    Has anyone used these? I enquired about them in Holland & Barrett, and apparently they're a laxative.

    I was a bit shocked.

    I'm drinking raspberry tea atm, is this a laxative, also? :confused:

    I have never heard of either green tea or raspberry tea as being a laxative.

    I've used chinese green tea in the past and it really helps with my IBS, when nothing else works in getting things moving, green tea does!

    I've never heard of that before and haven't had a reaction like that from it either to be honest

    Ah so I can drink it without being in fear of running to the bathroom haha

    So, does it do anything to help the weight loss system?

    the green tea i use is from a chinese herb shop and is called a 'slimming tea' (Feiyan tea)
    I started using it after my sister recommended it to me (she has IBS too) and it deffo acts like a laxative. :D
    I havent lost any weight using it though just to clarify! i think you would need to have a good diet alongside it which i never used too!

    I started drinking green tea months ago as I was told it helps weight loss. I don't think it helped at all but I still drink it as I got used to the taste and it's helped me cut down on caffeine!

    I have green tea tablets, as dont 'like' hot drinks really. They dont seem to do much, apart from make me visit the loo more often - not for a laxative reason though!

    Hiya

    I've tried green tea cos I read it helps with weight loss. Not sure about the laxative effects tho!

    I read in a fitness mag that to get the full weight loss benefits you would need to be drinking 6-8 cups of green tea a day. I could just about manage 3, so went onto green tea supplements instead. Now I just have to remember to take them!:)
