Boo Tea is a weight loss tea that works by giving you a 14 day detox or teated. It is claimed to be made from natural ingredients but does it do what it claims to do?
In this review we are going to look at how Boo Tea works and whether we believe it will aid your own weight loss efforts.
How does Boo Tea work?
Boot Tea offer 2 different teas, a day time one and another to be taken nightly.
The daily tea is supposed to help boost your metabolic rate, which will help burn calories and stored fat, while also helping to suppress your appetite.
The night time tea on the other hand works differently as this is not going to boost your metabolic rate, instead it is supposed to help cleanse your digestive system that will ensure excess calories are not absorbed and stored as fat on your body.
Ingredients found in Boo Tea
The ingredients of Boo Tea are as follows:
Daytime tea: Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves, Nettle leaves and Caffeine.
Nighttime tea: Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian root and Psyllium seeds.
Unfortunately there is no mention of dosages on the website, although these ingredients should work in the way that Boo Tea claim.
Is Boo Tea safe?
While the daytime Boo Tea contains Caffeine it is in small doses (less than a standard cup of tea). However this is not to say that there is no risk of side effects.
The nighttime detox tea as it causes a laxative effect you may find that you will be visiting the toilet a little more often.
If you are currently on the pill then Boo Tea can also affect it. It is recommended that you use other forms of protection while using Boo Tea.
How much does Boo Tea cost?
Boo Tea comes in a variety of packages, with 14 day amounts of both daytime and nighttime teas costing £10.99 each.
There is a 14 day teatox available too for £19.99, which contains 14 days of the daytime tea with 7 nights worth of the nighttime tea.
Louis Tomlinson One Direction controversy
Back in November 2013 Louis Tomlinson from boy band One Direction tweeted about using Boo Tea, however his tweet was quickly removed after failing to realise that this product is used to promote weight loss.
Unfortunately during the 3 hours that the tweet was live it had been retweeted 10,000 times with 14,000 favourites.
In the short time that the tweet was live Louis Tomlinson was inundated with complaints from users who were disgusted that he had been endorsing a weight loss product to impressionable young fans.
Following his tweet the Advertising Standards Authority looked into the claims made by Boo Tea (that it could help burn fat, suppress the appetite, improve skin and sleep quality and “cleanse and detoxify”), with the company behind the product unwilling to provide proof of its claims.
Is Boo Tea recommended?
While Boo Tea should help with your own weight loss efforts you need to be careful not to fall back into your old habits once you have taken part in the detox, otherwise any weight you lose will return.
This is why you should always eat healthily and get regular exercise when taking any supplement. To train yourself to start living healthier, this is the only way to keep the weight off long-term.
Alternative to Boo Tea
A proven alternative to Boo Tea is Tava Tea, which is made using 3 powerful Chinese teas; Sencha, Oolong and Puerh. With no caffeine or laxatives present.
This weight loss tea will cost £23 for a bag of 30 teabags, which is good value for money with 50% extra free.
