Smooth Move Tea contains laxative ingredients to relieve occasional constipation. The official Smooth Move website sells tea by the single package or the ½ case. Information found online about Smooth Move Tea main ingredient, Senna, states that Senna should not be used for more than 10 days. Unless the dieter is planning on reselling the product, having a ½ case of laxatives on-hand could lead to laxative addiction and difficulty passing waste without the use of a laxative.

Smooth Move Tea also includes ingredients that are known to cause serious health problems, especially for people using prescription or over the counter diuretics. For $5.49 per package, he dieter could be taking a risk that could end in health problems and serious side effects. Smooth Move Tea comes in organic and chocolate.

List of Ingredients

Smooth Move Tea Organic: Organic Senna Leaf and Extract, Organic Licorice Root, Organic Bitter Fennel Fruit, Organic Sweet Orange Peel, Organic Cinnamon Bark, Organic Coriander Fruit, Organic Ginger Rhizome and Orange Peel.

Smooth Move Tea Chocolate: Organic Senna Leaf, Breadnut Seed, Organic Licorice Root, Cocoa Seed and Organic Carob Pod.

Product Features

Senna is an ingredient that works to increase bowel movements by gathering water from the body like a diuretic. One concern with using Smooth Move Tea is the inclusion of licorice root in the ingredient list. Licorice root, when taken with another ingredient with diuretic effects, can lead to seriously low potassium levels. The heart needs sufficient potassium to beat and control blood pressure. If potassium reaches risky levels, blood pressure could rise dramatically and death can occur. Both Smooth Move Tea varieties include licorice root as an ingredient. Despite the other ingredients, there is no reason to trust a supplement that can cause death.

Recently, more and more dieters are turning to laxatives to increase weight loss. Most will find the scale dropping dramatically for the first few days, but this weight loss is attributed to water loss and not fat loss.

Advantages

  • Temporary weight loss.

Disadvantages

  • Senna can work in the body as a diuretic.
  • Licorice root, when taken with a diuretic, can cause severely low potassium levels.
  • Laxatives are not a healthy weight loss choice.
  • Losing water weight does not last after laxatives are stopped.

Conclusion

Smooth Move Tea, and other Smooth Move products, contain a dangerous combination of ingredients. When Senna and Licorice Root are taken together, dieters and consumers can experience heart problems, increase blood pressure, impaired kidney function, impaired function of muscles and nerves. No weight loss or laxative supplement is worth taking if the combination of ingredients can lead to serious health risks. Senna is also linked to dependence, which is another reason to stay away from Smooth Move Tea.

    This s a good product, but user must remember that this is certainly not a permanent cure for constipation. In India, Senna is used freely by herbalist and is found non harming.

    I have been using Smooth Move Tea off and on for years. I know it is not good to take forever, but it is the only thing that works for constipation for me.

    I truly love this product as I have chronic constipation and nothing has ever worked as great as Smooth Move. However, I realize that the package warns of a possibility of cramps. The cramps I experience with this product are also accompanied with severe nausea (no actual vomiting). Today I left work early due to the intense stomach discomfort after I used your product. As soon as I got home, I relieved myself and felt fine. I was too embarrassed to go back into work for fear that my boss would want an explanation as to why I was suddenly well, again. Besides the discomfort Smooth Move may cause, I give its effectiveness 5 stars
