The 30 Days™ Experiment

I was fortunate to be invited to a launch of a new natural supplement for waist reduction. I was given the opportunity to interview Dr. Paul Clayton, an Immunologist and expert on Beta-glucans, a key ingredient in this product. The idea of 30 Days™ is that it targets fat around the middle by using a combination of Beta 1,3-16 glucan, polysaccharides derived from the cell walls of bakers yeast that have been proven to modulate the immune system. In combination with a blend of herbs, 30 Days™ assists the body’s ability to excrete waste.

30 Days™ promote the use of a colon cleanser alongside containing a combination of magnesium hydroxide, vitamin C and bioflavonoids. I just want to make it clear that I am by no means endorsing any product. I was given a sample of 30Days™ Waistline and 30Days™ Colon Cleanser and asked if I would blog about it. I decided that I couldn’t write about a product that I hadn’t had experience with so decided to experiment with a friend.


Meet Donna. Donna is a 42  year old from South London and works as a Project Administrator for a drug and alcohol service. I gave Donna the product on 21st February and she began taking it the day after.

Her measurements were as follows: Waist: 35.5 inch, Hip: 42.5 inch, Bust: 39.25 inch.

Donna took the sample as directed and we took measurements and photos again on 27th March, when she ran out of the product.

New measurements: Waist: 33 inch, Hip: 42.5 inch, Bust: 38 inch

As a scientist, I am intuitively sceptical of uncontrolled experiments. It is possible that it could have been a placebo effect. I am also not one to advocate the use of diet pills or quick fixes but this product seems to have some effect at losing inches as It is quite clear here that Donna has lost inches around her bust and waist.

I spoke with Donna after and she said that she felt great. When asked about the taking the supplements and her diet, Donna said that the regime was easy to follow and she felt a bit more like she wanted to eat better in the last two weeks of taking the supplement. Whether this has had an effect on influencing the results, who knows!

This is NOT recommended for a replacement of a healthy lifestyle. My firm belief that a positive change in body composition and health is only associated with a following a healthy lifestyle, choosing nutritious food, including exercise and balancing the mind. Together the body is brought into sync.
