Over the years, I’ve seen people who take all sorts of supplements. Some of the supplements have been really over the top.
For example, some people think that eating clay will help cleanse their bodies. Now, there are some merits to different types of detoxification clays. But, I’ve never seen many benefits from people eating clay and expecting it to bind toxins.
I’ve seen some clients eat ridiculous amounts of clay and get all kinds of bowel problems.
Diet sprays are another product I don’t recommend. It’s marketed as a substance you can spray on your body, and you’ll lose weight as a result. There is no biological basis for that product claim.
Some people claim that zero-calorie products will help you lose weight. The idea is that the energy used to digest the food will lead to weight loss. Doesn’t work that way.
Most of the detox teas on the market are junk. When I look at the list of ingredients, it’s clear that most of the herbs have nothing to do with detox or cleansing.

- Poor Concentration, Brain Fog & Candida

I could formulate an effective detox tea, but I can pretty much guarantee that the taste won’t be very good. But, at least they will be effective compared to the sweet “detox” teas they sell.
I’ve even seen vampire repellant marketed online. Who buys vampire repellant? Same with the placenta and ant extracts that I’ve seen available for sale.
I have no doubt there’ll be many mushroom extracts out there that are useless. If you’re going to buy a mushroom extract, you know, like a reishi or a Ganoderma, like a good quality mushroom extract, go into a company that specializes in mushroom extracts.
Be careful. I’ve been in the supplement business for a long time, and I’ve seen so much junk for sale. You won’t get any therapeutic value from junk – the only thing it will “cleanse” is your bank account.
