Just how did our Digestive Herbs (formerly TinyTea) go so viral, so fast?
In all honesty, it was for the wrong reasons; weight loss.
It’s no secret that our Digestive Herbs are able to incur weight loss for many who consume. Which of course, is never a negative in terms of health benefits – however, it is not what we wished the blend rose to fame for. Because clearly, plenty of negative connotations run alongside the words ‘weight loss’.
The intent of Digestive Herbs as you may have previously read, is to allow the digestive system to function full stop. Nothing more, nothing less. The beauty being, when the digestive system is operating, it won’t accumulate phlegm and damp, it won’t be stagnant, it won’t retain fluid and it will digest food. And you guessed it, all of the above benefits also mean absence of weight gain or for many, an increase in weight loss.
So, because details are key when it comes to explaining the body in TCM, we will hand it to TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain to discuss further.
“Digestive Herbs is a blend designed to strengthen and gently cleanse the digestive system. From a Chinese medicine perspective, when the Spleen and Stomach organ systems (centre of digestive system) are weak or their function is compromised, it can lead to retention and accumulation of fluid and waste (phlegm and damp), which can cause weight gain. The goal of Digestive Herbs is to restore your body back to optimal health by focusing on digestive functioning. When digestive health is optimal, excess fluid and waste can be effectively cleared out from the body and excess weight is shed.
We don’t you to be reliant on laxative teas or pharmaceutical laxatives, which only further deplete the digestive system. We created Digestive Herbs to instead focus on improving digestive function to absorb all the necessary nutrients and to be able to metabolise and eliminate what is not needed for health overall and weight balance”.
Yours in a functioning system,
