How healthy is your digestive system? You may not be aware that an unhealthy colon can reflect in how you feel and how you look. An unbalanced digestive system can drain your energy and affects your metabolism. When your colon is not functioning properly it can reflect in your skin condition.

An unhealthy colon throws out the balance of healthy bacteria in your gut and can cause all sorts of digestive issues, such as Candida, a contributing factor to bad skin.
