In brief, What is Total Cleanse?
Total Cleanse is a product that is taking advantage of the colon cleansing trend that has become popular in North America. While it is true that colon cancer and related diseases are on the rise in this part of the world, a number of products like Total Cleanse claim to actually be able to help prevent illness in addition to reducing weight, fighting fatigue and even producing clearer skin.
The Total Cleanse website does not offer much information about the product, although it does explain the dangers of an unhealthy intestinal tract and what that may lead to. It uses quotes and logos from media sources such as CNN, CBS and Web MD to illustrate the point, and even goes as far as stating that Total Cleanse was featured on the Oprah show, although there is no actual proof of this.
The site goes on to explain how, through the prevalence of processed food and lack of activity, so many North Americans now require internal cleansing and that, along with the benefits stated above, Total Cleanse will also decrease gas and bloating, break-up and remove toxins and rid the body of parasites.
In doing so, the user of Total Cleanse may be able to lose between 10-15lbs in just 14 days, although this is certainly not a medically recommended amount (the norm being approximately 1-2lbs per week).
There seems to be a couple of alternate sites for Total Cleanse, including one that is presented in more of a ‘blog’ form. However, none of them mention any clinical trials that may have been performed on the product, nor do they provide a customer FAQ section.
All of them have some customer testimonials, which unfortunately do not show before and after pictures and mainly state how much more energy they have since taking Total Cleanse.
Details Of Total Cleanse
Despite the number of sites for Total Cleanse, none show the actual ingredients contained in the ‘herbal’ proprietary blend. It seems likely that the capsules contain an amount of fiber, although the type or amount is unknown. The fact that the ingredients are not listed is certainly a concern, particularly to those with severe food allergies. It is also not stated how much of the product should be taken and for what period of time.

In Summary – Total Cleanse Review
It is obvious from the amount of negative reviews this product has received that Total Cleanse is not one to be recommended. It is incredible that a company such as this can really expect consumers to buy a product without providing them ingredient information.
Whilst it may be tempting to try the free trial offer, customers should be aware that the major complaint filed against the company was that the orders are almost impossible to cancel (the company being hard to contact) thereby making them susceptible to being billed the full product price and enrolled into the auto-shipping program.
