Bootea Coffeetox

Bootea are most well-known for their detox tea (or “teatox”) products, but have now branched out into detox coffee as well. Much like their teas, Bootea Coffeetox is taken for 14 days to detox the body. While this product contains some decent quality coffee and can provide some benefits, such as improved energy, it is not likely to help with weight loss. We are never big fans of detox products anyway (your liver does just fine on its own), and Bootea have been in trouble before for making misleading claims, so proceed with caution with this product.


  • May help increase energy levels and metabolism due to the caffeine
  • Easy and convenient to use


  • Website contains very little information about what it does or the ingredients
  • Potential negative side effects
  • Unlikely to help with weight loss or detoxification of the body
  • Expensive for something that is mostly coffee beans
Bootea Coffeetox
Bootea Coffeetox is a 14-day detox programme, where you simply drink the coffee containing herbal ingredients every morning to help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

We are going to be taking a look at Bootea Coffeetox to see whether it can really help improve health and fitness, or whether it is just coffee with some added extras.

Bootea Coffeetox Overview

What you need to know about Bootea Coffeetox

Bootea Coffeetox is a drink that is taken every morning for 14 days to deliver a powerful detox and help you to meet all of your health and fitness goals.

The drink is a coffee bag that you add boiling water to, just like a regular tea bag, and drink as you would a normal cup of coffee. The product contains active ingredients and high quality brazilian coffee.

The website gives very little information about what the Coffeetox actually does, probably intentionally, as Bootea have been in trouble with the ASA before, due to making false claims. It mentions giving a powerful detox that will help you meet all your health and fitness goals, so presumably it is intended to help the consumer lose weight but they are probably not allowed to say that.

A ‘detox’ is usually carried out to help with weight loss and to generally feel better. However, there is little evidence to suggest that detoxes even work, and the kidneys and liver are generally effective at filtering and eliminating most ingested toxins themselves. As well as this, it is often recommended that caffeine is eliminated during a detox.

The majority of ingredients in the product contain caffeine, so it is likely that the consumer will have increased energy for a short time after drinking it and could therefore work harder during exercising and potentially burn more calories. However, the effects are going to be temporary. There is also nothing to suggest that doing a Coffeetox will help you to detox. Caffeine, however, can cause diarrhoea which could cause slight weight loss.

There is no information about how much of each ingredient each coffee bag contains, so it is unclear how much caffeine a user would be taking each day.

What are the side effects of Bootea Coffeetox?

The majority of potential side effects come from the caffeine in a lot of the ingredients, as well from the coffee itself.

Potential side effects may include headache, insomnia, irritability, diarrhoea, nausea, increased heart rate and breathing, and high blood pressure.

There are also possible side effects from the Siberian Ginseng. These include drowsiness, changes in heart rhythm, sadness, anxiety, and muscle spasms. In high doses, increased blood pressure might occur, however it is not clear how much Ginseng is in the product and as the product is 83% coffee, there is unlikely to be high levels.

How much does Bootea Coffeetox cost?

The 14-day coffeetox comprises of a 14-day supply and costs £24.99.

Delivery within the UK is £3.99, and is delivered next working day when ordering before 10PM.

Bootea Coffeetox Key Features

Bootea Coffeetox is a coffee-based drink that you take in the morning over 14 days, to give the body a detox and to help with health and fitness goals. It contains mostly coffee, alongside other natural ingredients. You make the drink by pouring boiling water over the coffee bag.

Bootea Coffeetox Key Points

  • Bootea is a UK company but ship worldwide
  • Contains a high level of caffeine
  • Contains natural ingredients

Bootea is a UK company that are known for their Bootea Teatox, which is highly promoted on social media, particularly on Instagram where it is endorsed by celebrities. It is often mentioned in their marketing that their Teatox is award-winning, but we were unable to find out what, if any awards it had won.

The Coffeetox is new to their range and is described as giving a powerful detox, which is unlikely. It is mostly made up of Brazilian Ground Coffee, and unclear as to the amounts of the other lauded ingredients.

How to Take Bootea Coffeetox

  • Pour boiling water over the coffee bag, leave to brew for three minutes, and enjoy.

Bootea Coffeetox does contain some ingredients that have potential benefits, however it is likely that these are at a high enough level to provide them. As well as this, the benefits are unlikely to be weight-related or produce a detoxifying effect, as claimed.

