We take an in depth look at Fruiteatox to find out.
Fruiteatox comes in a choice of packages – the 14-day or 28-day option. It comprises of two tea blends; one that you drink in the morning, the other last thing at night.
The idea is that doing this will purify your system, revitalise your energy levels and make you generally more beautiful and healthy.
Daytox Lemon is the daytime blend. It contains lemon oil for flavour plus a blend of Ginseng, Yerba Mate – a caffeine rich leaf often drunk as a beverage and oolong tea, a prized Chinese tea variety. All these ingredients will perk you up so drinking this tea in the morning will probably set you up for the day in the same way as a coffee.
In addition Daytox Lemon contains culinary ingredients; ginger root fennel seeds and lemongrass. There are some proven health benefits to these ingredients and fennel is also a diuretic so it will increase urination.
More worryingly, Daytox Lemon also contains Liquorice root. Although we are all familiar with liquorice as flavouring, in root form liquorice can be dangerous. It is a powerful laxative and can cause assorted side effects.
Sleeptox Orange is the evening tea blend you drink before you go to bed. It contains well-known natural herbs Chamomile, Valerian and Lavender, all ingredients that will help you sleep, but more worrying contains Senna and Hawthorn.
Senna is a powerful laxative. The American Herbal Products Association warns against use because it is very harsh on your system. Senna contains a chemical called sennoside which irritates the lining of the bowel and although it can be effective short term for constipation relief, it is not advised to take for longer than is strictly necessary.
Hawthorn comes with some health issues too and is well known for causing unpredictable side effects such as increasing and decreasing blood pressure.
The final ingredients are orange oil and orange peel.
The company claims the tea is made and bagged in the UK at a facility that is part of the UK Tea Council and is Ethical Tea Partnership. The company is in Reginald Ames in Kent and Fruiteatox is also ISO9001 certified.
Fruiteatox does not sell any other supplements, just the Fruiteatox packages which are available in various sizes.
There is also a diet and exercise plan and vegan eating plan both of which you can buy from the site for £2.99. These come as PDF downloads.
“Stop the diet, Start a life style” The Fruiteatox slogan is catchy and easy to remember.
The product website features images of sandy beaches and even a handwritten message from the founder called Sarah.
This all looks lovely but try to search for any information about Sarah and you will soon be disappointed. We are frankly sceptical that Sarah even exists.
All the time you are on the website, small pop ups appear telling you that someone from a location around the world has bought one of the products.
Stay on the site for too long and you do start noticing the same addresses popping up. It is not very convincing.
According to the product information:
Fruiteatox was created out of a shared passion to live a healthy, stress-free lifestyle; we’re the tea specialists who focus on feeling good from the inside-out. Our teatox, combined with our free healthy eating plan will radiate your skin and help you lose weight to give you the body you have always wanted!
There is no proof that any of this is true.
Fruiteatox is a two part so called teatox programme. Ingredient quantities are not provided. The country of origin of each ingredient is stated. Although this is interesting, we would have preferred to learn more about the strength of the ingredients.
We wouldn’t recommend you to stop the diet! If you are looking to lose weight we cannot see how this teatox will offer any support.
In addition, some of the ingredients are worrying and may cause unpleasant side effects, including interfering with medication including the contraceptive pill. This tea will not help you start a healthy lifestyle.
According to the product information, Fruiteatox does not have any adverse effects but the ingredients list tells a different story. Some customers may experience side effects. These may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18.
Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Beware – Fruiteatox may interact with the birth control pill so you will need to take additional contraception while taking the teatox.
Check with your doctor first if you are taking prescription medication in case of interactions or if you have an existing medical condition.
Cease use if you experience side effects or an allergic reaction and consult your doctor.
As is usual with some of the lesser known teatox tea products, Fruiteatox is only available via the product website so there is no risk of any adverse feedback comments.
All customer reviews posted on the Fruiteatox site are positive. Here is a typical positive comment
I have just finished my teatox and I have lost 3lbs! I am just about to order the 28 day teatox and hopefully lose 6lb!!
Nobody has a less than 100% positive experience! We are sceptical about all this glowing feedback.
Fruiteatox is not going to help you lose weight or start a healthy lifestyle. There is no proof that these combinations of ingredients will be good for health or for weight loss.
We like the herbal ingredients chamomile, lavender and valerian in the Sleeptox because these probably will help you sleep. We quite like the tea content as well but taking Senna is not advisable and some of the other ingredients, most notably Liquorice and Hawthorn are known for causing unpredictable side effects. .
The American Herbal Products Association have warned consumers against using Senna for longer than 7 days and if you are not suffering from constipation there seems little point to taking it anyway.
If you want to get into the healthy tea habit, why not just buy some good quality green tea to drink in the morning and a herbal tea such as chamomile or valerian to drink at night? That way you enjoy the experience and the taste of unusual teas without any risk and at much less cost.

We are not very impressed by Fruiteatox. We have seen many so called “tea tox” supplements on the market in the recent months, all claiming to boost health and weight loss.
Despite the claims that Fruiteatox is a way to stop the diet and start a lifestyle, we would not recommend you try it. You are very unlikely to lose weight by taking Fruiteatox and the lifestyle changes it causes may be more than you bargained for and not in a good way.
We really dislike teatoxes that claim to be good for your health when they are likely to cause unpleasant side effects. It is unfair to customers and potentially dangerous so, this is a very easy decision. We reject Fruiteatox.
Thousands of customers have cut the fat with this fast and powerful thermogenic fat burner. Can suppress appetite, boost energy levels and elevate mood without the jitters.
