Let's get something clear right off the bat,
I'm not selling ...or...trying to sell...or...
know anyone who sells any of these flat tummy teas and slim teas am I about to review.
So what does that mean? Simple.
This review article you're about to read is going to be an unbiased and a very "brutal" one.
I won't use sugar to cover anything, that I promise you.
Okay, that said, let's move on to the business of the day...
Review Of Popular Slim Tea & Flat Tummy Tea In Nigeria
Okay, the way this review is structured is quite simple.
First, I give you some background gist of the product. Next, I list out all the features and benefit claimed by manufacturers and sellers of the product.
Then finally I give you my humble (but accurate) option and verdict.
Without further talk, let's get down to business...
1. Slimtea Nigeria (28 Days Detox) Review
Sometime in 2016, Slimtea Nigeria came out with an aggressive marketing tactic. They signed two Nigerian actresses, Ini Edo and Ani Idibia as their ambassadors.
Their Ads were all over the place, on Linda Ikeji's blog and the likes.
And they were even giving out 50 grand (50 thousand Naira) to anyone who simply sends them a before and after pictures with proof of using Slimtea
But today, the last piece of their online property left is this screenshot below (their youtube channel banner).
In other words, their official website is no longer live.
Anyways, let's move on to the review proper.
Features & Benefit Claims of Slim Tea Nigeria
According to the sellers and producers of Slimtea Nigeria...
It is a 100% natural weight loss detox tea made from natural herbs like Assia seeds, hemp kernel and green tea. It's has a mild and pleasant taste and texture.
And it's supposed to be 28-day detox tea that both detoxifies and "flushes" out fat from your body system.
What's In the Slimtea Pack?
In the pack, you'll find 28 individually wrapped tea bags packed in a sealed pack.
Price of Slimtea Nigeria
Since they don't longer have an official website, the price varies depending on who is selling.
How To Use Slimtea
You are recommended to take a cup of Slimtea daily anytime you like.
Benefits Of Using Slimtea
According to producers and promoters of Slimtea, here are the benefits of drinking the tea:
- It detoxifies the body system
- Promotes Digestion
- Suppresses Appetite & Reduces Food Cravings
- Increases metabolism, therefore accelerates weight loss
Side effects of Slimtea Nigeria
So far, I haven't seen anyone promoting slimtea say it has any side effect.
Some people even go as far as too say, it has no side effect because it's made of natural ingredients.
Which is, of course, bullshit (excuse my french).
Look, there is no product on earth, whether natural or unnatural that don't have a side effect.
So slim tea would have the side effect of each of the combined ingredients (Assia seeds, hemp kernel, green tea and other ingredients in the tea we don't know about)
Does Slimtea Nigeria Work?
First and foremost let me get this out of my chest...
You see, most times, if a celebrity endorses a product, the product is usually shit. And of course, the celebrity doesn't care, they have mouths to feed, you know.
Now, Slimtea is supposed to help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism and suppressing your appetite.
The truth is metabolism boost you get from drinking one cup of tea is not significant enough to move the needle.
And whether it helps you suppress your appetite or not, largely depends on your willpower.
Also, you can't lose fat that took years to accumulate in just 28 days of drinking tea. That's just common sense.
Wait what about all those success "before and after" pictures of people who used Slimtea?
Hey, remember slim tea was giving out 50K cash to anyone who simply sends them a before and after pictures with proof of using Slimtea
So that means no matter how you lose weight, just send your before and after picture holding a Slimtea pack and you win 50K.
And Slimtea get to use your pictures for their adverts.
In essence, what I saying is that there is no legitimate evidence that people who lose weight using slimtea actually did. They might have simply lost weight because they change their diet and exercised.
Should You Buy Slimtea or Not?
The short answer is NO
Don't waste your money. Slimtea Nigeria has no legitimate and significant long-term effect on weight loss.
And the detox benefit is unnecessary because the body naturally rids itself of toxins.
2.Flat Tummy Tea With Moringa Review
Flat tummy tea with moringa is another popular weight loss tea that has been endorsed by a couple of celebrities like Rita Dominic, Flavour Nabania and the likes.
You would also find their Ads on Linda Ikejis blog and others.
Features & Benefit Claims of Flat Tummy Tea With Moringa
According to the producers and promoters of Flat Tummy Tea...
It is a belly blaster made from 100% natural ingredients like moringa and oolong tea.
And it's supposed to be 28-day cleanse tea that both detoxify and get rid of body fat (especially stomach fat)
What's In the Flat Tummy Tea Pack?
The pack contains 28 individually wrapped tea bags packed in a sealed pack.
Price of Flat Tummy Tea
Their official website is no longer live, so there's no one official price.
depending on who is selling.
How To Use Flat Tummy Tea
You are to drink a cup of flat tummy tea every night.
Benefits Of Using Flat Tummy Tea
According to producers and promoters of flat tummy tea, here are the benefits of drinking the tea:
- Detoxifies the body system
- Boost your energy level
- Suppresses Appetite
- Remove belly fat
- Increases metabolism, therefore accelerates weight loss
- Improves digestion.
Side effects of Flat Tummy Tea
So far, I haven't seen anyone promoting Flat Tummy Tea say anything about its side effects.
However, as you may know, everything (both natural or artificial) has side effects
So, Flat Tummy Tea would have the side effect of each of the combined ingredients (Moringa, oolong tea and other ingredients in the tea we don't know about)
Does Slimtea Flat Tummy Tea Work?
Well, the first thing you should know is that you don't get to choose what part of your body you lose weight from.
