Slim Mate Dieter’s Tea Focus of Class Action Lawsuit Investigation

By Sarah Pierce

 

Slim Mate Dieter's TeaSlim Mate Dieter’s Tea is a very popular natural weight loss herbal tea that promises to cleanse your body from excess waste and fat deposits. However, a new class action lawsuit investigation into Slim Mate may have some consumers questioning how effective this product really is.

Tadin, the maker of Slim Mate Dieter’s herbal tea, promises that just 1 cup of Slim Mate a day can start to cleanse the system of toxic wastes and help soothe unpleasant digestive comfort after eating. Slim Mate allegedly works by creating a mild lubricating effect to ensure the proper elimination of excessive wastes and unwanted pounds.

The main ingredient in Slim Mate Dieter’s Tea is the herb senna, an herbal laxative that is used in many homeopathic treatments for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and weight loss. Studies show that long-term use of senna and other herbal laxatives can actually thwart weight loss by slowing the metabolism and causing chronic bloating and constipation.

This has led the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) to warn against long-term use of senna leaf.

The most common side effects of senna leaf are gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal pain, cramps, bloating, gas, diarrhea and nausea. More serious side effects of senna are rare, but can include severe stomach pain, severe diarrhea and an allergic reaction, with symptoms of a rash, hives, mouth or throat swelling and difficulty breathing.

Overusing senna can lead to even more complications, including a decrease in colon function, joint pain, liver or kidney dysfunction, weakening and softening of the bones, heart problems, seizures and the development of wide, flattened fingertips (known as finger clubbing).

Homeopathic Consumer Advocates claim Tadin does not do enough to warn consumers about these potential side effects of Slim Mate Dieter’s Tea and overstate the effectiveness of the herbal tea for weight loss.

If you purchased Tadin Slim Mate Dieter’s Tea, you may be a victim of homeopathy fraud. Homeopathic Consumer Advocates are investigating these claims and want to help consumers get the compensation they deserve for buying a product that did not work as advertised.
