We’ve all seen these detoxifying foot pads in stores. You put them on your feet at night, and they’re supposed to remove the toxins and impurities from your body. The goal is to relieve pain and give you more energy. I decided to pick up a couple of packs of the detox foot pads at Marshall’s for $5.99. (Sorry, I didn’t shoot the brand names on the packages.)
Each package had a week’s supply. So I put a pad on each foot and snuggled in my bed for a good night’s sleep.
The next morning, I pulled off the pads and found this. Yuck!
What’s in the foot pads?
There are natural ingredients in the foot pads such as bamboo vinegar extract, tourmaline, powdered loquat leaves, chitosan, dokudami, and Vitamin C.
Do they work?
I think they’re working for me. The pads relax my muscles and ease my pain from my ankle fusion surgery. In the morning, my feet feel rejuvenated. Per the directions, I wear the pads for five nights straight and then go without them for two nights.
When I went to get more foot pads at Marshall’s, I couldn’t find them. I was forced to look in other stores until I found the Total Vision foot pads at Ollie’s. This brand gives you an extra ten pads for seven bucks, but I didn’t like these as much as my first couple of packs. However, they still work.
I have a couple of brands of detox foot pads on Groupon that I’m going to try as well. Let me know if you try the foot pads and if they work for you.
