For the thousands of people who have tried a Chef V 21 DAY DETOX, the proof is in the pudding. Or more accurately, the proof is in the Organic Green Drinks, Vegan Protein Shakes, Detox Soups, recipes, and healthy-meal-creation resources.
Weight loss, more energy, better sleep, more balanced mood, clearer skin …
…These are just some of the anecdotal/social proof benefits of the cleanse and detox programs created by Veronica “V” Wheat, founder of ChefV.com.
If you’ve never tried a detox before and you’re skeptical, well, you should be…
That’s because the global detox drink market size was valued at nearly $5 billion in 2021. And the vast majority of detox drinks have three major problems:
- They’re either ineffective or:
- The results don’t last long (Temporary water weight loss; no lifelong healthy eating habits developed). And:
- There’s hardly any research that supports nutrition-based detox plans.
So rather than just relying on social media testimonials and hype, Veronica and ChefV.com CEO Brandon (V’s husband) decided to boldly go where few natural food companies have gone: get the (very expensive) backing of an independent clinical trial.
Chef V’s 21 DAY DETOX Put To The Test
All the benefits of a CHEFV.com detox listed here wouldn’t hold much water (no pun intended) if a clinical trial did not find the results “statistically significant.”
Statistical significance in research studies refers to the likelihood that the observed results are not due to coincidence or chance but occurred directly because of the intervention.
And in this case, the intervention was following Chef V’s 21 DAY DETOX (details), followed by a 7-day period during which the 38 participants of the study consumed one 16-ounce serving of Organic Green Drink and consumed a healthy lunch and dinner with ingredients, recipes and resources suggested and created by Veronica Wheat. (These suggestions and resources are provided to all ChefV.com customers who purchase a CLEANSE or 21 DAY DETOX.)
The 38 subjects (male and female) were between the ages of 31-65 and in relatively good health with no chronic health problems. This fact is important because if someone was recruited in the study who had, say, obesity, it might be easier for them to lose more weight than somebody who has a smaller Body Mass Index (BMI), thereby skewing the average weight loss results.
However, this isn’t to say that the participants were pictures of perfect health. They had to self-report that they were tired several times a week, experienced brain fog, sleep issues, trouble with focus, or experienced a busy and stressful life. Participants were also recruited if they experienced consistent gastrointestinal issues such as bloating. With these common health concerns, it would be easy to study whether the participants experienced improvements in these areas after finishing the 28 day trial.
The clinical trial was conducted by Santa Monica, CA-based Citrus Labs in February 2023.
The 38 participants completed baseline surveys and had blood samples collected by a third-party lab. The participants also completed surveys and had a blood sample taken after 28 days of using ChefV.com products.
Chef V Blood Test Results On Day 28
The clinical trial tested the participants' blood levels for:
- Total cholesterol
- LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol)
- Cholesterol/LDL ratio (high levels are associated with a higher risk of heart disease)
- Triglycerides (fat in the bloodstream)
- C-Reactive Protein (a marker of inflammation)
- HbA1C (“A1C” measures blood sugar levels over a 3-month period)
The results of the clinical trial, according to Citrus Labs:
- Total cholesterol: 9.2% reduction
- LDL cholesterol: 10.7% reduction
- Triglycerides: 23.3% reduction
- Cholesterol/LDL ratio: 7.7% reduction
- C-Reactive Protein: 34.1% reduction
- A1C: 1.7% reduction
“Overall, participants saw a statistically significant improvement in total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, cholesterol/LDL cholesterol ratio, and HbA1C. These findings suggest that the Chef V protocol, as used in this trial, is effective at bringing about positive changes in each of these biomarkers in just a 28-day test period…
“The Chef V program led to many statistically significant improvements in biomarkers critical for overall health and well-being,” Citrus Labs researchers concluded.
How Well Did Participants Feel Better Overall?
What about the wellness markers that can’t be measured by a blood test, such as?
- Weight Loss
- Energy Level
- Sleep Quality
- Concentration and Focus
- Skin Complexion
- Hair fallout
- Muscle/Body/Joint problems (aches, stiffness, pain)
- Compulsive Eating
How effective was following a Chef V Starter Detox plan for 21 days followed by a 7-day Green Drink plan?
At the end of the 28 days, Citrus Labs researchers reported that participants saw a significant improvement in dark circles under their eyes, congestion issues, excessive mucus production, acne, dry skin, hair loss, constipation, excessive belching and flatulence, and bloating.
“These positive improvements were quite large and represented significant symptom relief during the trial. Overall, Chef V products positively influence skin, hair, and GI health when used over 28 days,” the researchers concluded.
But that’s not all…
The participants experienced significant improvements in muscle fatigue, body aches, joint aches, back pain, and neck pain as well as mental clarity and brain fog. There was also a significant improvement in sleep quality with less daytime fatigue.
Other key findings reported after day 28 day of the study:
- On average, participants lost nearly 8 pounds (Study participants were considered healthy with no significant overweight issues; many people lose far more than 8 pounds after a 21 DAY DETOX.)
- 39.8% improvement in hair loss
- 46.2% improvement in bloating
- 49.6% improvement in muscle fatigue
- 48.6% improvement in back pain
- 43.8% improvement with sleep issues
- 43.7% improvement in energy levels.
- 32.3% improvement in the ability to focus
- 78.8% of participants said they felt in a better mood.
- 72.7% felt they had more energy.
- 87.9% of participants felt better overall.
- 84.8% of participants would recommend Chef V products to family and friends.
Be A Chef V Detox Participant & Experience The Results For Yourself
The clinical trial data speaks for itself. Following a Chef V 21 DAY DETOX and continuing with healthy habits such as continuing with an Organic Green Drink subscription isn’t a quick weight loss fix. It’s a lifelong health transformation.
And the best part is that after the 21 DAY DETOX, you can indulge in some of your favorite not-so-healthy treats from time to time.
It’s all about balance. If you stick to Chef V’s healthy eating routine (resources provided) at least 80% of the time, you may experience the same results as the study participants.
As Citrus Labs explains, the reason why Chef V’s cleanse and detox program works is because:
“It’s not a diet that encourages people to skip meals but to use green juices and other products alongside foods that can supply the nutrition needed for optimal health outcomes. The detox program provides the three primary macronutrients alongside antioxidants to promote detoxification.”
