There’s a new product out on the market, and everyone’s talking about it. It’s called Fit Tea. It’s organic, fat-burning and good for you – at least, that’s what the product’s website says. Can Fit Tea really be as beneficial to your health as it says? Can it really help you detox and feel better, just by drinking it?
What is Fit Tea?
Fit Tea is an organic tea that contains ingredients like pomegranate, ginger, stevia and honey. For a minimum of $25.00 you can purchase a package of the loose leaf tea to reap its many promised health benefits, everything from increased energy to a metabolism boost. This tea is also gluten-free, dairy-free and non-GMO.
That all sounds great, right? Perhaps it is. Tea is good for you. The question is, can it really make you healthier? Is detoxing with Fit Tea really necessary?
What Fit Tea can and can’t do
Drinking Fit Tea every day will not hurt you. In fact, there are some health benefits to drinking tea. Tea contains antioxidants, which in very simple terms protect us from the elements and keep our bodies from breaking down. There is also more caffeine in tea than coffee. It may contribute to weight loss, but that effect could depend on the person.
Fit Tea may be good for you, but it isn’t going to produce big changes in a day, and it isn’t going to solve all your problems. Keep in mind that not all health advice, especially when it comes to weight loss and products that promise health benefits, can be applied to everyone. Everyone’s body is different and responds differently to different diet and exercise regimens.
Fit Tea claims to be able to give you more energy, boost your immune system and metabolism and burn fat. Some studies have tried to explain how this might work. However, on average you might only burn 100 additional calories at rest per day by drinking tea. Tea may help suppress appetite, but this could also be because drinking tea could end up replacing a snack high in fat and sugar.
How to use Fit Tea as part of a healthy lifestyle
Fit Tea is sold in different quantities based on how many days you want to use it to “detox.” What does that really mean, though? Sure, you might get plenty of health benefits from drinking tea, but there’s something you should know about detoxing: there is no evidence that it’s necessary. Your body does a pretty good job of keeping toxins at bay, professionals promise. Drinking tea won’t benefit you that way, but that doesn’t mean it still can’t in other ways.
You can still incorporate Fit Tea into a moderate diet and exercise routine to optimize your health. Drinking tea in the afternoon instead of reaching for a high-calorie snack, for example, can help you cut down on empty calories and curb cravings for excessive junk food.
Drinking tea might also be able to give you more energy, at least temporarily, simply because it naturally contains caffeine. Replace that specialty coffee drink with more calories than you eat in an entire meal with a mug of Fit Tea for even more energy from caffeine without the added fat, sugar and calories.
There is nothing wrong with Fit Tea. It probably tastes great! Just keep in mind that the hype almost never delivers its promised results. Just because it’s good for you doesn’t mean it can perform miracles.
