ColonMate is a product hailed as an ‘All natural miracle pill’ whose website is basically a one-page advertisement where the main feature is ordering information.
The overall look of the site is clean, professional and well laid out. There is a fairly lengthy section regarding the importance of fiber in the diet and clinical studies performed as evidence of this. It goes on to explain the different types of fiber available and the role it plays in our digestive system, particularly the intestines. ColonMate is designed to ensure the effective removal of toxins from the body and in turn leaving the user energized, less bloated and lighter.
The site has a good FAQ section which answers questions about the ingredients in the product, how it should be taken and what should be expected in terms of weight loss. There are also a few brief testimonials which unfortunately do not provide much insight.
Details Of ColonMate
The ColonMate website is severely lacking in important information about the contents of the product. The only facts about the ingredients are contained in the FAQ section which lists them as Rhubarb, Buckthorne, Psyllium, Licorice, Ginger, Fennel, Goldenseal and Cascara Sagrada. The ingredients are contained in a proprietary blend so no actual amounts are shown, nor is it known whether the capsules contain any additional substances. The recommended dose for ColonMate is simply one capsule in the morning and one in the afternoon, although no specific times are mentioned.

ColonMate – The Bottom Line
There are too many dubious aspects surrounding ColonMate to be able to comfortably recommend it. Whilst it is good that they offer a free trial, the refund for shipping and handling is only available for 15 days from the day of mailing, certainly not enough time to allow for delivery, trying the product and returning it. Unfortunately it is another offer that looks better in writing than in practice.
In addition to this, consumers generally do not like taking a product where the full ingredient list is not disclosed, especially when there are many better alternatives on the market.
