About Bootea

Bootea is a UK-based company that sells 100% natural, green tea-based health supplements that are claimed to “promote an active, healthy, and balanced lifestyle.” All Bootea “Teatox” supplements are claimed to be pure, natural, and preservative-free, and to use an intense mix of natural ingredients that can help you achieve your goals and get the figure you want.

If you’ve spent much time online or watching TV lately, you’ve probably noticed that you’re constantly bombarded with ads for one weight loss supplement or another, each claiming to be better than next. Because of this, it can be hard to tell the difference between the ones that are legitimate, and those who are simply out to get your money.

With this in mind, is Bootea a supplement that really can help you reach your weight loss goals, or is it simply hype in a teabag? Keep reading to uncover the facts.

How Bootea Works

As a company, Bootea specializes in green tea-based, all natural health products that are claimed to help you lose weight and feel energized. Regardless of your shape, size, or age, the company claims to focus on promoting a healthy body image and to help their customers feel “Boo-Tea-ful.”

With this in mind, Bootea offers 7 products:

  • Daytime Tea – Part I of the “Teatox,” this product is claimed to help regulate blood sugar levels, promote better sleep, and to improve digestion. Ingredients include: Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves, and Nettle leaves.
  • Bedtime Cleanse Tea – Part II of the “Teatox,” these teas are claimed to induce a laxative effect that removes toxins from your stomach and digestive tract. Ingredients include: Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian root, and Psyllium seeds.
  • 14 & 18-Day Teatox – Includes a 14 (or 28)-day supply of loose leaf tea, as well as 7 (or 14) days worth of Bedtime Cleanse.
  • Bootea Shake – A mixed berry-flavored drink that is claimed to help you lose weight by making you feel fuller and providing much-needed vitamins. Ingredients include: Glucomannan (similar to Skinny Fiber and Lipozene), green tea, and a vitamin B mix.
  • Bootea Fitness Plan – An e-book that claims to provide step-by-step instructions on how to get the body you’ve always wanted, regardless of whether you’re a beginner or a pro.
  • Bootea Flexible Eating Program – Claims to provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes that can help the detoxification process work more effectively, while also maximizing weight loss.

According to Bootea, their supplements are safe for men and women over the age of 16, and do not cause side effects, other than minor cramping and more frequent visits to the bathroom.

Should You Buy Bootea if You’re Looking to Cleanse Your Body or Lose Weight?

According to the Bootea website, healthy eating is a lifestyle, and not a short-term fix. But even if you already have these healthy habits in place, can Bootea supplements provide you with any benefits? Perhaps, but note the following:

The Necessity of Cleansing

According to WebMD, your liver and bacteria in your colon are capable of adequately detoxifying your body, in conjunction with natural processes associated with your colon. However, even if one or more of these systems were impaired, there is insufficient medical evidence showing that cleanses (herbal or otherwise) provide any detoxification benefits. However, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect that Bootea’s laxative effects might help decrease stomach bloating (e.g. your belly “pooch”).

Ingredient & Side Effects

Although Bootea’s supplements include ingredients that appear to be generally safe, keep in mind that their Daytime Tea includes a number of stimulants, such as caffeine and yerba mate, although the company claims that the overall percentage of stimulants is very low. However, you may want to avoid these supplements if you’re sensitive to stimulants.

On top of this, Bootea claims that the ingredients in Daytime Tea may also cause dehydration, so it’s important that you remember to drink plenty of water.

Finally, according to the Bootea website, their cleanses may effect contraceptive pills. Because of this, the company recommends waiting more than 4 hours after the laxative effect occurs before taking contraceptives.

Other Miscellaneous Factors

Last, it should be noted that Bootea’s flexible Eating Plan is meat-free. However, the company claims that you can add small portions of very lean meat to the Plan, although this may negate some of the detoxification benefits it provides.

Also, while natural supplements such as Bootea may help give you a boost, the company explicitly mentions that it should be supplemented with regular exercise and a healthy diet.

Bottom line:

Overall, while Bootea supplements will certainly work better for some individuals than others, it’s important to note that most of the benefits will probably be derived from the laxative effective, which might make your belly look more trim. Outside of this however, there is little medical evidence showing that you need to undergo cleanses in the first place, or that they measurably detox your body in any way.

    Great While It Lasted

    I have ordered Bootea for over a year now. While I love the tea, my one star rating is due to my last experience with the company. Black Friday I took advantage of ordering 10 packs of the night time tea at 40% off. The tea individually is expensive, so I was pretty excited about the discount.

    Two days after ordering, I received an email stating my order was ready to be shipped. This was 7 weeks ago. After multiple rounds of emails with customer service I finally, after 4 weeks, received a package from Bootea with only 1 out of the 10 bags I ordered. They did an "investigation", blamed the courier, and the last email on January 5th said my order would be fulfilled within the week. Then, nothing.

