Does Fit Tea Work?
Fit tea is one amongst many other professing detox tea swarming the market today. Yes, it may have an impressive ingredient profile but most of the rest also have such profiles so how do we know which is genuine.

- Extract of Garcinia Cambogia: Another name for this is Malabar tamarind which contains hydroxy citric acid. This has claimed to be a fat burner, but there is no significant supporting evidence to this effect.
- Pomegranate: Pomegranate is made up of chemicals that act as antioxidants and help in fighting cancer and atherosclerosis. But it is unknown if the liquid form of pomegranate is effective in such a manner.
- Organic rooibos: Here is a tea from Africa that means red bush. It has no caffeine and valuable antioxidants that protect against diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Clinical Studies On Fit Tea
As far as we know, there are no independent studies on Fit Tea in particular. There is a brief write up on company-sponsored research on this Fit Tea. If there are publications about this in any reputable journal it will be better but in the absence of that other research is junk.
Well here is how the sponsored research goes. There were fifty participants used in this study, they were between the ages of eighteen and sixty years. That non-experimental research aimed at looking at how to fit tea was effective in aiding weight loss and increasing concentrating levels, decreasing appetite, and increasing energy levels.
The participants were physically examined on their height, weight, level of thyroid-stimulating hormones, complete blood count, lipid and metabolic levels, body composition.
The result of the study showed that fifty percent (twenty-five) of the participants lost 0.23kg of weight within fourteen days and sixty percent (thirty-three) lost 0.91kg within the twenty-eight-day period. Twenty-five of the thirty-three participants lost 1.36kg and the other fourteen lost 2.26kg by the time the study ended.
The study also found that 43 of the 50 participants experienced increased levels of energy. forty-two of the fifty also increased levels of concentration and forty-seven participants experienced decreased appetite.
12 participants of this study complained of the following side effects; bloating, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, vomiting, nausea, headache, diarrhea, and others undefined.
However, we want to emphasize that these studies have several limitations. First, it had no control group for result comparison. While the researchers reported weight loss amongst the participants we do not know how this outcome would compare to gender and age-related control groups. Second, it was a limited lack of accountability for the activity and exercise level. We were not told if the study controlled levels of participants’ activities. Other limitations include lack of accountability for diet, most of its participants were females, wide age gap, no body weight changes explanation, no mentioned results on the blood biomarker, and unclear result images on the page.
Does fit tea work? With the information gathered we may not be able to say an absolute yes or an absolute no as several people may have seen some positive results from using this tea.
