On Monday night’s Late Show With David Letterman, actress Demi Moore revealed one of her beauty secrets: detoxifying leeches. The 45-year-old recently traveled to Australia for a full-body cleanse — which included the aide of “highly trained medical leeches” being placed in her bellybutton.

“You feel [them] bite down on you, and you want to go, ‘You bastard!’ and then you relax and watch it swell up,” she said. “They have a little enzyme that when they are biting down in you, it gets released in your blood and generally you bleed for quite a bit – and your health is optimized,” she added. “It detoxifies your blood – I’m feeling very detoxified right now.”

While you might be grimacing a bit, it should be noted that leeches have commonly been used throughout history for a variety of medical conditions. We’re not necessarily buying the whole “detox” claims, but according to Wikipedia, there are some great uses for the little critters — including helping those in the aftermath of plastic surgery.

“Leeches reduce blood coagulation, relieve venous pressure from pooling blood, especially after plastic surgery, and stimulate circulation in reattachment operations for organs with critical blood flow, such as eye lids, fingers, and ears.”

So there ya have it. Leeches. Tell all your friends what you learned today — but if you’re interested in detoxifying, we’d recommend something else.
