What causes colon polyps?

Colon polyps are merely symptoms of colon problems and are mostly caused by not enough fiber in the diet and eating foods high in trans fats. If you consume a diet of less than 80% raw fruits and veggies, you should eat more raw foods that are rich in fiber and take fiber supplements like psyllium husk or ground flaxseed. Always drink plenty of water, especially when taking fiber supplements. Taking a non-corn, non-GMO vitamin C helps reduce the formation of polyps. Mixed tocopherol vitamin E is loaded with antioxidants that help mitigate cell damage in the body associated with polyps. Vitamin A helps protect all of the epithelial cells of the body including the membranes lining the digestive tract. Avoid taking PPIs like Prilosec while staying off of antacids like Tums, Rolaids and etc. to help thwart the recurrence of polyps after surgery. Besides, if you think you need an antacid, you more than likely need to take some HCL instead. HCL should stop heartburn and raise the stomach acid as low stomach acid also breeds colon polyps.polyps
