Top Teas for Detoxing and Digestive SupportTop Teas for Detoxing and Digestive Support

When thinking about a detox, most people may think of their liver and kidneys. However, our intestines are one of the main elimination pathways in our bodies. If properly digesting what we take in becomes difficult, we can find it more difficult to process waste and impurities through our body adequately. Many organs work together during digestion, so ensuring they are all performing their best by detoxing and helping where you can is vital.

There are a variety of ways to help combat digestive dysfunction, including natural ingredients. Often, you can find teas containing these things to help make them easier to consume. Here are a few of the best teas for detoxing and supporting your digestive process.

  • Dandelion Root – Far from just a common weed, the bitter taste of dandelion root helps stimulate your liver and support overall digestion. When roasted, the bitterness goes away slightly, but the digestive benefits remain, increasing bile production and encouraging the production of digestive juices that aid in breaking down fibres and fatty foods.
  • Peppermint – Peppermint tea is refreshing and delicious and full of essential oils. It is best when consumed after a meal as it helps to soothe and alleviate any discomfort in your stomach. The slight sweetness is a great way to finish a meal as well.
  • Lemon – Lemon tea, often simply lemon juice in hot water, is a great detoxifier. It has a large amount of vitamin c and is a natural diuretic, encouraging the release of wastes from your body. It also helps cleanse the liver, flush out toxins and aid in the production of digestive juices. You can combine this with other ingredients such as honey and ginger to add even more benefits.
  • Ginger – Ginger has been known to calm down digestive discomfort for years. Ginger tea can help you to relieve indigestion or prevent and treat nausea.

There are many natural methods you can use to ensure your body stays healthy and performing it’s best.
