One popular weight loss supplements available in the market today take the form of tea. Stores all over sell slimming tea, dieter’s tea and others but all of them are actually the same. They may appear to be effective, but what they don’t tell you is the side effects.
One of the effects of drinking dieter’s tea is frequent bowel movement. This gives people the feeling of body cleansing. You may get toxins out of their body but it isn’t the only thing that slimming tea does to the body.
Slimming tea contains herbs which are natural laxatives. These include aloe, senna, rhubarb root, cascara, buckthorn and castor oil. These are products which are derived from plants and are used since the ancient times because of their potency in treating constipation and to inducing bowel movement.
Cascara, castor oil and senna are substances which are recognized as laxatives available over the counter and are also regulated as drugs. Scientific studies show that diarrhoea induced by laxatives does not absorb significant amounts of calories taken in the body.
The reason for this is that laxatives do not act on the small intestines where most of the calories are absorbed. Instead, they work on the large intestines. If taken in large amounts for a long time, it can affect fat absorption of the body. This may lead to greasy diarrhoea and loss of weight. Abuse of laxatives is common practice among people who suffer from bulimia and anorexia nervosa.
While weight loss can be guaranteed by overdosing on laxatives, it may also cause permanent damage to the gastrointestinal tract and the weakening and softening of the bones. Those with eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia nervosa drink dieter’s tea because they work fast and produce watery stool and having loose consistency.
The labelling of slimming teas in the market today can be misleading. For instance, they commonly refer to the laxative qualities as “natural bowel cleansing properties” and not specifically use the word “laxative”. Some even use the term “low-calorie” on their labelling. These products in fact, contain essentially no calories nor nutrients whatsoever, unless of course, if they are sweetened!
Adverse effects of misusing laxatives in the form of slimming tea include, nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhoea, fainting, rectal bleeding, electrolyte disorder and dehydration as well as injury and worse, death. The excess use of stimulant laxatives can cause the colon losing its function and It may eventually led to surgery removing the colon altogether.
Just tell yourself you can do it!

of us know we need to move around much more, but a recent survey by a leading
slimming magazine has found that we spend 15 hours per day sitting down. The
study found that a typical adult spends 5 hours a day sat behind a desk and in

to this that the average adult sleeps for 7 hours it soon adds up.

ways to introduce it into even the busiest of lifestyles. Walking up the stairs
