Best Detox Teas That Work Of 2017

Winter is now here it is cold outside and as the temperature drops so does our immunity. This leaves us vulnerable to colds and the flu, hence why they call it a ‘cold and flu season’.

Here are some great teas that will help you stay warm, flush the toxins out of your body, and help you lose weight at the same time. See below for the best detox teas of 2017 that work.

1) Dandelion Tea

Dandelion tea isn’t just an annoying weed that multiples all over our lawn. There are actually some great health benefits this weed offers. It has been used for centuries in other parts of the world in the middle east. It is rich in vitamin A, C, D, zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium. Zinc is an important component in regulating our immunity, so dandelion is a great way to beat the winter chills.


Benefits

Dandelion tea has been known to:

  • Prevent diabetes
  • Stop UI infections
  • Reduce Bloating
  • Flush the liver and the kidneys
  • Aids in weight loss

How to Use:

If you pick your own dandelions make sure to avoid areas where weed-killer and pesticides are sprayed. You can pick off the tops of the heads and use the petals. You could also use the dandelion root in your tea as this has many beneficial qualities.

To prepare: Wash and cut the dandelion root off, boil hot water, and steep the root in the water. To add more flavours add a few petals and a teaspoon of honey.

Drink this daily and you will be flushing out your organs efficiently as well as going to the bathroom a lot to help get rid of those toxins.

 

2) Turmeric Tea

Drink this once a week to keep your immunity up.

 

3) Kombucha Tea

Kombucha is right up there with the top teas for detoxing and weight loss. You may have seen it in health food stores with a variety of flavours to choose from. It can taste great once you get familiar with the fizziness.

Kombucha is derived from sweet tea that produces a bacteria culture that is fermented giving it a fizzy bubbly taste. It may sound gross, but it is extremely healthy to drink.

Benefits

Kombucha tea has been known to:

  • Prevent Cancer
  • Improves cardiovascular health

  • Aids in Weight loss
  • Helps with digestive issues
  • A good source of probiotics

How to Use:

Kombucha can be pretty pricey when purchasing them in health food stores. You will be expected to pay anywhere to $3-$5 a bottle.

However, you can make it from home and produce as much as you want at a very reasonable price.

The video below from Cultures from Health does a great job at describing how to make your own Kombucha from the comfort of your home.
