Weight management means keeping your body weight at a healthy level. Regular exercise plus a healthy diet are crucial when it comes to controlling your weight, but it is not always easy to keep it off. The key to successful weight loss is making changes to your diet and increasing your physical activity.
BodySense Tea is a proven aid to help manage weight gain and assist in burning off pounds when needed. It is a delicious tea that refreshes, while the specially selected slimming formula promotes calorie-burning to enhance your weight loss.
Garcinia cambogia extract: Also known as CitriMax, this excellent weight loss supplement contains standardized levels of hydroxycitric acid, which have been clinically shown to suppress appetite and inhibit fat production, without stimulating the central nervous system. Clinical research has also shown that CitriMax is an all-natural and very effective aid for reducing or maintaining weight.Hibiscus flowers: Hibiscus flowers are used as a gentle diuretic (ideal if you are retaining water) and for circulation problems.
Chinese Green Tea: Extensive clinical research has shown that green tea helps to suppress appetite as well as play a significant role in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that Chinese green tea increases caloric expenditure (thermogenesis) and it supports fatty acid oxidation, helping you to effectively manage body weight.
Hawthorn berries: Help to reduce water retention by expelling excess salt from the body. Hawthorn Berries have also been used to reduce nervous tension, alleviate insomnia and promote proper digestion.
Malva verticillata leaves: Work to promote optimal performance of the digestive tract.
Parsley root: An effective diuretic and also promotes proper digestion.
Lemon peel: helps the body to cleanse by promoting perspiration and acting as a natural diuretic. Lemons also aid digestion and help to reduce hyperacidity in the stomach.
Citric acid: Helps to enhance proper metabolism. Citric acid also promotes the movement of waste from the body, and it adds a bit of zest to the tea.
Cranberries (fruit pieces): An effective preventive and treatment for bladder infections, cranberries are a source of proanthocyanidins. Cranberries are a gentle diuretic helping to mobilize ‘false fat’ or excess water retained in cells.

For hot tea use 1 tea bag per cup. Add boiling water and steep for 3 minutes (or longer for stronger tea) then remove the tea bag. For iced tea pour 2 cups of boiling water over 4 tea bags. Steep for 5 minutes and remove the tea bags. Add two cups of cold water and chill to desired temperature. A simple and delicious thirst quencher is to hang a couple of tea bags in your water bottle for a refreshing taste throughout the day.
Why don't you put nutrition labeling on your boxes of teas?
The Nutrition Facts table appears on almost all prepackaged foods, however Health Canada has provided exemption to certain foods, including tea leaves and herbs.
What is the source of your "all natural flavours" in your line of teas?All the natural flavours found in our teas are vegetal based - they are derived from fruits, vegetables and/or plants.Do your teas contain caffeine?No, our teas are all caffeine free.
Are your Healing Teas gluten free?
Yes, we can confirm that BodySense Tea is gluten free.Because our healing teas are a 3rd party product (arrives as a finished product to our manufacturing facility and then are packaged in Canada) we can confirm that yes they are gluten free, and there is no possibility of cross-contamination during the manufacturing process.
I bought a box of your product, and although it seemed to feel lighter than usual, I didn't think much of it, until I opened the box and discovered that there is nowhere near the amount of packages inside as there should have been. How can this happen?
As part of our corporate policy and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirement, our procedures incorporate routine in-process checks plus a final examination of the finished product to ensure conformance to all aspects of quality, including correct product count. There are a number of checks and balances performed by both Production and Quality Assurance personnel prior to, during, and after the packaging operations to ensure that product under-counts do not happen. Although product under-counts can happen, this occurrence is rare. Should you discover that your box of tea is far below the label claim count upon opening - we recommend you return it to your point of purchase as per our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
Do all of your products have an NPN?
Yes, all of our products have been issued a Natural Product Number (NPN) by Health Canada – these numbers do appear on our labels. Further Natural Health Product criteria and information can be found on the Health Canada website www.hc-sc.gc.ca Under the Food and Drugs Act items that are considered a food – for example, our protein powders and herbal teas – do not require an NPN. Why have your cautions and your recommended/suggested usages changed so dramatically on many of your labels?
The changes you are noticing to our suggested usage and cautionary statements have been at the directive of Health Canada. There have been many regulatory changes with regards to Natural Health Products causing companies to change their labels accordingly. We update our website, product information sheets and labels on the actual products to reflect these regulations as quickly as we possibly can. Health Canada and the industry representing natural health products act according to the interest of consumers and their safety. As a result, if there is any concern with an existing condition, a caution is added to advise the consumer to seek out feedback from their Health Care professional.
Are your products GMO free?
Preferred Nutrition is currently in the process of testing all of our products so that we can advise the public if any of them contain ingredients that come from genetically modified organisms or not. Once the testing is complete we will indicate on our website, as well as on our product information sheets and on our labels. This will be done as quickly as possible and on a product-by-product basis.Will this product help me lose weight?