    I ended with having to make a claim through PayPal, to which they never responded to, in order to successfully get my money back.

    What makes the situation frustrating are the promotional emails I have received asking if I would like to order more product. The product is in stock. I am under the impression they didn't want to send out product that was discounted. After spending $531.17 in the last six months with this company, I have ultimately decided to take my business elsewhere.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not suitable for anyone with allergies

    • UK,
    • Oct 22, 2015

    I purchased BooTea to lose some weight. It was ok for first two days then it started to make me sick and cause severe pains in my stomach. I am unable to complete my 14 day Bootea due to it making me ill and causing severe cramps.

    It is just another name for a laxative tea. I would not recommend this to anyone. I have taken so many novelty weight loss products and now I have damaged my liver. This product is definitely not suitable for anyone with kidney and liver problems or IBS. It will make your symptoms worse. Join a gym & eat better instead of novelty weight loss products.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam

    • Finand,
    • Aug 7, 2015

    I wanted to give a warning about scam company Bootea. I ordered a pack of teas 22th May for 32 GBP that is about 50 USD. After 2 weeks I received a message:

    "DPD tried to deliver your order to you but we’ve been told that the driver couldn’t access your address as a door code was required. Please respond to us within 24 hours with your full correct address. If the order is returned to us, this will incur a return postage fee."

    I immediately answered them that I do not have door code, the address was correct and everything should have been fine. They answered that they will give me refund but will not refund the posting fees. The posting fees were half of the order amount. I clamed that I wanted refund on the posting fees as well.

    After this they are not answering any of my e-mails. No refund, no answer, they probably blocked my e-mail. Please, be aware of this company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Severe cramping

    • Fort Worth, TX,
    • Jul 22, 2015

    I drank the tea just like I was supposed to. I felt great the first few days and even saw a difference. The last two days of my 14 day teatox, I got severely sick. I begged my mother to take me to the hospital because I was in so much pain. I haven't had the tea in two days and I am still in so much pain. It has been three days of this cramping and if it doesn't clear up by tomorrow, I will be going to the hospital. I have not been able to eat or sleep because of this pain. Do not do this to yourself.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Bootea.

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Jul 12, 2015

    Both day and night tea itself tasted great. Although it didn't really feel like it worked well. The only times I made a trip to the bathroom was my last two days of the fourteen day detox. I exercised daily and ate healthy. I lost no weight nor do I feel any different.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    You can find better products at the grocery store

    • Jun 26, 2015

    I was really excited about this product but read mixed reviews. However, I'm trying anything to lose weight, so I wanted to see for myself.

    The daytime tea did absolutely nothing. If anything, I felt like I had less energy and ate more. It might as well have been water.

    The night one was good. Some people had issues with cramping but I didn't experience any of that. Honestly though, you can get "smooth move" tea from any store (or any tea with Senna) and it works just the same if not much better.

    No reason to pay so much, plus shipping, and get your hopes up when in the end, green tea and smooth move tea would work much better and be much cheaper and more convenient.

    Though it wasn't totally ineffective, it still leaves me with the feeling that I was a bit scammed.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Terrible Product

    • Annapolis, MD,
    • Jun 25, 2015

    I was very excited for this product and to see the before and after affects, however, after not even two days I quit this product. The morning tea was lovely, I felt a jolt in energy although it quickly disappeared. The night tea was extremely inconvenient for me. The laxative effects don't occur until 8 hours after taking. By this time I'd have to be up and getting ready for work. I tried it, and absolutely hated it. It had slow moving affects and left me having to run to the bathroom the entire day. So I found that it simply wasn't practical and stopped.

    The night I was supposed to take the tea again (but didn't) I was at work and started experiencing severe stomach pain and nausea. I begged my boss to let me go home, where I repeatedly threw up. I've been home for days, and am still feeling sick. I'm scheduled for a doctors visit tomorrow.

    This product is terrible, and will more than likely mess up your digestive system. So trust me, just eat healthier and go to the gym.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Takes a full month to arrive to the U.S and Canada

    • Canada,
    • Jun 8, 2015

    Bootea claims they will deliver the tea within 1-3 business days to Canada/US but it’s been almost a month and I still haven’t received it! They claimed it was held up by customs but I still don’t think it’s acceptable to take a full month. I was hoping to start the tea four weeks before my vacation and now if I’m lucky, I'll have a few days. They're definitely NOT RELIABLE. I would order a tea from a different company now.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Honestly dreadful

    • UK,
    • Jun 6, 2015

    Sorry to say the tea was one of the worst things ever. Firstly, it messed up my cycle leaving my body messed up and nasty. There are no weight loss benefits that come with this tea. After 12 days, I had to stop my 28-day Teatox as I was throwing up and feeling awfully sick. You should save your money and buy a gym membership because this tea is awful! They tasted revolting as well, was a struggle to bring myself to drink the night time one.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
