Hello people of the internet! For the past two weeks I have been participating in the fad of tea detoxing. I received a 14 day sample of *Slendertoxtea daytox and sleeptox tea. These products are supposed to help assist with weight loss, bloating, increase your energy, and your metabolism. Oh, and my favorite part: Cleanse your colon. </sarcasm>
As a blogger, I feel the need to be honest with you. Just because I was sent a product doesn't mean I'm going to write a glowing review about it. I wasn't happy with this one. I thought it tasted great and that's really the only highlight of this experience. Honestly, I don't know what I expected when I started the teatox. I definitely didn't think that I would be dropping serious weight in 14 days. We all know that it doesn't work like that. Maybe I thought it would give me some energy or help with normal bloating.. I can tell you one thing it did do though: Cleaned (the ever living hell out of) my colon.
This is the part of the review where we all need to be a little mature, okay?
On the package it says to start on the weekend or on your day off. I presume that warning is for it's (extreme) laxative properties. I remember a particular day in the first week that I had to leg it to a bathroom five times in an hour and a half. As a result of this I had zero energy and I was always bloated. The only way I describe these bathroom visits would be: food poisoning on steroids. I'm pretty sure I can guarantee that my poor, poor colon is beyond clean now.
As much as I would adore to be over the moon or sunshine and rainbows about this product... I just can't! Today has been my first day off of the stuff and I'm still dealing with side effects. If a rigorous colon cleanse is what you're looking for/into I highly recommend this! Who knows, maybe it could work better for you than it did for me.
Have you ever tried ant sort of detox?
