What You Should Know
The GNC Cleansing Formula is available online through the GNC website for $21.99 for 120 capsules and $36.99 for 240 capsules. The product is yet another colon cleansing supplement that hits up the weight loss market for a bit of sales. The GNC name is a trusted name in sports nutrition and weight loss supplements. The official website offers contact information and online ordering.
List of Ingredients
Psyllium Seed Husks Powder (Plantago ovato), Lactobacillus acidophilus Blend, Aspergillus niger Enzyme, Aspergillus oryzae Enzyme, Rhizopus Enzyme, Spirulina Powder, Cranberry Concentrate (Vaccinium macrocarpon), Green Barley Grass Powder, Chlorophyll, Goldenseal Root Powder (Hydrastis canadensis), Burdock Root Powder (Arctium lappa), Echinacea angustifolia Root Powder, Ginger Root Powder (Zingiber officinale, Sarsaparilla Powder (Smilax spp.) and Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract).
The GNC products are known for having a wealth of information and support online, but the GNC Cleansing Formula is not one of their best promoted products. The information offered is minimal, at best and includes a brief description of how fiber helps to move along the foods out of the body and enzymes help with digestion.
There are no testimonials on the website from people who have used the supplement to increase weight loss or even as a cleansing formula. The ingredient list is long, but that does not mean this product is more effective than other supplements on the market today.
Taking a closer look at the ingredient list, we have Milk Thistle that is commonly used for liver and kidney detox. There is really no colon cleansing properties associated with Milk Thistle. The Echinacea is another interesting ingredient. While this ingredient can knock out the bad viruses in the intestines, it will take some good along with it in the process.
The final concern about the program is the fact that GMC combines the cleansing ingredients with the treating ingredients. For instance, the Milk Thistle is in the same capsule as the Probiotics. This could mean the cleansing agents will remove the positive, building part of the supplement before the benefits can be seen.
Any weight lost with the GNC Cleansing Formula will more than likely be water weight from the increase in bowel movements. This weight loss will not be permanent.
- There is an official website for the GNC Cleansing Formula.
- GNC is a trusted name in supplements.
- The GNC Cleansing Formula contains ingredients that may not be aimed at colon cleansing.
- The product is not discounted if you are not a Gold Member.
- Cleansing is not synonymous with weight loss.
We love the idea of cleansing the body, but cleansing and weight loss are two different things. The GNC Cleansing Formula does not contain any fat burners or appetite suppressants. Even if GNC decided to include these ingredients, the cleansing formula would strip them from the body before they could be used as a positive part of this supplement.
