Cho Wa Review - Does This Diet Tea Work? Are side effects and poor customer service deal breakers?
No joke – over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about Cho Wa? We looked closely at the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies, and customer service. We also examined hundreds of reviews and comments. Then, we condensed and refined everything here so you could get the bottom line.
What is Cho Wa?
Firstly, this is an immune boosting drink. Cho Wa ingredients include green tea, rhodiola, ginkgo, epimedium, astragalus root, lyceum, euphoria fruit, licorice fruit, shiitake, reishi, and maitake. According to the box, one packet is a serving. We expect you mix it with water or a low-calorie juice for best results.
Cho Wa is manufactured by Kumato Labs, a company based in Signal Hills, California. It is supposed to bring traditional Japanese medicine to the rest of the world. We like that it is all natural, and based in the USA, but read on…
Side Effects – “Watch Out”
The first thing we noticed was reports of Cho Wa side effects. “What people need to realize is that all natural doesn’t always mean safe. Products like this can still cause issues,” said our Research Editor.
”Each time I felt very jittery, heart pounding, stomach ache, diarrhea for several hours afterward, and an overall feeling of weakness,” said one user.
”Both my husband and I had allergy issues with the product. We were having to take our allergy medicine everyday when we normally do not have to,” offered a customer.
Others had no issues with side effects.
“I begin my day with it every morning and I’ve noticed increased energy & a marked reduction in allergy symptoms. As well, I’ve noticed a huge difference in my breathing,” suggested a dieter.
“I really like this tea. I usually drink coffee every morning, but since I have gotten this, I drink this and don’t want coffee. I also do feel that it makes me calmer,” said another.
Poor Customer Service – “Rude!”
There were multiple complaints about customer service issues, which is not something a dieter wants to deal with when they pay good money for a product.
”Really poor customer service. I did further research and discovered there’s been some complaints to the FDA about the product,” said a customer.
”When I called and spoke to customer service, they couldn’t tell me how much caffeine was in the formula and weren’t nice about it,” claimed another.
Others had pleasant experiences.
“Dealing with customer service was nice and easy,” a review shared.
“I had an issue with my order and it was resolved in my favor quickly,” as another put it.
Over the years, we’ve learned it only takes one small thing, like poor support, to turn customers away. If there are side effects, or they have to deal with rude agents, they’ll move on to the competition to get what they are looking for.
The Science – “A Little”
This product contains green tea, which is clinically tested and shown to support good results with weight-loss. But, you can get that from your local grocery store for much cheaper than a box of these tea bags. Also, it’s difficult to get the amount you need with a cup or two a day. Supplements may be a far better option because the ingredients are concentrated.
At DietSpotlight, we want to see science before we can recommend any product, but we also want to know it’s a value to our readers.
The Bottom Line – Does Cho Wa Work?
Do I need to start drinking Cho Wa right now? Green tea is a good ingredient, but the others in the formula are just not supported with the same clinical research. We also have to take the reports of poor customer service into consideration. These factors alone leave us with reservations.
If the time has come to jumpstart your metabolism, you may want to check out a weight-loss product with clinically tested ingredients shown to help you reach your goals.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is Leptigen. We love it because our research into customer feedback revealed no mention of harmful side effects or negative reviews. Plus, we know it’s made with a blend of clinically tested ingredients known to help boost your metabolism to make weight-loss easier.
Right now, you can take advantage of a Special Trial Offer, from the makers of Leptigen. This is what we love to see.
