There are 40 different All-Natural Ingredients in this colon cleansing program. The main ingredient in the Colonix Intestinal Cleanser is psyllium, which is a common additive in over-the-counter laxatives and fiber supplements such as Metamucil and Effersyllium.
Psyllium is used in Colonix as a 'bulking' agent. It works by absorbing water and 'bulking' up inside your colon.
It then expands and grabs a hold of the impacted fecal matter that is stuck on the inside of your intestinal walls. (View Colonix Ingredients
Dr. Natura seems like a reputable company. They have been around for about ten years and hold a major portion of the colon cleansing market. The customer service staff is friendly and knowledgeable of their products, however, they don't seem to know much about their competitors products. In our opinion, Dr. Natura should know at least something
about their competitors products, so they can explain the difference to any customers that may wonder how Colonix differs from Blessed Herbs
. Dr. Natura's customer service representatives are only available from 8am to 10pm on weekdays and 9am to 5pm on weekends (EST).
The Advanced Internal Cleansing Program
is a bit pricey at $88. Keep in mind that this is one month's worth of both colon cleansing and parasite cleansing. For one month's worth of just the Colonix Intestinal Cleanser
, it's a much more reasonable price of $32. Of course, if you buy multiple month's worth, the prices go down. So, obviously, Dr. Natura recommends you start with a three month cleanse. They also offer free shipping to all orders over $60.
Common Complaints According to Dr. Natura:
No common complaints, besides the standard detox symptoms. When pressed further about what defines "detox symptoms", the customer service representative was vague in his response, answering "You feel like you have the flu."
Common Complaints According to Posts in Health Forums:
Severe Headaches, Constipation, Bloating, Cramps were the most common symptoms listed. Other people complained about the complicated and strenous steps involved with the Advanced Internal Cleansing Program
. A lot of people felt that it was too "life-altering" in the sense that you can only eat certain foods, and you must drink a certain amount of water. Too much or too little water can cause problems within your body, such as constipation and headaches.
The labels on each individual product are done well. Very simple, yet effective design. Some may be distracted by the bright yellow to realize that there is not an FDA Compliance Statement
on any of the product labels. This is a BIG no-no in the dietary supplement world. Although, it must be noted that the FDA Compliance Statement is printed on the outside of the Advanced Internal Cleansing Program
box. But, if you are like many customers who order only individual products such as the Colonix Intestinal Cleansing
fiber, that statement is NOT on the label, which results in a major infraction of the FDA guidelines.
is a well designed, fully functional website with long, text-filled pages. The site features scattered images of staff, endorsing doctors and satisfied customers. These images give the site more of a personal feel. The top portion looks great, but once you start reading the relevant information below, your eyes start to hurt and it's easy to get bored. This site could use shorter pages with better organization from page to page. However, Dr. Natura makes up for the LONG pages by filling the side with exerpts of customer testimonials and pictures of those customers, so you can see "who" said it. This is a definite plus, and has probably contributed to many sales.

Possible Consumer Concerns:
, which has been known to do radical things within the human body. Senna should never be used for more than 7 consecutive days, without the supervision of your doctor. Anyone suffering from Severe Hemorrhoids, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's disease, Diverticular Disease, Blood Vessel Disease, Heart Disease, Anemia, or Abdominal Hernia should NOT take senna products. Pregnant women should also not take Senna. Common side effects of Senna can include intense cramping and pains in the abdomen, nausea, electrolyte imbalance, liver toxicity, rash, and swelling of the finger tips. The use of Senna in the Kleri-Tea
is very concerning to us. Please consult with your doctor before using any colon cleansing products containing Senna.
We can NOT stress enough how important it is to drink the recommended amount of water while using the Colonix Colon Cleansing Program. This is probably the most common mistake of users of this product. If you don't drink enough water, it's very likely that you will become constipated and experience cramps. On the other hand, if you drink too much water, the product will be too diluted, and won't properly work. This adds to the complexity of this product and is one reason there are so many complaints from consumers in forums.
Another confusing step in this colon cleansing kit, is that the Kleri-Tea must be boiled in a cup of water. You cannot microwave the water, because the radiation from the microwave changes the molecular structure of the water, and will cause the Kleri-Tea to be less effective. Therefore, preparing the tea everynight before bed can become quite an inconvienence.
Cheaper Alternatives to Colonix:
Since the Colonix Advanced Internal Cleansing Program is priced a bit high for only one months worth of colon cleansing, we would recommend that you go to any local healthstore or find one online, and order psyllium husks seperately and make your own shakes. This is very simple to do, and will save you lots and lots of money in the long run.
