Along with a healthy diet that has removed harmful toxins, drinking detox teas can enable your body to heal and continue to be healthy in the future. What do detox teas do?
1. They Boost Metabolism
Metabolism is one of those words that is used frequently but many people don’t really understand what is meant by it. They simply assume that they either have a “fast” or a “slow” metabolism and there’s nothing they can do about it.
Your metabolism - the body’s ability to break down and use food and drink properly - is actually impacted by what you eat and drink and how active you are. And recent research has shown that certain ingredients in tea can not only maintain a healthy metabolism but boost it as well.

Combine detox teas with clean eating and regular exercise and you may experience significant improvements in weight management.
5. They Support Healthy Digestion
When your body is loaded down with toxins and your organs aren’t functioning the way they should, poor digestion can be a result. Many people suffer from IBS, with regular occurrences of sto