Bootea Coffeetox Concerns:

  • Incomplete ingredients profile – there is no information about how much of each of the ingredients are in each bag
  • Problems with delivery of products from Bootea
  • May cause side effects from the caffeine

Bootea Coffeetox claims to help with detoxifying the body however, according to medical opinion, a detox is unnecessary.

What does Bootea Coffeetox claim to do?

Bootea Coffeetox claims to deliver a powerful detox that will help you reach your health and fitness goals, just in one bag each day.

From all of the marketing and Bootea’s appearance on social media, it is clear that it is intended to be a weight loss product, however due to issues with the ASA and Bootea being found to make false claims, it is likely that they can’t suggest this anymore.

Does Bootea Coffeetox work?

It is unlikely that Coffeetox actually works as a detoxifier, and there is no evidence to suggest that we need to detox our bodies anyway.

Bootea Coffeetox does contain some ingredients that have potential benefits. It contains fennel, which could help with reducing water retention as it acts as a diuretic, and can also help to remove toxins. However the levels in the product are unlikely to be high enough to have much of an effect. Dandelion Root is also said to have a diuretic effect, although there is a lack of evidence to support this. Even if the levels of these ingredients were high enough to create a diuretic effect, it would mean that the consumer would just go to the toilet more, rather than lose any significant weight.

It is likely to give the consumer increased energy from all of the caffeine, but that is temporary and could come with side effects from all of the caffeine in the different ingredients combined.

There could be potential benefits from the Japanese Matcha and the Green tea due to the high levels of antioxidants, but again, the amounts of these in each drink is likely to be too low. This is particularly true of the Matcha as it is an expensive product.

Bootea Coffeetox Ingredients

  • Brazilian Ground Coffee: Coffee is a popular source of caffeine as well as a source of lots of nutrients. It can exert effects like a supplement or drug. As Coffeetox is a coffee drink, it is the main ingredient making up 83% of the product.
  • Fennel: An aromatic seed used as spice and flavorant. It is a diuretic and can reduce water retention by flushing out excess fluids. It can also help to remove toxins and reduce the risk of urinary tract problems.
  • Yerba Mate: A tea brewed from a plant native to South America. It is a good source of caffeine and contains bioactive compounds like quercetin and ursolic acid. It is marketed as an appetite suppressant and to help burn fat due to its caffeine content; however evidence suggests that this can only be achieved through high doses, if at all. Source
  • Dandelion Root: A vegetable that is used as a diuretic effect when ingested. There is a lack of good human evidence for this though. It is a good source of potassium.
  • Garcinia Cambogia: A fruit that is known to enhance the culinary experience of food, and enhances satiety from a meal. Its usage as a fat burner does not appear to extend to humans.
  • Guarana: A seed that contains more caffeine than coffee beans. It is often taken for its stimulatory properties.
  • Japanese Matcha: A finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. It is known for its many health benefits.
  • Green Tea: Green tea is high in antioxidants called polyphenols and catechins, and some studies suggest that these can help oxidise fat.
  • Siberian Ginseng: A herb used in traditional medicine to combat fatigue. It is an adaptogen compound. Preliminary evidence suggests that it could improve physical performance during periods of high intensity exercise. Unfortunately, this effect is not very reliable. Source

Watchdog Verdict

Bootea have become well known on social media, with some powerful marketing. However, there have been reports of their other, very well-known product ‘Bootea Teatox’ – which has been around a lot longer – interfering with women’s contraceptive pills due to the laxative effect, although it does appear that the Senna Leaf has now been removed from the Teatox. This could also potentially happen with the Coffeetox due to the high caffeine content, and therefore the website should contain warnings. There is a warning on the FAQ page about the pill being affected by their teas.

Bootea Coffeetox’s ingredients mostly contain caffeine, and although it is unclear how much is contained in each coffee bag, it is likely to be a very high amount overall. This would likely be responsible for any perceived ‘benefits’, plus a wide range of side effects.

Some of the ingredients, such as Fennel and Yerba Mate, could have an effect on weight loss, however, there is no information about how much is contained in the product. The coffee is 83% of the total product, which means the rest of the ingredients combined are only 17% so it is unlikely that there is much of each in each coffee bag.

Overall, we do not recommend Bootea Coffeetox to our readers.
