Many dubious claims from "SkinnyMint", a company that makes "detox teas".

One of their Facebook posts from 8/12/16 (picture attached - talking about their tea bags): "Did you know these little packs of awesomeness could help you kick bloat’s ass, boost your metabolism and cleanse your body? Well yes, they can."

From their Facebook 'About' section: "Our philosophy is to use the highest quality ingredients to create the most effective and potent products. SkinnyMint combines those ingredients for their maximum effect using an effect, known as food synergy. Not only do the different ingredients complement each other, they also are more potent together, then they would be individually."

Is food synergy a real thing?!
