What You Should Know
Detox and colon irrigation products have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many individuals turning to them as a way to improve their health and now, it seems, to lose weight. However, there is little medical evidence supporting the need to detox, and even less pointing to the efficacy of detoxing in terms of weight loss. One product that fits into the detox and colon irrigation niche is Selmedica Colon DTX, a product available in pad form that is designed to promote improved bodily health through encouraging the body to cleanse itself of allegedly harmful toxins and pollutants that build up through eating poorly and living in a poor environment.
List Of Ingredients
Selmedica Colon DTX pads contain the following ingredients: Eucalyptus, Chitosan, Tourmaline, Houttyunia Cordata, Oak Vinegar, Bamboo Vinegar, Agrcarius Mushroom and Saurus Chinesis.
Selmedica Colon DTX pads are inserted into a user’s shoes, where they are supposed to draw out toxins from the body using osmosis. The company asserts that the pads will initially turn brown due to the large number of toxins being leeched from the body, but will eventually turn white with time as there are fewer toxins that need to be drawn out of the body. The pads are available for roughly $2 a pair, meaning that a month’s supply would cost approximately $60.
- The pads can be easily obtained online
- The pads are easy to use
- The efficacy of the pads is dubious
- Little relevant medical information is provided about the pads
- The cost of the pads may be prohibitive to some
Selemedica Colon DTX pads allegedly help cleanse the body by drawing out toxins through the feet. However, there is little available medical evidence in terms of the efficacy of such a product, and online reviews seem highly dubious as to how valid it is as a means of “detoxing”. In addition, detoxing tends to be decried by many professionals as an unnecessary undertaking; this, in addition to the price of Selmedica Colon DTX pads and other related products indicate that users may wish to bypass this product. An analysis of the ingredients involved indicates that there are few active ingredients that may play any sort of beneficial role in cleansing, and the method of the cleansing is questionable. Individuals wishing to detox may instead wish simply to eat well and exercise regularly, as this can ensure that an individual’s organs are able to function in a healthy manner, ensuring that they are able to undertake the detoxing function they already perform to the best of their ability.
