Review: Urban Remedy Diet Tea via Britt's Blurbs

When Urban Remedy reached out to me a few weeks ago to try out their 14-Day Herbal Slimming Diet Tea I was a bit hesitant. To be honest, anything labeled “diet tea” sounds like a scam to me. But after doing my research and learning the tea is an all natural blend of peppermint and ginger, using Traditional Chinese Medicine Principles, I decided to give it a try. They offer the tea in a 14-Day program or 28-day program. 

The key to this slimming tea is to brew and drink it 30-minutes before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The tea helps speed up your metabolism, suppress your appetite, strengthen digestion and supports healthy energy levels due to the natural effects of peppermint and ginger.

The first week I tried this tea I felt great. I followed the instructions rigidly and brewed the tea 30 minutes before each meal. My IBS didn’t flare up as much after meals and by the end of the week I felt less bloated. Things were really moving let’s just say! I also kept some in my desk drawer at work and some in my cabinet at home to make sure I always had access to it.

The second week it was a bit harder for me to follow through with the completion of the program due to traveling. Being so busy it’s often difficult to remember to brew and drink a glass of tea before each meal, especially when you’re on the go. When I did remember, it’d often be as I was eating, so I would brew it to enjoy along with my meal. Although that may have defeated the effect of it suppressing my appetite, I do believe that it still helped with my digestion of the meal and reducing my IBS flare-ups.

Review: Urban Remedy Diet Tea | Britt's Blurbs

Although it was hard for me to keep up with my second week, I’m so glad there are holistic teas on the market that aim to help those looking to lose some bloat. I’m so sick of seeing all of the products on the market filled with chemicals that people take to help them slim down. This herbal slimming tea is an all-natural option that helps you boost your metabolism without any harmful side-effects.

It is hard for someone so busy to follow this program for every single meal but I believe if you have a deadline date for a wedding, vacation, photos, etc. approaching that you want to naturally lose bloat for you’ll be able to stay more focused to make sure you drink a glass 30 minutes before each meal.
