So is Fit Tea Fat Burner worth a try? We take a look to find out more.
Fit Tea Fat Burner comes from the Fit Tea company, which appears to be based in Arizona. Fit Tea is best known for a range of detox teas, but this company also sell a couple of weight loss supplements such as this one. Fit Tea deal purely online, selling from the official website or via Amazon.
This supplement looks pretty safe for most people but potential side effects may include; insomnia, restlessness, increased heart rate and blood pressure, diarrhoea, anxiety jitteriness, stomach gas, or bloating.
You should not take probiotics if you have a weakened immune system, and you should seek medical advice immediately if you experience a fever, swelling, or other major effects following taking.
Fit Tea Fat Burner is also available via Amazon USA for the same price.
Fit Tea Fat Burner looks OK as a supplement and if you use it to support your own efforts, you may find that it helps make weight loss a bit easier. However, the efficacy of the green tea/caffeine combo will largely depend upon your own physical make up and tolerance to caffeine, so effects may vary from person to person. That said there will be some health benefit to using, even if you do not lose weight so at least this supplement should do more good than harm. And we don’t always say that about supplements!
The lack of customer feedback, guarantee, or any background details about the Fit Tea company are also matters for concern, so although we quite like Fit Tea Fat Burner it is not good enough to recommend it to the Watchdog readers.
Fit Tea Fat Burner Review
Fit Tea Fat Burner is an old name for a new supplement! And in truth we wish that companies would not do this because it makes life very confusing for everyone.
The old Fit Tea Fat Burner contained a range of weight loss favourites including African mango, Acai and Macqui berry, and green tea but this version has since been discontinued. The new version of Fit Tea Fat Burner contains only green tea, caffeine, and probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus.
In our opinion, the new supplement seems to be an improvement on the previous version. The ingredient quantities are provided (something that was not the case with the earlier supplement) and with 1100mg of green tea per two capsule serving, it is in line with clinical investigation into green tea.
Studies suggest that green tea and added caffeine is a winning combination. Green tea is high in antioxidants, specifically a type called ECGC (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) and this combined with caffeine appears to have a fat burning effect, that works better for weight loss than green tea or caffeine alone. When combined with exercise and resistance training it seems to improve results for many people.
The easiest way to take green tea is simply to drink it as a beverage but if you do not enjoy the flavour, a supplement is probably the next best thing. Green tea also has numerous health benefits beyond weight loss and the caffeine content, roughly the equivalent of two cups of instant coffee should also give your energy levels a boost.
How to Take Fit Tea Fat Burner
- Directions are not provided.
- We suggest you take with plenty of water early in the day. Take too close to bedtime and the caffeine may disturb sleep patterns.
The other ingredient in Fit Tea Fat Burner is a probiotic called Lactobacillus Acidolphus which may help the digestive system. So called good bacteria helps the digestive flora in your gut to flourish and keep your digestive system working efficiently. Although the science of probiotics is fairly new, probiotics are increasingly popular, showing up in numerous mainstream products such as yoghurts.
That said, even the most researched strains such as Lactobacillus Acidolphus have not yet been sufficiently developed in basic and clinical research to warrant approval for health claim status. Probiotics for weight loss remain largely untrialled and untested. Source
Fit Tea Fat Burner Concerns:
- Lack of transparency regarding the Fit Tea company
- No guarantee and no feedback. The Fit Tea company does not seem to offer much engagement with customers
- This supplement seems very overpriced. This is an expensive way of taking some fairly cheap ingredients
There is very little background info about Fit Tea, although according to their information, all supplements are manufactured in the USA which is good. The company seems to be based in Arizona but without a physical address or phone number, they obviously are not keen to engage with customers. We never like this lack of transparency because in some cases it can indicate a company may have something to hide.
Frit Tea are best known for their detox tea range. We covered Fit Tea Detox in a previous review.
We also covered the previous version of Fit Tea Fat Burner in an earlier review. In our opinion the lack of information about the ingredients profile was one of the things that let it down.
What Does Fit Tea Fat Burner Claim To Do?
According to the product information, Fit Tea “back their supplements with clinical studies.”
The supplement contains, “ECGC to help you lose weight”
There is a video you can watch on the product website which just says the same thing.
The bulk of the advertising is made up of customer’s before and after pictures. These look quite good, but of course we have no way of knowing whether or not they are genuine.
Does Fit Tea Fat Burner Work?
It might work. Green tea and caffeine is a combination that can help support your weight loss efforts. You may find that this supplement increases energy and gives you a lift. There have been numerous clinical tests into green tea and caffeine, and by and large results seem positive. Taken together, “these functional ingredients have the potential to produce significant effects on metabolic targets such as thermogenesis, and fat oxidation.”
However, this effect may not work on everyone. The efficacy may be impaired by “An ethnic or genetic effect” It also might not make much difference if you are already an habitual caffeine or green tea drinker.
All that said many people notice benefits and slight improvements to weight loss when taking green tea and caffeine in supplement form, so this supplement may be worth a try. Source
We haven’t mentioned the probiotic component, because it is very minor when compared to the rest of the formula. In our opinion you would probably get greater benefit from probiotic or live yoghurts, which are easily available from any supermarket.
What Are The Ingredients of Fit Tea Fat Burner?
Serving size is equal to two capsules. Amounts here are per serving size (2 capsules)
- Lactobacillus Acidolphus (20M CFU): Lactobacillus acidophilus lives in the intestine, vagina, and your mouth, and helps the body’s immune system fight off infection. This probiotic is present in yoghurt as well as Japanese foodstuffs miso and tempeh, and is included in probiotic supplements. May help to reduce antibiotic side effects. Source
- Green Tea Leaf Extract (1100mg): Green tea contains antioxidants called polyphenols, which are proven to prevent damage caused by free radicals. Catechins found in green tea, specifically ECGC (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) are proven to burn fat, especially when used in conjunction with caffeine, which increases fat oxidation. Source
- Caffeine (150mg): Most diet supplements contain caffeine, and it is ideal for giving you a quick energy boost. It can increase the speed of the metabolism and help fat burning, but the effects are often short lived as you become accustomed to use. When used in combination with green tea it may enhance the fat burning effect. A cup of instant coffee contains around 75mg of caffeine, so this serving size is the equivalent of around two cups.

Does Fit Tea Fat Burner Have Any Side Effects?

- Increased heart rate

Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Check with your physician or your pharmacist if you are taking prescription medication, or if you have an underlying medical condition. Do not take this supplement if you have a weakened immune system because probiotics can introduce infection. Seek medical advice if you experience side effects such as a fever or swelling.
Are There Any Customer Reviews For Fit Tea Fat Burner?
There are three customer reviews hosted on the official Fit Tea website, and although this supplement is on sale via Amazon nobody has yet reviewed it.
Unsurprisingly the three reviews are all positive!
This customer made lifestyle changes at the same time as taking this supplement and saw noticeable results,
I started a workout plan and I wanted a all natural supplement to use for weightless. I wanted a all natural fat burner. I learned that the fit tea fatburner is mainly a antioxidant from green tea, EGEC levels in the fat burner are clinically proven. So I ordered it from Fit Tea. One word: WORKS! Man did it give me super energy. I gave up Coke because I felt like I didn’t need any more of it. The best part other then walking every day and taking the pills I lost 12 pounds. I was floored by it. Love it.
It is important to point out that giving up coca cola and other sodas and increasing exercise will have a weight loss effect regardless of taking a supplement.
The other comments;

I love the new Fit Tea Fatburner! Gives me so much energy! I can’t express the energy on it. Makes my workouts so much easier to do. ORDER THEM!
