What You Should Know
Colon Fit is made by Renew Life, which promotes itself as a company devoted to digestive care. Colon Fit is not primarily a diet product. Instead, it is designed to support and maintain healthy bowel function. However, the company does say that the product will help consumers who are attempting to lose weight although it does not detail how. Some of the ingredients that may promote weight reduction in a limited way are okra powder which has some diuretic qualities and triphala which has been shown to improve digestion.
The all natural ingredients found in Colon Fit are admirable, however, many diet products are now promoting an all natural approach and therefore it is not unique in this market. Consumers are urged to take one serving a day, which is two pills. There are sixty pills in each bottle so one bottle is a one month supply. Each bottle is approximately $17.00, which makes this one of the least expensive diet products on the market.
List of Ingredients
The ingredients in Colon Fit are magnesium, aloe vera leaf powder, alder buckthorn powder, acacia fiber, okra powder, and a blend of bibhitaki, amalaki, and haritaki as well as the fiber and water that make up the gel capsule.
The product is designed to stimulate bowel function with the buckthorn and aloe vera leaf. As an added benefit the inclusion of acacia provides a prebiotic and additional fiber which help to maintain the beneficial bacteria in the colon and promote general colong function.

The primary goal of this product is to promote regular bowel movements and according to reviews this goal is primarily achieved. However, it is also marketed as a weight loss supplement and this goal is not supported by testimonials nor by the active ingredients. While it may help dieters achieve a small measure of weight loss initially, this is not due to the loss of fat but rather the removal of build up in the colon and the loss of excess water. This product is not the best choice for those seeking to actively lose weight.
