Te Divina Review - 5 Things You Need to Know


Te Divina is creating some buzz in the industry, so our research team set out to investigate the ingredients and side effects of this detox tea. There were more than enough negative customer comments on side effects. But does it work? This led us to the scientific research, where unfortunately, we couldn’t find anything on this product. Nevertheless, we condensed the information we found to bring you the truth about Te Divina.

What is Te Divina?

To start with, Te Divina is a detox tea aimed at flushing out harmful toxins and impurities, increasing regularity, boosting energy, improving health and helping you shed some pounds.

We find this long lists of claims hard to believe, especially when The Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics writes, “to the best of our knowledge, no randomised controlled trials have been conducted to assess the effectiveness of commercial detox diets in humans.”[1]

The ingredients include:

  • Soluble fiber
  • Persimmon leaves
  • Chamomile
  • Ginger
  • Blessed thistle

You’re supposed to drink 20 fluid ounces each day (8 with lunch, 4 with a snack, and 8 with dinner). This tea is also claimed to ease stomach distress and promote liver function, but some customer comments on negative side effects actually show the opposite.

The company behind this slimming tea is Vida Divina, which is based in Fontana, CA. However, this product is sold through third-party distributors.

Te Divina Side Effects – “Hanging Out in the Bathroom?”

The first concern we have is with Te Divina side effects. “Some customers have complained of adverse reactions such as diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, and upset stomach,” said our Research Editor. “These adverse effects are too much for some people to deal with.”

“Diarrhea and loose stool. Every time I drink this Te Divina tea. I guess it is technically cleansing my digestive tract, but it’s not very pleasant,” reported one user.

Then again, not all customers mentioned side effects.

One person commented, “Started drinking Te Divina detox tea to cut weight. I have lost three pounds already. No cramping or diarrhea.”

“Helps a little. I do have to pee more frequently. Seems to improve regularity. I haven’t noticed any bad reactions at this point,” revealed yet another.

Te Divina Benefits – “How Does it Perform?”

There is the issue with Te Divina: benefits don’t happen for everyone. Several customers have stated that the weight-loss they experience does not last. For example, one user posted, “Flushed out my colon. I dropped four pounds in one week. But then I stopped drinking it, and the weight came right back.”

There were some encouraging Te Divina detox tea reviews as well.

One person commented, “I like it. Lost two pounds right away. Keeps me more regular.”

“Not a good choice if you’re trying to slim down. This tea is like a laxative. You will not lose any real weight,” said someone else.

Our research tells us that when side effects are an issue, there is a low chance of long-term weight-loss success. This means if a bunch of customers think Te Divina ingredients lead to diarrhea and upset stomach, this might be a problem.

Te Divina Detox Tea – “Solid Science Or No?”

We must take a closer look at the Te Divina ingredients to understand the science behind this product better. It contains chamomile, which has been shown to work as a mild sedative.

It also offers persimmon, myrrh, ginger, and cranberry. These plant components are likely included for flavor. Blessed thistle is incorporated to assist with conditions such as diarrhea, but there is no conclusive evidence it works well.

Some studies have shown that papaya can help balance blood glucose levels. As for soluble fiber, it is added to improve regularity.

Malva leaves are also used and may help reduce inflammation in the digestive tract. Siberian chaga provides antioxidants to combat free radicals. Ganoderma lucidum is often used to lower stress levels and boost immune system health, but more research is needed to back up these claims.

Marsh is a tea plant that is sometimes consumed to strengthen the immune system and improve overall wellness. That said, there is not much substantial evidence that supports this tea as an effective internal cleanser or weight-loss aid.

The Bottom Line – Does Te Divina Detox Tea Work?

Will Te Divina detox tea flush those pounds and help you slim down? Well, we do appreciate that this tea is made with herbal ingredients, but to be honest, there is not much science between detox teas and weight-loss. Also, we’re concerned about the unpleasant side effects some people have reported, such as diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

If you’re serious about shedding more pounds, then we encourage you to find a product that does not cause any unwanted adverse effects and contains essential ingredients that are backed by solid weight-loss research.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This supplement is packed with four natural ingredients, which have been shown to help spark metabolism, boost energy levels and speed up fat loss. We did not see any discouraging remarks about harmful side effects, and the user comments online to tell us people are noticing some solid weight-loss results.

Also, the company behind Dietspotlight Burn is so confident in their product; they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

  • Tracey

    Do u drink this hot or cold?

    • Summer (Editor)

      Hey Tracey. I went back and looked around to see if I could find an answer to your question from the company, but no luck. I can tell you I found nothing about the formula being LESS effective when cold. Hope that helps.

      • Tracey

        Thanks for your help.. I’m only on it for 2 days now so probably too early to feel anything yet because apart from a couple extra pee’s I feel nothing 🙄

        • Sophia Pope

          Directions are also on the back of the tea package.


      We have been drinking the tea since Febraury and I have only had it 2x hot. It is formulated to stay in the refridgerator. Hope this helps.


      I drink it room temp and cold

    • Sophia Pope

      I drink it cold

    • Sophia Pope

      Tracey I drink it cold. I hope people are buying it from an affiliate site and not amazon or one of those sites. Make sure you’re getting the true TeDivina.

