Below is from the Skinny Fox Detox Website.

 Benefits of Active Ingredients

Yerba Mate:

Popular in South America, yerba mate tea is chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins and can help you lose fat. It contains the fat-fighting compound mateine, which gives you a metabolism and energy boost. Known as a cravings-killer, it saves you from consuming empty calories you’d normally reach for. Additionally, yerba mate does not produce the caffeine-related crashes that some people experience with coffee and can give you 3-4 hours of very stable, clean energy.

Dao Ren Green Tea:

Green tea provides a number of potent antioxidants that can benefit your body in many ways. It’s rich in a phytonutrient called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, and it has the ability to stimulate your body’s metabolism and speed up weight loss. Together with the caffeine that is found in green tea, EGCG works to stimulate the central nervous system and releases fat into the blood stream, so that the body can use the fat as fuel. This process of using fat as fuel is known as thermogenesis, and it involves the production of extra energy, the shedding of excess water and the burning of body fat. Caffeine can cause thermogenesis by itself, but it is much more effective when it is combined with EGCG and other substances in green tea. EGCG also increases the hormone CCK, which is responsible for creating the feeling of satiation, helping to curb your appetite. This is beneficial, because when we overeat, specifically, when we over consume sugar and fat, this excess is transformed into body fat storage. Green tea can counter the threat of excess triglyceride (broken down sugar and fat) because it has a high amount of polyphenols. Polyphenols function to activate a certain enzyme in the body, and this enzyme will dissolve the excess triglyceride. This means that the fat content in your body will be reduced if you are drinking green tea on a regular basis.

Oolong Tea:

The Linus Pauling Institute cites a study in which 35 overweight men were given either oolong tea or a mixture of oolong tea and green tea for a period of 12 weeks. At the end of the study, the men who drank the mixture had reduced their body weight, waist circumference, body mass index and amount of subcutaneous fat significantly more than the men who drank plain oolong tea. Oolong tea boosts metabolism, helping you burn fat faster. Its unique catechin (an antioxidant) and caffeine combination ignites your body’s fat-burning furnace and raises your metabolism for up to 2 hours after drinking it. Oolong tea also contains polyphenols that help block fat-building enzymes. Studies have shown that drinking oolong tea has led to sustained weight loss and a smaller waist size. Be careful not to overload your tea with sugar, which will negate the benefits.

Ginseng Root:

Ginseng can accelerate weight loss in two ways. First off, it can rev up your sluggish metabolism. With a faster metabolic rate, you can eat the same amount of food but have less excess calories to be converted into fat. Aside from that, ginseng is a fantastic energy booster that makes you feel more vigorous and helps you maintain physical stamina during a strenuous workout. Accordingly, you will be able to participate in a more active exercise routine for a longer period of time. In a study reported in Phytotherapy Research Journal, researchers investigated a red ginseng constituent, ginsenoside Rg3, focusing on its ability to inhibit differentiation of the cells that store energy as fat. The findings showed that this ginsenoside effectively inhibited this differentiation, making cells less able to complete the fat storage process!

Ginger Root:

Ginger works as an anti-inflammatory agent blocking prostagladins – the chemical messengers that cause a slight swelling in the brain. Ginger tea reduces inflammation in about the same amount of time as it would take an aspirin to work. Drink a cup at the onset of your headache to stop pain in its tracks. This is vital in reducing stress, since stress in a huge culprit in weight gain. Previous research has shown that ginger reduces inflammation and promotes glucose sensitivity, two factors associated with healthy weight. It has even been shown to boost serotonin levels, the neurotransmitter associated with appetite control.

My experience:

I first discovered this tea on instagram actually and read lot of people’s success stories. I am an avid tea drinker and loved that the morning tea was a loose leaf tea. I also loved that the teas were full of my favorite ingredients and that their detox wasn’t about starving yourself but it was really all about clean eating, cuting out the junk, cleansing your body, boosting your metabolism, and reducing bloating. It was so easy. You just drink the morning tea in the morning and if you want in the afternoon and then you drink the evening tea at night. My favorite part about drinking the tea for 14 days is that it really made me aware of what I was putting in my body. I am generally a very clean eater but the weeks before I started the detox I was tired and eating a lot of organic processed meals and this detox made me aware again of what I was putting in my body and got me back on track with eating a lot more veggies again and cutting out processed foods, dairy, and so on. My big reveal was the night of my Grand Opening Party and you can see pictures in my previous article. I generally saw the biggest difference in my stomach area. I felt and looked more defined, I had no bloat whatsoever, I felt more cut all over and my clothes fit way better. I wasn’t doing the detox to lose tons of weight so I wasn”t keeping track from a weight loss perspective but I was really doing the cleanse to feel confident and more defined and toned when I wore my body hugging red dress at my party and the tea truly helped me feel good in that dress!

Other bonus’s of the 14 day detox was that I felt more energized. I drank and still drink (I have leftover of the morning tea) in the morning before I teach classes. The tea keeps me full and energized until I’m able to go home after my am classes and make my breakfast blend green smoothie. The night tea was just amazing! I would drink it and go to sleep and then I would wake up and go to the bathroom and feel ready to start the new day. I love the feeling of being consistently cleansed. I also loved the fact that the morning tea is a loose leaf. I suggest getting a tumblr or I purchased an easy to go loose leaf tea cup from crate and barrel. It literally took me 2 minutes to put the tea in my cup and then take it with me to work. The evening tea isn’t loose leaf but uses tea bags and I actually ended up loving that because at night I just want something easy because I’m exhausted from teaching all day and it was so easy to heat up hot water and stick a tea bag in my mug. You drink the night time tea every OTHER night so it’s easy peasy! Honestly I love this company and I love the teas and I love the results! I’m going to purchase the 28 day detox next and also keep both tea to have at home for maintenance. I will probably keep drinking the morning tea every morning because it’s become part of my morning routine at this point.

  1. Hi Tiffany,

    I am so happy you saw great results. Question, were you able to eat clean on this detox or was the tea all you could have?

    Thanks,
