Our bodies are constantly being faced with toxins in the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the grounds we walk on.
Incorporating this detox tea to your daily diet will ensure you rid yourself of the toxins, waste, and parasites you consume on an ongoing basis.
You probably know that obesity is a worldwide epidemic. The latest figures tell it all– and it’s only getting worse. It’s widely known that just one cup of tea can prevent strokes, arthritis, tooth decay and even keep cancer at bay.
While it’s regarded as nature’s tranquilizer for its soothing properties, the brew also has another great benefit– it helps shed weight.
Scientists have shown that tea has high levels of compounds that battle the absorption of fat.
Each of the teas for weight loss has its own individual, magic properties, from dimming your hunger hormones to upping your calorie burn to– literally– melting the fat that’s stored in your fat cells. Oh, and they can also help reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes too.
What I do believe that they play a huge role– most effectively in the role of appetite suppression and detoxification.
There are several different herbs that have proven to increase metabolism and/or suppress the appetite– naturally helping us achieve our weight loss goals.
The Best Weight Loss Herbs
As mentioned above, there are countless herbs and remedies in the realm of weight loss.
These that I share with you are simply the ones that I have found to be most beneficial and useful in my efforts! Herbs such as:
Nettle leaves contain a huge amount of chlorophyll, making this herb a significant source of antioxidant vitamins, such as C and A, along with many minerals. Nettle leaf is also considered a blood purifier due to it’s ability to increase the proper function of the liver and the kidneys.
Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng) Root
While it primarily works on the nervous system, in general eleuthero root is well known as a powerful adaptogen– that is an herb that helps the body properly respond to stress. Reducing anxiety and balancing the appetite.
Senna leaves are best known as a natural laxative.
Dandelion leaves neutralizes acid in the blood, which makes it one the best remedies for detoxification and blood purification. And similar to Nettle leaf, it too contains high quantities of nourishing vitamins and minerals. I love dandelion leaf especially for it’s ability to cleanse the body and help with my skin’s complexion.
Is one of the most mucilaginous herbs. Highly nutritive … it also works to soothe the entire digestive system by reducing inflammation. Likewise, marshmallow root is a wonderful diuretic.
Slippery Elm Bark
Slippery elm bark contains many of the mucilaginous properties as marshmallow root– and it helps bring to balance to the body by absorbing toxins in the bowel.
Containing high concentrations of digestive enzymes, papaya leaf is an excellent tonic for the digestive system as a whole … and a wonderful herbal support for weight loss.
Sweet Cinnamon Bark
A well-known for centuries due to it’s anti-biotic and anti-fungal properties, cinnamon is a wonderful remedy that supplies excellent flavor. Moreover, cinnamon is excellent for our digestive systems and works to warm the body.
Ginger root, a trusted cold/flu fighter, assists the body in the removal of excess toxins. It too, cleanses the digestive tract and the kidneys as well as increases circulation by warming the body.
Aid in digestion and help to regulate the appetite. They also positively effect kidney function and work to cleanse the liver.
And the best way I have found to consume the benefits of these herbs … tea.
