7-Day Detox For Weight Loss—Do These Supplements Really Work?

Rate This

As you’ve probably noticed, there are lots of ads in magazines and newspapers that
promise weight loss really really quickly. It seems that the faster the product can promise to help us shed pounds, the more people really want to believe in it. Let’s face it—being on a diet can be hard work, so if we can find something that will reduce the number of days we have to spend counting calories, many of us are more than willing to hear all about it.

This certainly seems to be the philosophy behind the 7-Day Detox program. It is a dietary supplement that claims to help us lose weight by detoxifying the body and thus helping to burn away fat. As the name implies, the product claims that it will help us do both of these things in a mere seven days.

According to Diet Spotlight, a website that gives what appear to be unbiased reviews of a bunch of weight loss products, people who use 7-Day Detox can look forward to swallowing six capsules a day. The product contains 34 ingredients, including chromium polynicotinate (which has been found to help boost energy levels while helping process fat), potassium gluconate, and our good old friend caffeine (called caffeine anhydrous in the product), which as you probably already know increases mental alertness and gives our energy levels more zing. The product also contains some basic herbal ingredients like dandelion root, cranberry, apple pectin, and aloe vera.

Diet Spotlight noted that 7-Day Detox does list all of the product’s ingredients on its official website, which seems to be somewhat unusual for this type of weight loss supplement. And in the case of the official 7-Day Detox product, Diet Spotlight said it comes with a money-back guarantee, which they also see as a plus (and I can’t really argue with them on that point either).

As far as disadvantages, some people might balk at taking six capsules every day, and some people may be allergic to some of the ingredients in the product (with 34 different herbs, vitamins, minerals, and other products to contend with, this seems like a reasonable concern). And since it contains caffeine, which is a diuretic, the folks at Diet Spotlight felt that this might be a “con” as well.

Customer testimonials on the official website are generally glowing, and people are reporting that they lost weight while taking this product. The Slimming Pills Review website noted that many of the ingredients in 7-Day Detox have been found to help with detoxifying the liver and the kidney as well as blocking fat.

I did try to find some official studies to back up the claims the 7-Day Detox company makes, but I came up empty. If you are aware of a neutral study on the product, please let me know below in the comment section—I would love to read about it.

Overall, it seems like the 7-Day Detox product has good intentions and maybe even good science behind it, but I have to question about how much good can be done in the short span of a week. What happens after the seven days are up and people go back their usual ways of eating?

Have you ever tried a 7-Day Detox supplement? Did it help you lose weight and did you have more energy while you were taking it? I look forward to hearing from you!
