Bootea | Introduction to the Bootea Detox

Dinos Beauty Diary - Bootea

Howdy guys!

Recently I've been seeing quite a lot of people mention 'Bootea' on twitter. Curious, I researched into it and was immediately intrigued. The tea boasts to be full of all natural ingredients aimed to help with weight loss and support a healthy lifestyle.
Here I must admit, I am ridiculous when it comes to healthy eating. Most of the time I just eat what I want whenever I'm hungry, without thinking about it. I don't know how I managed for so long, but I started to notice weight creeping on. Don't get me wrong, it never got too out of hand, and people claimed they hadn't noticed. But it got to the point where I knew I couldn't keep on the way I was going as I felt uncomfortable with the way I was, and if I wanted to keep a decent weight and be healthy I knew it had to stop. Since moving home from University I've started to become more healthy with what I eat and going to the gym regularly, but I figured it couldn't hurt to give the Bootea Teatox a try!

I went for the 28 day Teatox, as there was a special offer on on the website and I got to use a 20% off discount I'd found too, so it worked out rather cheap. The teatox comes in two parts: a 'daytime detox' and a 'bedtime cleanse'.

Dinos Beauty Diary - Bootea Daytime Detox

Bootea 'Daytime Detox'
Drink me every morning upon rising. It's no biggie if you forget just drink me when you get a chance.

Ingredients: Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger Root, Fennel Seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion Leaf, Ginseng Root, Gotu Kola leaves, Nettle Leaves.

For the daytime detox, it suggests that you have one teabag every morning as it's meant to help wake you up for the day ahead. Sign me up straight away! All kidding aside, I could do with something to help wake me up in the morning (If I have coffee I have to put about 5 spoons of sugar in, and I didn't want to be doing that every morning!), and the daytime bags have a small bit of caffeine in aswell as the ingredients listed above.

My only problem is the fact that you're meant to drink this in the morning - I'm lucky if I see any hours before midday normally! I'm in the process of adjusting my sleeping schedule at the moment, but my bed is just too comfy in the mornings! Anyway, whilst I'm doing this detox/teatox, I fully intend to stick by the eating plan (including breakfast, a concept which for years has been alien to me).

Dinos Beauty Diary - Bootea Bedtime Cleanse

Bootea 'Bedtime Cleanse'
Drink me every other night before bed (starting day 1) for the duration of the teatox. I will most likely induce a laxative effect to naturally cleanse and detoxify your body. The effect of the laxative is usually induced 8 hours after consumption.

Ingredients: Senna Leaves, Peppermint Leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice Root, Burdock Root, Hawthorn Leaves, Valerian Root, Psyllium Seeds.

With the nighttime cleanse, you're meant to have one every other night as it supposedly brings on a laxative effect (sorry for those of you who don't really want to hear about this, I'm keeping it brief!). Slightly concerned about this, but I'm sure it'll be fine! I am excited to see if I can taste the peppermint though!

Hopefully this will bring about some results in the next month! Obviously this is intended for use alongside a calorie restricted diet (which I'm going to try my hardest to stick to - I'll keep you posted!) and I also intend on going to the gym 5 days a week like I normally do, but increasing the workouts I do there. So keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'll be doing weekly posts to let you know how I'm getting on with it all!

I'm looking forward to your weekly posts on this! I've always been very skeptical about things like this, so will be good to see if you have any results with it!
