Tons of people are waking up to the benefits of tea. Tea has been popular throughout pretty much all of human history but more people in the West are realizing that tea makes a much healthier alternative to other drinks like coffee or energy drinks. Natural teas can give you a boost of natural energy and supply your body with important antioxidants.
As such, there has been a huge movement towards herbal teas meant specifically for health purposes. Iaso tea is one such blend. We recently reviewed Mud WTR, which is a great, all-natural alternative to coffee. Iaso Tea takes a similar approach, but with a different range of ingredients. Iaso Tea is an herbal tea blend that is made from “high-quality ingredients” that claims to rid your body of harmful toxins and help you lose weight.
Herbal supplements make all kinds of radical claims but rarely do they actually make good on those promises. Today we are going to cover Iaso Tea and figure out if it’s really as cracked up as it seems to be or if it;’s just another generic tea in an oversaturated supplement market.
Iaso Tea: Overview
Iaso Tea markets itself as being made from “high-quality” ingredients and promises to help cleanse your body of toxins and lose weight.
First things first, we get skeptical when we hear the word “toxins” in the context of supplements. The reason being that “toxins” do not have a clear medical definition. The term “toxin” gets used to refer to all kinds of supposedly “bad” things in your body. The problem with things that promise to flush toxins from your body is that they never specify which toxins they remove and how they do it. That is something to keep in mind as we continue with this review.
That being said, Iaso Tea is one of the best selling products in the world so apparently customers love it. Each mixture of Iaso contains a blend of natural ingredients that are meant to cleanse the intestines and help you lose weight. Herbal tea blends are a well-known method to suppress the appetite so that claim checks out. Also, tea blends can work as a diuretic which can help flush things out of your digestive systems.
All the ingredients in Iaso are 100% organic and it does not contain any synthetic active ingredients. All non-natural ingredients are just for texture and mixing and have no nutritional input. The tea also does not contain any caffeine which is great for those who are sensitive to caffeine.

Who Makes Iaso Tea?
Iaso Tea is made by Total Life Changes (TLC), a health and wellness company founded in 2008 by CEO Jack Fallon. TLC is dedicated to creating products that help people unlock their full potential. In their own words from their own website: “We’re working hard every day to make sure our customers feel healthier and more energized, our employees feel inspired, and our Life Changers feel supported and excited for their unlimited income potential.”
Along with its Iaso Tea blend, TLC also makes instant tea pouches, liquid multivitamins, and other health supplements.
How Does Iaso Tea Work?
Iaso Tea is not a magic bullet so it will not work quickly. Iaso is designed to facilitate long-term weight loss by both suppressing the appetite and servings as a substitute for sugary and other unhealthy drinks like soda or juice. Replace your daily snake with some Iaso tea and you can start to see results in about a month. To be clear, you still need to exercise to get the full effect, Iaso just makes it easier to manage your diet.
Iaso Tea claims that it can help your concentration and lower mental fog, though it’s not clear if that is from Iaso or if it’s from cutting out all the junk you replace with the tea. Either way, taking Iaso and cutting out bad foods can help you lose weight.
Iaso tea also claims to detoxify your intestines. Again, this is not so much a result of Iaso but a result of your cutting out all the bad foods that Iaso is meant to replace. That being said, Iaso has a lot of antioxidants that can deal with stress and inflammation of the digestive system.
Iaso Tea Ingredients
Iaso has several natural herbal ingredients, including:
- Permission leaves
- Holy thistle
- Malva leaves
- Blessed thistle
Some of these ingredients like holy thistle and blessed thistle you might not have heard of before while others like chamomile and ginger are extremely common tea ingredients. Suffice to say, all of the natural herbal ingredients are a source of antioxidants and work as stimulants to lower the appetite.
Safety and Side Effects
Iaso Tea itself does not indicate any side effects but some do exist. The most frequent ones we could find were very mild and include:
- Excessive urination
- Upset stomach
- Irregular bowel movements
Again, all of these side effects are most likely a result of the detox process and changing your diet, not necessarily from the tea itself. They should go away once you get used to drinking the tea.
Where to Buy Iaso Tea and Cost
You can buy Iaso tea directly from the product manufacturer’s website or you can buy it from third-party retailers like Amazon. You can also buy Iaso tea in several physical locations like the Vitamin Shoppe, and Walmart. A 5-pack of Iaso tea costs just under $50.
Iaso Tea: Worth it or Not?
Iaso tea seems to be pretty effective and has a great list of natural ingredients that have been shown to help suppress appetite. We are a bit skeptical of the cleansing claims, but if you take the tea as directed your diet should change and you will feel healthier. One major problem is the price. Iaso tea is pretty expensive at $50 for a 5-pack.
