Dr. Natura Colonix Review

I am currently midway thru the month-long Dr. Natura Colon Cleanse, sent to me gratis by a representative of DrNatura in return for a review.*

This is one of the easiest cleanses I’ve ever been on, and I’ve done quite a few. No worries about always being by the bathroom, no drinking olive oil or strange shakes all day and no fasting (just the logical recommendations to cut back on or eliminate alcohol, coffee, and fatty or sugary foods). Oh, and no enemas.

Ingredients include… Psyllium Husk, Flax Seed, Fennel Seed, Licorice Root, Papaya Fruit, Grapefruit Pectin, Slippery Elm Bark, Althea Root, Rhubarb Root, Guar Gum, Alfalfa, Peppermint Leaf, Uva Ursi Leaf, Aloe Vera, Stevia Extract, and Natural Banana Flavor.

The tastes is that of the licorice and fennel more so than the banana flavoring, but still much more palatable than straight psyllium or worse, some of the bentonite clay I’ve had on other programs.

The licorice root concerned me, since it can cause high blood pressure in some people, and considering my salt-sensitivity, I’ve been monitoring it throughout. Also, when, after the first week, the daily serving was increased, I kept it the same and just added plain psyllium to make up the difference. I’d be interested to know if they’ve had the glycyrrhizin removed. Or maybe they could offer a version sans licorice?


Milk thistle seed extract (80% silymarin), black walnut hulls, grapefruit seed 4:1 extract, clove bud, Pau d’arco bark, pumpkin seed, myrrh gum, turmeric root, garlic bulb, hyssop (aerial parts), gentian root, elecampane root, prickly ash bark, yellow dock root, fenugreek seed, peppermint leaf, false unicorn root.


Senna Leaf, Buckthorn Bark, Fennel Seed, Chamomile Flower, Cinnamon Bark, Peppermint Leaf, Ginger Root, Milk Thistle Seed, Rose Hip Fruit, Passion Fruit, Uva Ursi Leaf, and Natural Citrus Flavor.

As you can see on this label, if you are pregnant or nursing, or are not an adult, this cleanse is not for you. For example, senna leaf has been known to cause premature contractions, and the safety of pau d’arco in general is still debatable. I encourage you to click around the links above and learn more about the ingredients and be sure to consult with your physician if you have any preexisting medical conditions.

Lastly, if you’re looking for poop stories and TMI pictures, they have those too; check out the testimonials and pictures linked at the top of their site. For me, it’s been pretty mild, probably because I get a lot of fiber in my diet anyway.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention, while you’re doing this cleanse, you should drink plenty of water, but not too much. Don’t worry, they give guidelines in the accompanying instructions. They also recommend taking a probiotic supplement. (They sell one, if you don’t have a favorite. I just ate plenty of vegan soy yogurt.)
