Skinny teatox is a tea formula that offers quite a number herbal blends aimed at weight loss and it’s accompanied up shots.
If we were to assert that tea is the second most consumed liquid in the world, we will not be too wrong. Tea is enjoyed as a cold and hot beverage around the world and it is not only limited to the ‘English tea’ term for the UK but almost 80% of households in the US consume black tea with the nation being the third largest importer of tea.
Tea is nature’s souvenir to us with no fat, sodium, sugar or carbonation being virtually calorie-free. In addition, tea also contains powerful anti-oxidants, the flavonoids that are the topic of latest research trend.
Many researchers have pointed out the beneficial effects of tea in lowering the risks for heart diseases, certain kinds of cancers, preservation of brain function, boosting of metabolism and getting rid of obesity, reducing the risks for osteoporosis and so on.
There is nothing better to slim and trim your figure than to consume tea if you are a passionate and devoted tea drinker. However, the upshots of tea are multiplied if they are a blend of several to provide the ultimate of body detox.
Today’s retail is overwhelmed with tea combinations that have grand claims to make and the present review will analyze Skinny teatox for its authenticity of the ingredients and effectiveness of projected outcome.

Skinny teatox ingredients
The ingredients of Skinny teatox blend are
- tea leaves
- Senna leaves
- And more
Skinny teatox does not specify the type of tea leaves added in the final blend, whether it is white, black or traditional green. Regardless of the type of leaves used, the tea made by each of them has a long list of benefits including revs up the metabolism and controlling the LDL (the bad cholesterol levels).
It also promotes the blood supply to the brain thus improving focus and concentration without overstimulating the heart.
Senna tea is quite popular with weight conscious individuals due to its laxative and diuretic properties. It not only reduces the water weight from the body but also cleanses the colon of the toxic wastes.
The root of the ginseng has effects on weight loss, energy up gradation, cancer prevention and improving the cognitive performance. Ginseng promotes weight loss by controlling enzymes and hormones that have a vital role to play in appetite control and fat deposition. It also improves insulin sensitivity in the body and promotes the growth of the microorganisms in the gut that reduces fat absorption.
Cinnamon is an aromatic spice that aids weight loss by controlling insulin, lowering blood sugars and boosting metabolism. It has some role to play in suppressing appetite and lowering cholesterol. It is recognized as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA.
Clove is used in combination with cinnamon and cumin to accelerate weight loss.
Ginger aids in weight loss by its thermogenic and digestive properties.
Rhubarb is known for its low-calorie count and catechins, the chemicals that are responsible for its metabolism boosting property. How it is added to this tea is not understood, however, may be the extract has some role to play.
Chrysanthemum tea has a wide range of benefits but weight loss is not one of them according to our research.
The manufacturer has added ‘more’ to the ingredient’s list but not provided any details, a marketing gimmick or some other ingredient we cannot say much.
What we like about Skinny teatox

What concerns us about Skinny teatox?
The ingredients are all natural. The Senna leaves are particularly very potent diuretic and laxative in nature, being the main ingredient of the evening dose of Skinny teatox. The expected side effects of Senna tea are frequency and urgency of bathroom visits in addition to abdominal cramps.
These side effects do not become a concern until they reach a stage of diarrhea with severe abdominal cramps, vomiting, headaches and dizziness.
Our main concern and postulation are that the entire weight loss outcome of Skinny teatox is dependent on the evening dose that consists of Senna leaves. Research indicates that Senna fruit is safe to use while the leaves are a safe non-prescriptive option for short-term use. A higher dose or a longer duration of oral intake of Senna tea can disturb the normal functioning of bowel and may cause electrolyte imbalance in the end.
The official website of Skinny teatox also warns against the severe of side effects and advises to lower the evening dose or consult a doctor.
Another matter of concern is its potential to reduce the effectiveness of birth control pill if you are taking any. The laxative effects of the evening tea will trim down the chances of the specific cautious approach so you might want to think twice before initiating the Skinny teatox course.
The laxative cleansing of Skinny teatox could be a way to ‘quick-fix’ weight loss problem and a mean of abuse for some weight watchers.
Does the Skinny teatox tea work?
Skinny teatox has some positive and encouraging reviews and testimonials on the website. We tried to research some authentic customer reviews and rating on Skinny teatox and came up with quite negative postings online as
“Full of diuretic and laxatives which can be dangerous in excess amounts”
“Any weight loss will likely be fluid”
“Nothing in this tea has been tied to any real weight loss”
“This is gross and not likely to have any effect at all”
According to our analysis of the ingredients, Skinny teatox is a refreshing and detoxifying tea with its stimulants like ginseng, cinnamon, and ginger. It might help you lose weight but only in the form of water and any stored waste in the colon.
Once your gut is cleaned off the wastes, we doubt it will have any true effects on the fat loss process of the body. Many of the ingredients are herbal and herbal remedies have known to play their role but with time and more research could be added in this direction.
Fat loss and weight loss are two separate courses of action. If you are losing weight on the scale, it is not an indicator of actual fat loss, which is the more permanent solution to the problem.
The evening dose of Skinny teatox with Senna as the primary tool for detoxification, a course lasting than no more four weeks is advised because of its potential side effects.
Our final say
If you are looking for a general cleanse and detox your body, you can opt for its 7, 14 or 28-day plan occasionally. However, for individuals who are after an honest weight loss, you will have to put in more effort than Skinny teatox.
