About Total Cleanse Plus

Total Cleanse Plus is a nutritional supplement that claims to combine the highest quality all-natural ingredients to naturally increase energy, boost your metabolism, and enhance your weight management by detoxifying your body and flushing away the pounds. And by facilitating healthy digestion during the process, Total Cleanse Plus is claimed to provide powerful yet gentle results.

How Does Total Cleanse Plus Claim to Work?

If you struggle with high cholesterol, poor metabolism, a weak immune system, or many other symptoms, according to Total Cleanse Plus, it may need detoxification. In fact, the colon cleanse’s website claims that some people may hold up to 30 pounds of toxic waste in their colon, and when the body is unable to effectively remove this waste, serious side effects can occur.

To help address these issues, Total Cleanse Plus claims to contain indigestible soluble dietary fiber and Aloe Vera, both of which can help relieve constipation, improve digestion, and cleanse and detoxify your body. And because your digestion is improved and you’ll have less toxins in your body, Total Cleanse Plus is also claimed to promote weight loss and to boost energy levels.

As such, Total Cleanse Plus is claimed to include the following all-natural ingredients:

  • Calcium: 215mg
  • Proprietary Blend 500mg: Oat, Alfalfa, Psyllium Husk, Lactobacillus Acidolphilus, Rhubarb Root, Gentian, Aloe Vera, Cascara Sagrada, Goldenseal, Buckthorn, and Bentonite.

Unlike some other cleanses, Total Cleanse Plus is claimed to stimulate your digestive system without inducing cramping or “harsh activity,” and to be manufactured without preservatives, fillers, or synthetic ingredients.

In order to begin using Total Cleanse Plus, the manufacturer recommends taking one capsule before your first meal and a second after dinner.

Total Cleanse Plus Pricing & Refund Policy

Total Cleanse Plus is only available via a 14-day trial, just pay $4.94 S&H, for which you’ll receive a 30-day supply (60 capsules) of the supplement.

The 14-day trial begins on the date your order is placed, and the manufacturer’s Terms & Conditions claims it will take 1-4 business days to ship (when attempting to check out, we were advised it would take 5 days to arrive). After your trial has expired, you’ll be charged $88.92 for the existing bottle, and will be enrolled in the company’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of Total Cleanse Plus every 30 days, and your credit card will be billed $88.92 until you call to cancel.

Important note: The T&C also goes on to say that in order to cancel your 14-day trial, you’ll need to contact the company at least one day prior to the expiration date. In other words, you actually only have a 13-day trial when it comes down to it. Also, you’ll be required to ship the remaining bottle of Total Cleanse Plus back to the manufacturer, or you can opt out of this requirement by paying a fee of $38.71.

For full details, we would strongly recommend reading through Total Cleanse Plus’s Terms & Conditions prior to placing your order.

Outside of the 14-day trial, there are no refunds available. However, in order to cancel your trial, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-409-4137.

Can Total Cleanse Plus Detoxify Your Body & Help You Lose Weight?

If Total Cleanse Plus works as well as it claims, it might be worth its weight in gold. After all, if you can detoxify your body and shed pounds at the same time, who wouldn’t want to purchase it? But when it comes down to it, is this really the case? Consider the following:

Does Your Body Even Need a Colon Cleanse?

Basically, despite all the scientific-sounding jargon they use to sell their supplements, the reality is that natural colon cleanses like Total Cleanse Plus just increase the number of bowel movements you take on a daily basis. That’s it.

But is there anything to the theory that increasing the number of bowel movements can decrease the number of toxins in your body? According to WebMD, “Mucus membranes in the colon can keep unwanted substances from reentering the blood and tissues, [and] the colon sheds old cells about every 3 days, preventing a buildup of harmful material.” In other words, your gut naturally rids itself of waste on a regular basis, without the help of cleanses.

In addition, the article goes on to say, “Increasing the number of bowel movements doesn't improve weight loss. That's because the body absorbs most calories before they reach the large intestine.” So not only will more bowel movements not mean less toxins in your body, it likely won’t help you lose weight either.

To drive the point home even further, Science-Based Medicine states, is there anything to all this? Does decaying, nasty feces stuck to the insides of your colon poison you with toxins and lead to disease? Not really, except under very uncommon circumstances.” However, “One thing’s for sure. Colon cleansing is a dubious and almost always useless procedure that shows no signs of going away.”

Ingredients Breakdown

The necessity of a colon cleanse notwithstanding, are there any ingredients contained in Total Cleanse Plus that can help you detoxify your body or help you lose weight?

According to WebMD, psyllium husk, aloe vera, and bentonite are used (in this instance) to relieve constipation and promote regularity, while Lactobacillus is a beneficial bacteria contained in probiotics that can help improve digestion. However, there is insufficient evidence showing that Rhubard root, Gentian, Goldenseal, or Cascara sagrada have any detoxification or digestion benefits. In fact, Cascara Sagrada (and its other name Buckthorn) is actually deemed to be unsafe for use longer than 2 weeks at a time. Also, because nearly of Total Cleanse Plus’s ingredients are contained in a proprietary blend, there’s no way to know how much of each it contains.

