Please note: We are no longer selling our previous version of Detoxy+. Our new formula launches in January 2019.
Now, as you probably know, we launched our brand new product — DETOXY+ — last Friday with this blog post that contains some personal words from me, and why I love it.
Since that time, we’ve received a ton of questions via email, on the blog, on Facebook, Instagram — everywhere!
I spent a bunch of time doing my best to answer many over the weekend, but I know that you might not have seen those answers, or you may have new questions, so I wanted to take a moment to address them all here in one post.
You can bookmark this post and use this as a reference any time you’re unsure about anything related to DETOXY+.
So without further ado, here are the questions…
Do You Ship to Europe, Canada or Australia?
Not yet, but we are truly working on this and hope to be able to ship abroad in the not so distant future. I don’t have dates yet, but for all our international Beauty Detoxers, please know that we hear you and very much want to take care of you ASAP. Will keep you posted the second we are ready and able to ship outside the US!
How many capsules do I take?
Since everyone reacts differently, we recommend starting with 1 or 2 capsules at most, seeing how your product reacts, and then figuring out what’s right for you. If you notice greater elimination from just 1-2 capsules, and you’re happy with the results, stick with that. If you feel you need more, try increasing by one capsule and again seeing how your body responds. In general, we recommend using the product for at least 7 days straight in the beginning, and then after that, only as needed.
On a personal note, I’ve been taking Detoxy regularly for a while. For me, the right amount is 3-4 capsules, which I take regularly when I travel. I’ve been on the road for over 5 months now, so I’ve been going through a lot of it! In between traveling, I take it about twice a week, just to keep as much moving out as possible! I used to take it 3+ times a week, but have reduced it a little bit since it’s been a while. I may increase again if I feel I need to, as in the springtime, while I’m doing a Glow Bio cleanse or periods were I want to accelerate more cleansing. This MAY or MAY NOT be the right amount and frequency for you, so keep reading the next question!
How do I know if I’m taking the right amount?
Listen to your body. The product is designed to increase elimination, but not in a uncomfortable way. Take more if you’re not experiencing the increased elimination—however, take less if you find the experience to be uncomfortable in any way. If you experience diarrhea, take less.
When do I take the capsules?
To minimize any potential excess elimination or discomfort during the day, we recommend you take your capsules with water before bed. Then, it can work overnight and help you experience better elimination in the morning—which is best and most convenient.
What are the capsules made of?
The capsules are made of pure vegetable cellulose. This makes them easy to dissolve, 100% vegan and non-toxic.
What if I cannot swallow the capsules?
If you cannot swallow the capsules, you may open them up and mix the powder with water.
Is the product 100% vegan?
Yes, it is in fact “certified vegan”—meaning it has been independently certified to use no animal products or byproducts at any stage in the process of creating it.
Is it free of gluten, soy, corn or other allergens?
The product has no carbohydrates or macronutrients of any kind—and is 100% soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free.
Is it okay to take them daily?
It depends on your body. Some individuals choose to take 1-2 capsules daily for general maintenance, whereas others take more capsules during periods of cleansing, but not daily.
Detoxy is not habit-forming the way laxatives are, so you can incorporate them periodically or more regularly into your long-term health program.
Should I take the capsules with food?
To avoid indigestion, we recommending taking them at night, before bed and ideally a 2-3 hours away from food.
What if I have another brand, such as MagO7, that I purchased previously? What is the difference?
I know I’ve recommended Mag07 for years, it’s an excellent product and I still stand by that recommendation. DETOXY+ is a very similar product, so all my previous instructions from my books still apply, I just prefer the purity/quality of this source and the way it feels in my body. I also wanted to be sure we were using environmentally friendly packaging and the highest quality vegan caps, which we can do with this product, as we control the process. DETOXY+ is also 100% gluten-free and soy-free.
How does it work?
By releasing small amounts of oxygen into your colon, acidic waste is broken up and your stool is softened. This causes a cleansing action, helping the waste be eliminated more naturally, with pain, discomfort or struggle.
Can it help with Candida?
While we cannot make medical claims, given that oxygen helps kill anaerobic bacteria that includes yeasts and molds—it’s certainly possible that it may help. In general, balancing Candida requires a variety of lifestyle and dietary changes—there is no cure-all or quick fix.
