London: Gwyneth Paltrow has been criticised for selling a 21-day ‘detox’ kit worth 275 pounds on her website.

The actress’ website ‘Goop’ has been promoting the ‘Cleanse’ kit saying that it ‘simply supports the body’s natural detoxification process’.

However, health and nutrition professionals question Paltrow’s decision to sell a product like that.

“She is not a nutritional expert. I would not recommend it,” the Daily Mail quoted Catherine Collins, chief dietician at St George’s Hospital in London, as saying.

The ‘Cleanse’ involves eating one low-calorie meal a day, two protein shakes and vitamins.
