Is the Red Tea Detox a Scam? Make the right choice before buying

In the twenty-first century, health and wellbeing are two major buzzwords. There’s a vast audience out there eager to try new detox methods, and a thriving industry happy to sell them a miracle package that promises the world. The Red Tea Detox program falls into the second category, with claims that a pound a day/14 pounds in 14 days are realistic losses simply from drinking this magic tea.

Is this all a clever scam?

The official website has the drink’s creator telling an unlikely sounding story of how she came across this tea in the first place. Elizabeth Swann Miller is a naturopath and author of several other e-books on the healthy eating/detoxing theme. She claims that while walking through African bushland, she was bitten by a dangerous snake, and helped to recovery by locals, including a shaman who administered the Red Tea. She recovered and also lost a lot of weight, then felt compelled to share this discovery with the world.

Of course, this could be true, but other evidence has been found which suggests the tea, which contains five easy to find ingredients, was actually developed over a period of five years and has no original connection to Africa. Until now there has been no word that the snake story was about publicity, which casts a shadow on everything else said about the product. Read more about this story here:


What you get for your cash

Around $40 will bag you (in digital form) the ‘secret’ recipe – you buy the ingredients, a 14-day meal plan, information on how it works, and a guide to exercising.

The big attraction, of course, is the tea recipe. It definitely contains a chemical called aspalathin, which reduces stress and encourages good sleep, along with herbs which are said to help the brain produce noradrenaline, and boost fat loss. Other benefits include a reduced appetite, so you naturally eat less.

It’s unrealistic and unhealthy

Losing weight as fast as this promises you can would be unhealthy, and as few people could do it even if they starved themselves completely it is also likely to crush confidence.

The good points of the Red Tea Detox program

There is a 60-day money back guarantee, although the criteria for actually claiming this is not known. It tastes okay too, according to independent testers, which is something.

Is it worth a try?

There are plenty of positive reviews around, although it is impossible to verify how many are real. Overall though the evidence from independent reviewers of either feeling very ill, or feeling no change in appetite make the endless upselling that plagues users after they sign up.  The evidence is frankly ludicrous claims that this tea can not just melt fat away at supersonic speed, but that it can also stop you from developing life-threatening conditions such as cancer make this a detox method to avoid.
