Detox foot pads are sold at many retailers, including Amazon.com, BodyPure and Global Healing Center. The price may vary based on quantity and brand. Detox foot pad companies claim their products draw toxins, such as metals and chemicals, out of the body.
Some companies maintain that their products can treat diabetes, depression, cellulite and headaches. However, as of 2015, there is no scientific support that detox foot pads are safe to use or that the claims are true. Detox foot pads have an adhesive on one side for easy application to the foot, and most companies direct users to leave the pads on overnight.
