Dual Action Cleanse is one of many colon cleansing products taking the growing health and supplement market by storm. It has received a lot of attention, due in part to the formulator's aggressive TV and internet marketing campaigns. There is a tremendous amount of controversy surrounding Dual Action Cleanse, which we think is largely unwarranted. We find that the Dual Action Cleanse is one of the better colon cleansing products available today.
Dual Action Cleanse is a two-part cleansing system:
Part I is the Colon Clear Formula, designed to support the liver and kidney's which are the organs responsible for filtering waste and toxins from the body. The primary function of the Dual Action Cleanse Colon Clear Formula is to stimulate peristaltic action in the colon, producing 2-3 bowel movements a day for maximum colon cleansing benefits.
Part I is the Total Body Purifier, a blend of 33 cleansing herbs that promote cleansing and detoxification throughout the body (15 specific body parts, to be exact).

Dual Action Cleanse Product Review
Dual Action Cleanse is an excellent product made with a well-crafted blend of ingredients that are natural and effective. The Colon Clear Formula contains the herb cascara sagrada, which can produce cramping and discomfort and which has been shown to scar the lining of the colon walls if used frequently over long periods of time. The recommended dosage of the Colon Clear Formula is reasonable, and when used periodically (and if you don't have a prior history of a lot of cascara sagrada use), the use of Dual Action Cleanse should produce no unwanted harm to your colon or other body systems.
It is of vital importance that you use this product, or any other colon cleansing product, according to the instructions provided. Also, drink copious amounts of filtered water. Aim for one gallon of water or unsweetened herbal tea a day while using this product.
Having said that, we do caution against its price and method of purchase. Dual Action Cleanse has received numerous complaints regarding its business practice, especially pertaining to their auto-ship program, difficulties with refunds and questionable customer service practices.
The cost of the Dual Action Cleanse program is $79.90. The company highly encourages the purchase of a second product, the Maximizer Kit, for an additional $119.90. The two products are promoted for a combined special price of $129.80.
None of these 3 prices are a good deal, and the Maximizer Kit is not necessary, and in fact, may just overload your body with excessive herbal actions.
We highly recommend that if you buy this product, you only purchase the Dual Action Cleanse program for $79.90. Use it once, do not sign up for the auto-ship, and see how it works for you.
Keep in mind that there are other excellent colon cleansing kits on the market. We do stand by the excellence of the quality of the ingredients and blends of the Dual Action Cleanse product, and if you can afford $80 for a one month colon cleansing program, we encourage you to try it.
