Hi, I'm in France and I drink the tea with malva verticella that i'm obliged to buy on internet for 35 euros the 30 bags. I drink it for 15 days under the name bslim tea. Could you please tell me the exact name in USA and the price so that I could ask some friends who goe in usa to buy it for me ?
I drink it for hard constipation due to my med for bipolar disease. Thanks in advance. my email is [email protected]
The tea is cheap. I have only seen it in asian markets. Yes it is available at asian markets in the US, but you could get it at most any asian market abroad.

My wife drinks the Nu-Slim Tea every night. It is Three Leaves Brand "regular strength Dieters'" It is called Dieters', but my wife takes it as a laxative for constipation. She says it is the only thing that works. The directions are on the box in english. What they do not tell you is that you should expect a result in 6-8 hours. I have taken the tea a few times, and because it is always new to my system I have a painful and profound response(about 7 hours later). My wife is very used to it (drinking it every night) and has no pain. It works best taken right before bed and experiencing the result in about 7 hours. When I use this product I will only drink it on the weekend, and if I was going to drink it during the work week; I would drink it and go to bed early and plan on getting up a couple hours earlier the next day. My wife is used to the tea and drinks it every night before bed and has no issues when getting ready for work the next day. The only ingredient listed on the box is Malva Verticellata.

I have been using Slim Tea on and off for a couple of years, I have MS and get very constipated, it doesnt matter what I eat, I have a fairly high fibre diet but does nothing exept create gas in my stomach, so I cut down on the fibre, just a bit and have slim tea most nights and the next day, I have no trouble voiding. I feel lighter as I am not bloated and my system is emptied. I really dont care if it is dependent, the feeling of emptiness in my belly is worth it. Good to hear other opinions.

the cramps are caused by the cleansing process. The faint feelings and other side effects are caused by the cleansing process. Your body goes through an adverse effect. Its perfectly safe.

I drank this tea and within 5 hours had relief of severe constipation and was no longer bloated. I had more energy no gas and felt better then I had in weeks. I recommend this tea to anyone feeling bloated or constipated or if you want to drop a pant size fast! It really works! Great product to use twice a week!

Yes! If you are trying to lose weight though I'd try to cut out some things nut you will notice a big difference the first time you use it! Plan to be on the toilet or around it a good 2 hours. It's well worth it!

I got this tea from my sister and didn't know that it made you go to the bathroom sooo fast. It only took about 2o min. and it flushed me out!!! I continue to poop for atleast a couple of hrs after that. At the time she and i did'nt know that this tea was for weight loss and constipation. Well let me tell you if you con.take this, you WILL get on pluged.Also i have taken this a few times after, when i feel like i'm side effects other then getting dehidrated, so i drink lots of water and gadurade.

I tried this team for the first time a few days ago after hearing of it from a friend. She lost a lot of weight using it with very little effort. First night it took about 8 hours to kick in and seemed to work well with very little pain. Last night I was around the toilet for longer than before with some cramping. Tonight it worked in 4 hours and I also began vomiting and feeling nauseous. Should I discontinue use? Or is this the 'cleansing process' taking place as mentioned above?

I purchased the extra strength dieters tea about 1 month ago. It really does clear the intestines.
I find that one should not drink alcoholic drinks while using this product. It seems to cause abdominal cramps and problems passing stool.
It's best to keep a general consumption of vegetables, fruits, proteins and fiber. I don't take any other drugs so there is not conflict or interactions.
I tried it 2 times as well, the kind with ginseng, and had abdominal
problems. Constant acid stomach, which was not a problem for me in the past, seemed to exacerbate my mild lactose intolerance, and alcohol consumption, specially beer (yeast) really made my stomach upset. I tried it about 2 months ago and before that 2 or 3 years ago, pretty much the same problems. Symptoms lasted for a couple of months, still have them but have been eating lots of garlic, and kimchee, which is my cure all

I've been using 3 ballerinas and it works great for me. For first time users, I recommend starting your first week with the 'regular' strength before taking the 'extra strength'. I have taken these kind of 'dieters' tea in the past and therefore I know that it will get you going back and forth to the bathroom, which is expected. I also do not recommend taking it everyday for you will be immunized from its effect after weeks of use. Try the dieters tea every other day and then lemon cleanse on the days you're not taking it. I also recommend using the extra strength during weekends when you will be home most of the time. Trust me I have lost 30lbs and counting, and keeps me regular. I don't exercise regularly but it does maintain my weight ...

You don't need the tea, you need a boyfriend who loves & supports you the way you are xo

I purchased in Sydney Australia from a Chinese massage establishment under the name nutri-leaf slimming tea. First day only took one cup late morning, which I'd made strong (probably let it seep for 15mins) & experienced very strong cramps & a clean out from 7-11pm that night. Stupidly and as stomach can be a little dodgy anyway I thought I'd eaten something that disagreed with me. The following day I took as directed (2 cups daily), one mid morning & the other after dinner & was ok until about 7:30pm and then it was all on until 11:30pm when I finally got some rest until I awoke again at 4am with the magic continuing on & off until about 9am. Stomach etc is still feeling a little unsettled so will wait until after lunch to consume a much weaker brew to see if this decreases the affect as it was not pleasant at all!
