Detox & Cleanse Series: Teas
With the summer sun fading and the cold winter winds picking up this January, we need warm and comforting drinks that keep our immune systems strong through the changing seasons.
Detox and herbal teas have grown in popularity all over the Western world. With a wide variety of types and flavours, it makes a healthier alternative to coffee and can help with a variety of bodily issues.
You’ve probably noticed the odd influencer on Instagram promoting a detox tea that helps them balance out the days they aren’t eating junk food. So what’s the deal? Detox tea is a special kind of tea that nourishes the body and over time filters out the toxins that build up in the body. Especially in our day and age, where there are more pollutants in the environment than ever before and drinking tea is an easy yet ideal way to counter these toxins.
Detox Tea is easily one of the healthiest drinks you could have – it’s just as hydrating as water, has zero calories, yet it’s delicious and packed with antioxidants, metabolism boosters and many more benefits. Not hard to see why it’s being applauded for its health benefits all around the world.
Detoxification is essential to keep your liver functioning properly so that it does not become clogged. A poor functioning liver will not be able to keep up with the constant attack of environmental pollutants that need to be banished from your body.
In order to truly Teatox your body, follow a pattern of eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains that are fresh, raw and organic, while cutting processed and fried foods, eliminating sugar, caffeine, fats and other toxic substances. Once your diet is clean and gentle on your body, simple detoxifying teas can begin to enhance your natural organ function.
