Xxtra Clean Review
You may not have considered it, but the reason behind your low energy levels could be the toxins and free radicals in your body. These toxins compromise not only your immune system but general body function, slowing you down and making you susceptible to colds and other infections.
Xxtra Clean proposes to change all that. An herbal cleanse drink, Xxtra Clean says it cleans out your system and gets you back on your feet before you start your weight loss program. It’s also advertised to lower the toxin level in your body.
I wanted to see if Xxtra Clean was actually this powerful, or just another product that leaves you hanging out near the bathroom all day. In this review, I’ll cover the Xxtra Clean manufacturers, the product formula, what past customers think, and how much Xxtra Clean costs.
Who Makes Xxtra Clean?
Before looking at the Xxtra Clean formula, I wanted to investigate the manufacturers. Often, a manufacturer can tell you all you need to know about a product. If the manufacturer is knee-deep in customer complaints and failed products, you can be sure their latest product won’t be any different. If the manufacturer is reliable, however, there’s a good chance your perspective product is solid.
Xxtra Clean is manufactured and sold by Detoxify LLC, a company based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Detoxify was founded in 2007 by CEO Byron Samaras. This is a pretty long time for a supplement company to have been operating; most go under in the first year or two.
However, Detoxify hasn’t come out unscathed. In fact, it currently holds an F rating with the Better Business Bureau. Detoxify has had 3 complaints filed against them in the past 3 years, some unsettled.
These complaints cite both advertising issues and problems with the product.
However, there are only 3 complaints for a fairly large business and no other reasons cited for the BBB’s low rating. Consequently, I’m willing to give Detoxify the benefit of the doubt for now.
What’s Makes Xxtra Clean Tick?
Whether or not Xxtra Clean works will be determined by its ingredient profile.
The formula in this product contains nearly 20 ingredients. I’ll go over those included in the highest amounts so you know how Xxtra Clean works.
Fruit Pectin (3.74 g)
Pectin is important in plant cell walls, and fruit contains more pectin than any other plant. An insoluble fiber, fruit pectin is used to bulk up the stool and carry out more toxins and bacteria. Fruit pectin also extends the life of “good” bacteria to keep your gut healthy.
Proprietary Herb Blend (2.2 g)
The real diuretic and laxative properties in Xxtra Cleanse are found in this proprietary herb blend. Containing burdock root, milk thistle, nettle, and uva ursi, this blend prepares the bowels to excrete more waste. This flushes more toxins and free radicals from the body.
Creatine Monohydrate (625 mg)
Creatine is a well-liked supplement among bodybuilders since it draws water into muscle cells and creates volume. It also stimulates the growth of lean muscle mass. However, since bloating and water retention are common side effects with creatine, I can’t understand its purpose in a body detox. It seems creatine would actually be more harm than help.
Calcium (125 mg)
Excess toxins throughout your body—and especially in the liver—decrease calcium absorption. By adding calcium to Xxtra Clean, Detoxify restores a mineral you may be low on. However, calcium itself doesn’t do anything to clean out the body.
Magnesium is an effective colon and bowel cleanser. In fact, it’s so effective that many doctors recommend magnesium citrate for patients about to undergo a CTC scan. Magnesium works by eliminating toxins and bacteria along the digestive track, including excess oxygen. It’s also free from cramping side effects caused by other laxatives.
Xxtra Clean also contains vitamins A and D, thiamin, biotin, and zinc.
Other than creatine, this appears to be a balanced formula with attention paid not just to eliminating waste, but to replacing it with essential vitamins and minerals. However, since creatine is such a large part of the Xxtra Clean formula, it makes me wonder if the formula is really as effective as it seems.
Do Customers Like Xxtra Clean?
To see if creatine throws off the balance in Xxtra Clean, let’s check out some customer reviews.
Judging from reviews left on Amazon.com, Xxtra Clean is effective for most people. It currently holds a 3.5/5-star rating on Amazon, with 7 out of 11 reviewers giving it a 5-star rating. However, 3 reviewers gave it a 1-star review.
Those who liked it say Xxtra Cleanse “worked like a charm:”
“Great product – Drink entire bottle and however much water it takes you to urinate 3 times in 90 minutes. After the third urination, you are good to go for 5-6 hours. Do not drink insane amounts of water as it will stop the product from working correctly. DO drink a bottle of 12oz of water every 60-90 minutes after the 3rd urination and urinate as needed, don’t hold it in. As long as you can avoid toxins for 48hrs before you use this, its a sure thing.” –CallMeDup
“This is the best product on the market for rapid cleansing. If you need to cleanse your body very fast, then you should definitely get this product as opposed to some of the others on the market.” –Aboriginal American
Those who didn’t like it say all Xxtra Cleanse did was increase their time in the bathroom.
“This product makes a lot of claims that for me turned out not to be true. If I were you I would not depend on this product for any type of cleaning of your system. It simply did not work and I would not recommend this product. Will help you pee, but that is it.” –The Gadfly
It looks like at the very least, the diuretic properties in Xxtra Cleanse work. It probably isn’t going to keep you toxin-free over a long time period, but it can give you a quick cleanse if you need it.
Is Xxtra Clean Worth a Shot?
If you’re in need of a quick cleanse, Xxtra Clean probably isn’t a bad choice. Priced at around $16.00, it’s expensive for a one-time cleanse but if you’re in a pinch it could be worth it.
