[Homeroast] OT: coffee that helps you "slim down"?

Senna is a laxative (presumably, constipation is dead weight); ling zhi is a mushroom with properties similar to shiitake (supposedly anti-microbial, liver-protective and anti-tumor--presumably the liver function assists in processing toxins out of the body. It tastes bitter, so coffee would be a logical vehicle for it.  Wild rose powder has antioxidant properties due to its vitamin C content.

My guess is that if the stuff actually works it's because of the laxative.  And the weight loss is no doubt extremely temporary.  Any other metabolic benefit derives from the coffee itself.  You'd get that benefit out of plain coffee.
