Hi Ali

Thanks for your question! 

The answer will vary from person person. Some people love them for weight loss and "cleaning" out the system which is true - a cleanse will do both. 

For those with poor diets and who eat a lot of processed foods and have a large back up of fecal matter, a cleanse will rid them of this. 

But others believe that a healthy diet and exercise should suffice. 

There are also some risk factors to these cleanses including possibly injuring the colon or even puncturing it.  Buyer beware!
