Product Review

-- Product Review -- 

Tana Siebold, the Creative Director with Orca Communications Unlimited LLC, first made a connection with me on October 23rd with an invitation to review Pure Health’s healthy weight management and natural energy products. Pure Health ( is a US based company, headquartered in Las Vegas, NV with distribution outlets in Austin, Texas.

Tana decided to send me samples of these two products below, which I received in the main on December 23rd 2013:

Nature's Green & Lean Tea
Garcinia Cambogia

Now I love drinking tea, hot or cold, but especially enjoy hot tea on cool winter days and so I was looking forward to trying the Nature’s Green & Lean Tea… this is in fact the best green tea I have every had – it is also my husband’s favorite, he tends to choose it over all other teas in our cupboard. This tea comes in a unique container – a cylinder shaped metal container and retails for $11.99 (US). Each container includes 30 individual teabags; the bags are not individually wrapped so there is no extra packaging, and bags are compostable after use. Nature’s Green & Lean Tea is a blend of green tea and green coffee beans with spices and herbs including cinnamon, anise, ginger, and stevia. These herbs combine to offer natural weight control and energy stimulation. Green tea is well known for its anti-oxidant properties, while green coffee offers chlorogenic acids. Most herbal teas can be served hot or cold, but you’ll have to start with hot water from the kettle and be sure to steep for 10-15 minutes. In the summer, chill and store in a jug in the fridge, serve over ice.  The company recommends that people drink a cup or glass 30 minutes prior to each meal for best weight control benefits.  Simply drinking a glass of water or tea before a meal like this helps fill the tummy, making you feel fuller faster so you eat less. Increased amounts of liquids are essential to any health regime because they help flush the body of toxins that are released with both exercise and weight loss.

I also received one bottle of 90 capsules of Garcinia Cambogia (retail value $26.99 – US); this product has no binders or fillers… directions are to take 2-4 capsules 3X per day, 30 min prior to meals along with a 10 oz. glass of water for best results. The container is a brown plastic bottle that provides protection from the sun and offers a 2-year shelf life. Just 2 of these pills (encased in vegetarian capsules) also offer calcium (6% Daily Value – a.k.a. “DV”), Chromium (83% DV) and potassium (3% DV). Garcinia Cambogia is purported to block the body’s tendency to convert foods into fat, therefore providing weight management benefits; it is also said to reduce one’s appetite because it increases serotonin levels in the body, balances the lymph system, and increases the production of new blood cells. However few people have actually seen real results and some people (like myself) feel constipated when taking this supplement, which I imagine is the reason behind the recommendation of drinking additional water.  The company also adds black pepper extract to this supplement to enable better absorption. Garcinia, by the way, is an extract from a small fruit known a as tamarind that grows in hot humid regions like Indonesia and India.

I went to Pure Health's website ( to do more research on the company however at that time there were many pages that were not loading, and the blog was limited as well. They do have a couple videos on their site, but not for these products. However I was impressed to read on their site: “We pride ourselves on the purity of our products, so everything at Pure Health is purchased by us directly from the farms they are grown on with absolutely NO middleman involved.  Our attention to purity and quality has made us the world leader in authentic, 100% pure Superfoods and we take special pride in producing the most fresh, clean and potent products available worldwide.
