Fancy a New Year “Teatox” ?
Are you looking to detox your system in the New Year? Perhaps you are looking for something simple to clear out your system after over-indulging this festive season?Have you considered a TeaTox?
Bootea is a natural and preservative free tea which makers say can help burn fat, regulate blood sugar levels and assist with the digestion of food.
The £19.99 “teatox” contains 14 teabags for daytime drinking and 14 to take before bed.
Fans of Bootea already include Katie Price, TOWIES Mark and Jess Wright, One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, Michelle Keegan and ex-Made in Chelsea beauty, Caggie Dunlop.
The Bootea Daytime tea works by speeding up the metabolism, helping the body convert food into energy to burn calories whilst also suppressing appetite.
The Bootea Bedtime Cleanse tea works while you sleep, cleaning out the digestive system and helping prevent excess calories from being absorbed and stored as fat.
“Many people use tea to help with weight loss, but what Bootea does, is combine several different herbs and spices in two distinct blends to help maximise this effect” said Alex Thompson, Nutritionist for Holland & Barrett.
“Ingredients such as Chinese oolong tea and ginger root are known for their health benefits, although people should remember to combine their ‘teatox’ with a balanced diet and active lifestyle too.”
Using tea for weight loss is a growing trend according to Holland & Barrett, who is rolling Bootea out to all 720 of its high street stores after seeing increased searches for the product on its website.
Priced at £19.99 for a 14 day supply, Bootea is available from stores nationwide and online at www.hollandandbarrett.com

Now I am really NOT a tea drinker but I can cope with green tea so thought I would give this a go. The daytime and night teas taste quite different but both are drinkable and I actually looked forward to them. The daytime tea is quite refreshing and invigorating and a nice way to start the day and the night tea, although a stronger taste (largely from the senna leaves I think) is a nice, relaxing way to end the day.
In terms of how the tea matches up to its claims … I wouldn’t say it burns fat but it certainly suppresses the appetite and cleanses the system, making you feel less bloated and have more energy. It seems to kick start the digestive system into action, great if yours is on the sluggish side.If you do decide to give it a go make sure you only take the night tea every other day as directed!I’d say if you are looking for an instant weight loss system that will help you shed a stone then this isn’t for you BUT if you are looking for something easy to get you going on the way to your weight loss goals that will give you a good clear out and invigorate you then this is absolutely the thing to try.Good Luck!
