Detoxing with tea is done by drinking herbal teas that are used to remove toxins from the body, through supporting the function of vital organs within the body. Most detox tea blends are based on traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine techniques, as well as other forms of herbalism.
Detox teas usually support the liver, can be used for laxative effects, and overall toxin elimination.
Our detox tea blend is designed to balance the body naturally using a blend of herbs such as red clover, dandelion and nettle, all of which contain detoxifying properties. This particular blend acts as a natural blood cleanser, which will eliminate toxins without getting rid of important nutrients.
Ingredients and their properties:
Rooibos - Rooibos contains two different types of antioxidants (polyphenols & aspalathin) which have been shown to lower the body's production of cortisol (the hormone involved in stress).
Dandelion (leaf and root) - Cleanses the liver and kidneys to eliminate toxins from the bloodstream. Facilitates proper energy flow by breaking up obstructions in the urinary tract, therefore acting as a diuretic/urinary tonic by eliminating toxins from the urinary tract. Stimulates the flow of bile to improve digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Nettle - Nettle helps to flush harmful chemicals and excess liquids out of the body. Nettle is also known as a “spring tonic”, which prevents allergic reactions, gives the body a reset and provides the body with many beneficial vitamins and nutrients.
Red Clover - Red clover is mostly used as a depurative/detoxifying herb. It assists in the removal of toxins within the fluids and tissues of the body. It is very useful in the treatment of any chronic inflammation of skin, muscles and joints.
Burdock root - Burdock Root is commonly known to aid in the detoxification process of the skin, kidneys, and mucous membranes throughout the body. It contains cleansing, diuretic, and diaphoretic (sweat-inducing) properties, which helps with eliminating waste. It is also known to aid in easing symptoms of arthritis.
This detox tea blend is a great addition to any daily or weekly routines. It is great to have on hand for those times you are feeling bloated, tired, like you are coming down with something, or you just enjoy keeping up with a healthy, immune-boosting, and overall supportive daily practice.
