Why detox tea is so great
The human body is naturally designed to detox itself and flush out toxins as outside free radicals that leak in, environmental air quality, poor eating and drinking habits cause havoc on the body. These outside factors all play a part as to how efficiently the body is able to naturally detox. Luckily there are certain foods we can eat and drink to support and detoxify the body. Most detox teas are formulated to support optimal liver function and protection which helps reduce bloating, stimulate the liver, and digestion which can also promote weight loss.
