A popular diet tea, Hoodia green tea, is a combination of native South African plant Hoodia Gordonii (similar to a cactus) and green tea.
Hoodia is a natural appetite suppressant; it stops you from getting hungry!
One of its ingredients, ‘P57’, has the same effect on our brain as glucose: it sends a false signal to the brain, saying: “STOMACH IS FULL”, suppressing hunger cravings.
Combine this with green tea – known to boost metabolism, increase body fat oxidation, and reduce waist circumference – and you have a unbeatable formula to lose weight…..
This match made in heaven unfortunately comes with a few side effects which you definitely need to be aware of in order to live happily ever after.
Taking too much of the supplement may lead to insomnia, dizziness, headaches, diarrhea, irregular heartbeats, vomiting, and even physical problems.
Stay AWAY from these laxative diet teas in your fight against the pounds as much as possible.
