Just drink water: What ever you do do not buy a detox product. Your liver and kidneys do an excellent job of clearing most toxins . U just need to be well hydrated (drink water) there are some toxins like heavy metals (lead) etc which may not come out and you should see your md if those are an issue. Those detox products just make you poor-er. ...Read more
None: There no such agents, nor is there a need for one! your body cleanses itself, and any substance advertised to do that is potentially dangerous. I had a healthy patient nearly die after a "colon cleansing". See your doctor for any healthcare concerns, and don't take any supplements unless directed by a physician. ...Read more

NO, don't do it!: This has been addressed many times on healthtap, and the repeated answer is: don't cleanse! it doen't matter whether the snake oil (sorry "detox cleanse") you choose is "organic" or not--there is no enduring value to cleansing.

Don't: At least be careful. This is a mix of cilantro, pumpkin seeds, dandelions etc -- obviously a scam. Your body and your internal organs clean themselves naturally.
