In our buying guide below, you'll find information on detox benefits, ingredients, and more. We've also included some recommendations at the end, including our favorite post-sugar-binge cleanse, the Dr. Schuhmacher Complete Detox .
A number of factors come into play when determining the cost of a detox cleanse, but generally speaking, you'll pay between $8 and $30. Length of the cleanse, number of ingredients, and type of ingredients will all factor into what part of the price spectrum you land on.
* Most detox diets and juice cleanses are extremely low in calories. In other words, they're starvation diets. Many cleanses are so low in calories that they'll negatively affect your hormonal health.
* The restricted eating involved in a detox diet can result in anticipatory deprivation and trigger preexisting food obsessions. If the thought of a restrictive diet makes you go on red alert and want to overeat ("my diet starts tomorrow so I'm going to fill up now"), let this be a warning.
Truth is, we already know how to improve our bodies and health: Cut down on excess calories and heavily processed foods and eat more whole foods, including fruits, vegetables and lean proteins.
Detoxing May Be Harmful.
Whole-body detox cleanses come in varying pill sizes and doses. While this may not be a concern for everyone, many people appreciate cleanses with smaller, easy-to-swallow pill sizes. Some cleanses even require taking different types of pills at certain times. If you want the simplest detox cleanse, look for one that includes all the necessary ingredients in one convenient pill.
