Green Tea Daily Review

I was not too sure what to expect when I received this product as I am a very skeptical person when it comes to claims being made about beverages or even energy bars that help you loose weight or give you energy. Well, I know caffeine will make you feel jittery and rev you up some but I have never been one to really give it a second thought.

So, when I had the chance to review this one, GreenTeaDaily, I decided to give it a shot. As you can see, I was sent what they call the Week Sampler Pack in the Original flavor which contained 12 packets of the green tea that you mix in with your water.

You drank it sometimes twice a day. I have to tell you that 7 days is not enough time for me to know if it helped with any weight loss so I can only tell you what they say on their website.

This is what is on the box:

GreenTeaDAILY is a highly concentrated form of green tea and noni. In one serving of GreenTeaDaily you can reap the health benefits of as much as 45 cups of regular green tea and as much as a daily serving of noni juice. GreenTeaDaily is aspartame-free and gluten-free.

I know you know that I love tea. I have not made that any big secret so I will always be partial to tea. Having said that, even I can't drink as many cups of green tea as the health experts want you to drink (at least 5 cups a day) in order to get the maximum benefits of what green tea can provide. So, one of the great things about GreenTeaDaily is that each serving has 45 cups of regular tea in it!

Next thing I thought, umm, I might be a basket case if I drink that much caffeine, but I was surprised that I did not feel light headed or jittery. They have five thirst-quenching flavors to choose from: Original, Raspberry Lemonade, Strawberry Pineapple, Chocolate, and Creamsicle. I bet the Creamsicle might have been interesting!

I did not use a full bottle of water and I only used one packet in that bottle. When I first took a drink I was not happy that it tasted like it was unsweetened! I had not even thought about that! Duh!! I guess if it is going to help you lose weight then you definitely would not have sugar in it!

So, I had to cheat a little and put some in there or else I would not have been able to drink it. I wanted to drink it for the energy anyway, not for weight loss. A little sugar (now that is the operative word: little) I was able to drink the bottle of tea. I mean, it is not good ole southern sweet tea, but it was bearable given I did not add as much sugar as I would normally have added to my tea. If you are really serious about losing the weight I think you could drink this without the sugar and be just fine.

I just wasn't committed to that. I did notice a slight increase in energy but because I have Fibromyalgia and RA it would be really hard for me to judge just how much energy you will get out of the bottle vs what I got. You might have been hanging from the lamp posts for all I know! Hubby would not test this one for me so I don't know what the reaction for a normal person would be. (He hates green tea, loves black tea but no green!) Besides green tea it has noni, acai berry and maqui berry and calcium to give you a potent drink!

Here is the GreenTeaDaily Promise:

Our intention right from the get go was to create a green tea beverage that can do more than just quenching thirst. We wanted it to help us regulate a healthy body weight and gain healthy energy, and we did it. GreenTeaDaily stands behind every one of our product in every aspect, from the quality of our ingredients to the effectiveness of our beverage. We want to make sure that our products bring you the antioxidants and health-promoting properties that we promised in their entirety. This is and will always be the GreenTeaDaily promise--bringing you the best of green tea. And now, to health!

Here is what GreenTeaDaily says it can do:

•Reduces Appetite by 15- 20%
•Increases Metabolism
•Boosts Healthy Energy Levels
•Reduces Body Fat
•Improves Health
•Promotes Longevity

I think it would be worth a try for someone who is lacking energy due to no illnesses and just doesn't have that get up and go or who is trying to find ways to help them lose weight and feel good. If you don't try it you will never know if it might have helped you or not. In my situation, it would take alot to help with my energy levels. Along with the Fibromyalgia and RA, I have Hypothyroidism so I have 3 illnesses that just drain the life outta me so I really did not expect any miracles.

It did give me a few quick bursts here and there but nothing long lasting. But, again, that is only me. It is only green tea filled with several good for you fruits but as always, check with your doctor before taking anything that could affect your health. If he/she says to go for it, then I really would see if it could help. I know if there was something out there that would help me, I would jump at the chance in a heartbeat!