Can it help my skin?
Because many skin issues are affected by colon health, it’s possible. Having old, waste stuck in your colon can lead to skin dryness for some, or for others, excess oil and acne. In general, anything you do to truly improve your digestion and elimination will create positive changes in the quality of your skin.
Also, an abundance of oxygen in your body can have a wide variety of anti-aging effects over time.
Will it make my urge to go to the bathroom uncontrollable? Will I need to be in the bathroom all day?
In general, no. For most people, the body reacts mildly and the urge to eliminate may be a little stronger and more regular—but certainly not extreme or uncontrollable. Of course, everyone is different and this is one reason why we recommend starting with just one capsule in the beginning—to see how your body reacts to it before increasing the amount. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to consult with a medical professional.
Will it give me diarrhea?
Diarrhea usually only occurs if you take too much at any given time. That’s again why it’s best to start with 1-2 capsules at most, if this is your first time. If you’ve been using another brand and are comfortable with a specific dosage, you should be fine using that same dosage of this product. If you’re really unsure about how much to take, or potential issues like diarrhea, it’s best to consult your doctor.
Is it okay to take with Probiotics+?
Yes, I highly recommend taking both for best results! Probiotics+ in the morning, and DETOXY+ in the evenings.
There are no issues in taking DETOXY+ along with Probiotics+, as the oxygen only works against unfriendly, anaerobic bacteria—not friendly flora or SBO’s. The one caveat is that both products are detoxifying, and you don’t want to overwhelm your system with too much detox unless you know it’s ready. So always error on the side of being gentle and conservative—take fewer DETOXY+ capsules to start, as there is no rush when it comes to cleansing. Simply love and support your body’s natural processes and you’ll get to destination soon enough.
Do I need to drink more water when taking it?
Yes, we recommend increasing water consumption by at least 1-2 glasses per day when using this product—more if you find yourself feeling dry or thirsty. The reason is that as the oxygen begins to break up the excess waste, the stool is softened and water is drawn to that area to help flush it out. Taking in more water supports this process and helps ensure you not only get results—but stay properly hydrated throughout the process.
Are there any side effects?
No “side effects” so to speak, however, there are some potential reactions to be aware of. First, the more you take, the more likely you are to experience loose stools or even diarrhea-like symptoms. However, this can be minimized by just taking less. In some cases, depending on the health of your colon, there be some initial discomfort or cramping due to gas build up before elimination. This is rare, especially if you start slowly, and typically passes in a day or so.
If you have more significant constipation or more severe Candida or digestive distress, there may be more initial discomfort until the waste is eliminated and your system is brought into balance. If you experience any cleansing reaction that makes you too uncomfortable, reduce the amount you take. Or if necessary, stop taking the product and consult a medical professional.
Is it okay to take while pregnant or nursing?
In general, it’s better to be extra safe when dealing with pregnancy, so please check with your doctor or qualified medical professional first. While DETOXY+ is very gentle (just magnesium and oxygen), everyone’s body is different and the body is more sensitive during and post-pregnancy. So it’s best to be on the safe side and check.
Can I give it to children?
Again, it’s best to consult with your doctor or medical professional when considering a supplement for children. Children may not only find it difficult to take the capsules, but also to control their bowels as the product begins working. Thus, we don’t recommend it for children.
Can it be taken while on prescription medications?
Though we know of no issues or contraindications for specific drugs, you should absolutely speak with your doctor to see if this product will affect or alter the results of your medication protocol. Safety first!
Does it ever become less effective or stop working for some people?
As your body gets healthier and cleaner, and this is usually the case when following a Beauty Detox regimen, you may require more of the product to experience faster elimination. That’s simply because there is less waste to break up.
Again, listen to your body and let it tell you what it needs. We’ve found the product to be non-addictive and, provided you’re living a healthy lifestyle, there is no risk for dependency or diminished effect over time. Less effect almost always means you simply have less waste to eliminate!
However, I have been taking it for years, and yes I have less toxicity in me from a few years ago…but there is always waste to detox! We are constantly eating, producing metabolic by-products and living in a polluted world.
How will I know that my digestive system is clean?