In other words, there is no such thing a spot reduction. If you want to lose belly fat or fat on any other part of your body, for that matter, you have to lose weight normally.
There's no special diet or tea or exercise that will target only your belly. It's a myth!
Knowing that, you can immediately tell that this Flat Tummy Tea is almost useless when it comes to helping you lose belly fat.
Don't believe me? Then here's a review video of someone who actually bought and tried the Flat Tummy Tea below:
The above videos say it all... Drinking only Flat Tummy Tea to lose weight or belly fat is as good as useless.
Should You Buy Flat Tummy Tea or Not?
The simple answer is NO.
It's a huge waste of your money and time.
Because there is no legitimate evidence the tea works. However, on the contrary, there is evidence the tea doesn't.
3. Slimmex Green Coffee Review
Slimmex green coffee is another very popular slim tea in Nigeria
You would have probably seen at least one of their ads follow you up and down the internet.
I have actually done a more detailed review about green coffee Here.
Features & Benefit Claims of Slimmex Green Coffee.
The sellers of Slimmex green coffee claims that the green coffee can boost your metabolism, burn fat, manage blood sugar levels and prevent you from overeating.
What's In the Slimmex Green Coffee Pack?
A pack of slimmex green coffee pack contains over 1,000 pieces of green coffee beans.
Which should last you about 13 days or so.
How To Use Slimmex Green Coffee
You use green coffee just like regular coffee.
You add hot water and the coffee into your cup without sugar or any artificial sweeteners.
Benefits Of Using Slimmex Green Coffee
Based off on claims, here are the benefits of drinking Slimmex green coffee:
- Manages blood sugar
- Suppresses Appetite
- Increases metabolism
- helps in activating the liver
- eliminate harmful acids, chemicals and high level of cholesterol from the body.
Side effects of Slimmex Green Coffee
The side effect of Slimmex green coffee is similar to the side effect of regular coffee. Because green coffee is just a less processed version of coffee.
That said, some of the side effect of green coffee includes restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, stomach upset and more.
Also, consuming too much chlorogenic acid found in the green coffee extract may increase the risk of heart disease, as it raises the levels of the amino acid, homocysteine, in the body.
Does Slimmex Green Coffee Work?
Well, some studies show that green coffee might have a mild weight loss effect.
However, there have been only a handful of studies done on green coffee. And most of the studies were small, poorly conducted, short-term, and sponsored by companies that sell green coffee beans.
Also, some people who have used Slimmex green coffee said that it helped them to suppress their appetite significantly. While others said it had no effect.
Should You Buy Slimmex Green Coffee or Not?
In my own opinion, the answer is NO. Because the short-lived tiny result you “might” get from using green coffee is not worth the money and time.
However, if you decide you want to try any of the slim teas then, it should probably be green coffee.
4.BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee Review
BURN Liven Alkaline coffee is another quite popular slim tea in Nigeria. All thanks to AIM (Alliance in motion ) Global distributors trying to push it down our throat.
By the way, BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee is one of AIM Global's (a network marketing company) Product.
Anyways, Alkaline Coffee's claim to fame is that it is difficult to lose weight if your body PH level is acidic. Because your body needs to keep the fat around to hold onto to the acid.
So by drinking alkaline coffee, your body acidic level reduces and so does the fat. And it also helps your blood pressure and cholesterol.
Features & Benefit Claims of Burn Liven Alkaline Coffee
According to the producers and sellers,
Burn Liven Alkaline Coffee is made of premium Arabica beans, fortified with Complete Phyto Energizer, Satiereal, Carnipure, Green Tea Extract EFLA 942, Garcinia Cambogia and Anhydrous Caffeine.
And the infusion of these ingredients helps to increase metabolism, energy and the feeling of satiety, which help with weight loss and management
So in essence, Liven Alkaline Coffee is just regular coffee that is enriched with a couple of phytonutrients and phytoalcaline.

Side effects of BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee
According to the promoters, BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee is 100% safe,
non-toxic, non-acidic and no palpitation.
Anyways, that doesn't stop it from having side effects.
Since its base ingredient is coffee, that means it inherits the side effects of coffee including restlessness, anxiety, insomnia, stomach upset and more.
Also, it would have the side effects of each of the other combined ingredients.
Lastly, it's not advisable for pregnant women to take it.
Does BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee Work?
Well, first off, Studies has shown that the acidity or alkalinity of what we eat does not affect our body’s pH levels.
So the theory of Burn Liven Alkaline Coffee would help reduce acidity in your system, so you lose weight and help with various illness is Nonsense!
However, since alkaline coffee is regular coffee with added ingredients, then it may slightly healthier.
That said, there is no concrete evidence it's has a significant benefit for weight loss.
Should You Buy BURN Liven Alkaline Coffee or Not?
If you need it for weight loss then you should probably not waste your money.
However, if you love drinking coffee and you want a slightly healthier version then, you can get it.
My Number 1 Recommendation
My number one recommendation I preach and would always preach is...
To eat a healthy diet and exercise. I know it's old-fashioned and boring but it's still the most effective way to lose weight.
Cheer up, I have also compiled this:
Also, I highly recommend you also check out this post: How to lose weight for Nigerians. You'll love it.
As you can see, most of this so-called slim tea or flat tummy tea are just over hyped.
Most of them have no significant effect on most people and are expensive. At best, their effects are "short-lived" and not permanent.
If you want to drink tea then stick to green tea and coffee. Also, check out my recommendations above.
