Zi Xiu Tang Reviews - Understanding Why Different Users of Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Capsules Get Different Results


Zi Xiu Tang is probably the world's most popular bee pollen product, but it's not unequivocally the best. Different users of Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules report widely varying results.

Some of the reviews of Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules are simply down on anything that could be considered "Chinese pills." We'll discount those reviews, and focus on user testimonials that tell a story.

One common theme among Zi Xiu Tang users is that the results were fast and they were very positive:

  • I lost seven pounds in seven days using Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules. I didn't mind the dry mouth.
  • I needed to go from an (American) dress size 12 to a 6 before my wedding. Taking Zi Xiu Tang for a month I was able to do this. I didn't mind the stomach cramps.
  • I had a problem with "jelly belly" and bags under my eyes. When I took Zi Xiu Tang, both problems went away fast. Just be sure to use sunscreen when you go outdoors.
  • I work out six days a week but I've never been able to get rid of my pot belly. After two weeks on Zi Xiu Tang, I don't have a pot belly any more. I didn't mind the diarrhea.

You probably can imagine the negative reviews. Some people lose weight and don't mind the side effects. Other people lose weight and discontinue Zi Xiu Tang because of the side effects. And other people just experience the side effects.

The most common problems mentioned in reviews of Zi Xiu Tang are:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin
  • Diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Racing pulse
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Easy sunburn

If you don't mind that product makes you feel like you are having a heart attack as long as you lose weight, chances are you will be just fine with Zi Xiu Tang. But the real issue with Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules is the "secret ingredient" they contain other than just bee pollen.

This "bee pollen" product seems to be formulated to contain some kind of pharmaceutical-grade diuretic. The simple fact is that diuretics usually cause weight loss. If you combine a low-calorie diet, which gets rid of 3 or 4 pounds (1-2 kilos) of water weight as your liver releases stored sugar, along with a "pee pill" to make sure that the fluid is urinated away, you will definitely see results, fast.

The problem is that, while dieting does not usually affect electrolyte balances, diuretics do. Some diuretics get rid of both sodium and potassium, while others get rid of sodium but cause potassium to build up.

Too much potassium can cause muscle cramps, stomach cramps, and a "muscle cramp" of the heart. Since the label does not tell consumers even which diuretic is added to the bee pollen, there is no way of knowing whether you are getting too much or too little.

It's always a good idea to "just say no" to products you can't trust. Perhaps in the future Zi Xiu Tang will be made following good manufacturing practices (GMP) and honestly labeled. When that happens, we'll let you know. In the meantime, please consider another product that we know is pure bee pollen.
