Black Leaves formulates the best detox teas in Australia.
These herbal blends are a delicious and aromatic range of teas that help flush toxins, bacteria and other harmful substances from our body to keep us healthy. Regular detoxification has become hugely popular in recent years. And for good reason. We are surrounded by toxins and pollutants. They are in our food, in the water we drink and in the air we breathe.
Once inside our bodies, they can cause cellular damage to organs and tissue resulting in a range of health complaints from an unhealthy, blotchy complexion to inflammation, weight gain and even cancer.
The Benefits of Detoxifying
The amazing thing about detoxifying your body regularly is the noticeable difference it makes to your skin. Those little pimples, that rash, and those dark rings around the eyes disappear, and a clearer, smoother, more youthful complexion replaces it.
You will also notice that you have more energy. A detoxification cleanses the blood, which means it can better move oxygen around the body. This also helps resolve headaches, muscular aches, and fatigue.
And with a body that is working more efficiently and a faster metabolism, you may even find you lose a little weight. And what a tragedy that would be?
A detox can usually take care of water retention issues and bloating, as well.
The Best Teas for Detoxifying
The best thing about including herbal tea in your detox program is that it easy to make, and you are taking in extra nutrients that you wouldn’t be getting if you were simply drinking water. And speaking of water, by drinking tea you are fulfilling part of the ‘obligation’ for a recommended 8 glasses of water a day. A third advantage is that there are a selection of teas containing detoxifying properties, so if you don’t like one, choose another. And another.
Some of the most well-known detox teas are:
Dandelion root tea: Cleanses the liver, helping it flush out toxins and maximize its efficiency at cleansing your blood.
Burdock root tea: This tea eliminates toxins that are responsible for inflammation and swollen joints.
Fennel seed tea: This tea is a natural diuretic which means it increases urine output, flushing toxins and other unwanted substances from your body.
Ginger tea: Kickstarts the metabolism and stimulates digestion.
Stinging Nettle tea: A natural diuretic that increases urine flow. Helps cleanse the blood and the liver.
Turmeric tea: Supports the liver by protecting it from toxins and enhances bile flow while helping to reduce the inflammation that occurs during detoxification.
Holy Basil tea: Eliminates toxins from the body but can also lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.
Green tea: This is a great way to flush out toxins from your system while adding vital nutrients to your body.
Herbal teas are a healthy and delicious way to rid your body of all the toxins and harmful substances that prevent us from being in tip-top shape. But remember, these teas are not miracle workers. They need to be drunk regularly in conjunction with a healthy diet of vegetables, lean meats and fruit, a lot of fresh water and regular exercise.
There may be withdrawal symptoms but fight through them. Once you have overcome these symptoms, you’ll be free of them and ready to live your best life.
