Forever Living Clean 9

Despite the majority of medical professionals stating that taking “detox” or “cleansing” products is not necessary and can actually be detrimental to health, these types of products are still incredibly popular, especially as weight loss aids.

Below we take an in-depth look at Forever Living Clean 9, a weight loss “combo pak” that contains numerous products from the Forever Living range of products, including laxative products.

What You Need To Know About Forever Living Clean 9

Forever Living Clean 9 is a program from Forever Living that combines several of their products together, with the box providing a nine day supply of the various products. The product is designed to “help you jumpstart your journey to a slimmer, healthier you” but the product information is rather vague about how this is achieved. Detoxing and Cleansing appears to play a huge role in the product, as does following a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD), neither of which are advisable for healthy weight loss. The product is incredibly expensive, and the program lasts for 9 days.

Forever Living, the manufactures of this product, operate as a multi-level marketing company, selling their products through distributers who earn a commission on products they sell.

What Are The Side Effects Of Forever Living Clean 9?

Because Forever Living Clean 9 consists of so many different products together, as well as its purpose being for “cleansing” the system, there is a long list of side effects that could potentially develop whilst taking this product.

Aloe vera is a laxative, and as such, potential side effects of aloe vera include cramping and diarrhoea.

Chronic consumption of aloe vera is discouraged. People allergic to garlic, onions, and tulips are more likely to be allergic to aloe. High doses of oral aloe are dangerous. Don’t take oral aloe if you have intestinal problems, heart disease, haemorrhoids, kidney problems, diabetes, or electrolyte imbalances. Laxatives should not be taken for more than two weeks at a time, ideally for less than a week at a time.

How Much Does Forever Living Clean 9 Cost?

Forever Living Clean 9 can be purchased from Forever Living independent distributers, who sell products for the company for a commission. Prices appear to vary somewhat between different distributers. On eBay, for example, we found one seller offering Clean 9 for £98.00, plus delivery charges. One distributer who operates their own website, primealoe, offers Clean 9 for £104.50, plus delivery charges, whilst another distributer website, buyforeverproducts.co.uk, charges £108.95 plus delivery charges.

Amazon’s UK website appears to be the most expensive option to buy Forever Living Clean 9 from. Here Clean 9 costs £146.99 plus delivery charges! From Amazon.com, the product is available for $98.59 plus delivery charges.

Overall, this is an incredibly expensive product, especially as it contains a small volume of product that is only good for a 9 day “cleanse”.

Our Verdict On Forever Living Clean 9

Overall, we are not impressed by Forever Living Clean 9 at all. We have previously rejected two of the products featured in this pack, Forever Garcinia Plus and Forever Therm, and the rest of the products found in Forever Living Clean 9 appear to be just as disappointing. The aloe vera gel is a laxative; the company do not disclose this in their advertising literature, instead describing it as a drink “to promote a healthy lifestyle and well-being”. This lack of disclosure is incredibly frustrating, as customers are not forewarned of the potential side effects of this, or any other supplement in the combo-pak. It is also not advisable to take a laxative for more than a week at a time, and never for more than two weeks. However, the aloe vera gel is marketed as a drink for daily consumption.

The manufacturers are actually very vague about how this product is supposed to aid weight loss, other than mentioning that it will help cleanse your system, indicating that it has a laxative effect. Any weight loss that consumers experience from this product is due to two elements; increased bowel movements from the laxative ingredients, and weight loss from the incredibly restrictive diet plan. This type of crash diet does yield fast results, but consumers are likely to put the weight back on just as fast, as they rehydrate and return to their previous dietary habits.

The product is covered by a 30 day returns policy that does seem to cover opened products as well. However, there are some old reports of individual distributers refusing to give refunds, even within the 30 day window.

Overall, we do not recommend Forever Living Clean 9 to our readers.

Forever Living Clean 9 Facts

  • Manufactured by Forever Living
  • Individual products available separately
  • Features Laxatives

Forever Living is a supplement manufacturer that makes ‘wellness and beauty products’ and is based in Scottsdale, Arizona. The company appears to operate on a multi-level marketing business model, with independent sales consultants, also known as Forever Business Owners, selling the company’s products in exchange for a commission on sales. We advise our readers to not sign up to join any multi-level marketing companies (MLMs) as studies show that the vast majority of distributers for these types of companies do not make their initial investment back, let alone make enough money to support themselves financially.

There is also a list of fruits and vegetables that can be freely eaten whilst following Clean 9 (although there is then immediately a reminder to consume them in moderation).

Customers can contact Forever Living using the information found on the official Forever Living website. Customers who want to return products are most likely going to be redirected to the individual distributer that they purchased from, unless that distributer is no longer with the company.

The product comes with an instruction booklet, which details the diet plan that you need to follow for the 9 days you are taking the supplements. There is also a list of “free” fruits and vegetables that you can eat throughout the nine days, but you are also told to eat them in moderations.

Forever Living Clean 9 Concerns:

  • Incredibly restricted diet
  • Relies upon laxatives
  • Customer complaints about taste and side effects

What Does Forever Living Clean 9 Claim To Do?

The manufacturers provide the following description of the product’s benefits:

“The Clean 9 Program can help you jumpstart your journey to a slimmer, healthier you. This effective, easy-to-follow cleansing program will give you the tools you need to start transforming your body today.

Over the next 9 days, you can expect to look better and feel better and begin to eliminate stored toxins that may be keeping you from absorbing the maximum nutrients in your food. You’ll also begin to feel lighter and more energized as you prove you can take control of your appetite and see your body begin to change.

