We're not totally sold on Cho-Yung Tea as a miracle way to lose weight, but some people swear by it, and it's unlikely to do any harm--after all, scientists have been touting the health benefits of green tea for years. Green tea is packed with antioxidants, and this particular mix appears to be better than other slimming teas on the market.
Cho-Yung tea's website cites three recent studies which suggest green tea is associated with weight loss, but we do take these with a grain of salt, as they don't specifically deal with this particular tea formulation. Scientists ar the South China Institute of Botany published a study in the Journal of Medicinal Food on the metabolic benefits of catechin compounds found in tea, and noted green tea extract was associated with weight loss by assisting the body to burn off excess calories. The manufacturers claim that typical users can lose around 5-7 pounds per month for doing little more than drinking tea.
This herbal weight loss tea relies on ancient Chinese medicinal traditions and claims to help you lose weight in several ways. It stimulates digestion, reduces bloating, and supports the heart, spleen, and kidney, and as mentioned, the catechins in the tea are supposed to aid in burning fat calories as well. The manufacturers note Cho-Yung is different from normal green tea in that its ingredients are synergistically balanced, and include things like lotus leaf for digestion, Alisma to reduce bloating, Chinese hawthorn to aid digestion, and Cassia seeds to support the heart, spleen, and kidney.
You drink the tea twice a day, but the manufacturers also recommend you eat small portions of healthy food like fish, fresh fruit and veg, and limit toxins like alcohol, as well a engaging in moderate exercise.
Cho-Yung is a UK-based company which offers information, advice, and support to slimmers seven days a week, from 11:30AM to 11:30PM. Their premium tea is from a genuine source approved by the Health Ministry of the People's Republic of China.
The use of this product is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women or for children under 12.
Side Effects: There are no major side effects we're aware of from this natural tea product. However, a minority of users have suffered from indigestion and bloating.
Prices: To order, you first try a free trial, and will be shipped Cho-Yung tea at the cost of postage and packing only (£1.99). If you don't like the product or don't lose weight, you can cancel for a money back guarantee. If not, you will be charged the balance of £38.00 for the tea, and thereafter £40.00 per month for a month's supply of the weight loss tea. This is an autoship programme--a practice we don't approve of, so be aware of it from the outset--either cancel quick if it's not working for you or be aware that you will be charged and more product will come if you do nothing.
If you really like the product, then we suggest buying three months worth at once, then you get a month free (a whopping one-third off!)
Again, while we're not totally sold on this product--we don't think it can hurt, and the fact that they have a 14-day money back guarantee (minus £1.99 postage and packing ) means giving it a whirl is easy enough.