We live in a world where we’re exposed to smog, airborne pollutants, toxins in our water supply, EMF’s from phones and an endless list of other toxins. And because of that, cleansing is an ongoing processes that needs to be supported on a continual basis. That doesn’t mean you need to “cleanse” or take this product every single day, however we recommend having it on hand and making it a regular part of your wellness program—so that you keep toxic build up at bay, and maintain your best possible health.
Still Have Another Question? Ask Me Below!
This lengthy list should answer most questions, however, I know this is a new product and you may have a question or concern that’s unique to you, or hasn’t been covered. If that’s the case, or you want to express anything, feel free to post it in the comments section below. I will be reviewing this post often throughout the week and answering any/every question I see.
So that’s it for today — overall, we have a VERY exciting week on the blog:
Tomorrow, we have a really fun new assignment for those in our blogger program, plus picks from last week… Thursday we’ll have an in-depth informational post titled, “Gut Check: How Well Is Your ‘Second Brain’ Working?” — which I’m super eager to have you read, plus even more goodies through Friday/Saturday.
For those of you who have already placed your orders for DETOXY+ — thank you so much for your support — I really look forward to your shipment arriving soon and hearing your experience. If not, and you want to try it, simply go to this page, click the purple add to cart button, and follow the steps.
I feel so blessed to be sharing my passion with this vibrant, beautiful community and I want to personally thank you again for being with us. It means so much to me.
Talk to you tomorrow!
The bottle said take 3. Since I usually take less than a recommended dosage I took 2 the first night. Nothing much happened. The second night I took another 2. In the morning I could not even make it to the bathroom. I had severe liquid diarhea. I am not sure I want to take it again. Any recommendations?
Hi Helen, everyone is different so it’s hard for a one-size-fits-all recommendation. I’ll say that if you have any discomfort, then just try taking one and see how you feel. If even one is too much you are also welcome to send the product back for a refund, but hopefully that works for you.
I take my probiotics at night- seems to help with my reflux/heartburn…. does it matter if I can them both at the same time? Or should it be spread out?
Also, I have been trying different types of Magnesium at night to help with insomnia- it was recommended but not sure it does anything. Assume I would just take this one and skip the other?
Thank you 🙂
Kim, thank you so much for this product. I’ve been “beauty detoxing” for five months now, with, perhaps a bit more speed than I should have taken (nothing can stop me now! 🙂 but I still experience daily bloat. I follow all the principles you taught us in the books and keep improving as I learn more from your blog and your other sources. I’ve been taking magnesium oxide daily but maybe not enough for speedy waste elimination. I’m eagerly waiting for my two bottles of DETOXY+ and can’t wait to try it. I learned much more about magnesium oxide from the last week’s post and your answers to the comments. Will keep persevering and look forward to positive results and the end of bloat!
Along these lines (something I haven’t been able to find an answer to yet), as you strongly recommend colonics to help with waste elimination, how often do you recommend having them done? And how often is too often? (I’ve been getting it once a month and wondering if that’s not enough (because of daily bloat) but definitely don’t want to overdo!)
Thank you so much, I am so glad I discovered you!!!!
I have one more question!
Is there a wY to
Order both probiotics & detoxy? Because I am having a problem doing that. I figured would make a lot more sense for me to order both & save on shipping cost!’
Let me know thank you !!
Really looking forward to receiving this and probiotics + when it arrives in Australia! Thanks Kimberly xxx
Thanks so much Kimberly!
That answered a lot of my questions. I just ordered detoxy last week and have been taking it for several days. Already my tummy feels less bloated! I can’t wait to see the long term results!! I love your probiotics too! Thanks so much for developing quality products we can trust!
peace and love
~ Ashley Dumolt
ps: do you take probiotics once or twice a day when you are taking detoxy?
Thanks Ashley! Yes, I usually take probiotics in the morning and DETOXY at night before bed. That seems to work best for me.
Please ship to the UK soon! Thanks Kimberly x
Hi Kim! How many capsules are in the bottle? Is your new book about Beauty Detox Lifestyle? Just can’t wait to have it 😉
There are 90 capsules in a bottle; and yes, the new book is about Beauty Detox but goes deeper into the lifestyle, contains recipes and much more. That’s all I can say for now 😉
Kimberly, I have tried a probiotic product before: Pharmax HLC high potency powder…….it increased my discomfort with bloating, etc. I wonder how your product is different, as I would like to pursue a probiotic supplement. Thank you.
