I am one of those people who will openly admit that the word teatox sends shudders down my spine. I’ve heard such nightmare stories from people and even suffered some horrific stomach pains 2 days into a 14 day teatox myself last year. Needless to say, said teatox was binned and I will never touch that brand again.
I’ve been on a bit of a health kick of late and getting into shape with Results with Lucy, and as this finished, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to try out a teatox again but this time, only for 7 days.
I was offered a 7 day teatox to review from Nutriplan, which consisted of 7 morning tea bags and 4 evening tea bags to be used every other night.
The SlimKitten 7 day teatox contains lots of natural ingredients and has a fruity taste and smell when you open the bag and is even stronger when you add hot water.
I followed the instructions as stated and brewed a teabag every morning before breakfast and then every other evening, I did the same with the bedtime brew. I was pleasantly surprised by the taste every day and having previously had a bad experience with a similar teatox, couldn’t believe that I was managing to drink it down without a problem.
On the 3rd day, I did notice a few more visits to the toilet but I had no stomach pains or issues which was a major plus. The first teatox I did last year made me feel horrendous and left me in a lot of pain which was the reason I swore to never try one again. I’m glad I changed my mind and decided to take a leap of faith with this.
The purpose of a teatox for those of you asking is to detox the body and aid in weight loss and cleanse the body. I definitely noticed my stomach was less bloated throughout the week and I felt energised. I did notice my skin was suffering a little but with any cleanse, the body rejects the impurities and this was probably the case for my skin as well.
Here’s the sketch:
Yes this teatox did have some benefits and certainly for £8.99, it’s fab for a detox a week before an event/holiday.
I don’t think it’s a sustainable plan on its own and certainly wouldn’t give you weight loss without changing your diet and exercise as well, so please do not think it’s a quick fix.
The tea itself is pleasant to drink with a fruity taste and has a red colour when brewed for 5-10mins. It reminded me of berry tea which is one of my favourites.
Would I buy it again?
In short, yes! It’s a bargain and would be fab before a holiday or even my wedding next year.
I hope this honest review has helped you decide whether to try a teatox for yourself, do feel free to leave me any comments or questions below.
