Herbal Teas That Detox [1]

Herbal teas that detox tend to be popular this time of year. But detox needs are different for everyone, so how do you know which one is right for you?

Why Detox? Our bodies, through the liver,  have the natural means to flush out toxins. Adding a detox tea with the right herbs can help provide support for your liver and release more of the toxins.

What Herbs Support a Detox? There are several herbs that are reported to aide in detoxing the body. Here are some of the ingredients you’ll find and why you may want to try them.

Milk Thistle – The active ingredient found in milk thistle is silymarin, an antioxidant that protects against cell damage and stimulates repair of liver tissue. Because milk thistle helps repair the liver, it is often recommended when you’ve had a bit too much to drink. Try: Get Clean by Republic of Tea [2] or Celestial Seasonings Natural Detox Wellness Tea [3]

Dandelion Root –  The root of the dandelion is reported to support both liver and kidney functions. It acts as a diuretic so choose it to provide relief for minor digestive problems. Try:  Yogi Detox [4] or Mighty Leaf Organic Detox Infusion

Chicory Root - Chicory root has a mild laxative effect, increases bile from the gallbladder, and decreases swelling. Got bloat? You’ll want to try Traditional Medicinals Everyday Detox [5]

 What herbal teas do you use to detox? Have you found it work?
