The 12-hour window is creating time from your last meal of the day to your first meal of the next day. So for example, if you have your dinner soup at 6:00 pm, ending by 6:30 pm, then you’ll have your morning smoothie at 6:30 am or later. This allows the body to do its deep cleaning. Six to eight hours after your last meal, the body starts to detox heavily. The body needs an additional four hours to do a deep clean. This allows the liver to restore and rejuvenate a lot of the body’s processes.
Should I stop taking my current supplements?
During the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse, discontinue your current supplements until after you finish our Supplement Bundle. We cover your supplement needs during the program and for some, a little beyond. We also have a maintenance bundle of supplements available for purchase.
How much of the Multi + Detox powder should I use?
Start slowly - 1 teaspoon per smoothie or soup per day until you work up to 4 teaspoons per day, ideally over the course of the Preparation Phase week (first week).
Are snacks allowed?
Yes. Snacks are allowed during the cleanse. You may find yourself getting hungrier sooner with liquid meals. Having some cleanse-friendly snacks on hand can keep you feeling satisfied and prevent drops in your blood sugar. You can find a list of snacks in the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Manual.
Can I exercise during the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse?
You can exercise during the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse! However, we encourage you to listen to your body. The cleanse may be a good time to do gentle movement (walking, yoga, and body weight exercises ) or allow your body to rest and recover.
I'm feeling fatigued. Is that normal?
Yes. Early in the active elimination phase, some participants experience an increase in fatigue. This may be your body adjusting to changes to your diet or liquid meals. It may also be related to sugar and caffeine withdrawals. It can also be a mild response from the detox process. This is normal and usually resolves in a couple of days to a week.
Do I have to eat only Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse recipes during the program?
Nope! We provide you with recipes for convenience and inspiration, but you do not have to follow them throughout the program. Feel free to find cleanse-friendly recipes yourself or adjust your favorite family recipes to fit the program.
Why is my urine bright yellow?
No need to fret! This is natural, and it does not mean you are peeing out your supplements. The metabolites (waste products) of the nutrients you are consuming turn your urine bright yellow.
What if I have a social engagement and cannot eat a liquid meal?
We understand that life happens. We do not expect you to put your life on hold for the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse! We want you to continue to engage in your daily life while also trying to ensure that you are getting the most out of your cleanse experience. Do your best. If you need to have a solid meal at dinnertime once in a while, that is okay.
If I have questions for the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse experts, how can I chat with them?
The Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse experts have weekly office hours. You can post your questions in our Community portal and an expert will get back to you.
If you have personal health-related questions, you can also schedule a 1:1 with one of the experts by contacting Starkel Nutrition. The experts cannot answer personal health-related questions through the portal without having more information. This would be a disservice to you!
When should I complete the Data Geek add-on tests?
The first Data Geek test should be collected during Week 1 before starting the Active Phase in Week 2. The second Data Geek test should be taken before starting the Reintroduction Phase, so that is at the very end of Week 4/beginning of Week 5.
I bought the Data Geek Add-On. What do I need to? When will I get my results?
You may have heard of collagen and collagen peptides. Included in our Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Supplement Bundle are collagen peptides. We use this to meet protein goals in smoothies and soups. It is also great for your gut lining, joints, ligaments, hair, skin, and nails. What is the difference between plain ol’ collagen and collagen peptides? Collagen peptides are the broken-down form of collagen. The peptide form is more bioavailable meaning it makes it easier for the body to absorb and use!
Where are the collagen peptides sourced from?
The collagen in our Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse supplement bundle is sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised cattle with no additional hormones or antibiotics. The collagen is non-GMO tested, certified Paleo friendly, and NSF gluten-free certified. It is unflavored and mixes easily, hot or cold. It can be used in shakes, smoothies, soups, & in baking.
How long do I have access to the content?
You have lifelong access to all of the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse content. Many of our participants revisit the program a few times per year. You will have your Manual and Recipe Book (although we update these frequently), and access to your program. You just have to purchase the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse REPEATERS Supplement Bundle.
Can I keep taking my Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Supplement Bundle after I complete the cleanse?
Finish all your supplements from the cleanse, even though you may have finished the program. Our customers often ask us how to maintain their healthful glow after completing the cleanse. Although we recommend repeating the cleanse 1-3 times per year, it is not necessary to continue with the liver detoxing portion of the supplements when you are in maintenance mode, between detox cleanses.
Therefore we put together a great, basic supplement package to maintain the results you have worked so hard to achieve. Each package is a 30-day supply.
Our proprietary formula provides you with foundational, daily supplemental support beyond your detox cleanse, the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse FOUNDATIONS Supplement. This includes a high-quality omega-3 to support lowering inflammation and cardio-protective properties, a broad-spectrum probiotic with well-researched strains to promote a diverse and robust microbiome, a comprehensive multivitamin/mineral to help you cover your vitamin and mineral bases, and vitamin D3 + vitamin K2.

*We highly recommend getting your vitamin D levels checked periodically and consulting with one of our nutritionists, our naturopath, or your doctor to test your levels to determine what dose of vitamin D is best for you. Vitamin D needs can vary depending on where you live, your personal absorption ability, and how much sunlight you are exposed to.
Can I use the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Multi + Detox for my everyday multivitamin after the program?
Our Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Multi + Detox is a powerful detox supplement. We recommend using this only supplement during the program. Use our Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Foundations Supplement between programs, or your own protocol. If you would like personalized supplement recommendations, please schedule a 1:1 appointment with one of our expert-level providers at Starkel Nutrition.
Can I reorder the Starkel Nutrition Detox Cleanse Supplement Bundle if I want to cleanse again?
