Colon cleansing and detoxing is popular within the Alternative medicine community and is believed to promote health and weight loss. Toxiflush from British company Healthspark is a supplement that fits into this niche and promises to be the perfect start to a weight loss diet.
Toxiflush contains a range of herbal ingredients that are commonly used in constipation and indigestion remedies such as Liquorice extract, Psyllium husk – an ingredient in OTC laxative Fybogel, plus Peppermint extract and Nettle extract – derived from stinging nettles and a powerful diuretic that may see you increase urine output.
Many of the other ingredients such as Garlic extract, Fennel, and Oregano are more commonly used in cooking rather than in supplement form but will cause effects if taken in high quantities.
Toxiflush contains 16 ingredients in total and at first glance, it is hard to see just what this supplement is supposed to do. Yes, this supplement does contain some ingredients known as having a laxative effect, but a point in its favour is that it does not include the real strong ones such as Cascara Sagrada or Senna. For a detox supplement, Toxiflush seems a little safer than many others on the market.
That said, is it worth trying a detox before you try to lose weight? The answer is a resounding no! Despite the popularity of detox supplements, they provide no benefit to health or weight loss. The idea of detox has its foundation in the medical beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks who believed that waste in the colon led to ill health and your body being poisoned by its own waste. It was disproven by the beginning of the 20th century.
Taking a detox supplement or colon cleanser does not clear unwanted waste held in the colon because the truth is the body does not work like that.
Your body does not hold ‘8 days of undigested waste in your colon’ as the product information claims. The colon cleanses itself and drinking more water and eating foods that are rich in fibre will help keep your digestive system healthy.
Take 2 capsules before bed with a full glass of water and drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
Healthspark is a British company based in Jersey that has been operating since 2008. The company manufacture a wide range of own brand health supplements, including Healthspark Weight Support – a diet pill which had some good points but we rejected in a previous review.
According to their information, Healthspark supplements are manufactured in the UK according to GMP (good manufacturing practice) industry standards.
According to the Toxiflush advertising, there are four key points about this supplement:
Toxiflush may help to support the body’s natural detoxification and elimination processes.
According to the product information,
The average person on a typical Western Diet holds 8 meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon.
This is not actually true.
Yes, it will probably work as a strong laxative and diuretic so you will get the feeling of inner purging. This does not help your health or weight loss (apart from a temporary effect upon the scales) and taken to extremes it is dangerous.
Taking Toxiflush for a month may cause dehydration so you will need to ensure that you drink plenty of water to replace all those lost fluids, which is actually pointless when you think about it. A better option is not to take Toxiflush at all and just increase your fibre and fluids in your diet.

Toxiflush is a detox and colon cleansing supplement. Serving size is equal to two capsules. Amounts here are per two capsule servings. Many of the ingredients are in highly concentrated form so are the equivalent of much higher quantities.
Toxiflush is stronger than it initially appears and although many of the ingredients are well known as culinary herbs make no mistake in high levels these can be dangerous. Expect a laxative and diuretic effect that will see you spending more time in the bathroom as well as potential side effects such as increased blood pressure and even allergic reactions.
We are never keen on algae supplements because of the risk of contamination and even so-called safe supplements such as grape seeds can cause problems if taken as here in high amounts.
We were unable to find any independent feedback so cannot bring you true-life customer experiences.
Instead, we must base our information on the ingredients list and although side effects will not affect everyone, be aware that there is a real risk for many. Use too long and you may become dehydrated.
Potential side effects include:
Detox supplements can cause dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include:
There are some reviews posted on the Toxiflush product page but unsurprisingly these are only positive. Some customers obviously like this supplement. One typical review states,
If like me you keep overdoing it, this is a great way to restart everything. Inner cleanse literally purges you out (losing a bit of weight immediately!) and let’s you start again. Definitely drink loads of water.
This has no real benefit for health or long-term weight loss but some customers like the purging effect of detox. Elsewhere we were unable to find any reviews.
HealthSpark offers a guarantee on all their supplements. The company state:
If for whatever reason you’re not entirely happy with your HealthSpark product, simply return the container to us (within 14 days of receipt), and we’ll give you a 100% refund straightaway.
You are advised to take the following steps:
You can buy Toxiflush direct from the Healthspark website. One tub of 60 capsules (one month’s supply) costs £12.99 and includes free delivery to UK addresses.
If you live elsewhere, Healthspark provides a designated web page for your country and ship internationally.
US customers can buy 60 capsules of Toxiflush for $21.00. Standard shipping is free worldwide.
Toxiflush is available direct to Australian customers for $23.90 AUD.
Toxiflush is available across Europe for $22.72 for 60 capsules.
Toxiflush is also on sale via Amazon 60 capsules costs £22.27 making the better deal available direct from Healthspark.
We usually like Healthspark supplements. The company is reputable and offer a guarantee and although this is short, we believe that they will honour it. The price is not bad either and includes free shipping.
The downside to Healthspark Toxiflush is that it is a detox supplement and despite the fact that people believe that detoxing and colon cleansing is helpful for health and weight loss, this is not true. There is no need to cleanse your colon and this idea of purging has its roots in ancient medical practice and not in the modern world.
However, we know that we are probably wasting our time trying to convince fans of detox that it is pointless and potentially dangerous, so if you are set upon this course of action, Toxiflush is very much like others on the market and not quite as dangerous as some.
Make sure you take with LOTS of water and don’t stay on it for more than a couple of days. A whole month is potentially dangerous.
There is no way we would ever approve a detox supplement so it is an easy choice.
We do not recommend Toxiflush.
