You may be surprised by what I say in this BioFiTea review. We took a comprehensive look at the ingredients, side effects, and scientific research. Moreover, we sorted through all kinds of user comments we found on the internet. At this point, we summarized and compacted all the data and details to give you the info you need.

BioFiTea Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is BioFiTea?

To start off with, BioFiTea is marketed as an “herbal dietary” product that helps reduce weight, flush out fats and toxins and promote a healthy digestive system. The key ingredient is senna leaves, which are a natural diuretic and laxative. You simply add one teabag to eight ounces of hot water and allow it to steep for about 10 minutes before drinking. Both women and men can use it. The formula is not designed to increase metabolism or improve fat loss, like other weight-loss supplements.

This tea is made by Diamond Laboratories, Inc. and it was initially released in 2006. You can purchase BioFiTea through websites like Amazon. You may notice changes to your bathroom habits and some water weight loss but read on…

User Complaints – “Be Aware?”

The first issue we came across with BioFiTea ingredients was a series of complaints. According to our Research Editor, “There are plenty of problems about BioFiTea for weight-loss. It’s evident, according to reviews, that side effects are an ongoing issue.”

One customer complained, “I was going to the bathroom like crazy but it was killing my insides. Please don’t use laxatives for weight-loss.”

“I drink Biofit tea for the first time…it’s terrible…I go to toilet and vomiting…headache and dizziness,” said another user.

Lack of Weight-Loss Results – “Not Good”

We were unable to pinpoint any weight-loss studies that support this herbal tea, and that showed in the customer experiences. According to one user, “I’m using this product for many days but not having any effect.”

Another dieter stated, “It’s like a laxative, but didn’t help me lose any weight.”

Our research has revealed that if there is a certain part of a diet product that is especially problematic or upsetting (lack of studies, too many customer complaints, steep price tag) the chances of long-term success are not good. This means if BioFiTea does not promote real weight-loss results in numerous people, this could be an issue.

The Science Behind BioFiTea – “Clinical Proof?”

At DietSpotlight, we need to see published scientific studies that support the diet product and how it helps with weight-loss. In regards to BioFiTea, there is no actual clinical research presented. Therefore it is unclear whether or not this herbal cleansing tea works as well as claimed. We do know none of the ingredients will increase calorie burn, metabolism or fat loss. There are supplements out there with clinically testing shown to work.

The Bottom Line – Does BioFiTea Work?

So, what is the final word on this one? There are plenty of laxative products on the market that claim to help with weight-loss. But, you need to keep in mind that these do not typically boost metabolism or encourage any fat loss. Instead, they cause frequent bowel movements and urination. With this in mind, we have reservations about recommending the formula to dieters as a viable solution.

If you want to drop serious pounds and slim down more quickly, we encourage you to choose a diet supplement that contains clinically tested ingredients that are clearly connected with weight-loss. It’s also important to take user experiences into consideration.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. It uses a proprietary blend of four unique ingredients, which have been shown to help improve fat loss and elevate metabolism. Moreover, we didn’t locate much talk of unpleasant side effects and dieter comments around the web show people see amazing results. Everything about this weight-loss supplement is exactly what we suggest dieters look for.

Plus, the people that make Leptigen are so confident in their formula they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a benefit. You honestly have nothing to lose but that extra weight you’ve been trying to drop!

Previous BioFiTea Review (Updated August 12, 2014):

BioFiTea Review: What You Should Know

BioFiTea is an herbal tea colon cleansing aid that claims to flush away unwanted fats and toxins through the power of senna, which supposedly promotes digestive health, bowel regularity and more importantly, a slimmer and more attractive waistline. They recommend sipping this herbal concoction twice a day to stimulate digestive emptying, especially after a big meal.

BioFiTea is currently available through various online retailers for up to $60.00 per 90 count box, which is nearly five times as expensive compared to over-the-counter herbal teas. BioFiTea isn't cheap, but they claim it's more effective than the competition. They also offer an unlimited money back guarantee for unsatisfied customers, provided you pay your own shipping fees.


Senna is BioFiTea's main ingredient.

Product Features

BioFiTea's main ingredient, senna, is the source of most of its toxin-fighting power--and a source of controversy.

Better known as senna alexandrina, scientists commonly refer to senna as a purgative, or a natural laxative. But senna isn't soothing or gentle on the intestinal tract; instead, it directly stimulates the lower bowel, causing immediate contractions and quick evacuation within hours of use. It forces the body to expel waste and water, which may cause an electrolyte imbalance.

But senna isn't ineffective--studies show laxatives can cause temporary weight loss, caused by the loss of fluids during evacuation. Senna even has stimulant properties which may cause anorexia, or a prolonged loss of appetite. This stimulant effect may also put a strain on the heart, however, and could cause serious interactions for people with heart disease, high blood pressure or a history of anxiety. Continual use, which BioFiTea advocates, could also cause chronic diarrhea, fainting, severe dehydration or laxative dependence, a condition where the lower bowel cannot function without the use of laxatives.

Numerous health organizations also warn senna can also be addictive. Generally, though, occasional use of herbal teas with senna, such as BioFiTea, probably won't cause immediate dependence. Side effects can be experience with just one use of BioFiTea, however.


  • Senna, its main ingredient, may cause temporary weight loss.
  • You do not need to follow a diet plan while taking BioFiTea.


  • Occasional use of BioFiTea may cause some abdominal discomfort
  • BioFiTea may cause serious interactions in people with with pre-existing heart conditions.
  • BioFiTea is very expensive--nearly five times more expensive than other dieting teas.

Verdict on BioFiTea Slimming Tea

BioFiTea maintains it is the cure all for detoxifying the body and stimulating weight loss, but this weight loss is probably caused by the laxative effect of senna, not the mysterious detoxifying power of BioFiTea. It may cause weight loss, however, if you're willing to risk the possibility of developing a serious electrolyte imbalance, dehydration or laxative dependence.
