Your Top Oxy Powder Frequently Asked Questions Answered
What instructions do I follow?
Oxy-Powder™ 7 Day Colon Cleanse can be used as part of a detox or to relieve the symptoms of acute constipation.
Take four capsules with a full glass of purified water before bed. If you do not have three to five bowel movements the following day, increase the serving by two capsules every night until you have three to five bowel movements the following day. Take this serving size for five more days.
Maintenance: Take your effective serving size two to three times weekly as needed to encourage normal bowel movements.
TIP: Use the number of capsules it takes for you to move once a day. As a rule of thumb you could start with half the dose you used for the 7 Day Cleanse. This is very much an individual amount and can be taken indefinitely without becoming habit forming or harmful to the body.

What about an Overnight Cleanse?
Add 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and the juice of half a lemon into 16 ounces of purified or distilled water. Take with six to eight capsules of Oxy-Powder before bed. Oxy-Powder will cleanse your intestinal tract while you sleep, allowing you to relieve yourself of toxins the following morning.
TIP This is useful if you don’t have time for the 7 Day Cleanse but need a cleanse. Or if you have done the 7 day cleanse but would like to top up on the work you have already done.
Is Oxy-Powder safe for daily use?
Yes Oxy-Powder is safe for daily use when taken as directed.
What should I expect when I take Oxy-Powder?
Oxy-Powder can help you experience more frequent, softer, and smoother bowel movements. As your intestinal tract cleanses itself, your bowel movement will be lighter and the frequency of your bowel movements will usually begin to diminish.
Will Oxy-Powder cause a dependency?
Although the use of some stimulant laxatives can cause dependency, Oxy-Powder is a gentle alternative that will not cause dependency.
How long will I have to take Oxy-Powder to address my occasional constipation?
Use Oxy-Powder as directed, and take four capsules with a full glass of purified water on an empty stomach before bed with a full 8 oz. glass of water. If you do not achieve three to five bowel movements the next day, increase serving size by two capsules each night until you achieve three to five movements. Continue this amount for five more days. After this period, take the maintenance serving as needed.
TIP: I would suggest you buy just one pot of Oxy-Powder capsules at first to see how you get on with the 7 Day Cleanse and the maintenance afterwards. By the time you have used one full pot of Oxy-Powder you will know if you want to make it part of your routine. That is when it makes sense to purchase multiple pots together to get better value.
Why am I not having bowel movements after using Oxy-Powder?
Everyone’s experience is different. Depending on your health status, you may not experience a bowel movement until the second or third day. Give Oxy-Powder a minimum of five days to work. If your digestive system is particularly backed up, it may take longer to clear.
Will Oxy-Powder dehydrate me? Why do I need to drink so much water?

Most people have an accumulation of toxins in their body. When they begin a cleanse, those toxins are stirred up as they exit the body. For most people, this doesn’t produce any issues. However, depending on your beginning health status, you may experience a “healing crisis.” A healing crisis may include temporary effects such as mild headaches or joint discomfort, cramping, runny sinuses, fatigue, skin eruptions, or trouble sleeping. These effects subside as toxins are expelled from your body.
Why are my bowel movements inconsistent when I use Oxy-Powder? Some days I have three bowel movements, other days I have none.

This fluid displacement can cause dehydration or electrolyte imbalance
