What is Weight Loss Tea?

Weight loss teas are typically sold as a blend of tea and herbs intended to assist with weight loss by enhancing fat burning, increasing metabolism and suppressing appetite. Some varieties are also marketed as “detox teas” or “fit teas,” with claims they increase energy and cleanse your body of toxins.

What’s the Problem?

Despite their purported benefits, weight loss teas are not a science-based way to lose weight. At best, they may lead to more trips to the bathroom. At worst, they can do serious harm.

What are Catechins?

Recently, scientists have been interested in appetite-regulating chemicals called catechins which are commonly found in green and oolong tea varieties. Studies have found that drinking catechin-rich green tea can help burn more fat. However, these findings should be taken with caution, as the studies supporting these claims tend to be small, the effects minimal, and the results not conclusive.

Weight-Loss Washout

Though detoxification for weight loss is done many different ways, it typically involves prolonged fasting and “cleansing” the body of toxins through various methods. However, research specifically focused on weight-loss teas is hard to come by.

“The evidence is very limited to support that fact that a tea – however you would define the detoxification process – is really going to lead to substantial or significant weight loss,” said Cassie Vanderwall, a registered dietitian in the department of clinical nutrition at UW Health in Wisconsin. “I have yet to come across a tea that can do that.”
