedule, but I’ve finally switched over to relying on meals from Trifecta. Here is a sample of one of the meals I ate:
What was nice is that I saw a bigger drop in weight this past week compared to the prior two weeks. Looking at my numbers, it’s clear the biggest benefit I received from Colon Broom was in the first month, and then the weight loss began to slow a bit, but eating better kickstarted the weight loss again!
To be honest, I’ve never been big on “clean eating”, especially since I’ve always had a big sugar craving, and always relied on “feel good” food. But with Colon Broom, I have been able to cut out snacking and have the appetite for better food.
Week 8: Now at 159 lbs (-19 lbs from the start)
I did notice some sudden bloating on Monday, and that was a bit tough, but then I cruised through the rest of the week! I wonder if maybe introducing more protein to my meal was a reason for that, since many of the Trifecta meals are high in protein. Either way, I’m still delighted with my results for the week, and I officially cracked under 160 lbs, which was my goal at the start!
Pros & Cons While Taking Colon Broom
I’m going to share a quick list of my own personal opinions on the pros and cons of taking Colon Broom:
- Cleared up bloating for me (major relief!)
- Helped me stop snacking
- Instilled a good habit of drinking more water
- Had a good energy boost whenever I took it
- Made me lose weight!
- Not the easiest powder to mix
- Not the biggest fan of the taste, but mixing it with orange juice helps greatly
- Didn’t do much for my bloating the first few days, but then it kicked in
- You’re likely going to need to incorporate some lifestyle changes to get the full benefit (so it’s not a miracle solution) I’ll explain more below.
- Their online quiz overestimates how much you could lose (I think they said I could lose like 40 lbs in 2 months!)
- Not cheap
My friends’ experience with Colon Broom
When I ordered my bottle, so did three of my friends. Well one of them ordered it from Amazon and got a counterfeit bottle. This again is why I recommend buying it directly from their website and using code “RTHIS10″ at checkout for an additional $10 off on your order.
My first friend ended up losing about 14 lbs during those 60 days, and her experience with similar to mine, but she and I were doing the same thing. Such as increasing our water intake, cutting out soda, and incorporating clean meals. Worth mentioning that her starting weight was 165 lbs, and she managed to get down to 151 lbs.
My second friend, who was at 175 lbs, she didn’t really do any of the extra things that we did. She just took Colon Broom every day, and that’s it. Over those 60 days, she only lost 9 lbs. Which is a big difference compared to myself or our other friend.
My third friend, who was 168 lbs had the worst results. She took Colon Broom for a few weeks, and never during that time did it help with her bloating or her cravings. It’s almost like it did nothing for her, and she swears that at times, she felt even more bloated. From reading other online reviews, it does seem that for some people, Colon Broom simply doesn’t work! So this is something to keep in mind, for whatever reason, your body doesn’t respond to it.
My final thoughts on Colon Broom
I am happy that I found Colon Broom, and the results that I received were better than what I expected. I know that while the online quiz I took with them stated that I could lose as much as 40 lbs during this timeframe, I was still happy to lose the 19 lbs that I did. I’ve tried various things in the past to lose weight, as many of us have, and never truly worked for me, as much as Colon Broom worked for me.
Just to finally have relief from bloating was such a positive in my life.
If you’re looking for a product that will help with bloating and aid in weight loss, then I do think that Colon Broom is the product for that. But as you can tell from my review, and my friends’ experience, you might need to put in extra work to see better results. Drink a lot of water, cut out the soda, and either try to cook more homemade meals, or take advantage of some meal delivery companies. If you decide to use Trifecta as I did, then with this link, you get 50% off your first few boxes as a new customer w/ (promo code “GETREADY” at checkout. Take advantage of that.
If you have any questions for me, throw them in the comments below, I’ll try to get to them. If you enjoyed my review, then I would appreciate it if you used my “refer a friend” link if you plan on ordering Colon Broom for yourself. 🙂
Best of luck!
