Nature’s Secret is a US brand of supplements that comes under the better known Irwin Naturals company. Based in Santa Monica California, Nature’s Secret specialises in detox supplements which are available worldwide.
Nature’s Secret 15-Day Weight Loss Cleanse & Flush is a cheap supplement that may cause increased urination and bowel movements, so customers looking for these effects may feel satisfied. However, doing this is not good for health and can lead to a long list of potential side effects.
If you are taking prescription medication you need to know that this supplement contains grapefruit extract which will cause interactions. Also, it may cause miscarriage so is not suitable if you are trying to conceive.
Potential side effects may include diarrhoea, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, bloating, increase in urine output, nausea and vomiting, urine discoloration, and increased menstrual bleeding.
Some of the herbal ingredients, such as chickweed are known to cause allergic reactions such as hives and difficulty in breathing, so if this happens, you do need to seek medical advice immediately.
15 Weight Loss Cleanse & Flush contains Grapefruit powder, so you will need to avoid if you take prescription medication and have been told to avoid grapefruit. This supplement also contains Uva Ursi which can cause miscarriage so needs to be avoided if you are trying to conceive.
Taking this supplement could lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitations, confusion, fainting, inability to sweat or urinate, weight loss, and fever.
Nature’s Secret 15-Day Weight Loss Cleanse & Flush is not expensive and because it is on sale from a range of outlets, you can shop around for price.
Buy direct from Nature’s Secret website and it costs $17.99 for a 15-day supply of 60 capsules.
It is also on sale via Amazon USA from various sellers where it costs between $12.99 and $23.94, and it is on sale from Lucky Vitamin for just $9. 71.
UK customers can buy via Amazon UK for £11.26, or from other sellers such as e-vitamins, eBay, or Vitamin Grocer.
We are not impressed with Nature’s Secret 15-Day Weight Loss Cleanse &Flush. This supplement could actually be dangerous for some users and side effects are highly likely. Despite the low cost, this supplement is not a good deal; it will not help you kick-start your weight loss or make you slimmer.
If you suffer from digestive issues, you could try changing your diet to include more fresh fruit, fibre, and vegetables, and ensure you drink plenty of water. If simple remedies like this fail, you should visit your doctor to ensure you don’t have an underlying medical problem.
What you should not do is to turn to unproven OTC supplements like this one. We would not take Nature’s Secret 15-Day Weight Loss Flush & Cleanse ourselves, so there is no way we would ever approve this supplement to the Watchdog readers.

Nature’s Secret 15 Day Weight Loss is a detox supplement that the advertising claims will improve a slow digestion caused by an unhealthy diet that lacks fibre and fresh fruit and vegetables. So if this is you, and you suffer from digestive issues, you might find that making changes to your diet will improve your health and weight loss and you won’t need to take a supplement at all!
That said people like detox supplements and this idea of inner cleansing, and although there is no good medical or health reason for it, it remains popular.
The 15 Weight Loss Cleanse and Flush contains the usual blend of laxatives and diuretics seen in all detox supplements, including Cascara Sagrada – a plant extract with a very similar function to Senna plus Dandelion extract and Uva Ursi which increases urination. There is also prune extract, some prebiotics, and fibre including oat fibre. Check out the ingredients tab and the side effects tab for more information.
There are a couple of additional health risks that need to be highlighted here. This supplement contains grapefruit extract, so will not be suitable if you are taking many types of prescription medication.
It also contains Uva Ursi which is known to cause menstrual bleeding and miscarriage, so you should not use this supplement if there is any chance you might be pregnant or if you are trying to conceive.
Nature’s Secret is a US company based in Santa Monica California. The brand specialises in detox and cleansing products which are available worldwide. According to the about us information, the company is part of the better known Irwin Naturals described as
“Leading formulators of nutritional supplements with over one hundred unique products. Business growth opportunities span the continents, from South America to the Far East, from the Caribbean to the South Pacific, and much more.”
We covered an Irwin Naturals branded supplement called Green Tea Fat Burner in a previous Watchdog review.
Worryingly, we found that this harmless sounding supplement which was on sale at Costco had been found to be extremely high in undisclosed lead. This led to a lawsuit which appears to be still ongoing. Lawyers are looking for anyone who has suffered from liver damage as a result of taking this supplement. Source
Natures Secret 15 Day Weight Loss Cleanse and Flush is on sale from a wide range of retail outlets around the world including stores in the UK, Nigeria, and Europe. It is on sale in the USA from some well-known outlets including Amazon and Lucky Vitamin.
You can also buy directly from Nature’s Secret website.
According to the advertising,
Slow digestion is a common concern, especially given today’s diet that is often void of fresh fruits, raw vegetables and high-fiber foods. Poor assimilation of food can lead to gas, bloating and a feeling of low energy.
The product information proposes a solution to this problem,
Nature’s Secret® 15-Day Weight Loss Support Cleanse & Flush® supports healthy digestion and promotes cleansing of the digestive tract.
The ingredients in this formula can help to stimulate digestive function and may help give your abdomen a flatter appearance and reduce bloating.
Once your digestive system is cleansed, you will feel lighter, more energized and healthier.
The key features mentioned on the bottle are as follows:
It should increase bowel movements and urination while you are taking it, so yes, in that way this supplement will probably work. However, this is not an effective or safe method to lose weight and may cause numerous side effects.
The answer to a better digestion is actually provided in the advertising and is not to take this supplement but instead to improve your diet.
Adding more fresh fruit, vegetables, and fibre to your diet will improve digestive issues like constipation, as well as general health. Drinking plenty of water also helps “flush” your system far more effectively than any supplement.
That said this supplement does contain some beneficial ingredients but these will work much better in natural form. Eating prunes or drinking prune juice is an easy and natural way to improve constipation; oats are good for heart and blood pressure as well as weight loss. Beetroot is also very good for health and blood pressure.
There is no sane reason to detox. Healthy people already have a built-in detoxifying system with their liver and kidneys, lungs, and skin. Taking laxatives and diuretics are more likely to cause adverse effects than any positive benefits.
Serving size is equal to 2 capsules.
15-Day Weight Loss Cleanse & Flush contains a lot of ingredients (19 in total) and potential side effects are likely. These may include:
Taking this supplement could lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant, breast feeding or trying to conceive. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking prescription medication. This supplement contains grapefruit extract which interacts with many prescription meds. Cease use if you experience side effects and seek medical advice if necessary.
We found some customer reviews for this supplement via the various retail outlets, although not via Amazon where it is on sale but obviously not very popular.
Elsewhere there are a lot of negative comments (more than positive comments), so this supplement is obviously not working for many people.
The 15-day weight loss does wonders for me. I use to have a bowel movement once or twice a week. Now, I have a bowel movement at least two times a day. My craving for sweets are getting less and less. I don’t crave for sweets, if I do, I cannot eat a whole candy bar. I find that remarkable.
This product has made me extremely bloated, with a very upset stomach and I feel terrible. I eat fairly healthy, and exercise regularly. I thought this would be a good way to up the ante and make me feel even better. Now I’m just worried I may have messed up the balance of my stomach.
Some customers have experienced side effects with reduced bowel movements, such as this reviewer,
I have incorporated this product into my diet for several weeks. I have not seen any difference in my weight. It does give me gas and I find myself not having bm’s
The supplement is on sale via Amazon UK. Comments from British users include,
These really, really helped me and made my severe ibs symptoms less painful. I didn’t lose weight. But didn’t gain any either. I wish i could take these daily to help my ibs constantly.
Did nothing for me.
