Surprising Benefits of Detox Tea


Detox tea is a drink that you can drink to help your body naturally rid itself of unwanted toxins. Different ingredients are used to promote this process, but typically, detox teas rely on herbs like dandelion root and burdock root.  It's suggested that you drink up to four cups of detox tea daily, but you can also try drinking one to two cups before bed.

Detox teas are blends made from ingredients such as rosemary, sage, and dandelion leaves known to support healthy digestion. Some people believe that these ingredients work by propping up the liver's ability to flush toxins out of the body through urine production naturally. Others think they help cleanse the colon and intestines of any built-up fecal matter and bacteria. And yet, other people enjoy their detox tea because it provides a refreshing beverage with no caffeine content.

Regardless of the reasoning behind drinking these beverages, you should be aware of the potential dangers linked to them. While there is nothing inherently harmful about the ingredients used in detox teas, some people believe that some concoctions could bring on specific symptoms. For example, dandelion and burdock are both considered diuretics and laxatives. If too much of these ingredients are consumed, they could lead to dehydration and irritated skin.
