ColonEaze~Move is a stool softening agent to help relieve constipation and improve intestinal muscle tone and peristalsis. Specifically formulated to be gentle, yet effective, for people with sensitive bowels.
If you’ve read my book, Listen To Your Colon, you’ll know why soluble fiber is preferable to insoluble fiber. It helps maintain regularity, along with gentle yet effective herbs (Indian sarsparilla root, artichoke leaf extract, dandelion root, Haritaki) to stimulate detox, and support the liver and kidneys (which become burdened when constipated).
The majority of the soluble fiber in ColonEaze~Move consists of organic psyllium seed powder; with a smaller amount of organic psyllium husk. Why? Because many people with sensitive guts can be triggered if they ingest a lot of psyllium husk, but they’re just fine (and helped) by psyllium seed. These are very different parts of the plant and they affect the intestines differently – so it’s important to get the ratio right.
Psyllium bulks up the stool (attracts/holds water if your stool is too hard), exercises the colon, evens out peristaltic rhythm, helps produce butyrate (anti-inflammatory for the gut), while it also becomes a food for probiotics. All of which help to maintain the integrity of the colon mucosal lining. Also, due to psyllium’s stool bulking ability, it is a valuable detox agent that helps sweep out toxins, die-off substances, or dead pathogens.
Available in a loose powder that you can add to water or diluted fruit juice.
Dosage: Mix 1-3 teaspoons in 8-16 ounces (1-2 cups) of water or diluted fruit juice, 1-3 times per day. Stir briskly and drink promptly. Start with half a teaspoon and gradually increase. Best if used on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning and before bed is usually best. Make sure to drink another cup (8 ounces) of water following dosage.
Take at the same time of day to promote regular bowel movements – if you want to have a bowel movement in the morning, then take ColonEaze~Move before bed (on an empty stomach). If you find you need help to stimulate a bowel movement, you can take 250-500 mg of magnesium citrate with ColonEaze~Move, up to a maximum of 1000 mg per day.
If you would like to increase its action, then you can do so by either increasing the amount you take, or by increasing the frequency of dosage.
So this means you might want to increase to 1.5 teaspoons or 1 tablespoon every morning and see how your body responds. Or you might like to take 1 teaspoon in the morning and 1 teaspoon in the afternoon. People have used up to 2 tablespoons per dosage. So you may want to increase slowly and find the dosage/frequency that is right for your unique body.
There are no known contraindications for using ColonEaze long term, but as your gut health and diet improve, you may not need to take it every day, or you may wish to decrease the dosage etc.
*NOTE: ColonEaze is a dietary supplement comprised of a herb blend, and % DV is based on children 4 & up. We don’t know of any health risks, but you can always check with your healthcare professional for any concerns.
But keep in mind, that ColonEaze~Move is designed to address the underlying issues around constipation (along with probiotic ingestion) so over time you should be able to decrease the amount of magnesium you use, to normal supplementation levels. 125-250 mg of magnesium citrate per day is considered a normal level of magnesium supplementation.

NOTE: 1.84% of women over age 60 have heart palpitations caused by psyllium. Either due to an allergic reaction or due to psyllium slowing down the digestion/absorption of carbohydrates, thus resulting in low blood sugar and increased heart rate.
