Top 3 Detox teas for weight loss - All Natural

Spend all your dollars, run all the miles and burn all the calories you can. No weight loss plan will work if there are toxins in your body.

These toxins got the better of your body's natural defense mechanism and intruded through food, drinks, air, environment, almost everything. These toxins would be more harmful if they roam around freely in your body. So your body confines them inside fat cells.

More toxins mean more fat cells generated by your body. Less toxins means less fat cells. It's that simple.

Of course I oversimplified but you get the point.

Advantages of self made or home made detox tea

Detox tea contains plant substances that have a detoxifying effect. There are several types of detox tea available with various ingredients such as nettle, cinnamon, cardamom (cardamon), clove, mint, ginger, lime blossom, parsley, turmeric and licorice.

Detox tea can be ready-made (that you buy) or you can make it yourself (you only pay for ingredients and few minutes of your time).

  • Fresh: Health conscious people prefer own detox tea because they can use hand picked, fresh ingredients. It is easy and quick. The detox effect better because the stuff is fresh. Ready-made detox tea comes in many varieties which can be confusing for lot of people.
  • Better control and flexibility: As you start drinking tea made by yourself, you will begin to make tweaks in the quantity of each ingredient according to your taste and specific health needs.

    You can vary the quantities during specific time periods or situations. Overall you control what you drink and how you drink to detox. You can't expect this kind of flexibility with purchased item.

  • Cheap price: Obviously it's cheap. You only pay for raw ingredients and have it fresh, suited as per your own taste.

Health benefits of detox tea

Cleanses the liver: At a detox treatment, the toxins are removed from the body, or the liver is being cleaned. The toxins stored in tissues and cells affect the immune system, mood, metabolism and our ability to fight disease.

Increases energy and mental alertness: A life without toxin overload reduces fatigue and mood swings. Also increases your energy level so that you are alert and fit.

Ingredients such as lemon, rosemary and mint will rejuvenate the body and can improve brain activity. Further assist these powerful foods also in hydration after exercise or a busy day.

Supports the digestive system: The digestive system gets a chance to rest because the body is not heavy meals get inside.

Reduces Inflammation: A number of useful ingredients reduce swelling and inflammation in the body. Cucumber, Watermelon, ginger and strawberries are among these beneficial ingredients and they also ease digestion.

Promotes healthy skin by removing toxins and you get a beautiful skin too. Through daily exposure, toxins and chemicals clog your skin of all nutrients. This causes wrinkles, dryness and other signs. This improvement can by minimizing a detox and will show signs of aging so you look younger will look like.

Type of detox

Detox is short for detoxification and detoxification means. This means freeing up our body of as much toxins and possible. During a detox the liver, kidneys, intestines and the stomach are cleaned by means of certain foods (and avoiding certain others).

There are many types of detox programs. I do not recommend any specific plan because it depends on individual requirements and other factors.

An extreme detox: mostly juices and (almost) no solid food. This method of detox is not recommended. Your body needs too fast withdrawal, making you tired, but also get other symptoms like nausea, headaches and problems with bowel movement.

You can also imagine that this extreme way of detoxing is a huge shock to your functions.

A much more effective way is to follow a natural detox. This is much less intense for your body and benefits are long term, not rapid and temporary.

A natural detox: It involves eating food with high nutritional value, drinking some fruit infused water and juices. During this process, toxins are removed, added important nutrients and the amount of stress hormones considerably reduced in your body.

Through a natural detox your body works normally. You feel energetic, alert and can count on losing a few kilos of unwanted fat.
