Weekly Challenge: Herbal Detox Tea (Jan 25th)
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, herbal teas are a natural way to start 2016 off with a healthy start.
Herbal teas are not only delicious and relaxing, but they can help with everything from detoxifying your body to boosting your energy levels.
By drinking tea, you are providing your body with much-needed hydration, which most people forget to monitor during cold, winter days.
Tea can relieve insomnia, calm an upset stomach, and help fight viruses and infections.
Teas also have been proven to help protect against cancer, heart disease and diabetes; encourage weight loss, lower cholesterol and promote mental alertness.
They are chock full of healthy antioxidants. If you’re just getting started here are a few herbal tea recommendations:
Chamomile flower tea is known for its soothing and relaxing effect, and is a great source of Magnesium.
Peppermint tea soothes the digestive track, and helps with nausea and indigestion.
Dandelion tea can gently cleanse the liver, stimulate digestion, reduce fluid retention, and relieve pain and swelling.
Ginger tea is great when fighting a cold; it also helps with weight loss and to lower cholesterol.
You can find an herbal tea to help with just about anything in your body. Your challenge this week: Drink ONE cup of herbal tea before bed each night this week.
