There are a lot of different detox drinks available on the market today, and each of them aims to get rid of toxins, add energy to sluggish routines, lose weight, and boost lowered immune systems, but not all of them are created alike.
Many commercially available options are laden with preservatives and may not actually do what they are supposed to do. This is why learning how to make homemade detox tea may be one of the best things to do to ensure actual detoxing will be happening.
There are a few options available, but the most common is herbal tea. These teas can be infused with other ingredients, but can also be prepared on their own. Each herb has a different affect on the body, and combining them together can create a super tea that will affect multiple parts of the body at once. Doing a little research on the ingredients can therefore create a custom blend that when drank every day will keep one’s body in the best shape possible.
Dandelion roots are one of the most common herbal tea ingredients, and for good reason. This tea help drain off water weight, but also boost the function of the liver and kidneys. This allows the body to work much more efficiently and when combined with cinnamon makes a great energy tea. The best part is that anyone with an organically grown lawn will usually have access to their own greens that they can dig and prepare on their own.
A popular addition to this tea is lemon for extra cleansing, berries to make it more palatable and balance PH levels, or grapefruit for extra slimming effects. Each of these is mixed together with water before being added to a pitcher with the dandelion leaves or roots, and then left to cold brew for at least 3 hours before consumption.
Another great natural detox tea is green tea. This tea has antiseptic properties, boosts the metabolism, promotes better sleep, and has a small amount of caffeine in it to stimulate the body as a whole. It is one of the best options for cleaning out one’s system and is widely available as well. Loose leaf or fresh tea leaves are the best for this use and will usually be available from a local Asian market for anyone interested in making this tea.
One final option for these teas is apple cider vinegar. When added together with any other tea, or simply mixed with honey, it helps clear out the whole body, but also promotes whole body wellness. It is often suggested for a number of medical conditions and takes on a very sweet taste when mixed with honey.
This is a tea that should be made fresh each time it is to be drank, but that is cheap and extremely easy to make. These options for homemade detox tea make it easy to create the perfect blend and ensure that one’s health is being properly looked after.