There is no such thing as a "magic" pill or product - the only way to succeed (and maintain) true weight loss is by adopting a healthy lifestyle combining adequate exercise and proper nutrition. If you are concerned about poor eating habits or cravings, then we recommend you seek advice from a Nutritionist or Naturopath to obtain some guidance on healthy eating, as well as to investigate possible underlying (or undiagnosed) hormonal imbalances, which can make it harder to lose weight. You might also want to consider speaking with a personal trainer to help you discover a fun fitness program that you enjoy - because, no matter what, in order to achieve and maintain any type of weight loss, exercise is required. Our vitamins and supplements are designed to help you in your quest to a daily, healthy lifestyle, however it also requires effort on your part.Where do you source your products from?
Please be advised that all of our ingredients, including flavourings, are derived from natural ingredients and are ISURA tested & certified (in order to ensure the absence of GMOs, contaminants, heavy metals and adulteration). All of our products are manufactured at a GMP facility certified by Health Canada. All raw materials come in and are tested for purity, safety and potency. If they do not meet our standards they are rejected and sent back or destroyed. We use the highest quality ingredients available, and choose organic whenever we can. Many of our products contain proprietary patented ingredients that have been clinically researched to help deliver optimal results and outstanding quality.Are your products peanut free?
Following compliance with food regulations, in order to make a negative claim such as "peanut free", it would be necessary to insure a zero tolerance of any peanut traces, including the possibility of cross contamination. Although our manufacturing facility has a policy in place for allergen control, there is no specific policy for peanuts, nor is there a specific "no peanut agreement" with our raw material suppliers.Can your products be used after the expiry date has passed?
Supplements generally keep their potency long after the expiry date. There is certainly no safety issues with consuming after the expiry date has passed however the potency degrades over longer periods of time.Are any of your products "vegan-friendly"?
Yes, AdrenaSense, EstroSense, MenoSense, BioSil, Medi-C Plus, Magnesium and MagSense (from our WomenSense and Preferred Nutrition product lines), the Healing Teas, our Ultimate Maca Energy products and the Ultimate VEGAN line are all vegan friendly.
Why can't I find any prices on your website?
Preferred Nutrition is the wholesale distribution company for the products on this website. However we sell exclusively to Health Food stores & selected Natural Pharmacies across Canada, not directly to the general public. Because the prices of our products can vary from store-to-store, we are unable to list our suggested prices on our website. We recommend you contact your local retailer and inquire about prices directly with them. Can I purchase products directly from you? I went to a health food store and the prices seem very expensive.
We distribute our products in Canada only and we sell directly to Health Food stores - since they have a personal commitment to the natural health lifestyle. Consumers are then able to buy our products from knowledgeable staff that are genuinely interested in helping people be well - people who care! Always be sure to look for in store promotions or coupons when you are making your purchases as this can help alleviate your cost concerns.Do all health food stores carry all of your products?
To find Health Food stores in your area that carry our products, please click on "Store Locator" at the top of this screen. All you have to do is enter your postal code and you will be given a list of retailers in the radius that you choose. We do recommend calling ahead to see if they stock the item you are looking for and in most cases if a store does not normally carry something, they will offer to do a special order for you.Are any of your products tested on animals?
No, there is no animal testing on any of our products.Should your supplements be taken with or without food?
Most of our products will specify directly on the bottle whether they should be taken with a meal or not. If nothing is stated, then the choice is yours as to when the best time is for you to take them. In general, however, most vitamin supplements should be taken with food because once eating starts the digestive process, enzymes and gastric juices are generated and usually the nutrients will be absorbed and assimilated better.I like the sound of many of your products. Am I able to take different formulas at the same time?
Yes, it's safe to combine various WomenSense products to help support the body in achieving optimal health. The same applies to the Preferred Nutrition line, Dr. Whitaker's formulas and Brad King's. If you are unsure of any combination, then please consult your Health Care Practitioner.Can you tell me if I can combine any of your supplements with the medication(s) I am on, as prescribed by my doctor?
It is best to consult your Doctor or alternative Health Practitioner before taking any new supplements while on prescribed medication. If you have been approved to add our supplement(s) to your daily regime, then we do recommend that you space the medication and the supplements out by at least one hour.
Can I take your products when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
We are not able to make any recommendations with any of our products when it comes to pregnancy or while nursing. You must contact your Health Practitioner, Naturopath or Pharmacist.I understand that you put a recommended dosage on your labels, but I can take more or less than that, right? And, really, do I have to take the product every day?
With regards to the recommended dosage, we would suggest you speak to your Doctor or Health Care Practitioner before increasing any amounts. As with any supplement you can determine your amount based on your personal preference - if you find that a product works for you immediately then you should be fine to take it just on the days you feel you need it, but again we suggest you discuss this with you MD or HP. Some consumers find that a product needs to be in their system for a few days to a few weeks before they notice results and/or feel the full benefits. What is your 100% money-back (customer satisfaction) guarantee?
Our 100% money-back/customer satisfaction guarantee ensures that if a customer is not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return the unused portion of the product (in its original packaging) back to their point of purchase and we will credit the Health Food store 100% of their purchase price from us. We cannot dictate if a store will give cash back or an in-store credit, nor can we override store policies already in place ~ but we do promise to credit them, regardless of the reason for the return.
