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.
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.”
Artichoke leaf extract is rich with benefits: it’s used as a traditional folk medicine because of its choleretic, diuretic and hypocholesterolemic activities, and has shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels. Probably its most significant benefit is exerted on the liver, with an ability to protect the liver and even help liver cells regenerate. Articoke also has justified long-standing use for remedying digestive and bowel problems.[10,11]
Artichoke, thanks to its wealth of polyphenols, also offers a potential skin anti-age effect; because of the phenolic compound chlorogenic acid, this leaf can act as a “free radical scavenger and UV protector.” Artichoke, overall, is a boon to both your skin health and your digestive health (combats dyspepsia).

Milk Thistle (or “silymarin”) is a powerful liver protector, and is considered the “most well-researched plant in the treatment of liver disease.” It’s favored for its flavonolignans, which are likely responsible for the extract’s “antioxidant effects and potential antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic, and antihyperglycemic actions.”
Historically, Milk Thistle has been used for liver disorders, such as hepatitis. cirrhosis, or gallbladder problems. It also acts as an antioxidant by “reducing free radical production and lipid peroxidation”; in addition, Silymarin has antifibrotic activity, which means it inhibits the binding of toxins to the hepatocyte cell membrane receptors and thus protects your liver.
And at last, Sarsparilla. This plant is foremost an inflammation fighter that possesses potential anti-inflammatory activities. Sarsaparilla has also shown to “modulate immunity, protect against liver injury, lower blood glucose and suppress cancer.” In addition, it has the capability to detoxicate, clear heat, and relieve dampness.
Sarsaparilla also contains saponins, which are known to “increase the absorption of other chemicals in the gut.” The root has also demonstrated improvements in appetite and digestion, along with diuretic actions.
Here's a 20% coupon to show you how effective My Gentle Detox is.
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 Detox 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, we recommend you try My Gentle Cleanse. Otherwise, if your bowel movements are infrequent or irregular, we recommend you try this detox.
