So, I searched for the evidence?

Does detox work? Specifically, does the Nuubu reduce my:

  • Brain Fog
  • Irritability
  • Exhaustion
  • Stress Induced Muscle Aches
  • Inability to Concentrate
  • Tiredness
  • Restlessness
  • And Many More Problems

No matter how hard I searched, I did not find any evidence. Eventually, I had to conclude that the patch does not work.

Hold on!

The website might be correct with one claim: it helps you to strengthen your mind

… to such an extend that you will

never fall for the lies of detox entrepreneurs!

  • Thank you for one more entertaining present at the end of the year!

    I had problems concentrating on their ad. I got a touch of restlessness, irritabiity and many more problems, even a second of rage.

    Worry, too: I got concerned that I wouldn’t know which patch to put on the foot each day: they never verified that the patches come labeled “day 1”, “day 2”, “day 3”, not even in their video. If you don’t have the right patch, they won’t turn the right color!

    So I guess I just can’t consider buying them, since they have this effect of causing the problems they “fix”. Damned shame.

  • One extra note: these ‘detox’ patches turn dark after wearing them a while, which according to the SCAMmers shows that they’re working – all that black stuff is toxins drawn from your body, that is!

    In reality, this discolouring is caused by a deliberately added chemical compound that turns black in contact with water (or sweat) – something that is easily tested by holding a patch over some boiling water.
    The funny thing is that this chemical substance is most likely the only ingredient that actually does something, even if that ‘something’ is fooling gullible customers.

    • yes, thank for this important addition

    • The Detox Foot Pad Scam,
      Stephen Barrett, MD, (2010‑11‑12), Quackwatch

    • Exactly, like the “detox foot baths” that would turn black without a foot in the water. These pads were shown in the video to fade over time, “because the toxins are gone from your body!”. I was a bit tired when I watched their video, but it wasn’t clear which trick they used to do the fading color over time: did the substance stop being active over time, or did they have people using a new foot pad for each day (“Day 1”, Day 2″….”Day 8″…). each pad having progressively decreasing amounts of the substance causing the color change in the presense of moisture.

      • @Darcie D
        I’m not sure how this diminishing discolouration works – in fact, I suspect that it doesn’t even work at all, given that these Nuubu people are lying about most other aspects of their product too. Also, varying amounts of black reagent would make the product substantially more expensive to make.
        They just count on their customers fooling themselves: after spending several dozen bucks on these things, people will swear that the colour is getting less dark than in the beginning, even if it’s just as black after the fifth night. Or else they will believe that they just have a lot of toxins in their body that they need to get rid of.

        The only thing they will generally NOT think of is that they’ve been conned: people are generally very reluctant to admit having been tricked or fooled.

      • Ah yes, video evidence.

    • Their website actually admits this:
      “Nuubu patches are infused with beneficial vitamins and elements. When in reaction with sweat these elements cause the change of color of the patch, which should be visibly darker after use. This is how you know detox is working!”
      Perhaps they hope this is a CYA statement so they can’t be accused of conning people.

      • @zebra
        Ah, I hadn’t seen that yet … very informative … or rather: confusing:

        Nuubu patches are infused with beneficial vitamins and elements.

        Um, yes? And how are these beneficial vitamins and elements supposed to end up in the body? I mean, these things are only good for you if you actually get them inside. Just like even the best food is no good as long as you don’t eat it. And weren’t these patches supposed to draw Bad Stuff OUT of the body? Or do they also force Good Stuff the other way, all through the soles of our feet?
        Questions questions questions …

        BTW they are spot on about their products being based on ancient wisdom – more specifically this wisdom:
        Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur

  • Why is it always “ancient Asian” knowledge? Let’s hear more of our own noble traditional remedies – Yorkshire rhubarb dowsing for example. A time honoured way to pinpoint exactly that part of the body where the energy channels are blocked. Or Morris Dancing, thought by the ignorant to be merely a way for eccentrics to scrounge free drinks at the pub but in reality a powerful way to channel toxins from the body and flush them away through the jingling of bells.

    Perhaps these are only appreciated in China and India where they are rightly regarded as ancient western wisdom.
