Many of the ingredients used in Source Naturals Herbal Re:Store are common in detox supplements. These help cleanse the blood, liver, lungs and other organs. There is very little or no clinical evidence for the claims made by herbal detox supplements. The remaining ingredients work to move the toxins out of the body. These ingredients may be dangerous for some dieters and consumers. Typically, laxatives and diuretics are used to move toxins.
Burdock root, yellow dock root, dandelion root and dandelion root extract are four diuretics. Diuretics increase urination to rinse out toxins after the detox ingredients work. Diuretics have no way of knowing how much is enough fluid and thus they will continue to decrease water retention beyond healthy levels. Dehydration is common when using diuretics, but so is potassium loss and an increased risk for kidney problems as the kidneys have to process that extra urine.
Licorice root is another ingredient with diuretic qualities. This ingredient should never be combined with diuretics, according to the National Institutes of Health. When diuretics combine with licorice root, potassium loss increases. When the body does not have enough potassium, muscle cramping begins. The cramping can get severe and affect the heart, causing increased risk for heart attack and heart failure.

When a dieter suffers from water retention it can be frustrating. Supplements like Source Naturals Herbal Re:Store may work to reduce water retention, but it will not increase weight loss. Dehydration can lead to constipation, which causes more of a “toxic” problem. We do not believe this product is safe for every consumer.