  •  Avoid using this at all costs
    Donna (Verified User)

    I have been on the tea for 3 days and absolutely had to stop. I have been vomiting constantly, can’t eat a thing and only sipping water all day. I also had horrendous diarrhoea but it’s the sickness I can’t cope with. Will never try this again and I would advise anyone else to either!

    • Summer (Editor)

      I am very sorry you’ve experienced this Donna. Side effects like this aren’t common with Te Divina, based on our research. Did the side effects stop when you quite using the tea?

    • mihaela

      It also means you have many toxins. The symptoms you have are because your body go into detox .you should have continued..in 1 or 2 days you was back to normal.

  •  Chronic abdominal pains and diarrhoea
    Fiona (Verified User)

    I have been taking the tea for just 2 days and my diarrhoea and cramping is horrendous ! Every hour needing to run to the loo…..even waking me at night ! I feel so tired and drained it’s awful ! Today I had only 1 8oz for breakfast and still the diarrhoea and cramps……I shall not be taking anymore…..not nice at all

    • Annette

      hi Fiona, sorry to hear about your discomfort, you should drink a lot of water, and if the tea is too much for you, drink half the amount so your body can get use to the tea. when detoxing your body goes through changes. but it goes away.

  • Where in cape town

    • Maribel (Editor)

  • Is this something I should be concerned about
    Michele Williams (Verified User)

    I have tried the tea, however I’m a little concerned because now when I pass my stool there’s blood in it so I stopped doing the tea for about a week it went away I started the Tea again and it came back.

    • Yedy Torres

      Hi Michele,

      We recommend to consult your physician before continuing to take this product.

  • Sara

    We just got the tea and haven’t started yet BUT the lady that sold it to me said it also helped with parasites and such. I wonder if those who saw “blood” or had diarrhea were just flushing them all ouT. Fingers crossed it works wonderfully. Will update 💕

  • Liesle

    Can breastfeeding mom drink it?

    • Victoria (Editor)

      Hi! Because of possible interactions with breast feeding, it is best to avoid herbal teas while nursing. Make sure to consult with a physician or licensed herbalist before using any detox herbal teas while breast feeding.

    • Heidi Williams

      I have something breastfeeding moms can drink that is good for both mom and baby!

      • Jones

        What is it

    • Elizabeth Salgado

      No, you can not drink it while nursing…

    • Michelle

      No you cannot drink this while breastfeeding and any new mum should wait at least 6 months before using any detox or weightloss product

  •  It has worked for me.
    Raymond Hutcherson (Verified User)

    I use the Te Divina for 3 months. I lost a total of 34 lbs. In the beginning I had the upset stomach. I attributed that to the cleansing. Now I have no stomach issues and I have kept the weight off and continue to loose.

  • Toini

    When can one start taking this tea after giving birth if not breastfeeding ..

    • Yedy Torres

      Hi Toini,

      Due to possible interactions, we recommend to consult your physician before taking this product.

  •  My Positive Experience With TeDivina Detox Tea
    Sophia Pope (Verified User)

    I have taken products from GNC and I broke out and it made me feel sick. This tea has been awesome for me and my family. I have loss 23 pounds in 3 weeks! I make better choices with my food consumption. More veggies and no meat, dairy or sugar. I’m over 40 so I don’t care how well I eat the pounds would not come off. I look and feel great! I believe most people don’t change their eating habits while on this tea. I also use Alkaline water with the mixture.

  • lorinda

    is it safe for breastfeeding mums?

  • Thanks for the Heads Up

    I read the comments and their reactions on some people. I think I will order it but do a shot glass amount until I can regulate it. I do not want to be pooping all day. Or I could just stay in for the weekend and do Netflix while taking it.
    Thanks for the heads up.

  •  LYNNEFROMCHICAGO (Verified User)

    I love this tea. It really does clean you out. Once you start taking it your body will start to get use too the tea, and you will visit the bathroom less.

    I made my tea last monday but i haven’t drank it yet, as i have been unwell
    Thanks if you can help ?

    • andrew

      It is perfect for cleansing the body

      • Melissa Ingersoll, DH, HC.

        I have been doing the TeDivina consistently each week since February. I also became a distributor when I looked at the ingredients, only 12. I have been doing the tea because I had a horrible parasite infection and the tea has been incredible for flushing them out. I’m Alaskan native and have had a raw meat and fish diet my whole life, lol up until this year. In the beginning the tea was painful, awful, and downright disgusting, but I knew it had to be done. 9 months later, I feel amazing. I do the tea 3 times a day and don’t have the same effects. Before I was total IBS with diarrhea. Now I’m consistent and firm. Anyhow. The TeDivina is program. I try not to market it as a weight loss program but more of a whole body cleansing routine. We ALL should be doing some kind of cleanse/detox a couple times a year because of all the environmental, toxins, etc we come into contact each day. Yada yada. Also, if you have cramping and bloating while drinking this tea, you more than likely have an intestinal parasite infection. A good 75% of the American Population has a parasite infection and they don’t even know it. Bloating after meals is a really obvious sign you’ve got some friends hanging out in your gut. I could go on forever on either topic. I encourage everyone on this thread to research and find a good colon cleanse that works for you. Your health is so important.
