I did two things this week. I obsessed over every aspect of Skinny Teatox. Then I wrote this review about it. We looked into the ingredients, side effects, clinical support and customer service. We examined hundreds of user comments. We then condensed and refined the info to give you the info you need.
What is a Skinny Teatox?
First off, Skinny Teatox is a detox weight-loss tea. The ingredients are tea leaves, senna leaf (cassia angustifolia, ginseng, chrysanthemum, cinnamon bark, cloves, rhubarb, ginger (Zingiberaceae), fiber and more. The “more” concerns us a bit because we’ve no idea what ingredient(s) that alludes to. When consumed as a morning and evening drink, it is supposed to reduce bloat and help you lose more weight. As long as you have a tea ball, you can brew Skinny Teatox anywhere. Skinny Teatox, content some natural ingredients, one good thing.
Long-Term Risks – “A Problem?”
The first thing we worry about is risk. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), based on the ingredient profile, Skinny Teatox side effects may occur long-term. “Risks to your body are not acceptable,” says our Research Editor. “There are safe and effective supplements on the market that don’t leave you worried about your health; especially when you take into account several of the ingredients could cause laxative effects.
The NIH offers, “Senna is possibly unsafe when taken by mouth long-term or in high doses. Don’t use senna for more than two weeks. Longer use can cause the bowels to stop functioning normally and might cause dependence on laxatives.
There’s also a warning about taking Skinny Teatox with other laxative ingredients, “There is a concern that using senna along with stimulant laxative herbs might increase the chance that potassium levels in the body might drop too low. Additional herbs include aloe, alder buckthorn, black root, blue flag, butternut bark, colocynth, European buckthorn, fo ti, gamboge, gossypol, greater bindweed, jalap, manna, Mexican scammony root, rhubarb, senna, and yellow dock.” Without a complete list of what makes up the formula we’ve no idea if this is an issue.
Despite these warnings, people are still using the program and some have seen positive effects. One dieter said, “I’ve used one in the past. Didn’t lose any weight but I did notice that I wasn’t bloating and I had more energy. I think the inclusion of fiber helped stop the constipation.
Another claimed, “Curbed my appetite a wee bit but I am a huge eater all my life.”
When a dieter sees a product on the shelf and they want to give it a try, it’s important to take a look at the fine print before jumping in. According to Medline Plus from NIH, this supplement should not be used with birth control pills, digoxin, estrogens, Warfarin or water pills. The dieter may not even know they are taking a water pill as is the case with Lasix, a pill often prescribed for high blood pressure.
Skinny Teatox does admit one contraindication, “Yes, the teatox can potentially reduce the effectiveness of birth control if you take your pill within 4-5 hours of the laxative effect.”
As with any supplement, it is a good idea to talk with your doctor about possible contraindications before starting. This can greatly reduce any chance of side effects.
We’ve found, according to our research, that it takes only one complication, like potentially dangerous side effects, to wreck chances of long-term success. If Skinny Teatox results can only be achieved by taking risks, it’s not worth it.
What’s the Science Have to Say about Skinny Teatox?
You won’t find any scientific research on the Skinny Teatox website. That’s because there is no clinical proof it helps dieters lose more weight. The diuretic and laxative effects may move the scale in the beginning, but that’s just water and could be the cause of adverse reactions. Science is integral at DietSpotlight. If there’s none to support a product, there’s no reason to try it.
The Bottom Line – Does Skinny Teatox Work?
Well now, do we have a final take? Our interest in Skinny Teatox soon lead us to a firm conclusion. We like that the company uses all-natural ingredients and you can purchase the supplement on the official website, but we are hesitant about suggesting a product that comes with potential long-term risk. It also bothers us that there’s no address for the corporate office and it’s not listed by the BBB.
If you’d like to lose and keep weight off, we suggest going with a supplement that packs in clinically-proven ingredients that are not associated with side effects. We also like it when a company is transparent about location.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. We like that the proprietary blend of four ingredients is supported by published scientific research to help increase your metabolism and jump-start fat loss. There’s no talk about adverse side effects and people who’ve used the product are reporting great success.
