6 Teas that DETOX Your Body and Mind

Drinking a cup of tea everyday is not just for the British

Garlic Tea


The benefits of garlic are widely known, but when you drink it as a tea it is definitely going to work to help cleanse the body, due to the specific vitamins it contains that helps in this area. It also contains sulfur, which you may associate with the smell of rotten eggs or a processing plant, but in regards to helping your body detoxify itself, there are few other ways that are as effective. One thing that might be a little off putting is that classic garlic taste. It’s not as bad as if you eat straight garlic, but it’s still there.

Ginger Tea


Ginger is a very cleansing root, and when you brew it up as a tea it can actually be a satisfying beverage with a tart taste. The nice thing is that even though it has a sharp taste, it is gentle on the body, so you don’t have to worry about long-term use. This can easily become a daily detox tea that you can have each morning to start the day, as a midday pick-me-up, or as an warm up before dinner. You can use this as part of a detox program as well, if they recommend drinking detoxifying teas.

Green Tea


The benefits of green tea have been written about extensively, and there is plenty of scientific support behind it. This means that it isn’t just a few anecdotal recommendations to drink this, it’s basically proven that at least a cup of green tea should be consumed daily for optimal health. There are simply too many antioxidants in it that help the body combat free radicals and other toxins to pass this up. The benefit to all of this detoxing? The body naturally rids itself of excess weight. Bonus!
