BooTea Summary

BooTea Daytime Teatox tea is a less harsh version of their Bedtime Teatox tea which contains senna (a strong laxative ingredient). In contrast, the daytime tea provides some beneficial herbs and ingredients, as well as a slight laxative (dandelion) which may help you lose weight.

Though this tea is easy to use, a lot of reviewers expressed not liking the taste. Let’s read on to find out all about this tea for weight loss…

When to take this tea:

This tea is meant to be taken during the daytime. As mentioned above, BooTea also has a bedtime cleanse tea (but this product contains senna which is a potentially dangerous laxative with unpleasant side effects).

Taste:

It has an “herbal” taste that reviewers described as pretty bland and resembling unsweetened green tea.

Easy to Use?

Yes, it comes in teabag form.

Side Effects?

Reviewers noted needing to use the bathroom a lot and being slightly lethargic.

Warnings (Outlined in the Disclaimer Below):

  • You are not to use this product for longer than 28 days without medical advice and if you experience adverse reactions you should discontinue use and see a physician. Following the 28 days of use, a break of at least 14 days is needed before resuming use of the product.
  • If you are on medication or suffer from or have a history of intestinal obstruction, inflammatory intestinal diseases, appendicitis, diarrhea, constipation or abdominal discomfort do not use this product.
  • Do you use if you consume licorice or laxatives, if you are under the age of 18, are pregnant or lactating.

Ingredients and Full Disclaimer

The above disclaimer clearly shows that this product contains some ingredients that should be used with care. Let’s take a look at how these ingredients may help you (or not)…

Metabolism-Boosting Herbs: Some Better Than Others

BooTea includes herbs that help to boost your body’s metabolism so that it burns more fat, including oolong tea, ginger, fennel seeds, Siberian ginseng and nettle leaf.

Let’s discuss why some of these are great options and others could be better.

Oolong tea is a great option for metabolism-boosting as it contains powerful antioxidants that burn fat quickly and effectively. In this way, it helps to prevent obesity and reduces abdominal fat (our #1 rated weight loss tea on this site also includes oolong tea).2

Ginger is also a great herb to be used in this formula, as it’s considered one of the best herbs for weight loss. And fennel works as a fat buster by boosting the metabolism and breaking down fats.3

Although ginseng is well-known for helping to boost energy and metabolism as well as help with weight loss, Siberian ginseng (the form used in BooTea) is not a true ginseng as it does not belong to genus ‘Panax’ (there are 11 varieties of ginseng that belong to the genus ‘Panax’). In weight loss trials, Korean red ginseng was a type that showed favorable weight loss results in human trials.4

Next is nettle leaf…although some people claim that nettle tea can boost metabolism and help with weight loss, other sources say that there aren’t enough studies done on this ingredient to prove that it would help you drop pounds.5

Ingredients That Make You Feel Full or Suppress Appetite – How Well Do They Work?

Yerba mate (also called mate) in BooTea is a great tea to help slow down the rate of gastric emptying – causing you to feel full from drinking it and be less likely to overeat.6

Fennel seed – which has many uses to help reduce weight – is also a good option as it suppresses the appetite and also helps you feel full.

On the other hand, some say that lemongrass, another ingredient in BooTea, can help to keep you full, but other sources say that it does not contain enough effective properties to have a direct effect on weight loss.7

Diuretic Ingredients and Bloat Reducers

BooTea also contains natural diuretics and ingredients that help with bloating.

First, the weed dandelion helps to cleanse your body by stimulating more urine production, causing excess fluid to leave the body tissues. A diuretic such as dandelion is beneficial because it helps you lose water weight.8

Ingredients that help with bloating are also important in a weight loss tea.

Ginger, which is included in this tea, helps to alleviate gas, bloating and cramps, as well as improve circulation, relieving bloating.9

Price and Money Back Guarantee

Price: $14.99 for 14 servings ($1.07 per serving)

Money Back Guarantee: No

The price of BooTea is competitive in the industry, so it is a good price, however the company does not offer a money back guarantee, which is disappointing. You can return the product within 30 days if you have not opened it, however, if you open it and don’t like it or it doesn’t work, you cannot return it.

BooTea Conclusion

All in all, this product contains some promising ingredients that may help with weight loss, but it also contains some ingredients that don’t have enough evidence that they will actually help you lose weight.

On a whole, reviewers felt slightly lethargic and were not energetic after consuming the tea (even though it is a daytime tea). The slight laxative property is also inconvenient since it causes users to have to use the bathroom fairly often. Finally, many reviewers did not like the taste.

Despite some negatives, this product is a good price, and user reviews did show that some people lost a small amount of weight when using this product. Since it is not as harsh as some other detox teas in the market, it may be a good option for you. If you still want to look around, you can compare it to some other brands on this review site.
