Rocket Clenz Review
Are you looking for a “revolutionary new approach” to colon cleansing and weight loss? The official Rocket Clenz website claims that’s exactly what you’ll get with their “space age formula,” which they say was developed by NASA.
These extravagant claims instantly caught my attention. Yet I can’t help but be skeptical. So I did a little research and contacted the company hoping my questions would be answered.
What Results Can You Expect?
Before I get into the details, let me explain what Rocket Clenz is supposed to do.
First and foremost, Rocket Clenz is marketed as a colon cleanser. Using oxygen boost technology, it’s supposed to eliminate excess waste and harmful toxins.
But it’s also advertised to help you lose weight fast. A box on the official website says research proves Rocket Clenz assists with weight loss. However, when I clicked on the box, I was not shown the research. Rather, I was directed to testimonials—and not one testimonial mentioned weight loss.
Many dieters like to use a colon cleanser when starting a new diet since it can jump start results. Excess waste and water weight contribute to a higher-than-desired body weight. A cleanse can quickly help you drop pounds.
While I can understand how Rocket Clenz might contribute to weight loss, I’m a little disappointed the promised research isn’t available.
How Does Rocket Clenz Work?
Usually I rely on the ingredient profile to help me determine a product’s effectiveness. I look for clinically proven ingredients used in adequate dosages.
With Rocket Clenz, I have been unable to find even one ingredient. Rather, the official website explains how “oxygen-based chemicals” are used to “cause oxygen to be released and transported throughout the body.”
As far as I’m aware, my lungs and blood are doing a fine job transporting oxygen through my body. So how does this additional transported oxygen cleanse the colon?
Apparently, when Rocket Clenz is ingested and the oxygen is distributed, trapped feces and toxins are excreted. While eliminating the bad stuff, Rocket Clenz allows healthy bacteria to grow, which naturally aids digestion.
Hidden Formula Revealed
After looking everywhere I could possibly think to look online, I came up empty handed. There isn’t a published ingredient list anywhere.
So I called the customer service hotline to ask what ingredients are used. But the representative I spoke with said, “I am not a scientist so I don’t know how it works.” He was very elusive and refused to name even one ingredient, which immediately made me worried about the ingredient profile.
Luckily, Sarah Connelly from the Longinexx customer service department (we’ll get to that in a minute) was able to answer my question. Although it took nearly a week, I was pleased with her answer:
“Rocket Clenz is made of Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflanvoids[sic] and Potassium.”
While I can’t be 100% positive this is the actual formula, let’s take a look at what these ingredients do.
Magnesium. This element is highly reactive. It is often coated in oxide (a chemical compound that contains an oxygen atom and another element). If the magnesium in Rocket Clenz is coated in oxide it may contribute to the oxygen cleansing power. However, I have no way of knowing if magnesium oxide is used or plain magnesium.
Magnesium ions are crucial for more than 300 biochemical reactions to occur in the body. They help to produce ATP (the body’s energy source) and may offer some laxative effects. It’s in these two functions that magnesium may be beneficial in Rocket Clenz.
Zinc. Another element, zinc is similar to magnesium. It does not contain oxygen in its natural state and thus may not contribute to the oxygen cleansing power advertised.
Vitamin C. Vitamin C contains antioxidants. These are useful in a cleanse since they eliminate free radicals and other toxins. Vitamin C contains several oxygen molecules. So it could contribute to oxygen cleansing, but it would require several chemical reactions to occur in the body. Since the body uses vitamin C for other purposes, I’m doubtful it would be used for much more than its antioxidant properties.
Citrus Bioflavonoids. The bioflavonoid chemical structure contains 15 oxygen molecules (if I counted correctly). Assuming the body knows to use these for cleansing, bioflavonoids could be useful. If not, citrus bioflavonoids are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties so they’re beneficial anyways.
Potassium. Potassium is essential for all living cells. This chemical element assists in nerve transmission and ensures proper cardiac function. However, it does not have oxygen in its rawest form and thus may not contribute to Rocket Clenz’s advertised cleansing power.
These nutrients and antioxidants are beneficial for improved health. But I’m not convinced they will find their way to your colon and remove excess waste when ingested. Magnesium’s laxative effects may produce the bulk of the results.
That being said, I have no way of knowing how much magnesium (or any other ingredient) is included in the formula. Without knowing this crucial information, I have to question whether any results are possible.
How to Use Rocket Clenz
Sarah Connelly, with the Rocket Clenz customer service department, provided these instructions for use:
“You mix 1 teaspoon with 4-8 ounces of cold water 1 to 2 times per day. Follow with a glass of pure water.”
Rocket Clenz Safety
Any cleanse that works is likely to cause excessive urination, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal problems. I couldn’t find reports of additional Rocket Clenz side effects or safety concerns.
The ingredients are safe for most users. However, I would want to know the exact ingredients amounts before using it.
Rocket Clenz is supposedly manufactured by Dartford Kent, LLC. The address listed on Rocket Clenz’s website shows Dartford Kent is located in England.
A little research turned up another product manufactured by Dartford Kent, Longinexx. After learning of this connection, I was no longer surprised the Longinexx customer service team responded to my email.
It’s not unusual for a supplement company to manufacture more than one product. However, what is unusual is to have one product manufactured by another company as well. Longinexx is supposedly also manufactured and sold by Superbalife, LLC. This company is located in California and, according to Rocket Clenz users, sometimes processes orders and billing for Dartford Kent products.
This connection to two companies is a little concerning. I have to wonder what’s really going on, especially since there are so many unanswered questions about the product.
The NASA Connection
The official website makes several claims that Rocket Clenz uses “rocket technology” and a “space age formula by NASA.” Although this sounds impressive, it may not be.
When I contacted Rocket Clenz customer service, no one could tell me which scientists helped to develop the formula. So I called NASA headquarters hoping someone there would be able to answer my questions.
The woman I spoke with wasn’t aware of a connection between NASA and Rocket Clenz. And since I didn’t know the scientists who helped develop the formula, she was unable to connect me to someone who might know more.
This call further confirmed my suspicions of Rocket Clenz.
How Much Is Rocket Clenz?
Rocket Clenz is only available for purchase on the official website. It is $39.95 for a one-month supply.
Discounts are available for bulk purchases. You can save up to $15 per bottle if you choose this option.
If you are unsatisfied with your results, Rocket Clenz is backed by a guarantee. You can read more and buy it for $39.95 on the official site here.
I have to admit that I am impressed with the customer service team. They answered the questions I had to the best of their ability in a timely manner. Hopefully that level of service is exhibited should you need to return your purchase.
Despite the helpful customer service representatives, at this time I don’t feel comfortable recommending Rocket Clenz. Supplement companies should be forthright about their product. After all, you’re putting a foreign substance in your body and you don’t want to do any damage. When you don’t know what’s in a product you could risk your health.
Furthermore, the only consumer reviews are posted on the official website. Typically reviews on the official website are biased or untruthful. I would like to see positive consumer reviews on third party websites to get a better understanding of how Rocket Clenz works and what real users think.
Assuming the ingredients are correct, Rocket Clenz is likely safe to use. But it may not be the most effective option if you’re looking for a cleanse. And it certainly isn’t ideal for weight loss even though the official website advertises Rocket Clenz is “research proven” to assist in weight loss.
