Tea Time: Detox


I love tea, I love the different flavours and aromas available. I relish snuggling on the sofa with a warm cup in my hand. The wonderful thing about tea is that there is one for almost any occasion, whether your happy with a builder's tea, or seeking a calming camomile there is something out there for you. When I want a bit of extra goodness, I love these detoxing teas.



Green Tea:
Green Tea is most probably the healthiest drink on the planet. It is jam packed full of antioxidants and essential nutrients. Did you know that is contains polyphenols? It is a power antioxidant that can help to reduce the formation of free radicals in the body. Thus protecting the body's cells from damage and disease. The British Journal of nutrition has found that drinking three cups of the green stuff a day can help prevent cell deterioration.

Pukka Herbs: Detox
This is a lovely soothing tea for the digestive system. It contains detoxing fennel, aniseed and cardamon seed. Cardamon is a digestive add, it is also used as a treatment for mouth ulcers and depression in Ayurvedic Medicine. The flavour of this tea is much for herbal then plain peppermint.

Twinings: Detox
This has lovely flavour compared to other detoxing teas that I have found. The lemon peel is really uplifting and refreshing both in smell and taste. It also contains cleansing milk thistle and lemon myrtle which contains citral it it's leaves. Citral is full of antioxidants and is also anti-fungal. I think this tea is a great alternative if you have got bored of peppermint.

  1. Great review! I adore tea and drink it daily. I prefer real teas over herbal teas usually, but Pukka Herbs: Detox sounds pretty good, really! I already enjoy Twinings' brand, but I've yet to try their Detox tea. The lemon peel in it sounds absolutely wonderful. I love when citrus is added to teas. I come from Florida and citrus is a good part of our agricultural life. It makes me really happy when it's part of things I drink.

    1. Thank you! I love real tea also. Fruit and herbal teas are great for evenings and really anytime when you don't want caffeine. The Twinings Detox tea is really light and refreshing.x

  6. The client puts their feet in the water alongside a squeeze of salt and the exhibit (ionizer) which is associated with the control unit. The hypothesis is that, when water is ionized and part into H+ and OH-particles (and here and there into H3O+ and H2O2 particles), these particles can enter the body through the 4,000 extensive pores of the feet.

  7. Beside your exercise center sessions, consider doing some cardiovascular exercises, such as running, strolling or swimming 4 to 5 times each week. fashionhandbagireland