This is actually not a probiotic, it’s a magnesium-based internal cleanser. We do offer a probiotic, which is the richest formulation of soil-based micro-organisms, which many in our community love.
Magnesium, an abundant mineral in the body, is naturally present in many foods, added to other food products, available as a dietary supplement, and present in some medicines (such as antacids and laxatives). Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation [1-3]. Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm .
I’m from Germany and as I realized that I can’t get the Detoxy+ here, I was wondering if you could recommend a brand for Magnesium I can buy here until shipping is possible? that would be so wonderful! thanks a lot!!!
Can you please recommend a safe place for colonics in N YC.
Thanks for all you do .
Is there a recommendation for colonics in NY C.
Thank you for all you do
Who regulated the formulas in your supplements? How do I know I’m getting what, and in the amount, it says I’m getting on the label. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
Is it OK to take probiotics and Detoxy+ before bed at the same time. ?
Hello I just started taking detoxy Iam on my second night of taking 2 pills how long should I take 2 pills to see if it works before I up the dose idk if it has to get in my system first? Also how manu times should I be going to the bathroom to know if it’s working I only went once this morning so idk if I should be going more then that to detox? Thanks monica
Hi Kimberly is there a special diet during this cleanse that is different than basic beauty detox????
Hi Teresa and thanks for your great question. If you’ve already gone through all the stages in The Beauty Detox Solution book, and you don’t have candida issues, then it’s really just about eating your beauty foods per usual. Otherwise, start with the Blossoming Beauty stage and follow my guidance through each stage. The Detoxy will add to the cleansing process, regardless of which stage you are in, for continued gut health. Sending you lots of love and support! 😉
I started taking just one Detoxy+ pill and then after a few nights took two. The only results I have had are horrible stomach pain and cramping for almost four days. I wondered how long this will last. I was hoping to take them for a week, like you recommended, because I suffer from constipation and bloating quite often. However, I cannot keep taking them if I don’t start feeling better soon. Is it common to have a lot of pain until your system cleans itself out?
Hi Nicole McNeely and thanks for your great question. Listen to your body first and foremost. Detoxy is designed to increase elimination, but not in a uncomfortable way. Take less if you find the experience to be uncomfortable in any way. Start by taking 1 capsule daily and see how you feel after a couple of days, then increase to 2. Keep track in a journal so you know the next time you want to do a cleanse. And remember, it’s natural for our bodies to go through a rough period during cleansing because it is working extra hard to remove toxins. Give it time, be patient, and make any adjustments along the way. Sending lots of love and support! 😉
Question about your Beauty Detox. Do you have to do all three phases. Can you start the last one first if you are already eating clean and healthy. Also what if I just wanted to have the GGS and spinach salad for lunch and spinach salad for dinner with steamed veggies and quionoa. I have your book and I read it but I was wondering if I had to follow all the phases. I ask this because I already eat plant based and I would like to loose about 15lbs so I was wondering if I could try that without try the detox completely. I only ask because i travel so much but I can try and incorporate some of the detox?
Hi Gladis…thanks for your great questions. I know how hard it can be to stick to a healthy routine while traveling so I say, do the best you can with your circumstances. Progress not perfection! I encourage all three phrases when you have a lot of toxins built up or have candida issues, but if you’re pretty healthy to begin with, you can start in a phase that works for you. As for when you drink your GGS, I’m just happy you’re getting it into your system. Some people do intermittent fasting which means they eat later in the day, so if you start your day a bit later, that’s okay. Sounds like you have a great plan ahead of you. Please keep track in a journal and be sure to let us know how you’re doing. Keep up the great work! 😉
I have a couple different supplements I have to take right before bed. Can I take detoxy at the same time and it wont alter the effect of the other things? For instance I take Low-dose naltrexone for my hashimotos and I just wanted to make sure it wouldnt impact the effect of that at all. Thanks
Hi Jen and thanks for your question. When taking other products I always encourage my Beauties to consult with their health care practitioners to ensure you are receiving/taking your supplements when it is best for you. Keep up the great work in taking care of your health and lots of love to you! 😉
I saw the question/answer regarding Detoxy for kids but I’m wondering about my teenage daughter. She is 17. She is not pooping regularly and her tummy is uncomfortable and bloated. Her diet isn’t the best (sugar & carbs), but she does eat fruit and drink a lot of water. I was hoping Detoxy might be the answer to helping her. Thank you for your help.
