Now, let us focus more on herbal detox tea. Most people who find organic detox successful combine their detox tea in their detox diet to make it become more effective.
Detox tea comes with the name ‘skinny tea’, ‘weight loss tea’, and ‘cleansing tea’. These tea are made from steeped roots and herbs immersed in warm water, which can help the kidneys remove toxins and the liver to improve its function.
An example of a natural detox tea and its health benefits are the following:
Green tea is the most efficient detox tea—its antioxidant levels are higher than any variant of detox tea. Green tea contains polyphenols, an antioxidant that can kill cancer cells. No matter what form the green tea is consumed, it is healthy, thus, when looking for green tea in the supermarket or farm make sure it is organically produced.
Green tea extracts can be boring, add a little flavor by mixing it with a fruit juice or making a smoothie with the green tea.
This tea comes from the leaves and roots of a dandelion plant. Dandelion tea contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D with a minimum amount of potassium, magnesium, and zinc. The antioxidant anti-inflammatory properties of this tea aids to be a detoxifying agent for the liver that can improve the flow of bile. Weight loss is promoted by this tea as it has a laxative effect, and it can replenish the loss of electrolytes because it contains a high potassium level.
MILK THISTLE TEA
Sylmarin is a combination of three flavonoids, it compromises 80 percent of the content of this tea. It aids in the repair and protection of the liver cells and reduces liver inflammation. Thus, if you want a detox tea that can aid the function of your liver, consume milk thistle tea on a daily basis. Other than its benefits for the liver, it can treat disorders of the gallbladder.
