Now, as you probably know, we launched our brand new product — DETOXY+ — last Friday with this blog post that contains some personal words from me, and why I love it.
Since that time, we’ve received a ton of questions via email, on the blog, on Facebook, Instagram — everywhere!
I spent a bunch of time doing my best to answer many over the weekend, but I know that you might not have seen those answers, or you may have new questions, so I wanted to take a moment to address them all here in one post.
You can bookmark this post and use this as a reference any time you’re unsure about anything related to DETOXY+.
So without further ado, here are the questions…
Do You Ship to Europe, Canada or Australia?
Not yet, but we are truly working on this and hope to be able to ship abroad, possibly through Amazon, in the not so distant future. I don’t have dates yet, but for all our international Beauty Detoxers, please know that we hear you and very much want to take care of you ASAP. Will keep you posted the second we are ready and able to ship outside the US!
How many capsules do I take?
Since everyone reacts differently, we recommend starting with 1 or 2 capsules at most, seeing how your product reacts, and then figuring out what’s right for you. If you notice greater elimination from just 1-2 capsules, and you’re happy with the results, stick with that. If you feel you need more, try increasing by one capsule and again seeing how your body responds. In general, we recommend using the product for at least 7 days straight in the beginning, and then after that, only as needed.
On a personal note, I’ve been taking Detoxy regularly for a while. For me, the right amount is 3-4 capsules, which I take regularly when I travel. I’ve been on the road for over 5 months now, so I’ve been going through a lot of it! In between traveling, I take it about twice a week, just to keep as much moving out as possible! I used to take it 3+ times a week, but have reduced it a little bit since it’s been a while. I may increase again if I feel I need to, as in the springtime, while I’m doing a Glow Bio cleanse or periods were I want to accelerate more cleansing. This MAY or MAY NOT be the right amount and frequency for you, so keep reading the next question!
How do I know if I’m taking the right amount?
Listen to your body. The product is designed to increase elimination, but not in a uncomfortable way. Take more if you’re not experiencing the increased elimination—however, take less if you find the experience to be uncomfortable in any way. If you experience diarrhea, take less.
When do I take the capsules?
To minimize any potential excess elimination or discomfort during the day, we recommend you take your capsules with water before bed. Then, it can work overnight and help you experience better elimination in the morning—which is best and most convenient.
What are the capsules made of?
The capsules are made of pure vegetable cellulose. This makes them easy to dissolve, 100% vegan and non-toxic.
What if I cannot swallow the capsules?
If you cannot swallow the capsules, you may open them up and mix the powder with water.
Is the product 100% vegan?
Yes, it is in fact “certified vegan”—meaning it has been independently certified to use no animal products or byproducts at any stage in the process of creating it.
Is it free of gluten, soy, corn or other allergens?
The product has no carbohydrates or macronutrients of any kind—and is 100% soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free.
Is it okay to take them daily?
It depends on your body. Some individuals choose to take 1-2 capsules daily for general maintenance, whereas others take more capsules during periods of cleansing, but not daily.
Detoxy is not habit-forming the way laxatives are, so you can incorporate them periodically or more regularly into your long-term health program.
Should I take the capsules with food?
To avoid indigestion, we recommending taking them at night, before bed and ideally a 2-3 hours away from food.
What if I have another brand, such as MagO7, that I purchased previously? What is the difference?
I know I’ve recommended Mag07 for years, it’s an excellent product and I still stand by that recommendation. DETOXY+ is a very similar product, so all my previous instructions from my books still apply, I just prefer the purity/quality of this source and the way it feels in my body. I also wanted to be sure we were using environmentally friendly packaging and the highest quality vegan caps, which we can do with this product, as we control the process. DETOXY+ is also 100% gluten-free and soy-free.
How does it work?
By releasing small amounts of oxygen into your colon, acidic waste is broken up and your stool is softened. This causes a cleansing action, helping the waste be eliminated more naturally, with pain, discomfort or struggle.
Can it help with Candida?
While we cannot make medical claims, given that oxygen helps kill anaerobic bacteria that includes yeasts and molds—it’s certainly possible that it may help. In general, balancing Candida requires a variety of lifestyle and dietary changes—there is no cure-all or quick fix.
Can it help my skin?
Because many skin issues are affected by colon health, it’s possible. Having old, waste stuck in your colon can lead to skin dryness for some, or for others, excess oil and acne. In general, anything you do to truly improve your digestion and elimination will create positive changes in the quality of your skin.
