With the recent buzz about Paleocleanse reviews, we decided to conduct a more thorough analysis 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 Plus 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?”

Paleo Cleanse 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 this year is Dietspotlight Burn. 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 Dietspotlight Burn are so certain their product works, they’re providing new customers with a special trial offer, which we love to see.

Product Features

The 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 Plus 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.


  • Does not contain fructose.
  • Supports Phase I and Phase II metabolic pathways.
  • Ease of mixing.
  • Smooth texture.
  • Provides a full multivitamin core.


  • Contains Dandelion Root, which is a diuretic.
  • No long-term weight loss.


There are many detoxification products like PaleoCleanse. PaleoCleanse will assist in your temporary weight loss needs. If a dieter is looking for a more sustainable weight loss program verses a temporary liver cleanse, you will not find the required ingredients in PaleoCleanse. Fat burning ingredients, appetite suppressants and proven metabolic boosters are not included in the Paleo Cleanse formula.

  Having Terrible Suger Carvings
Karen (Verified User)

I’m five days into the 14 day cleanse and having terrible sugar cravings. What happens if I eat a little sugar while on the cleanse?


I’m on day 7 of the PaleoCleanse. I mix it with berries and nut milk and am happy with the taste. I feel great after 7-days. I had headaches and body aches for the first three days which is normal. Since then I’ve notice less bloating, less inflammation and feel much better. I’m a little hungry during the day as I’m accustomed to eating meals versus shakes, but that is stabilizing. I’ve lost 3-pounds. I wish I would have measured my abdomen as I know I’ve lost inches.


It’s okay tasting, I added strawberries and would sometimes use unsweetened almond milk. I feel it does work to fill you up and that is because it appears to thicken over a period of time. You can test this by just putting a packet into water and check it in an hour or two. It did help fill me up and this helps with me wanting to eat. I have cilut caffeine, sugar, and temp dairy and carbs to jumpstart my weight loss. I also combined this with an appetite suppressant. It def worked for me. 13 lbs in 13 days…started added healthy foods back into my diet already and I continue to lose weight.


I am on day 6 of the Paleo Cleanse Plus. It is gritty and taste horrible. I mix with strawberries which slightly helps but the grit is still there. My doctor had me do this to cleanse my liver and said I may or may not lose weight. I have lost 4 pounds which is great but I contribute that to the lower calorie intake. The shake does fill me up so I only eat a snack and 1 meal a day.

It says “No testimonials could be found online to support the powder tastes great.” I am here to say it tastes like berries and is smooth and delicious!

  The shake does really fill me up
Tina (Verified User)

I am on day 4 of the PaleoCleanse. I am not hungry at all. The shake does really fill me up but I have had better protein powder. It has a fine grit to it and had a protein taste. I blend mine with fresh fruit to help the flavor and texture. I have lost 4 pounds since being on the Cleanse which I contribute to lower calorie intake. I would do this as an occasional liver cleanse. I recommend.

  taste great and works very well
