Ever wonder about those boxes of herbal slimming teas next to the Jasmine and Green teas at the oriental markets? Big Lots had various flavors, so I picked up a box of the orange spice to sate my curiosity. The ingredients include senna and malva leaves, panax ginseng, stevia leaves, natural orange flavor, and benzyl benzoate. The claim is that this natural blend of traditional herbs will increase your metabolic activity and cleanse your system…without caffeine!
A bit of internet research yielded information that the main ingredient is a laxative.
Fun. Fun. Sick. sick.
Stevia would be interesting to know more about, if you are interested in sugar alternatives, though.