Also, an abundance of oxygen in your body can have a wide variety of anti-aging effects over time.
Will it make my urge to go to the bathroom uncontrollable? Will I need to be in the bathroom all day?
In general, no. For most people, the body reacts mildly and the urge to eliminate may be a little stronger and more regular—but certainly not extreme or uncontrollable. Of course, everyone is different and this is one reason why we recommend starting with just one capsule in the beginning—to see how your body reacts to it before increasing the amount. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to consult with a medical professional.
Will it give me diarrhea?
Diarrhea usually only occurs if you take too much at any given time. That’s again why it’s best to start with 1-2 capsules at most, if this is your first time. If you’ve been using another brand and are comfortable with a specific dosage, you should be fine using that same dosage of this product. If you’re really unsure about how much to take, or potential issues like diarrhea, it’s best to consult your doctor.
Is it okay to take with Probiotics+?
Yes, I highly recommend taking both for best results! Probiotics+ in the morning, and DETOXY+ in the evenings.
There are no issues in taking DETOXY+ along with Probiotics+, as the oxygen only works against unfriendly, anaerobic bacteria—not friendly flora or SBO’s. The one caveat is that both products are detoxifying, and you don’t want to overwhelm your system with too much detox unless you know it’s ready. So always error on the side of being gentle and conservative—take fewer DETOXY+ capsules to start, as there is no rush when it comes to cleansing. Simply love and support your body’s natural processes and you’ll get to destination soon enough.
Do I need to drink more water when taking it?
Yes, we recommend increasing water consumption by at least 1-2 glasses per day when using this product—more if you find yourself feeling dry or thirsty. The reason is that as the oxygen begins to break up the excess waste, the stool is softened and water is drawn to that area to help flush it out. Taking in more water supports this process and helps ensure you not only get results—but stay properly hydrated throughout the process.
Are there any side effects?
No “side effects” so to speak, however, there are some potential reactions to be aware of. First, the more you take, the more likely you are to experience loose stools or even diarrhea-like symptoms. However, this can be minimized by just taking less. In some cases, depending on the health of your colon, there be some initial discomfort or cramping due to gas build up before elimination. This is rare, especially if you start slowly, and typically passes in a day or so.
If you have more significant constipation or more severe Candida or digestive distress, there may be more initial discomfort until the waste is eliminated and your system is brought into balance. If you experience any cleansing reaction that makes you too uncomfortable, reduce the amount you take. Or if necessary, stop taking the product and consult a medical professional.
Is it okay to take while pregnant or nursing?
In general, it’s better to be extra safe when dealing with pregnancy, so please check with your doctor or qualified medical professional first. While DETOXY+ is very gentle (just magnesium and oxygen), everyone’s body is different and the body is more sensitive during and post-pregnancy. So it’s best to be on the safe side and check.
Can I give it to children?
Again, it’s best to consult with your doctor or medical professional when considering a supplement for children. Children may not only find it difficult to take the capsules, but also to control their bowels as the product begins working. Thus, we don’t recommend it for children.
Can it be taken while on prescription medications?
Though we know of no issues or contraindications for specific drugs, you should absolutely speak with your doctor to see if this product will affect or alter the results of your medication protocol. Safety first!
Does it ever become less effective or stop working for some people?
As your body gets healthier and cleaner, and this is usually the case when following a Beauty Detox regimen, you may require more of the product to experience faster elimination. That’s simply because there is less waste to break up.
Again, listen to your body and let it tell you what it needs. We’ve found the product to be non-addictive and, provided you’re living a healthy lifestyle, there is no risk for dependency or diminished effect over time. Less effect almost always means you simply have less waste to eliminate!
However, I have been taking it for years, and yes I have less toxicity in me from a few years ago…but there is always waste to detox! We are constantly eating, producing metabolic by-products and living in a polluted world.
How will I know that my digestive system is clean?
We live in a world where we’re exposed to smog, airborne pollutants, toxins in our water supply, EMF’s from phones and an endless list of other toxins. And because of that, cleansing is an ongoing processes that needs to be supported on a continual basis. That doesn’t mean you need to “cleanse” or take this product every single day, however we recommend having it on hand and making it a regular part of your wellness program—so that you keep toxic build up at bay, and maintain your best possible health.
