It seems that these days there is no shortage of diets, programs, and fixes for weight loss and health improvement. Most people feel they could shed a few pounds or improve their overall well-being, but don’t really know where to begin.

When you detox, you give your body time to heal by replacing your typical foods and drinks with foods and drinks that are meant to keep your body healthy. A great part of a detox can be detox teas, which can replace your go-to addictive drinks (think soda or coffee) with a natural, healthy alternative.

The Teami Detox Pack is an easy and effective detox program that anyone can do! 

What is a “Detox”?

Detoxification, in the strictest sense, is the removal of harmful toxins from the body. It’s often used in relation to the cessation of drug and alcohol abuse, and is medically aided in a rehab facility or hospital. 

Think of a food detox as the removal of harmful sugars and carbs from the body, and aiding the body by giving it the “medicine” of good, natural, healthy foods and drinks. When you think of a detox as something you do FOR your body, as opposed to something you take from it, you can see it as a positive step in the right direction.

How Detox Teas Can Help

Along with a healthy diet that has removed harmful toxins, drinking detox teas can enable your body to heal and continue to be healthy in the future. What do detox teas do?

1. They Boost Metabolism

Metabolism is one of those words that is used frequently but many people don’t really understand what is meant by it. They simply assume that they either have a “fast” or a “slow” metabolism and there’s nothing they can do about it.

Your metabolism - the body’s ability to break down and use food and drink properly - is actually impacted by what you eat and drink and how active you are. And recent research has shown that certain ingredients in tea can not only maintain a healthy metabolism but boost it as well.

2. They Suppress Overeating

It’s important to eat a healthy diet with the right amount of nutrients and calories. One hindrance to this can be that we’ve trained our bodies to expect more food than is actually needed. 

As previously mentioned, refined sugar can be toxic for the body, and one way in which it hurts you is that it causes you to crave food when you aren’t hungry. Drinking tea, rather than your go-to soda or latte, will fill you up with good, healthy nutrients, without leaving you with cravings an hour later. 

3. They Decrease Water Retention and Bloating

Water retention occurs when excess fluid is built up in the body, causing you to swell and bloat. Drinking a diuretic, like tea, can prevent this buildup from happening and help your body to flush the toxins that keep you feeling bloated. 

The herbs found in detox teas, as well as the diuretic properties, make them an excellent choice for decreasing your water retention and preventing bloating.

4. They Aid Weight Management

While there is much that goes into weight loss, including a healthy, balanced diet and exercise, detox teas have been shown to reduce cravings and boost metabolism, as previously mentioned, leading to a greater chance of weight loss and overall weight management.

Combine detox teas with clean eating and regular exercise and you may experience significant improvements in weight management.

5. They Support Healthy Digestion

When your body is loaded down with toxins and your organs aren’t functioning the way they should, poor digestion can be a result.
