Below we take an in-depth look into Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix, to see whether this powdered detox blend actually cleanses the body or is just a pricey placebo.
Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix is a powdered supplement that is designed to be mixed with morning smoothies, water, or juices. The manufacturers claim that their “supergreen” mixture can detoxify and cleanse your body, as well as provide you with a source of healthy antioxidants. Detox Mix is also advertised as being vegan-friendly, organic, and sugar-free.
The claims of “detoxification” essentially means that this mixture works as a laxative and diuretic, meaning that customers should expect to be making more frequent bathroom visits! Laxatives can sometimes be harmful, especially when used daily for long periods of time. Customers may find themselves becoming dehydrated, and those who stick with laxatives for the long-term may also become dependent on them in order to have successful bowel movements. They can also affect the contraceptive pill, so exercise a little caution before relying too heavily on laxatives.
Other potential side effects of using this product include diarrhoea, fatigue, bloating, and gas.
Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix appears to be relatively cheap to buy, although this may be because it is being discontinued (it is listed as out of stock on most websites, including the official Ibiza Superfoods website). If you’re interested in buying this product, it may be worth grabbing it now whilst stocks last!
UK-based customers can buy a 200g pack of Detox Mix from Holland & Barrett for £18.16. European customers can buy the same pack from www.biolovers.nl for €24.95. It is not entirely clear how long a 200g pack is expected to last, although it should last for more than 30 days if taking one spoonful per day.
Although the idea of a “supergreen” blend may seem appealing, this blend of 6 herbal ingredients doesn’t really do anything useful.
Promises of detoxification always seem suspicious to us, because it’s hard to know what toxins the manufacturer is claiming to cleanse you of. When examined more closely, it’s clear that this product doesn’t really target anything specific, and instead simply gives you more frequent bowel movements and makes you urinate more often. The product does admittedly offer a few useful antioxidant-rich ingredients, but it’s fair to say this Detox Mix does not really offer much in the way of overall health benefits.
In addition, there are virtually no customer reviews posted to Amazon or other comment sections online, making it impossible to see whether other customers experienced any benefits or found the taste of the drink satisfactory.
This product may have a reasonable price tag and a money-back guarantee (for UK customers) but it’s seeming pointlessness makes it impossible to recommend.

Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix is a supplement that claims to provide “healthy detoxification and elimination”. The formula is predominantly made up of powdered algae, protein-rich plant matter, and other botanicals. It is designed to be mixed with a smoothie and consumed in the morning, although customers are also advised to take multiple doses per day if required.
This product is manufactured by Ibiza Superfoods, a relatively young company from the UK. Launched in 2016, Ibiza Superfoods mainly sells superfood juices and powders through the Holland & Barrett chain. The company can trace its origins back to the sunny party island of Ibiza, where its founder, Verity Smith, made money selling superfood-based “recovery aids” for strung-out partygoers. The company can be contacted via email ([email protected]).
The directions for use are as follows:
Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix is described by the manufacturer as a “premium supergreen blend” that promotes “healthy detoxification and elimination”. Phrases like “detoxification” are infamously hard to untangle in the world of supplements, and nowhere is it stated exactly what “toxins” are being banished from the body.
Some of the ingredients used in this product are also said to support healthy gut/liver/kidney function and provide energy/endurance. Detox Mix is also advertised as being a good source of antioxidants for better overall health.
As it turns out, the phrase “detoxification and elimination” essentially means that this product will be making customers visit the bathroom more often. The ingredients list is mainly made up of natural diuretics and laxatives, which are known to increase urination and bowel movements. However, there’s no reason to think that you’ll be excreting more “toxins” than normal or that there is any benefit of having more toilet breaks!
Some of the ingredients found in this product are rich sources of antioxidants, which could support better overall health.
The ingredients found in Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix are listed below. The manufacturers fail to list proper ingredient quantities, instead using an odd percentage system (see below). Our best guess is that the percentage is supposed to indicate the way that the ingredients are broken down proportionately per average serving (so 25% of the powder is chlorella, 20% is nettle, etc.)
The main purpose of this product is seemingly to provide a kind of laxative effect. Laxatives are not necessarily dangerous if used sensibly, but can cause issues when over-used.
Using laxatives can lead to both dehydration and a deficiency of electrolytes, which can both lead onto more serious side effects, especially if not dealt with properly. Side effects of low levels of electrolytes include muscle cramps, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, trembling, muscle weakness, and stiff or aching joints. Laxatives can also interfere with the proper function of the contraceptive pill, and longer-term use of laxatives could lead to dependency and a weakening of the bowel muscles.
Alfalfa can cause the unusual effect of making the skin more sensitive to the sun, which can result in sunburn for lighter-skinned people. Chlorella can cause a range of side effects including diarrhoea, fatigue, bloating, and gas. More serious allergic reactions are also not out of the question and could cause breathing problems or even anaphylaxis. Speak to your doctor immediately if you notice any of these symptoms.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
Unfortunately, we were only able to find one customer review online, which reported a positive experience. However, the lack of reviews makes it difficult to see whether most buyers have had good experiences with the product or whether the majority of customers enjoyed the taste.
Great Product. Been using this awhile now and it really does help detox. I love the taste and drink it with water .Love the fact that it’s all good clean stuff with these Ibiza Superfoods so you know you are only putting good stuff in your body.
The official manufacturer, Ibiza Superfoods, does not offer a money-back guarantee. However, Ibiza Superfoods do not sell the product directly to customers, instead selling it through Holland & Barrett. When buying from the online store, Holland & Barrett allow customers to return opened products within 30 days for a full refund. The policies of other 3rd party retailers may differ.
Ibiza Superfoods Detox Mix is listed as “out of stock” on most of the webstores where it is normally sold, and it is possible that the product has been discontinued. It is still available to buy on the Holland & Barrett website for UK customers. European customers can also purchase packs from www.biolovers.nl.