Each Clean 9 Pak contains:

2 1 liter bottles of Aloe Vera Gel®
1 pouch of Forever Lite Ultra® Shake Mix
Clean 9 Nutrition Pak
18 tablets of Forever Therm™
9 stickpaks of Forever Fiber™
54 soft gels of Forever Garcinia Plus®”

Does Forever Living Clean 9 Work?

There are so many different elements to this combo-pak product, with numerous ingredients, that it can be difficult to conclude whether or not the product works. It also does not help that the manufacturers are so vague about how the product is supposed to work to aid weight loss.

The diet element is probably going to cause the most weight loss; the first two days essentially consist of drinking lots of water, taking lots of the laxative aloe vera gel, and consuming just one shake; this combination of laxatives and almost no calories is bound to cause immediate weight loss.

Garcinia Cambogia is seemingly a fairly unpredictable weight loss aid. In one study that is often misquoted, the participants who took Garcinia Cambogia did lose weight whilst on the trial, but the placebo-taking group actually lost significantly more weight than the Garcinia Cambogia-taking group. There are also studies that show no changes in metabolism, appetite, or weight loss whilst using Garcinia Cambogia. At best, Garcinia Cambogia could aid weight loss in some people, but its mechanisms are not well understood, and it seems to be highly unpredictable at best.

Does Forever Living Clean 9 Have Any Side Effects?

Because Forever Living Clean 9 consists of so many different products together, as well as its purpose being for “cleansing” the system, there is a long list of side effects that could potentially develop whilst taking this product.

Customers are instructed to follow an incredibly restricted diet plan whilst taking Forever Living Clean 9, and so side effects could include hunger, feeling light headed, and fatigue. One distributer states on their sales website that headaches are incredibly likely in the first few days, playing it off as if it was normal.

Aloe vera is a laxative, and as such, potential side effects of aloe vera include cramping and diarrhoea.

Chronic consumption of aloe vera is discouraged. People allergic to garlic, onions, and tulips are more likely to be allergic to aloe. High doses of oral aloe are dangerous. Don’t take oral aloe if you have intestinal problems, heart disease, haemorrhoids, kidney problems, diabetes, or electrolyte imbalances. Laxatives should not be taken for more than two weeks at a time, ideally for less than a week at a time.

Raspberry ketone is an under-researched product, especially in the quantities found in supplements. Whilst it is considered safe for use in food in small doses, the higher doses used in supplements could cause jitteriness and other symptoms. Some users of raspberry ketone have reported feeling ‘weak’, restlessness, insomnia, chest pains, headaches, and nausea. Some people have also had allergic reactions to raspberry ketone based suppl ements, with symptoms including itching, rashes, trouble breathing, and a racing heart-rate.

Significant quantities of caffeine can cause side effects such as headaches, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and problems sleeping. Green tea can also cause constipation.

Because the manufacturers do not disclose the quantity of caffeine per serving, we advise all consumers to avoid all other sources of caffeine whilst using this product in order to minimise the chances of side effects occurring. This includes tea, coffee, and energy drinks.

Garcinia Cambogia can cause some side effects including nausea, digestive tract discomfort, and headache. Its long term safety is unknown, as clinical studies typically focus upon short term use of up to 12 weeks.

Chromium can lower blood sugars levels and as such should not be used by diabetics without first consulting their doctor. Low blood sugar levels can lead to light headedness, dizziness, and even fainting. Customers who have not eaten for several hours are more likely to experience these side effects.

CLA, found in Safflower oil, can cause stomach upset, diarrhoea, nausea, and fatigue. CLA can also increase triglyceride levels in some cases.

Caution:
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Not suitable for anyone taking any medications unless they have express approval from their doctor, as aloe can interact with certain medications, and some believe that it can prevent the absorption of other medicines. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulant ingredients. Not suitable for anyone with high blood pressure, or any other cardiac-related health issues. Not suitable for diabetics.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Forever Living Clean 9?

There are numerous reviews of Forever Living Clean 9 online. The product has been discussed at length on forums, including NetMums (this is why many of the comments below appear to be a part of a larger conversation than individual product reviews). Customers appear to be divided about the product, and even those who lost significant amounts of weight admit the program is hard and that there are some issues with the products.

I’m going to be doing clean 9 soon, my sis in law has done it and lost 2 stone and I know a lady doing it now and she has lost 7lb in 5 days.

I lost 8lb and 7 inches on the detox, my friend lost 9lb and 13 inches.

Its good – yes a lot of money but it is hard I won’t lie!!! But results are amazing. I have carried on with calorie counting and exercise and after weigh in today am up to 11lb lost so its staying off!

This is amazing, but quite tough. The Aloe Vera solution is completely disgusting, but the milkshakes very nice. I lost 10 lbs in 9 days and feel amazing. Worth every penny to get you kick started. Good luck!

I stuck to this for the 9 days only lost 2 lb in weight. Didn’t have loads of energy afterwards and didn’t change my eating pattern as eat well anyway. Wouldn’t waste money on it.

Followed this exactly, lost a couple of pounds while doing it and put the weight straight back on the next day. It gave be terrible spots and when I contacted the seller to ask a question I got not reply (it’s been about 3 weeks now).

Every time the products entered my system I felt extremely ill and was physically sick after the second day, not at all worth getting ill.

My sister done the clean 9 detox and didn’t find it successful at all! the concept was a bit extreme as well as from what i believe you can only have the aloe supplements for the first two days and nothing else, after that its a mix of pills, shakes and the aloe gel. I understand its a healthy mix of supplements but surly that can’t substitute for the real thing? It is alot of money as well my sister was disappointed with her results and was and was out of pocket about £120 odds!

    I’m so sick of the concept of cleansing. Products that make the claim are either very unhealthy (such as ones with laxative function) or don’t offer anything that even remotely resembles a cleansing effect.
