WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO: The materials claim that this is a “revolutionary formula” that gets rid of toxins from the body and promotes healthy weight loss. The principal ingredients responsible for this action are chlorella, which energizes the body; and juniper berry, uva ursi, cascara, and psyllium, which help with internal cleansing through urination and stool elimination.

This formula was designed by Lindsey Duncan, N,D., C.N., who chose specific “harmonizing” herbs and botanicals, The literature notes that many of the herbs in this formula have been used for centuries by cultures around the world and can not be found in other formulas.

COMMENTS: Dr. Duncan’s Diet & Cleansing Plan’ contains the very potent laxative cascara sagrada, which should not be taken along with other laxatives. Yet the plan also contains several other laxatives in the form of oat fiber and several vegetable and fruit fibers, which may increase the possibility for serious side effects. Do not take this product if you have diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain; or if you are pregnant, breast-feeding, taking medication, or have a medical condition.
