Colon and rectal health may not be a frequent topic of conversation, but we depend on this area of our anatomy to function effectively every day. As the final component in our digestive system, the colon removes water, salt and solids from the substances we’ve consumed and provides bacteria–assisted fermentation for unabsorbed material on its way through the rectum and out of our bodies.
