Ballerina Green Tea: Weight Loss With Side Effects!


ballerina-green-teaBallerina Green Tea is a very popular tea brand among dieters in their weight loss challenge. Ballerina’s green teas, blended with natural herbs, are based on a formula from the old Chinese book ‘Detailed Outlines on Chinese Herbs’, written by Lee Se-Zhen.

Although Ballerina Dieter’s Tea might help in your fight against the extra pounds be aware of the side effects before running to the stores to buy it straight away. Always consult your doctor before use.

Side effects

Although an interesting way to lose weight, Ballerina diet tea contains herbal ingredients such as Senna and Chinese Mallow (Malva verticillata) which have a laxative effect when taken in excess possibly leading to dizziness, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting.

Stay clear of the laxatives as a way to lose weight as much as possible. Read more about losing weight with Chinese diet teas.
