What You Should Know
Nutra-Slim Tea is sold in boxes of 30 tea bags. The product can easily be confused with Nutri-Slim Tea, but the two weight loss products have completely different ingredient lists. Packaging for the two is very similar and both are created by the same company – Dieter’s. Dieter’s produces many weight loss and slimming formulas, but no official website could be found for any of the products.
List of Ingredients
Cassia Angustifolia (Senna).
Typically, slimming teas like Nutra-Slim Tea will contain a natural laxative and this product is no different. There is only one ingredient in Nutra-Slim Tea – Senna. Senna is a natural laxative that will increase bowel movements with use. There are no fat burning ingredients, metabolism boosters or flavors added to the product. Senna does not have a reputation for being very palatable, so some dieters may find they are unable to drink the tea.
Laxative use is often associated with eating disorders. Weight loss occurring from continued use of laxatives will not be maintained long-term. If the dieter were to choose Nutra-Slim Tea, initial weight loss could be attributed to water loss. Dehydration can quickly occur leaving the dieter feeling lethargic and potentially leading to other health problems.
Laxatives like Nutra-Slim Tea are also associated with a degradation of the intestinal system. Muscles of the lower intestine or colon, work to push waste from the body. If laxatives are used, the muscles do not need to work as hard and soon grow weak. Dependence on laxatives may result leading to a continued need for natural laxatives or over the counter bowel stimulants to maintain healthy daily movements.
Nutra-Slim is sold online for $3.99 per 30 tea bags. With no official website, the dieter is forced to order the product from a third party retailer.
- Nutra-Slim Tea is a laxative.
- Laxative use can lead to dependence.
- Dehydration can occur from using laxatives long-term.
- Senna was previously recalled from the market for potential health risks.
- Nutra-Slim Tea packaging is identical to Nutri-Slim Tea – both are made by the same manufacturer.
Nutra-Slim Tea and Nutri-Slim tea seem to be the same product, but they are different. Both contain single ingredients, both are laxatives and both have the same packaging. This could be confusing for the dieter or consumer. Senna is the only ingredient in Nutra-Slim Tea. Long-term use of laxatives like Senna may lead to dehydration, diarrhea and dependence on laxatives in the future. There are no clinical studies supporting the use of laxatives for weight loss so any literature promoting increased weight loss with their use is simply lying to the consumer. Using laxatives to lose weight may be viewed as part of an eating disorder.
