The Bedtime Cleanse acts as a colon cleanser, cleansing and detoxifying the body overnight.
The Bootea Ingredients
The Daytime Detox teabags contain ingredients including:
Chinese Oolong Tea- Oolong is so favoured by the Chinese and around the world for its natural weight loss properties due to its high amount of antioxidants that stimulate fat burning by raising the metabolism and blocks the enzyme that breaks down dietary fat so it can be digested.
Mate Leaves (aka Yerba Mate) is a plant and its leaves are extracted to make a beverage similar to tea. Popular in countries such as Brazil and Argentina, mate is used for its high caffeine content.
Research has shown how drinking Yerba Mate three times a day can help to lower levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL).
Yerba Mate is believed to be effective in weight loss when combined with Guarana or Damiana.
Ginseng Root – Ginseng Root is used for its therapeutic benefits to health. It helps to boost the immune system – helping to prevent colds and flu and helps to relieve stress. Its additional uses include treating diabetes and erectile dysfunction. There are several types of Ginseng including asian ginseng and siberian ginseng. As ginseng has stimulating properties, ginseng can help to increase the metabolism, helping with weight loss.
Gotu Kola leaves – Gotu Kola is a herb used in traditional ayuverdic and chinese medicine and used include treating UTI (urinary tract infection), shingles, anxiety, depression, jaundice, tonsillitis and for wound healing.
Gotu Kola aids weight loss by promoting increased blood circulation, increased energy and helps to balance blood sugar.
The Bedtime Cleanse teabags contain;
Valerian root – Valerian root is a flowering plant native to both Asia and Europe. It is commonly used to treat insomnia and anxiety for its sedating and hypnotic properties.
Psyllium seeds – Pysllium seeds are used to treat constipation. They work by increasing the bulk in the stool that encourages the intestines to move and increases the amount of water in the stool so that it is softer and more comfortable to pass.
Senna leaves – Senna is a shrub found in countries such as Africa and India. The leaves and sometimes the fruit have been used as a natural treatment for constipation.
Fenugreek seeds – Fenugreek seeds are traditionally used as a food seasoning in Egypt and the Middle East. They are often used in many health supplements including weight loss supplements as they help to lower blood sugar after eating a meal. Studies show that Fenugreek may offer some benefit and helping to raise the levels of HDL (good cholesterol) in the body.
And its rich in fibre which makes it an ideal treatment for constipation.

Positive Customer Reviews:
It has an all natural formulation, suitable for both men and women and makes an excellent alternative to pills especially those who enjoy drinking Green and other herbal teas. It does contain some very effective ingredients that are clinically proven to aid weight loss and have some other benefits to overall health.
However, with Bootea there is no money back guarantee offered by the manufacturers. So if Bootea doesn’t work for you, you won’t get your money back.
The more serious disadvantages are that while the ingredients are natural, they won’t suit all individuals particularly due to its caffeine content which in those who are sensitive to its effects could suffer from irregular heart beat or the jitters as a result.
There are a few health concerns with a few of the ingredients;
Yerba Mate is said to contain PAH’s (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) which are known to be carcinogenic. While for healthy adults yerba won’t cause any adverse effects but for those who consume large amounts over a prolonged period, it can increase the risks of mouth cancer, lung and esophagus cancer.*Source- Mayo Clinic
Its not known how much yerba is in Bootea, or if that could cause harmful effects over time but it is something to be aware of.
Gotu Kola can cause drowsiness, which is a particular concern for those who drive or who operate machinery on a regular basis. It can also cause itching and an allergic reaction in some users and can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight.* Source – Drugs.com
Fenugreek can cause many side effects that include, stomach upset, gas/wind, bloating, strange smell in urine, wheezing, facial swelling and nasal congestion. It can cause low blood sugar which in people with diabetes this can be harmful. Its safety is not properly established and it is possibly safe when used for medicinal purpose when used up to 6 months *Source.WEB MD
Negative Customer Reviews
One user actually fell pregnant after it affected the contraceptive pill:
Some users may not appreciate the effects of The Bedtime Cleanse which can include a laxative effect and cramping as part of the detox.
Bootea is overall, a good product. A lot of users use it and have great results without any side effects whatsoever. But for the unlucky few, it does very little.
While the ingredients are considered to be generally safe, there is a chance for unpleasant and potentially serious side effects in some users.
When there are alternatives that offer better value for money and without the possibility of unwanted effects, we advise you have a look at some of the other weight loss teas available before making a decision about whether Bootea is right for you.
