What You Should Know
Certainly, a healthy colon and healthy liver are keys to leading a healthier, more satisfying life. And, there are several products on the market today that promote such a concept. Market America’s nutraMetrix NutriClean HepatoCleanse is one product that we chose to take a closer look at. We wanted to see what makes their product unique from the others that claim to provide the same benefits of cleansing the colon and liver. Here’s what their official website has to say about their three part system.
List of Ingredients
Milk Thistle Seed, N-Acetyl-L-cysteine, Dandelion Root, Garlic Bulb, Hawthorn Berry Extract, Schizandra Chinensis Fruit and Seed Extract, Yellow Dock Root, Burdock Root, Licorice Root, Barberry Bark and Root, Rosemary Leaf, Ginger Root, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Hyssop, Red Clover Flower, Turmeric Root Extract, Rhubarb Root, Buckthorn Bark, Cascara Sagrada bark extract, Gentian Root, Anise Seed, Fennel Seed, Black Walnut Bark, Oregon Grape Root, Scutellaria Root extract, Goldenseal, Peppermint Leaf, Fiber Powder, L-glutamine 1,000 mg, Inulin Fiber (fructo-oligosaccharide extract of chicory root) 5,000 mg, Fibersol-2 (soluble fiber flucose polymer complex) 5,000 mg, Probiotic Blend (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifodobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus casei).
The HepatoCleanse three part system takes about a week to cleanse the digestive system and is promoted to have helped many people achieve a healthier colon that have been plagued by a poor diet or have undergone the stresses of environmental toxins. The system is designed to purify the blood and body organs while it flushes out the colon and gastrointestinal tract. It also supports the body’s own ability of restoring and cleansing the digestive system. The release formula in each tablet claims to provide the body with its needed fiber and bacteria that promote a healthy colon. The system is suggested to be used twice a year to continue a healthy colon and digestive system. While there have been many studies done and articles written about the benefits of keeping the digestive system clean, the FDA has not evaluated or substantiated any of the claims made by these product manufacturers. We always like to see customer testimonials to give some kind of validity to the success of the products. We did not find any here. Unfortunately, there just isn’t much to persuade us of the product’s viability.
- Promotes healthy bowel movements.
- The website does not contain any customer testimonials.
- There is no product guarantee or return policy readily available.
- Products are not approved by the FDA.
HepatoCleanse is just one of many products on the market that claim to cleanse the digestive system, colon, and liver. However, if weight loss or weight control is what you are looking for, this product falls short. There are no appetite suppressants or fat burning ingredients listed for the product. While a healthy digestive system and clean colon are desirable, a colon cleanse is not designed for weight management. The fact that very little information about long term benefits of this product are available is disappointing. As well, the lack of customer testimonials has us wondering about the positive results of the product’s claims. It’s always wise to first seek the advice of your health care professional about weight management, especially in the cases of obesity. Generally, a healthy eating plan and plenty of water in the diet will achieve the results that most of these types of products claim to provide.
