Bootea Teatox is a 28-day ‘teatox’ combining a daytime and a night-time tea. It claims to help you lose weight and burn fat, by increasing their metabolic rate and suppressing their appetite. It also promises to detox the body, thus improving the skin and making people “feel good about themselves”.
We take a look at Bootea Teatox to find out whether it is worth trying, or if it is just a cleverly marketed diet supplement that comes with a good name and image.
The Daytime Detox contains many ingredients that will cause you to urinate more frequently, so although it may cause you to lose water weight it is unlikely to do anything else.
There is no reason why daytime tea should reduce your appetite, and the energy boosting qualities will probably not exceed those you get from drinking an ordinary cup of tea or coffee.
Green tea is good for health but has not been proven to promote weight loss. Some of the other ingredients may also cause side effects.
The Bedtime Cleanse is essentially a laxative combined with a diuretic. It seems counter-intuitive to go to bed after taking a laxative, and you may be up in the night to visit the bathroom.
Bootea Teatox has a whole range of potential side effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain.
On the official Bootea website, the teatox packages are priced as follows:
Bootea is also available in high street stores such as Boots, Holland & Barrett, and Superdrug.
Bootea Teatox comes in the form of two types of tea – the Daytime Detox and the Bedtime Cleanse. The aim is that you should drink a cup of each tea over a two-week period or a month and it will help you lose weight and detoxify your system.
Bootea Teatox also comes with a free diet plan you can follow for added results.
Bootea is a UK based company (no other details are supplied though) that, according to the advertising, specializes in 100% natural health supplements. The range comprises of the two teas, which you buy as a complete package, but they are available to buy individually as well.
Bootea Daytime Cleanse is a loose tea, which you drink in the morning and contains stimulant yerba mate, and Bedtime Cleanse described as a colon cleanse comes in tea bag form, is stimulant free, and should be taken just before bedtime.
According to the company, the daytime tea will suppress your appetite and give you energy.
The Bedtime Cleanse said to remove toxins contains laxative Senna and will ensure you open your bowels 8 hours after taking. This sounds alarming and makes you wonder what will happen if you happen to be a heavy sleeper and sleep in longer than 8 hours! You take the Bedtime Cleanse every other night.
As well as the tea, the website offers a free diet plan, which you can download as a PDF file, but there is no reason why you should use this plan over any other diet regime.
You are advised to avoid meat products while you are on your detox but apart from this, it is hard to see what special significance the diet plan has for detoxing or for taking with the tea.
It looks a fairly ordinary low-calorie diet plan to us, and you will probably lose weight if you follow it to the letter. Many detoxes advise you to avoid tea, coffee, and alcohol, but this is not mentioned in the product information.
The Bootea Teatox advertising is slick and professional and has a cutting edge appeal. The name itself – Bootea, a play on words around the word booty – meaning butt, ass, specifically female posterior – as defined by the urban dictionary, and the website features an image of the sort of backside that many women would love to have!
Pour a cup of boiling water over the tea, let it brew for 3-5 minutes, then drink. The frequency and timing of Bootea Teatox will depend upon the package, with different ones including daytime blends, nighttime blends, or both.
The company is fully engaged with social media, with a twitter account, a Facebook page, and an Instagram account. All of which you can follow to see images, as well as uploading your own.
The Instagram account seems to have backfired a bit for Bootea, as many of the comments on the Instagram page are along the lines of customers not having received their Bootea packages in the post.
Shockingly, the company have entered into a dialogue on this public forum and have included customer’s confidential PayPal account information for the world to see. There also is an issue of non-delivery, because many customers do not appear to have received the orders they have paid for.
Bootea Teatox supposedly provides a method for detoxing and this in itself is questionable. According to medical opinion, detoxing and the notion of removing so-called toxins from the body is unnecessary.
Detoxification is a cornerstone of many alternative medicinal practices but scientists have dismissed this practice.
Respected UK medical charity Sense about Science concluded that,
‘detox’, as used in product marketing, is a myth and worryingly many of the claims about how the body works were wrong and in some cases the suggested remedies were potentially dangerous.

The Bootea advertising claims to “get you the figure you want with an intense mix of natural ingredients” and claims five key benefits:
The advertising also claims,
At Bootea, we like to encourage each and every person to feel good about themselves. Today’s magazines & media have distorted what beauty is and created an impossible stereotype.
Despite this worthy statement, the advertisers have done exactly what they have criticized today’s media for doing, and have used impossible stereotype image themselves for their advertising.
Most of us could drink all the detox tea in the world and not get a body like the one used on the Bootea advertising.
Bootea Teatox is touted as a detox product, but there is no medical reason why you should need to detox; your liver and kidneys can carry out this process without any additional help.
The teas mainly have a laxative and diuretic effect and although this may help you lose some weight initially, it is not healthy and not recommended for health.
Bootea Teatox does not look as safe as drinking ordinary green tea and will probably not help you get the body you have always dreamed of.

Bootea Teatox is a range of two types of tea. You drink one cup of Daytime Detox in the morning and then a cup of Bedtime Cleanse every other night before bedtime. One tea is supposed to perk you up, help you burn fat and lose weight. The other is described as a colon cleanser and is essentially a laxative.
Daytime Detox contains the following ingredients:
The Bedtime Cleanse does not contain stimulants but will have a laxative effect. Contents include:
Bootea Teatox has a whole range of potential side effects.
The American Herbal Association has recommended that products containing Senna leaves should come with a health warning. It is a laxative, so you can expect sudden and unpredictable bowel movements especially at first.
The teas have a diuretic effect so can cause dehydration. Hawthorn can cause interactions with other prescription medicines. Ginseng can cause a range of side effects, including high blood pressure and low blood pressure.
Bootea Teatox can interact with contraceptive pills and you are advised to use condoms while taking the teas. Taking laxatives is not recommended and can cause your body to become dependent on them according to the NHS. Source
Bootea Teatox is only available from the product website so there are no independent customer reviews available. However, there appears to be a problem with shipping delays and many customers have been kept waiting according to the company’s Instagram page.
No money back guarantee is on offer.
Bootea Teatox is available from the official Bootea website, and it is also available in high street stores such as Boots, Holland & Barrett, and Superdrug.
Shipping is free to UK addresses when spending over £50, but costs £3.99 otherwise. Prices to Europe, the US, and elsewhere in the world vary, but are not what we would consider being cheap for a few teabags.
Bootea Teatox benefits from some powerful advertising and a lively social media presence, and the teas look stylish, healthy, and natural. However, the ingredients are questionable and can cause a wide range of unpleasant side effects. Added to this, if you take oral contraception it will not work and if you take other prescription medicine, it may interact.
In addition, many customers have been left waiting for their products and the customer service team have given confidential customer PayPal information out on their Instagram page. All of this, in addition to the medical advice warning about detoxing in general, leads us to only one conclusion and that is to reject Bootea Teatox.
Daytime Detox: Oolong, maté, ginger root, fennel seed, lemongrass, dandelion leaves, ginseng, gotu kola, and nettle leaves.
Bedtime Cleanse: Senna leaves, peppermint, fenugreek seeds, liquorice root, burdock, hawthorn leaves, valerian, and psyllium seeds.
