In this review, we look at the 15-day programme that is the Bio Schwartz Colon Detox and Cleanse, to see if it will actually work, or whether it will leave you running to the toilet every ten minutes with no good results at the end.
The Colon Detox and Cleanser is a 15-day programme, designed to clear out all the toxins and built up waste matter in the colon, making you feel healthier, less sluggish and lose weight. It also contains a probiotic blend, to help replenish the good bacteria in the gut after the cleanse. It is made by Bio Schwartz, a US-based supplements company.
The most common side effect of a colon detox and cleanse is a change in bowel habits. Some people may experience frequent loose stools and increased bowel movements. Dehydration is also a common side effect, as the body is expelling more water both through increased urination and moving more water into stools, due to the laxative ingredients present in this supplement. Headaches and constipation are two side effects that may occur due to dehydration.
In general, the side effects of a detox are temporary, and will only last whilst the product is being used. Side effects can be minimised by drinking plenty of water throughout the day (rather than a large amount all at once) and altering the dosage of the product used.
We have listed the side effects of particular ingredients under the side effects section below.
Bio Schwartz Colon Detox and Cleanser costs just $12.59 for 45 capsules from Amazon, or $16.95 from Bio Schwartz directly.
Overall, Bio Schwartz Colon Detox and Cleanser will not aid significant, safe, or sustainable weight loss. It is basically a combination of laxatives. The use of laxatives can cause weight loss, but this is just the removal of water and waste matter from the body, and once the detox programme is over, the weight will come back. The fat mass of the consumer is not affected at all, and the body will still absorb calories as usual.
Medical professionals generally agree that products such as this aren’t necessary as the body can and does detox itself when needed. If consumers do choose to use it, they absolutely should not use it for more than 15 days, as most of the ingredients are unsafe in the long term. They may also interfere with other medications, and women taking the contraceptive pill should be particularly mindful that it may stop it working effectively.
There is also the concern that Bio Schwartz are effectively buying positive reviews on Amazon by offering free products as an incentive. This makes us question the validity of the reviews and the ethics of the company.

Colon Detox and Cleanser is a wellbeing supplement made in the US by Bio Schwartz. It is designed to be followed for fifteen days in order to cleanse the colon of toxins and blockages, to leave the user feeling healthier and to kick-start weight loss.
Bio Schwartz are a US-based supplement and wellness company based in America. Their contact details are clearly listed on their website. They claim their products go under strict quality control and testing to make sure they are safe.
One of our concerns with the company is that they allow people to claim a free bottle in return for a positive Amazon review, which explains the extraordinarily high number of positive reviews on Amazon. This is against Amazon terms and conditions, but somehow, Bio Schwartz are getting around this.
Bio Schwartz claim that the product will:
It is going to certainly help cleanse the colon because it is packed with ingredients that are going to have a laxative effect. The user will lose lots of water and this, of course, shows as a loss in weight. However, as soon as they stop taking these, the weight will go back on.
The individual quantities of each ingredient are unknown.
Many of the ingredients have side effects. These include:
Psyllium husks: gas and stomach cramping. Needs to be taken with plenty of water so that it does not swell in the throat.
Aloe: Some users may experience stomach pain and cramps.
Flax seeds: In some people, flax seed may trigger abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and nausea, particularly when taken in large amounts or with insufficient fluids.
Cascara Sagrada Bark, Senna Leaf, and Buckthorn Bark: In the short term, these can cause stomach discomfort and cramps. In the long term (more than two weeks), they can cause dehydration, low levels of potassium, sodium, chloride, and other electrolytes in the blood, heart problems, and muscle weakness.

There are more than 2000 reviews on Amazon for this product, and the vast majority are these are positive. This comes as no surprise, as Bio Schwartz are known to offer the incentive of a free bottle of their supplement in return for a positive Amazon review. This means that we cannot trust any of the positive reviews.
You can buy it directly from the Bio Schwartz website or from Amazon.
