Detoxification, or the process of cleansing your body from within, has been a highly sought-after practice throughout time. Not only does detoxification help to strengthen your immune system and fight off disease, but it is also highly recommended for maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle and keeping your body functioning at its optimal condition.
What is Detox Tea?
Throughout history, people all over the world have considered their regular cup of tea brewed from the leaves of the Camellia Sinesis plant as a beverage that accompanies a multitude of health benefits. For instance, studies show that green and black tea carry polyphenolic compounds known to be beneficial towards preventing cardiovascular diseases. White tea is considered effective in fighting against cancer due to its high levels of antioxidants, and Oolong tea is noted for containing I-theanine, which can help prevent cognitive diseases.
While this is so, 'detox tea' does not distinctively represent tea made with the Camellia Sinesis plant, as much of the time, it refers to other herbal infusions, which aren't considered 'true tea'. Herbal tea generally contains herbs, spices, fruits, roots and may or may not contain tea leaves. Based on the ingredients they carry, they may present a wide variety of health benefits. Additionally, herbal infusions that do not have tea leaves are also free of caffeine and are hence known to generate calming properties.
How to pick the proper detox tea
Detox tea is much sought after today due to the weight loss properties that it claims to encompass. Much of the fad diets that revolve around detox teas are filled with laxative and diuretic substances, enabling the loss of a few pounds over a short period of time. Hence, they're not considered beneficial over a long period and may even cause harm to your body in the long run.
This is why it is essential to pay close attention to the ingredients included within your 'detox tea'. It is wise to avoid those made for fad diets that make you lose weight fast. Instead, opt for more natural solutions such as herbal infusions or regular green/black tea.

A herbal detox cleanse is further able to provide your immune system with a boost, as natural ingredients such as turmeric assists in the removal of toxins from the body. This, in turn, enables the body to generate and maintain an optimal immune system.
