Or how to be healthy, full of energy and in a good mood all the time
Those of you who have chosen a healthy lifestyle and balance a healthy diet with regular exercise, detox tea is a natural ingredient to support the effect of your daily efforts. Well, actually, we can no longer call them an effort-but a pleasant routine, hopefully. Be healthy, full of energy and in a good mood is the most natural thing in the world. And if someone is trying to convince you otherwise, don’t believe them!
If, on the other hand, you are one of those people who suffer from a bad or rapidly changing mood, experience anxiety or depression, headache, sleep disorders, brain fog, inability to concentrate, nausea or vomiting, constant fatigue, lack of energy … Then it’s time for a serious detox, combined with a complete change not only in food but general life habits. In our bodies, harmful toxins cause a number of reactions that neutralize the action of essential vitamins and minerals, with which the body functions healthily.
Detox with tea today is a popular method that can support effectively our bodies’ natural cleansing processes. They occur mainly in our liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, lymph and skin. By expelling accumulated toxins, we improve not only our intestinal health, but also our overall immune system.
But which teas are best for detox?
Detox with tea – green teas
Let’s talk about our favorite green tea first. Have you already tasted our Tea of the Month – Chinese Sencha? You already know well how beneficial this green elixir is. In short, what green tea gives you:
- boosts metabolism thanks to the antioxidants in it and so the body burns calories even when at rest
- improves immune system and blocks up to 80% of viruses and bacteria that attack us through the oral cavity, and could stop even the new Covid-19
- can prevent certain types of cancers, arthritis and diabetes
- hydrates as successfully as water
- can prevent degenerative and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s
Apart from our aromatic Chinese Sencha, you can include in your detox with tea programe our amazing Matcha Bio. When we drink green matcha tea, we swallow the whole leaf, and with it all of its beneficial nutrients. When we prepare any other high-quality tea leaves (not ground to a powder like matcha), we absorb up to 40% of their beneficial ingredients. In matcha there are between 10 to 20 times more antioxidants than in other green tea leaves. This means that if you drink 1 cup of matcha, you have received the benefits of 10 to 20 cups of other green tea – depending on the quality of green tea you use for comparison.
Bonus benefit: higher doses of caffeine can have diuretic effect. Diuretics cause the body to excrete water in the form of urine and feces. So you also lose water weight. There is more caffeine in matcha than in regular green tea. A 70 ml cup of Matcha Bio contains up to 40 mg of caffeine.
Fresh energy with your morning cup of good tea
Your detox with tea program should consist of two complementary parts. Your morning cup of tea should be a refreshing one, and your evening cup of tea should be a cleansing one. In the morning you should concentrate on replacing the vitamins and electrolytes that your body has lost after the evening internal organs cleansing tea. If you skip this step, you will not have the full effect of the detox with tea program. Morning tea should have high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and other beneficial ingredients.
Some experts recommend starting the day with boiled water mixed with lemon slices or squeezed lemon juice, as well as a little ginger. This combination awakens your internal organs and gives an initial boost to your metabolism.
You can follow this with an energizing and refreshing cup of delicious green tea just twenty minutes later. Or decaffeinated tea, rich in antioxidants such as White Chocolate and Vanilla – Rooibos or Longevity with green rooibos. Rooibos is suitable for detox because it contains polyphenols and promotes heart health while regulating cholesterol and stabilizing blood pressure.
If you do prefer tea instead of simple boiled water, choose our Citrus & Ginger. You can add lemon juice or lemon slices to it. In this tea, the effective combination of lemon and ginger is enhanced by the soft aroma and delicate taste of lemongrass.
During the day you can make one or more cups of green tea, as you wish. This will enhance the detox effect.
Evening cleansing of the colon, liver and kidneys with herbal tea
It’s not as scary as it sounds! But it is necessary to take the second step of cleansing the internal organs, especially the colon, in the evening with a cup of suitable tea. It is important that this tea should have a laxative effect. But not too strong! In general, detox and cleansing teas aim to relieve the feeling of bloating and fluid retention.
That’s why you can find different herbal blends that have not only a cleansing effect, but are also anti-inflammatory or tonic. Many of these teas have ingredients such as dandelion, nettle, lemongrass, licorice, mint, chamomile, burdock, fennel, ginger, turmeric and other antioxidant-rich herbs or roots.
Our Fast Detox tea helps the main organs that eliminate toxins – the liver, kidneys, but also the skin. It has been made from dried green leaves of several herbs. And it still carries the freshness and regenerative power of spring.
Blackberry contributes towards normal digestion and its leaves contain vitamin C which contributes towards strong immune system and helps tissue repair. Silver birch’s leaves in soft green color contribute towards normal function of the urinary tract. This is due to their diuretic effect.
White horehound has tiny leaves and numerous white flowers. It also boasts a number of benefits for our body. Among them is supporting the normal function of the liver and gall bladder.
It may be a surprise for many that we have included not strawberry fruits but leaves in our incredible tea for natural body detox. Strawberry leaves have also been used for centuries in traditional medicine in decoctions with various healing purposes. They also boost metabolism.
Let us not forget common dandelion that never stops to surprise us with its benefits. All its parts – its bright yellow flowers, its succulent slender stems, its fresh sea green leaves – bring many benefits to our body.
Dandelion has a detoxifying effect and just like strawberry leaves regulates metabolism. It is diuretic and if you suffer from liver diseases, you might prepare a tea from it.
Detox with tea – how long do you need to do it
Depending on how you feel, you could follow a similar detox with tea program for 7, 14 or 28 days. But you must make sure that you change your eating habits as well. It is best to consult a specialist before undertaking a radical change. And even if you don’t want a radical change, think about how you can do even the slightest change in the most gentle way for your body. The idea is to help your organism breathe again, not to suffocate it or overstress with with a sudden and complete change.
The health professional that you consult may think that you need a stricter detox program with an aim to cleanse the liver and kidneys primarily. The specialist’s idea would be to get rid of toxins such as heavy metals as quickly as possible. He or she may even recommend a strict diet within a shorter period of time. Or he or she can advise you the opposite. That is, to concentrate on cleansing all the organs that expel toxins from the body in a longer period of time and in a smoother way. Trust those professionals and don’t forget to include some really good teas in your program!
