I honestly have nothing to compare this to, I was referred to it by a friend at work, and I honestly had no trouble. It isn't a magic solution to all of your problems; it's an aid to help you stay on track. The night time detox tea is just that, if you're having abdominal pains it's because you're so backed up that your bowels are finally trying to right themselves, and you need to poop. The Metabolic tea tastes great on its own and gives you a little extra energy without the nasty overly caffeinated side effects. The night time tea tastes a little less amazing, but it's still not bad and smells amazing, also does its job. Obviously, you need to keep yourself on track with diet and exercise; this isn't meant to do the job for you.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
