How Much Poop Is Trapped In Your Body?
How much waste (poop) is in the human body at any given time?
Much more than you probably think.
Depending on your height, age, and diet you could be carrying anywhere from 7 to 10 pounds of poop in your intestines.
It’s not a pretty picture.
The stinking waste that piles up in your intestines can seriously harm your digestive health.
According to Harvard Medical School 1, symptoms of poor digestive health include:
- Upset stomach
- Excessive gas
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Mood swings
- Skin conditions
- Rapid weight gain
The National Institutes of Health reports that as many as 70 million Americans are suffering with these and other symptoms of poor digestive health. 2
236,000 Americans die of digestive-related disease every year.
And another 1.9 million are disabled.
Poor digestive health is much more than a problem in America. It’s a nationwide epidemic.
You need to understand WHY millions of Americans are carrying 20 pounds (or more) of feces around in their digestive system. And what YOU can do to protect your health.
Why You Might Have Seven Pounds Of Poop Trapped In Your Body
Do you eat the Standard American Diet of heavily processed foods? Then it’s practically guaranteed you’re lugging around unwanted pounds of poop.
Processed foods are made from refined ingredients and added substances like salt, sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors and preservatives.
Some of the most common processed foods include soda, microwavable meals, cereal, lunch meat, fast food, bread, chips, crackers, cookies and candy.
A lot of these foods are marketed to you as healthy. And as a result we eat a TON of processed food in America.
A 2016 study published in the journal BMJ Open found that the average American gets 57.9% of their daily calories from ‘ultra-processed foods’. 3
These ultra-processed foods are the worst of the worst:
- Pepsi and Coke
- Greasy burgers and fries
- Fried chicken
- Sugary drinks from your neighborhood Starbucks
They’re loaded with artificial ingredients. Hard-to-pronounce chemical agents like pyridoxine hydrochloride, sucralose, and dipotassium phosphate.
They’re low in fiber. So they sit in your gut for days, weeks, and can lead to severe constipation.
These ultra-processed foods aren’t found in nature. They’re cooked up in labs run by mega-rich food companies.
And they slam the brakes on your body’s natural ability to digest and eliminate waste.
And we’re gorging on these foods in America!
No wonder the average American has 20 pounds of poop trapped in their intestines!
Your body cannot properly digest and eliminate these ultra-processed “Frankenfoods”.
As a result, they get lodged in the lining of your intestinal tract in the form of old, rotten feces and mucus.
And when your intestines are crammed with putrid feces your belly bloats like a balloon.
You feel fatigued. Tired all the time.
You seem to catch every little bug that goes around church or the office.
And your health is seriously compromised.
Unless you do something about it.
The Silent Problem Inside Of You
The intestines are a long tube running from the stomach to the anus and includes the small intestines, large intestines (colon), and rectum.
Your body absorbs most of its nutrients in the intestines.
The small intestine is about 20 feet long and about an inch in diameter. It’s responsible for absorbing nutrients from the things you eat and drink.
The large intestine, or colon, is about as long as you are tall. And it’s roughly as big around as your wrist. The colon absorbs water from waste. This creates feces.
For every foot of colon, the body can store between 7 and 10 pounds of feces.
So if you’re just over five foot tall you could have over 20 pounds of poop stuck in your colon. And that estimate is on the conservative side!
“The intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, putrefying matter,” says natural health expert, Richard Anderson, N.D., N.M.D.
“Some intestines, when autopsied, have weighed up to 40 pounds and were distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through which the feces could move.
“That 40 pounds was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus, mixed with fecal matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an old piece of dried rawhide.”
Doctors refer to this poisonous waste as “mucoid plaque”. I considered including a picture of it in this article. But, frankly, the images are too graphic.
And I want to make sure not to scare you off. Because you can’t afford to miss out on the exciting health news I want to share with you…
4 Amazing Benefits Of Good Digestive Health
When you flush trapped poop out of your intestines, your digestive health improves.
And when your digestive health improves, you gain better head-to-toe health.
You surge with more energy. You fight off cold and flu. You have a much easier time burning fat and shedding pounds.
You experience these health benefits (and more) because your digestive system is responsible for:
1. Vitamin, Mineral and Nutrient Absorption
All of your vitamin, mineral and nutrient absorption takes place in the intestines.
If your gut is burdened with pounds of toxic waste, you can’t absorb the nutrients you need from the foods you eat.
And this will leave you tired, run down, and at risk for illness.
And that’s not all…
Research suggests that poor gut health could be a major contributing factor to obesity. 4
If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s essential that you purge rotten feces from your colon.
This will quickly lead to weight loss and a flatter stomach. And, it will improve your digestive health which makes ongoing weight loss easier and more effective.
Do you struggle with slow or no metabolism? Do you find it difficult to lose weight? Have you tried diet and exercise in the past but still can’t seem to get rid of unwanted pounds?
Blame it on your gut.
Scientists are now convinced that the good bacteria that live in your gut impact your metabolism and your body’s ability to lose weight. 5
These good bacteria, known as “probiotics”, need to live in a clean, healthy environment, and not a toxic swamp filled with pounds of decaying, undigested food.
Flush the trapped poop out of your digestive system, and your good bacteria will fire up your metabolism and restore your body’s natural fat-burning abilities.
3. Protection Against Illness and Disease
New research suggests that as much as 80% of your body’s immune cells are located in your digestive system! 6
You don’t need me to tell you that poop is crawling with nasty bugs, bacteria and pathogens.
If you’ve got 20 pounds of poop sitting in your gut, do you think you’ll look and feel healthy? Not a chance!
Do you find yourself getting sick more often than usual? Do you suffer from allergies? Do you feel like your health is slowly going downhill?
These are all signs that your digestive health has been compromised, and you need to act fast to flush the toxic poop that’s poisoning you from the inside out. I’ll show you how to do that in just a second…
4. Emotional Well-Being
We all want to feel happy and live life to the fullest.
Purging your digestive system of harmful waste will make you feel like a million bucks! That’s because 90% of the body’s serotonin is made in the digestive system. 7
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter known as the “happy hormone”. It influences how happy and relaxed you feel. If your digestive system is toxic and unhealthy, you’re not going to get adequate levels of serotonin.
And insufficient serotonin levels have been linked to mood swings, stress and depression.
Purge the nasty waste from your digestive system. You’ll be amazed at how much happier it makes you feel!
The benefits of a healthy digestive system are amazing.
But if you’ve got pounds of toxic poop lodged in your colon, you’re not able to enjoy these health benefits the way you deserve.
You’re missing out.
70,000,000 Americans Suffer, Needlessly
Remember: the National Institutes of Health estimates that 70 million Americans experience poor digestive health.
And some experts believe that number could be closer to 100 million.
100 MILLION good men and women who are being cheated out of the fun and vibrant health they deserve, all because the so-called “healthy” foods they eat are anything but healthy.
The mega-rich food companies load our plates with their ultra-processed junk and promise, “Dig in! It’s good for you!” But so many of these foods rot in our gut for days. Weeks. Even longer.
These foods fester and decompose in our colon until we’re burdened with 20 pounds of toxic poop trapped in our bodies harming our digestive health.
And forcing us to suffer from constipation, gas, bloating, weight gain, heartburn, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acne, fatigue, depression and a host of other health issues.
Don’t let trapped poop rob you of your precious health!
