PaleoCleanse Review - Does This Cleanse Work? Are the ingredients and bad taste deal breakers?
With the recent buzz about Paleocleanse, we decided to conduct a more thorough review to see if the product is what it claims to be. We looked closely at the potential side effects, ingredient list, science, and user reviews. We also took hundreds of experiences into account. Then, we summarized and condensed everything to give you the bottom line.
What is Paleocleanse?
First off, Paleocleanse is a detoxification product marketed in powder form to help real move toxins from the liver. There is no official website listed so the information is pulled from various online sources. It contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D3, vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, Folic acid, B12, biotin, pantothenic acid, calcium, phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, green tea, dandelion root, milk thistle, and others. You can find this product on Amazon.com and other online retailers.
Without an official website, we don’t know much about the company that creates the product. We like the availability of information and what some users have the say about it, but read on…
The Liver Can Detoxify Itself
The liver is your body’s detoxification organ. Sure, poor diet and lifestyle can limit its ability to work optimally, but you can change your diet to support it. There is nothing in this product that will help promote weight-loss or appetite suppression. It’s essentially a fancy multivitamin.”There’s just no reason to believe this formula is going to help you lose,” said our Research Editor. “And, if the Paleocleanse ingredients were effective, you could buy them for less individually.”
“The main source of protein is from peas, being a legume and containing anti-nutrients and lechtins. Why of all sources of protein this company decided to choose this plant is beyond my understanding,” said one user.
Bad Taste – “Yuck!”
Several users have reported that this product doesn’t taste very good. The labeling isn’t very clear in the fact that it is supposed to be berry flavored.
“I really wish they had listed somewhere easily visible that it is Berry flavor. It tastes like drinking Froot Loops. I thought, because I didn’t see the flavor listed, that I was getting something unflavored and could mix with my protein shakes,” said one customer.
Another user said, “Does not taste good. Could not stick with it.”
Our research shows that if something has problems, like if it’s too expensive or tastes bad, dieters just aren’t going to have a high chance of success. That means if Paleocleanse is not something the dieter wants to drink, they may not stick around long enough to see any effect at all.
The Science – “Any Clinical Proof?”
Paleocleanse doesn’t provide any links to published clinical research. Ultimately, we know vitamins are good for us but we also know the liver functions of the body’s main detoxification organ. There’s just not enough science to support this product as a viable weight-loss solution.
The Bottom Line – Does Paleocleanse Work?
Are we racing out to pick up some Paleocleanse? Eating a bad diet high in fat can cause weight gain. Some believe cleansing the body and eliminate extra waste and jumpstart weight-loss. However, without the science to back this up, we’re hesitant to suggest dieters give it a try.
Trying to shed a few pounds? You may want to check out a clinically tested weight-loss supplement that contains appetite suppressant and/or fat burners with a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise routine.
Among the best supplements we’ve seen in 2016 is Leptigen. It features a unique blend of four clinically tested safe and effective ingredients shown to help boost the metabolism. Throughout our research, we couldn’t find any negative mentions of harmful side effects and we saw many users who reported experiencing solid results. You also have no taste to worry about.
The makers of Leptigen are so certain their product works, they’re providing new customers with a Special Trial Offer, which we love to see.

Product FeaturesThe product claims to be low in carbohydrates, but there is no accounting for the amount of natural sugars added. In the ingredient list, Rice Maltodextrin is listed with no unit of measure. Maltodextrin contains carbohydrates so there must be at least a trivial amount of calories and carbohydrates in the product. Claims are posted stating PaleoCleanse is the only detox that tastes great. This claim has no proof, and the only substantiation is the product has a berry flavor. No testimonials could be found online to support the powder tastes great. Vitamin B2 is an essential vitamin used in metabolic functions. This is another ingredient that can be found in a common multi-vitamin and is not shown to increase weight loss significantly.
