Fit Tea 28 Day Detox Summary

Fit Tea is a detox tea with some proven ingredients for weight loss (although the amounts of each ingredient are not included on the label).

The tea includes green tea and oolong tea, which are backed by numerous studies, and garcinia cambogia, which may or may not be beneficial for weight loss.

Read on to learn more…

When to take this tea:

Drink this tea every morning with or without breakfast.

Taste:

According to reviews, this tea tastes like lemon and users gave it positive feedback. The company website says you can add honey or lemon to help make the tea taste better (but with honey you will be adding sugar which in large quantities can lead to weight gain).

Easy to Use?

Yes – Fit Tea comes in individual portioned teabags instead of being a loose tea so it is easy to use.

Side Effects?

This tea does not contain senna, a harsh laxative or dandelion root, a light laxative, so you will not be running to the bathroom with this tea.

Users expressed that they did not have any negative side effects but they made sure to drink a lot of water so they didn’t get dehydrated. Some people reported feeling energetic after drinking this tea.

Ingredients

Green Tea and Oolong Tea – But How Much?

Fit Tea contains both green tea and oolong tea in their formula (although oolong tea is listed as the fourth ingredient on the label). These two ingredients are proven to be among the best teas for weight loss, as shown by many studies.

Green tea contains caffeine and powerful antioxidants called catechins (with EGCG being the most important catechin). These properties have been proven to help boost your metabolism throughout the day and efficiently burn fat.2

In addition, oolong tea also has been proven to help with weight loss. In a 2009 study, it helped decrease body fat by boosting metabolism and showed promising results for helping to prevent obesity.3

The only issue with the ingredients in Fit Tea is that you don’t know how much of each are included in the tea blend, and if they are enough to help with weight loss. According to one study, 600-900mg of tea catechins per day was the amount needed to burn fat and drop pounds.4

Other Beneficial Ingredients

Fit Tea also includes pomegranate, which studies show can stimulate fat reduction and prevent insulin resistance, 5 and ginger, which can help alleviate gas, bloating and cramps. 6

It also contains guarana, which is another stimulant along with green tea that contains caffeine, one of the reasons that people feel an energy boost with this tea.

Guarana helps to boost metabolism and is also a powerful appetite suppressant. 7

Garcinia Cambogia – Good for Weight Loss or Not?

Fit Tea also includes an ingredient called Garcinia Cambogia, which has mixed reviews on whether or not it can actually help with weight loss. 8

Studies show that this ingredient may only help a tiny bit with weight loss, or may not even help at all. However, it may help to lower appetite by increasing production of the neurotransmitter serotonin.

The other problem with this ingredient, however, is that it can potentially cause dangerous side effects when taken in high doses (and the exact dosage in this weight loss tea is not shown).

Potential side effects include fatigue and brain fog, skin rashes, lower immunity, headaches and digestive problems.

Price and Money Back Guarantee

Price: $45.00 for 28 servings ($1.61 per serving)

Money Back Guarantee?: Questionable

The price of Fit Tea is a bit high in the market for a detox tea.

The issue of whether they have a money back guarantee is questionable. There is no refund information on their website, but when chatting with a customer service representative, they said “if you order Fit Tea and it does not work for you, you can definitely contact us to arrange a refund,” but provided no other details of how that would work.

Fit Tea Conclusion

In summary, this tea is potentially a good option for weight loss, with only a few negatives. Though Fit Tea has the powerhouse ingredients proven to help you lose weight (most importantly green tea and oolong) they don’t state how much of each is in their formula (note that our top-rated tea, 310 Tea, has these ingredients with the correct amounts and is also cheaper).

Reviewers did note that this tea does taste good, provided energy and was easy to use, all positives. There may be a money back guarantee but the details of it are not clear. If you still want to look around, you can compare it to some other brands on this review site.
