Slam Dump is a relative newcomer to the US market, but it's definitely one of the better ones. They've stuck to a straight forward formula with 5 highly dosed ingredients that are ultimately the most well backed when it comes constipation relief and regularity.
Slam Dump socre high in all the fields you'd want from a supplement like this. Occasional constipation relief, gut inflammation and bloating, detox, and promoting regularity.
We particularly liked the addition of cape aloe and cascara sagrada, two natural laxatives that will loosen your stools and help cleanse your colon. For mild constipation and promoting regularity, one capsule might be enough; but you can take 2 to get 100mg of cascara sagrada and 500mg of cape aloe in which they will be the most effective.
Perhaps, it would have been interesting to see Slam Dump adding some fibers as probiotics, but ultimately it would mean that they would need 5-6 capsules instead of one. This way, you can easily cleanse your colon with one single capsule, and avoid competitors that are just underdosed fiber capsules.
Additionally, this supplement seems ideally dosed for daily use and reducing the need for any strong colon cleanser. But it can also be of great aid for people that get constipated on specific occasions like holidays or stressful periods. Because it won't make you shit your pants instantly, it enables a more natural bowel movement.
All in all, compared to the rest of the market, which tipically underdose most ingredients or contain fillers, Slam Dump is a solid choice. Plus it's priced pretty reasonably too.
Unfortunately, there are not many user reviews
around, as this is a fairly new supplement. We did manage to find some social
media and reddit Slam Dump reviews saying that it worked for them, we did also find a few reviews on a 3rd party review site in the UK trustpilot, but whilst the reviews were positive, many were comically so, as such we can't quite be sure if they were people just having a bit of fun because of the name or if they were real. But, we can say there were no negative ones and the legitimate few we found were positive.
Looking at other industry experts, it seems that Slam Dump has taken them by surprise as well, as it scores highly as a colon cleanser in most. It has even made to best colon cleanser lists in a few health magazines.
We will be looking out for more customer reviews, as colon cleansing supplements can be highly subjective and we'll update accordingly, we may even highlight a few of the more amusing ones.
No, we were able to buy and test Slam Dump without any issues. We even contacted their customer support from various accounts and they were extremely helpful in all our queries.
Cape Aloe 250mg - Cape Aloe contains compounds called anthraquinones, such as aloin, which have been shown to have laxative properties (1). These anthraquinones stimulate the contraction of the colon muscles, promoting bowel movements and relieving constipation. Studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Cape Aloe in improving stool consistency and frequency in individuals with constipation.
A study in 2022 investigated the laxative effects of Cape Aloe in mice (2). The results showed that Cape Aloe extract significantly increased the frequency and weight of fecal output, indicating its potential as a natural laxative. Furthermore, Cape Aloe has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which can help support gut health. In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Plants Research, Cape Aloe extract exhibited significant antimicrobial activity against various bacteria, including Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. A 2021 study found that it aloe suplementation also improves health markers in obese people (cholesterol, blood pressure and glycemic control), mostly due to the laxative and detoxifying effects (3).
Senna Leaves 50mg - Clinical trials with 80 patients showed constipation relief when taking senna leaves vs placebo (4). On top of that senna leaves have antioxidants that remove radicals from your gut, reducing oxidative stress (5). Combined with the antifungal and antibacterial properties, it can help detox your gut, and improve your digestive well-being (6). Senna is FDA-approved for treating constipation and clearing the bowel before procedures like colonoscopy.
Cascara Sagrada 50mg - Cascara Sagrada also contains anthraquinones, which stimulate the muscles in the colon and promote bowel movements (7).
In combination with senna leaves, the anthraquinones are converted into aglycones which have a dual effect to relief your constipation. In one hand, they promote colon movement, and on the other, they also help accumulate fluid in the lumen which leads to a laxative effect (8).
Fennel Seeds 50mg - Compounds found in fennel seed have been shown to have relaxant effects on the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, which can promote healthy digestion and alleviate bloating.
A study showed that the extract was able to downregulate the activation of STAT1, a protein involved in inflammatory responses, and improve the integrity of the gastrointestinal barrier protecting your body from pathogens (9).
Another study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that fennel seed extract exhibited significant anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial activity, which could potentially contribute to its digestive benefits (10). Antioxidants like quercertin, rosmarinic acid, apigenin are found in fennel seeds that help fight free radicals and gut inflammation.
Some studies suggest that fennel seeds might have appetite suppresant effects, but for that there are better plants and fibers like glucommanan.
Cayenne (40,000HU/G) - Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin which has been found to stimulate digestion by increasing the production of digestive enzymes and enhancing gastric motility (11). It can also promote bowel regularity by increasing the contraction of the smooth muscles in the intestines, aiding in the movement of waste through the digestive tract.
Additionally, capsaicin may alleviate occasional constipation by promoting the secretion of fluids in the intestines, softening the stool and making it easier to pass. Capsaicin is also often found in weight loss supplements due to its thermogenic properties, which increase calorie expenditure.
All in all, Slam Dump contains active ingredients that work in conjunction to help relieve occasional constipation, and promote regular bowel movement. We like the synergistic effects of these ingredients that work together to cleanse your colon, loosen your stools, fight inflammation, reduce bloating, and improve overall gut health.
Arguably, we would've liked to have seen a little bit more of senna leaves, but it could cause some side effects in people, so we understand why Slam Dump hasn't added more. If you feel like you need more, you could double your dose.
Slam Dump takes a unique approach as a colon
cleanser and it pays off big. It includes natural herbs that work
synergistically and will hellp lighten your gut. Slam Dump is our new favorite
colon cleanser, and a great supplement to use as a gut detox or as a tool to
promote regular bowel movements. And more importantly it's one of the first colon supplements we've come across that isn't just psyllium husk.
Is it perfect? No. It could have had some probiotics that promote your gut bacteria, or some fiber to add round up the formula. That said, we cannot doubt it's effectiveness. But, if you're looking for a straight forward colon cleanse then Slam Dump is the best option.
