I usually get gastric pains during fasting month because I eat irregularly and often times eat very little at sahur but way too much at iftar. Basically, I have really terrible eating habits during Ramadhan, including uncharacteristic cravings for anything deep-fried, really sweet or really salty. Fortunately, just before Ramadhan began, I received a pack of TruDtox tea to review. TruDtox has been so great for me because it allows me to indulge without feeling the effects too much. With the help of TruDTox, I'm happy to report I've yet to miss a single day of fasting due to stomach-related pains!
TruDtox is formulated by a Swiss nutraceutical company and is rigorously tested, approved and qualified. It is made of European Herbs and is certified as food by the Ministry of Health. It doesn't contain harsh laxatives (eg: Senna), so it really offers a gentle cleansing. The most important thing is, it is a made of 100% natural & organic herbs, floras and teas. No artificial colouring, bulking agents, pesticides, or caffeine here!
I was given a TruDtox 15 + 2s Gentle Detox Tea pack, and I had one cup of the tea every two to three days throughout Ramadhan. In the beginning I tried drinking it during iftar, but I found that it did give a mild laxative effect for me personally, so after the first week I started drinking it only during sahur.

Here are 4 reason I love drinking TruDtox Tea during Ramadhan:
|Please excuse my sleepy, |
no-makeup sahur face
- It made me less bloated
I can't be the only one who wakes up in the morning really bloated during Ramadhan. I know full well that it's because I'm drinking too much water before bed. It's important because it's the only time I can really hydrate, but darn it, I look like a balloon when I wake up in the morning! Drinking TruDtox really cut down on the bloatedness naturally - without having me pass gas, mind you ;)
- It made me "go" regularly
Ok, this is a little TMI, but I have a problem with constipation. I try to eat lots of fiber and stay hydrated, but during Ramadhan I've kind of found that hard to do. I've found that after about a week of drinking TruDtox, I became really regular.
- It gave me energy
I know it says that there's no caffeine in TruDtox but I'm sure there's something in it that keeps my energy up. The days that I drink TruDtox tea for sahur are my most productive! The thing is, it isn't like a brief spurt of energy either - it keeps me going throughout the day.
- It's yummy!
This was unexpected. I generally don't drink herbal teas because in my experience, they taste awful. In fact, when I received the box of TruDtox tea, I put in two teaspoons of sugar because I was afraid it would taste nasty. Suprisingly, it tasted really good!