PS. I love your products! I’ve been taking your Detoxy, Probiotics & Digestive Enzymes for quite some time now
Hi Shari and thanks for your great question. I would see if your daughter is willing to try the Beauty Detox Solution lifestyle, making a few small adjustments in her diet at a time. By eliminating sugar and unhealthy carbs, and drinking the GGS she will start to feel better. It will take her body time to adjust to the amount of fiber but this, and taking Detoxy would be most helpful. She can start by taking 1-2 a day and then slowly increase, listening to how her body feels. If you have any concerns, please consult your health care practitioner for further advice. Let us know how she does and sending so much love and continued support to you both! 😉
Thank you Kimberly for responding. You’ve been very helpful. I did give my daughter one Detoxy and it helped a little. I will try and again with two and see how she does. I am always trying to get her to eat healthier and she’s seeing me eat plant based & drink the GGS so hopefully my picky teenager will slowly come around. I have another question regarding the Detoxy for her. She can not swallow pills so I broke it open and put it in water but it doesn’t mix well. The good thing is that it didn’t have a taste but the consistency is very chalky. Would it work to put it in an organic apple juice? Hoping so. This would really help her drink it. Thank you!
Hi Shari – yes, definitely try the organic apple juice or even put it inside the GGS and she how she does. So happy to hear your efforts in assisting your daughter towards a more healthier lifestyle. Wishing the best for you two! xo
I loved the old Detoxy + and out of it : ( When is the new version coming out so I can stock up.
Hi Jennifer – so happy you loved Detoxy. My team will definitely keep all my Beauties updated when the new Detoxy is available for purchase. Thanks so much for your support and sending you lots of love! 😉
How do I order – I no longer see it available for order?????
Hi Sandi and thanks so much for your interest. The new formula will be available shortly. Stay tuned via social media and sending you lots of love and support! 😉
hello Ive been taking it for 5 days now and I am noticing I’m very fatigued, dizzy and nauseous off and on. I am constantly taking naps every day and going to bed early/ I don’t know if this is related to taking these capsules or not. Could be a separate issue but I just noticed these symptoms at the same time I started taking these. what do you think?
Hi Amanda…it’s hard to say because there are many variables – from, how you’re eating, exercising, how much toxins are being removed from your body, to your lifestyle, and your sleep pattern, to name just a few. Best to journal everything you’re doing and ask your health care practitioner to evaluate you. Be sure to let them know you’re taking Detoxy as well, and make adjustments as you go. This is why the journal is helpful in keeping up with the changes you’re making too. Let us know how you do and sending you lots of love! 😉
I’ve been taking detoxy and the trio daily- for about a month. Have had some irregularity/constipation since having surgery a couple months ago- so wanted to take it daily to keep regular.
Can taking the Detoxy every day for weeks cause any type of deficiency side effect (calcium, magnesium etc)??
Hi Mariel – Detoxy is not habit-forming the way laxatives are, so you can incorporate them periodically or more regularly into your long-term health program. Take them daily depends on your body. Some individuals choose to take 1-2 capsules daily for general maintenance, whereas others take more capsules during periods of cleansing, but not daily. Test out what works best for you and first and foremost, chat with your health care practitioner to ensure your body is getting what it needs. Lots of love to you and a speedy recovery! 😉
hi! I have been using your product since last spring. It worked so well for me. It was the first product that has worked and has not caused discomfort. Recently, however, it has taken the reverse effect. It is almost as though I am constipated. I have even increased the amount I am taking, and no such luck. What do you suggest? thanks so much!
Hi kz and thanks for your question. First, are you keeping track of your eating habits and writing them down? This will help in recognizing any changes in your diet and if the constipation is a result of something you may be eating or drinking that’s new to your daily diet. Also, your stress level and how your atmosphere is when eating – is it calm, is there anxiety or anxiousness? All of these areas have an impact on how we break down and digest our foods. If not already, start to keep track of your daily habits and the amount of water your taking in. Maybe take a couple of days off from the supplements to see how your body reacts and then start to incorporate them again. Let us know how you do. Sending you so much love and continued support! Xo
