In brief, What is Colotox?
Cleansing and ridding the body of built-up waste has become very popular recently, with many companies claiming it also enables weight loss. Colotox is a product designed to do just that and has an informative website that provides a good amount of information.
The website begins by using quotes from some major news programs such an MSNBC and CBS, showing that colon cancer is the second leading cancer in the U.S. and as such, colon health is more important than ever.
The quotes do not actually mention the product Colotox and the same statements have shown up on a number of other colon cleanser websites.
One good aspect of the Colotox website is the FAQ section which answers all the pertinent questions such as dosage instructions, expected results etc. There are some customer testimonials shown, although the site does state further on that the people shown are paid, models.
Colotox is designed to help the user cleanse the intestine by producing regular, easy bowel movements. This in turn rids the body of the toxins caused by the modern, high-fat diet and environmental pollutants. By cleansing the colon, the manufacturers claim that not only can the user lose up to 25 lbs but also gain energy and increase their immunity, benefiting their overall health.
What are the Ingredients of Colotox?
The product label for Colotox is shown and lists the ingredients in a proprietary blend, meaning the exact amounts are not disclosed. The ingredients in Colotox are all natural and include:
- Psyllium husk seed
- Fennel, buckthorn
- Cascara sagrada
- Rhubarb, licorice
Cascara Sagrada is often listed with a warning as it is thought to be unsafe when used over long periods of time, although no warning is given here.
Colotox is to be taken at a dose of 1-3 capsules (starting with one and building up to 3 in order for the body to adjust to the ingredients). There is no recommended time period for taking Colotox, but it is implied that regular usage will obtain optimum results.

In Summary – Colotox Review
There are so many similar colon cleansers on the market, it is hard for a consumer to know which one is best and even if they are really needed. Many healthcare professionals have the opinion that this type of cleanser does nothing to improve the health of the colon and there are no clinical trials to prove that they help the user lose weight.
It should be noted too that, as one disgruntled customer pointed out, a 60 capsule bottle will not actually last for one month if taken at the maximum dosage. In addition to this, given the problems some consumers have had canceling orders and not receiving the product, if anyone is still interested in trying a colon cleanser, it would be recommended that they find a brand with a better reputation.
