Let’s take a closer look at Colonoxy and see if it really will help you lose weight.
- Nothing whatsoever
- Could be dangerous to health
- Strange testimonial dates
- No ingredient quantities listed
- No clinical Proof
- Contains 18 ingredients
- Highly suspicious testimonials
- No evidence presented that Colonoxy could work
- Using emotive “scare tactics” to get you to buy
A quick look over the site and first impressions are not very good. It looks like the site was designed by someone stuck in the 90′s, with a very amateur look about it.
Not to worry though, sometimes the best products are on badly designed websites and vice versa. As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover; we would rather look at the substance over the style any day.
So on to the substance….
With a guarantee to tackle weight loss, and also be a colon cleanser and detox product then now we are interested.
And with a bold claim that it will only take “15 days to a healthier life” GUARANTEED, then what’s not to like.
- Contains Diuretics and Laxatives
- Company is behind a string of other diet products with poor feedback
- Could be dangerous especially with long-term use
- No clinical evidence for the use of detox diet pills
What Does Colonoxy Claim To Do?
This is where the magic starts. Colonoxy claims to have the answer to the eternal question, “The Secret To Healthier Living.”
And the answer? Colon Cleansing of course!
It then goes on in pretty emotive language to describe how your colon is full of undigested food rotting away and at any moment you might die!
Of course this is all complete rubbish and is designed to frighten you in to purchasing the miracle cure, Colonoxy itself.
Some of the copy used includes:
- Death begins in the colon
- Rotting away inside you
- Aside from being disgusting, could also be deadly
- Festering inside the colon
- Dozens of health problems
Not very nice to read, and with no scientific basis to back these claims up at all.
So What Do The “Real” Experts Say About Colon Cleansing?
We have done a pretty in-depth article in to the Dangers of Detox Diet Pills here where we go in to detail how dangerous they might be to take.
In most cases they have serious side effects for people and no recognised Medical bodies ever recommend them for people. Not surprisingly those flogging detox diet pills ever produce ANY evidence to suggest they may be effective for what they are claiming.
They simply trade on fears, as is the case with Colonoxy. By scaring you they are hoping you might buy the product. Not a very nice way to treat people in our opinion.
So What Is Colonoxy and What Are The Ingredients For Colonoxy?
At this point we thought we might as well cut short the review right here. Experts do not recommend Colon cleansers, and using scare tactics is not very clever. However for the record let’s see what is in this incredible product.
Colonoxy is a blend of 18 ingredients and you are advised to take 3 tablets a day. This equates to taking 2100mg of the ingredients.
Because they have used a “proprietary formula” then this masks exactly how much of each ingredient you are taking. The ingredients include:
- Magnesium Oxide
- Flax Seed
- Cascada Sagrada
- Milk Thistle
- Uva Ursi
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Grapefruit Pectin
These ingredients appear to be a mixture of diuretics and laxatives, which is the normal format for these types of products.
The idea is for you to literally “crap-out” everything in your intestines and to reduce the level of water in your body. This has the effect of you losing weight as everything is dispelled.
But what they don’t tell you is that you will immediately put all this weight back on when the body returns to a natural equilibrium. The water levels will go back to what they should be and your digestive system will hopefully get back to a balanced state.
Does Colonoxy Have Any Side Effects?
We would imagine that long-term use of a product like Colonoxy would be far from healthy for your body.
By using high doses of diuretics and laxatives you are playing Russian roulette with your health. It is simply not healthy to use these types of products for long-term weight loss or detox benefits.
You are messing with the whole balance of the body, and doing so could have some dangerous effects in the long run.
By hiding exactly what levels of each ingredient is included in the mix, then the makers of Colonoxy are doing you even more of a disservice. There may well be an ingredient included that is at a dangerous level for some people but you would never know until it was too late.
Any Colonoxy Reviews From Customers?
There are the usual reviews for this type of product on the website, which range in date of posting from 2010 to 2012 with large gaps in between these two dates. It looks like this was pushed hard at consumers a couple of years ago, it lay dormant for a while and now they are pushing it again.
So Does Colonoxy Work?
If you want to become dehydrated and face the dangers of messing with your body’s natural balance, then quite possibly Colonoxy could work. As a healthy way to lose weight then we would think it was highly unlikely that Colonoxy could be of any use.
Where Can I Buy Colonoxy?
Colonoxy is only available online and is owned by Excitement Dietetics LLC, who are related to the rest of the dubious businesses pushing diet pills in Utah. We have warned customers on many occasions to always be wary of buying any type of diet product from companies in Utah as in most cases they will be left extremely disappointed.
This company also pushes several products including another Detox diet pill called Lipoclen, which we have also reviewed here.
Lipoclen went one step further and included 40 ingredients with most of them in common with Colonoxy.
Not surprisingly after our research in to Lipoclen we could only reject it.
Colonoxy cost $39.99 for one bottle, $79.98 for two bottles and a quite staggering $159.96 for 3 bottles.
What About A Guarantee?
These guys always offer a 90 days guarantee, which is admirable. However we have heard several stories from disgruntled customers saying it is extremely difficult to get their money back.
We also had one report that they try and offer another product to use instead of reimbursing the money.
DO NOT BUY COLONOXY!
We just don’t like colon cleanser products.
We would rather listen to the Medical industry than some guys in Utah with a dodgy track record.
It is not advised to take diuretics and laxatives as a long-term healthy way to lose weight. The potential side effects far outweigh any positive results, and any results would be extremely short-lived in any case.
The fact that they throw this product in free when flogging other diet pills says it all really.
