How to detox my body with tea?
You will find so many websites and magazines referring to Tea Detox but you might want to know a bit more about what is it exactly.
Why doing a Tea Detox?
A tea detox essentially consists in introducing tea in your daily diet to get rid of some toxins in your body and eventually help you losing weight. Tea contains a lot of antioxidants that helps you fight age, pollution or even stress. Therefore, a well-planned tea detox can have positive effects on your health.
How to choose your Tea?
Black tea would be a good choice, but green tea is the most concentrated in antioxidants. That’s why it is usually recommended to use green tea for a Tea detox. However, it doesn’t mean you should stick to green tea only. You can as well add other natural plants and roots to your tea to boost the detox effects such as lemongrass, ginger, lemon, etc.
How to optimize your Tea Detox?
Even if a Tea Detox is not very complicated to do, it is still important to follow few rules. The first rule is not to overdrink tea, especially if you are sensitive to caffeine. The right amount of tea for a Detox is between 500ml and 1L maximum. More than this you might feel stressed and not being able to sleep properly.
It is also important to keep drinking water along with the tea. Rather drink water while you eating and keep the tea for before or after. The best periods to drink tea is in the morning and in the evening.
If you are doing a Detox to lose weight, drinking tea only will not be enough to see proper results. Make sure to adopt a healthy and balance diet and try to exercise a little bit to boost the properties of the tea in your whole body.
