Has anyone had good results from these or are they a bit "dodgy". The claim amazing results in their advertising. Im sorely tempted tbh but I wonder is it a case of them sending you running to the bathroom every 5 minutes?

No evidence that they work, mainly diuretics

Yes some weight loss teas give temporary results, exactly because they contain laxatives. Not really the result you're after. Detox is bullshit, you have kidneys and liver for that and there's absolutely no evidence that any tea or shake removes 'toxins' from your body
