When you haven’t had a bowel movement in a day or two or–God forbid, longer–you know that occasional constipation is no joke.
Some people never have a problem going to the restroom, while some of us fear the entire experience.
We know what that’s like first-hand. When we created this colon cleanse formula over 15 years ago, it was for our friends and family. They needed relief badly.
Today, millions of people struggle with occasional constipation daily–some mild, some severe. And while there are several ways to cleanse your colon, this colon cleanse is different.
With My Gentle Cleanse…
- You don’t have to visit a doctor for a lavage.
- You don’t have to give yourself an at-home enema.
- You don’t have to give up eating certain foods.
- You don’t have to feel bloated all the time.
There’s a laundry list of reasons to choose an herbal cleanse: but what’s the #1 reason?
My Gentle Cleanse is 100% natural—and it feels like it.
You see, what makes this colon cleanse stand out from the others is the ingredients: a unique medley of herbal ingredients that help your intestines do what they were meant to do, but better.
Some ingredients act on the your small and large intestines; some protect your liver; and some help fight nasty digestive complaints. But ultimately, it’s the holistic herbal formula that does the all the magic.
We’re serious about ingredients, and you should be too. What you put in your body matters.
Read below to learn about My Gentle Cleanse’ ingredients.
The first ingredient, Cascara Sagrada, has been known as “sacred bark” since the second century. It’s an herbal aperient that relieves venous congestion and has a “soothing effect upon the rectal mucous membrane.” The herb’s anthraquinone derivatives and their glucosides (or cascarosides) act as an irritant to the colon to promote peristalsis and stool evacuation.
Cascara has long been considered “exceedingly efficacious” at combating dyspepsia (or upper abdomen discomfort). This herb should be taken in intervals instead of daily, long-term.
Senna, like Cascara Sagrada above, contains anthraquinone glycosides (here called sennosides) which make it an excellent herbal laxative; it also has widespread use as a “purgative, laxative, expectorant, wound dresser, antidysentric, and carminative”; it does its magic on your colon by acting on the large intestine to stimulate peristalsis.
Sennosides are best ingested through the alimentary canal (by mouth), which produces an ideal method of stimulating bowel action.
Fennel has a wide swath of benefits, such as “antioxidant, antitumor, chemopreventive, cytoprotective, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, and oestrogenic activities.” This seed is considered “folk medicine,” as it’s been used to cure digestive and respiratory disorders. When paired with a legume of the Senna family (Cassia obtusifolia L.), Fennel was found to “strongly alleviate the symptoms of constipation.”
Some studies have noted that Fennel may have some memory-enhancing and stress-reducing effects. The seed is also very rich in fiber, displays anti-inflammatory activities, and most importantly, regulates the motility of the intestine’s smooth muscles while reducing intestinal gas. It’s also been considered a safe alternative for constipation treatment, helping treat mild digestive disorders and stimulating motility.
Dandelion (or “blowball,” our favorite name) is a common plant with not-so-common health benefits, such as use as a diuretic and aid in minor digestive problems. The root has also shown to “protect against oxidative stress linked atherosclerosis and decrease the atherogenic index” (fatty plaques in arteries).
Dandelion root has long been used in gastrointestinal diseases and as a diuretic and digestive stimulant. It’s a perfect herb for colon cleansing, as it supplements digestive help with “choleretic, diuretic, anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory properties.”
Aloe Vera, like these other herbs, contains anthraquinones, which results in a strong laxative effect. In addition, it has added benefits of “anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic activity, and antibacterial and hypoglycaemic effects. It has also been promoted for “constipation, gastrointestinal disorders, and immune system deficiencies”; the former is likely because of the leaf’s gel contains aloin, which is metabolized by colonic flora to reactive Aloe-emodin, which is responsible for the purgative activity.
Not surprisingly, Aloe Vera was officially listed as a purgative by the U.S. pharmacopoeia in 1820, and is considered to be “the most biologically active of the Aloe species.” In a test with other laxative agents (such as psyllium), subjects were found with a range of improved constipation indicators (bowel movement frequency, stool consistency, etc.).

Start with 1 pill daily. If needed, reduce to 1 every other day. Drink plenty of water.
We recommend you take a capsule in the morning or at night, allowing several hours for it to take effect.
*Daily dosage is 1 capsule.
Can I go about my normal day?
Absolutely! When you first begin taking a detox supplement, watch for bowel movement patterns or responses in your own body. Then, once you know your body’s schedule, you will not have to worry about being “away from a bathroom.”
Can I use it every day?
As with most dietary supplements, daily long term use is not recommended. My Gentle Cleanse is best used occasionally as needed or on an intermittent schedule. We recommend that you incorporate lifestyle choices that include a healthy diet, plenty of water and exercise that may also help promote body functions. If you have chronic constipation, please consult with your medical professional.
How long does it take to “kick in”?
Generally, we say 12-24 hours. However, since our bodies are so unique and we each metabolize at different rates (with factors such as genetics, diet, and exercise playing a role), you will need to wait patiently to see how fast or slow your body responds.
Will it help me lose weight?
Possibly, but it would only be short-term because of the removal of excess fecal matter. If you’re looking for a “weight loss detox,” please remember that companies will tell you anything to get you to buy. If you do need to lose weight, try Allura Trim Weight Loss Sticks.
What’s the difference between the detox and cleanse?
The main difference between the two gentle formulas is the way they act upon your intestines (bowels). Both will help you cleanse your colon, but depending on your needs one may be better suited for you than the other. If this is your first time, we recommend you try the Colon Cleanse Duo so you can see which of the two works best for your body. If your bowel movements are painful or “hard,” and you want a gentler helper, you should try this cleanse. Otherwise, if your bowel movements are infrequent or irregular, we recommend you try My Gentle Detox.
