Do detox teas work? If you’re on our website, you’re probably hoping they do, but remember, not all detox teas are created equal. It really depends on the ingredients inside your tea and the plan you follow. First, let’s break down detox tea.
The Benefits of Detox Tea
Black and green tea, the two teas most often used for detoxing, have incredible health benefits. Drinking tea each and every day has been shown to help lower your risk of stroke, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Research has also shown that individuals who drink tea have a better mood, higher mental performance, more energy, and better weight loss.
Tea is also a great source of antioxidants. In fact, one cup of green tea has the same amount of antioxidants as one serving of vegetables. Antioxidants clean up cellular damage caused by free radicals, which can reduce the impact of environmental toxins on your body.
But does detox tea work?
The Truth about Detox Tea
Like we said above, not all detox teas are the same and neither are all detoxing plans. One thing to watch out for is the ingredients included in your detox tea.
Many detox teas contain the herb senna. In large amounts, as often seen in detox teas, senna is a laxative, which means that while it can be helpful over the short term, taking it too long can cause vomiting, diarrhoea, electrolyte imbalance, and dehydration. The good news is that our Digestive Herbs, formerly Tiny Tea is completely laxative-free.
So, let’s say you try Digestive Herbs, formerly Tiny Tea or another detox tea without senna, is that all you need to do? No. The truth is that the most important part of your detox is what else you consume. An all-liquid diet is not a good idea.
We firmly believe that a holistic approach is best. While our tea is filled with ingredients like cassia seed, lotus leaf, and barley which work on your digestive system for cleansing, it’s not all your body needs. We also recommend following our Eating Plan for a full body approach.
Tea is only medicinal and detoxifying if your diet isn’t taxing your system. To truly detoxify your body, you need to cut out processed and fried foods, and increase your intake of lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats (like avocado and salmon).
Detox Tea: More than Losing Weight
We also believe a detox tea regime should be about more than losing weight. While everyone enjoys dropping a few pounds, we’re most focused on you being healthy. That’s why Digestive Herbs, formerly Tiny Tea works to restore your body back to its original health overall.
We believe in striving for optimal health and, for most people, as they get healthier, they lose weight, but that shouldn’t be the only goal. We believe that you should also have more energy, clearer skin, and less bloating. You deserve the whole package.
Our detox tea works in concert with your body to help you absorb the nutrients you need to feel better. If you’re ready to improve your overall health by modifying your diet and exercising, then you’re ready to drink Digestive Herbs, formerly Tiny Tea three times a day.
