Due to recent items featured in the news, many people are concerned about the prevention of colon cancer, a disease that is on the rise in North America. There are now a number of companies that have produced all kinds of inner colon cleansers, Intracleanse being just one.
It is quite hard to glean any useful information about Intracleanse from their official website, but, fortunately, retailers of the brand do carry more details. The Intracleanse site does give a brief description of the product, mentioning that it is a two step process, but devotes more space to the ordering process. As with many companies, they feature logos and quotes from a number of news shows, such as CBS news and MSNBC that discuss the dangers of an unhealthy colon, but do not endorse Intracleanse in any way.
Another questionable sales tactic employed by the manufacturers is that they state the 14-day free trial offer will run out in five days (from the time of writing), in the hope that the consumer will order immediately. It is almost certain though that the site will make exactly the same claim anytime it is viewed.
Details Of Intracleanse
As mentioned, the Intracleanse site does not give a satisfactory amount of information about the product which makes it very hard for the consumer to make an educated decision regarding whether to buy it or not. The retail site Longlife solutions does provide more details including the ingredients and dosage instructions.
The first step of the Intracleanse process is designed as a pre-cleanse, its main purpose being to clean out the system thoroughly through increased elimination. For this, it uses a proprietary blend of psyllium husk, cascara sagrada, citrus and oat fibers. Added to this are apple pectin, senna, guar gum and barberry. For step two, the blend of ingredients are combined to detoxify and restore the intestine’s health and include dandelion, garlic, fenugreek, ginger, alfalfa, pepsin and the ‘good’ bacteria, acidophilus. No exact amounts of these ingredients are shown due to both formulas being proprietary blends.
Both steps of the Intracleanse process are carried out simultaneously, one capsule of each being taken morning and night and increased daily to a maximum of six capsules a day. Once the user is achieving 2 to 3 bowel movements a day, the dosage can be reduced.
Unfortunately neither websites provide details regarding the benefits of each ingredient and there is no warning against the potential dangers of using the laxative cascara sagrada in the long term.

Intracleanse – The Bottom Line
As stated earlier, many companies have taken advantage of the colon cleansing trend which, despite claims to the contrary, have not been proven to work thoroughly. It is incredible that a company such as Intracleanse would expect a consumer to choose their product over another given that they provide so few details. Although it may not be any worse than a similar brand, it would be far more advisable to opt for a product that discloses more essential information about itself.
