Doctors Warn Against Kylie Jenner’s Endorsement Of Latest Health Fad!
Kylie Jenner has been criticised by doctors for promoting a weight loss product on Instagram which has no scientific evidence about it’s effectiveness.
“Enjoying my @fitteawraps They’re keeping my tummy toned & lean as it gets closer to summer,” Jenner, 19, shared to her Instagram account.
The description for the weight loss product on the Fit Tea website says:
“Fit Tea Wraps are a natural, non-GMO [Genetically Modified Organism] way to improve problem areas. Our wraps are infused with our Body Defining Gel Formula: a botanical blend of cocoa, seaweed, green Tea and hawthorn berry extracts proven to tighten, firm, and improve overall skin texture. The ingredients in Fit Tea Wraps continue working, even after removal! Up to 72 hours after the use of a Fit Tea Wrap, our natural extracts continue penetrating skin to provide toning, firming, and cellulite-minimising benefits.”
Embarrassing Bodies Down Under doctor, Sam Hay says the claims are utter rubbish!
“I am flabbergasted that people are stupid enough to believe in this,” Dr Hay said.
“Fat and cellulite have a very low blood supply, so very little of those ingredients are going to be absorbed through the skin, and even less of it is going to be absorbed into the fat.
There’s just no science behind it whatsoever. People are being hoodwinked.”
Jenner, who has over 86 million Instagram followers, should be setting a better example for her young fans who are no doubt very impressionable and believe every word the reality TV star says.
“She’s not a health professional but she still has a responsibility to promote something that has an effect. I would argue this has zero effects,” Dr Hay said.
The Kardashians were recently told they had to include the hashtag AD at the end of the products they were being paid to promote. Now when we see #ad at the end of a photo we know the sisters are basically advertising the product in exchange for a LOT of money!
In conclusion, Dr. Hay says the best way to lose weight and keep it off is to exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet.
“I’m a big believer in a balanced lifestyle. Weight control is about eating less energy and burning off more, simple as that. Eat less food and do more exercise,” he said.
