Julia Bradbury has received a heap of messages from fans telling her not to use a particular brand of Body Detox foot patches. Supposedly, the patches help fight off toxins in the body.

I tried out these Body Detox foot patches to ‘remove toxins from the body’

But when the TV presenter took to her Instagram on Wednesday to show the poor results after having applied the patch on her foot, she was left with disappointing results.

“How much fun did you have in bed last night?” the 51-year-old wrote.

“I tried out these Body Detox foot patches to ‘remove toxins from the body’.

“How disgusting does this look?”

She continued to explain to her 201,000 followers the purpose of using the foot patches.

But by the look of things, the body detox didn’t work as well as she had hoped.

In her video, Julia can be seen removing the patch from her foot.

As she slowly removed the product, a vast dark stain was on full display, which is believed to be the “toxins” from her body.

In her caption, the mother-of-three continued: “They apparently have a cleansing function, drawing out toxins overnight.

“They promise an array of benefits including: improvements to your metabolism, immune system, insomnia, fatigue, migraines, back pains, swellings etc etc etc. Whadya think? (sic)

“Any reflexologists/traditional medicine experts out there with an opinion?

“SEE COMMENTS BELOW there are no scientific studies to back up these claims so we all have to rely on anecdotal evidence. As an aside i always consider who has paid for scientific trials/data.”

Julia concluded: “Obviously a big pharma corp has a vested interest in their medication ‘trialling well’.

“I am not endorsing or critiquing these patches… just gave them a go. [feet emoji] #health #feet #patches #toxins #beauty (Thanks Kelly for the gift [feet emoji]).”

As Julia mentioned, there’s no evidence proving that the body detox patches placed under the feet actually work.

And it wasn’t long before fans reacted to the post by sharing their concerned thoughts in the comment section.

“Detoxification is done by the liver, not the soles of the feet,” @michaelwatterson wrote, before going on to insist that products as such are nothing more than a scam to profit from gullible costumers.

“All of these foot pas are a scam. (sic) 

“Companies love preying on our fears and insecurities. Save your money.”

@lucyswhitehall continued with similar words, saying that it was “impossible” to detox the body by simply placing a patch underneath the foot.

@whyayemrs added: “Interesting…. although I think our bodies are already well equipped to manage and expel toxins.

“So I’m not convinced of their value or evidence base.”
