UltraLife Detox Review

6 January 2011


I'm a habitual detoxer. I don't remember quite when it started, but every January, I do a detox to rid myself of the excesses of December. It's not a resolution, as such, but rather, a habit.

For a few years now, I've been using UltraLife Detox juice to help me, and this year will be the same. You drink one sachet in a glass of water an hour before breakfast, and a glass of water during that hour, before going on to have your regular food for the rest of the day.

By eating normal, but healthy food, laying off the alcohol and chocolates for the month and drinking the Ultralife Detox juice, I normally lose around 3kg during the two week program, and reach the end of January feeling fit and full of energy again.

UltraLife Detox is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers – I've used it in both circumstances. It helps relieve constipation, and maintain regularity, promotes healthy intestinal function and works without the need for starving.

It contains no artificial colourings, flavourings, preservatives or aspartame or saccharin. It is also sucrose, dairy, lactose, egg, wheat and gluten free, and suitable for vegetarians, diabetics and children.

I've only ever used the Tropical flavour, which is great, but it's available in Orange too, and two weeks supply will cost you £9.45.

    Wow, by drinking fluid and eating healthily for a month you can lose weight after a period of excess eating! It's a miracle. Wonder what part this snake oil played in the process? There's nothing of any proven use in here apart from fibre which will do the same good job as any dietary fibre in your diet. So, stick to a health, balanced diet including fibre and put about 18 pounds back in your pocket at the end of the month.

    Lol. I do love the cynics who've never tried what they're criticising. The reason I love this product is that I can eat regularly - which includes the odd desert, my soft drink habit and so on. Yes, a balanced diet will definitely get rid of the Christmas excess, but even when there hasn't been Christmas excess - say June- it works, and it's great.

    Sorry for being a biochemist and actually taking the time to read the ingredients on this product. No I haven't tried it, but I don't need to try a product containing arsenic to know it will poison me. Nor do I need to try a product containing "natural clay which adsorbs and binds toxins" to know that it's nonsense. Find me the clinical evidence that any of this stuff works and I'll gladly retract my comments here. In the meantime, stop perverting a blog that is meant to be about money saving tips for parents into a pathetic sales pitch for a worthless product that will cost people over £20 a month. The only demonstrable dietary or medical benefit you are getting from this is increased hydration mixed with soluble fibre which will swell up due to the water and make you feel more full, reducing your appetite. You could achieve almost exactly the same effect by drinking a glass of water then eating a bowl of All Bran, then drinking another glass of water in the hour afterwards, followed by a healthy, balanced diet.

    I have to say I'm with Theo on this one Luschka. I'm guessing that at about a fiver a week it is a good deal for a detox programme. And it is great to hear about your personal experience - always good for anyone trying to decide if something is really good value for money or not. But really there's so much pseudo-science in the marketing guff for these things, it is totally off putting for me.

    I have used this product for over 6 years a couple of.times a year and it does work, I was sceptical at first as being in the health and fitness industry I come across a lot of fad diets and detox plans but this does really work

What do you think?