This means that there are only three ingredients contained in Total Cleanse Plus that will likely provide you with any results, all of which promote regularity. However, as we mentioned in the previous section, this doesn’t necessarily translate into detoxification or weight loss.

Social Proof as a Selling Tool

Next, as we discussed in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article, supplements websites are often constructed to cause you to react in a very specific way; e.g. to get you to purchase the product. This includes featuring images of attractive models to tug at your emotions, branding images to make the product’s name stick in your mind, in addition to sign up forms, all of which are placed in just the right order.

Another psychological trick is by using social proof to convince you to buy, which involves getting you to think that “everyone else is doing it,” so that you’ll want to try it too. In the instance of Total Cleanse Plus, this involves an image at the top that reads “Limit 1 Trial Bottle Per Customer – Only 250 Trials Given Per Day.” As a result, you’ll think that a ton of consumers are interested in this product, and that the company had to limit the number of trials given per day. As such, you’ll think “What am I missing?” and will want to hop on the bandwagon. However, the likelihood that this is acutally this case is slim to none.

The Company & Customer Reviews

Total Cleanse Plus is a fairly new product (URL registered August 2014), so there were no legitimate (e.g. non-affiliate) online customer reviews available at the time of our research.

However, we did notice that the Total Cleanse Plus website is essentially identical in layout to Garcinia Cambogia Sensation, which was registered three days before the latter. In addition, both supplements have the same phone number and the same address in Lutz, FL. As such, for all intensive purposes, these supplements appear to be manufactured by the same company.

With this said, products similar to Total Cleanse Plus, such as Ultimate Flush Colon Cleanse, Pro Power Cleanse, and Advanced Cleanse Plus Aloe, appear to have a low reputation among HighYa readers, with nearly all complaints referencing difficulty with the “free” trials and/or poor customer service.

Information Sharing

Finally, keep in mind that according to the Total Cleanse Plus Privacy Policy, “we may also use such personal identification information for internal or external marketing and promotional purposes.” In other words, you may received unwanted emails/sales calls soon after placing your order.

Bottom Line

Considering everything noted above, we would strongly recommend avoiding Total Cleanse Plus and speaking with your doctor if you’re concerned about detoxifying your body and/or losing weight.

    Total Rip off

    • Green Bay, WI,
    • Aug 16, 2016

    You don't actually get 14 days to try it. They will charge you $88.92 13 days after you order it, not after you received it. Then if you opened it to try it, you can't send it back for a refund. Total Scam!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Total money making scam

    Don't do it. It's a money making scam. Pills don't work. They will charge you $90 on the 13th day of your order. You still will be billed.

    Very expensive and doesn't work as well as it claims

    • Minnesota,
    • Jun 19, 2015

    As many other people I saw the advertisement online and I decided to give it a go because they claim to only charge you for shipping, that and apparently the results for this thing were impressing. I checked the website several times to make sure that I was only going to get charged for the shipping. There was nothing about any subscriptions mentioned, or $88.9 after the 14 day free trial. It was foolish of my part to assume that in a free trial I was going to get the product for the $4.95 that I initially paid. It was very foolish but also the website was set up to make you think like that. Claiming that it is a free trial and a once in a lifetime opportunity, etc. I just thought "Wow, this may work and it is not crazily expensive".

    I bought my two bottles, one of Total Cleanse Plus and the other of Garcinia and I got a confirmation email telling me that my bottles were going to arrive soon along with my tracking number. I didn't get any emails after that and I got the bottles right away. Now, the bottles. I only took the pills for a month so perhaps that's why I did not see any changes in my body. If something, the pills prevented me from getting any fatter. My body pretty much stayed the same and I did not feel energetic; my appetite was the same too. Maybe in order to see some drastic results it is necessary to take the pills for months.

    I am mad and not because the pills did not work but because I was charged $88.9 for each bottle. No one informed me that after 14 days I was going to get charged such a huge amount of money. The website did not say anything about that and I did not get any emails saying that either. Nothing, I feel utterly deceived and must I say, stupid. It is not necessary to say that I am very upset and that I want my money back. I called the company (after reading this post) and I got my subscription canceled. The company that handles these products is legit and the customer service was very effective. After the way I was tricked I thought that the customer service was going to be shady but my subscription got canceled in about two minutes.

    Overall, don't buy Total Cleanse or the Gracinia pills unless you are willing to spend hundreds of dollars on pills that may or may not work.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Does Not Work

    • Palm Beach Gardens, FL,

    Does not work. I want to cancel this, but can't find a phone # to call. Please let me hear from you before I call the Better Business Bureau! The website does not even have the address on it.

    Total Cleanse plus

    • Alexandria, VA,
    • Dec 26, 2014

    I signed up for the free trial and next thing I knew, they were charging my account $95.00 for a subscription that I never ordered. I called the number that they had attached to the charge but of course it is a non working number. So try to cancel your order when you can't get in touch with them. The web page doesn't have a number either.

    I do not want this subscription and would appreciate my money back before I contact the Better Business Bureau.

  • Horrible Experience

    • Dec 23, 2014

    I got the trial for $4. It kept charging my card by itself and I received no product. I am still trying to resolve this with my bank. So far they have charged me close to $300.00.
