Once you get into natural health, you cannot escape learning about DETOX! However, there is a lot more to detoxing than just a 3 days cleanse. We are constantly detoxing all of the time- it isn’t something that is done with a quick fast or cleanse. This is why it is so important to support detox on a daily basis! Detox teas can help make this easier.
Our world is overloaded with toxins, and this is one of the main reasons why many people are suffering with chronic illnesses right now. Overuse of antibiotics, toxic chemicals in everyday products, artificial ingredients, processed foods- the list of things that clog up our detox system is quite long these days! Couple this with nutritional imbalances, tons of stress, and emotional traumas and it’s no wonder why we’re all sick in some way.
One of the easiest things you can do to support healthy detox is with herbal teas. I picked 5 of my favorite herbal teas as an easy place to start for those wanting to support their detox better.
The main systems that we support with detox are liver, lymph, kidneys, and skin. If you want to read even more about proper detoxing, check out my post here.
My 5 Favorite Teas to Support Detox
All of these teas are caffeine free- an added bonus! All of them have their own recommendations on frequency of use and amount, but generally just 1 cup a day of 1 of these is great. It’s an easy way to support your body!
Dandelion root was one of my first herbal loves when I got into holistic health, and it still is a fave! Dandelion root is one of the easiest, cheapest ways to support a healthy detox system. It can help with supporting liver, kidney, and lymph health. Dandelion root can protect and heal the liver, and it can quadruple bile flow which is absolutely essential for the detox of toxins, excess hormones, and for digestion.
Traditional Medicinals is one of the BEST brands of teas that you’ll ever find. Their EveryDay Detox is a great blend of gentle herbs that help support liver function and healthy skin. The skin is a direct reflection of our detox system (especially the liver and kidneys)- so any acne, rashes, etc are a huge sign that we need detox support. This blend has burdock root, nettle leaf, cleavers, and dandelion- all powerful herbs for detox!
Gaia Herbs is another amazing brand that is top quality. This Cleanse and Detox tea is similar to the EveryDay Detox, but has quite a bit more herbs. Artichoke, roobios, burdock, fennel, and Star Anise are all included, as well as a few other amazing herbs. Just 1 cup a day is needed to give a bit of love to your liver so it can function more efficiently!
Pukka is one of the other few brands that I like and trust. This detox tea from Pukka is unique. Instead of the typical bitter herbs like dandelion and burdock, it features herbs that are actually helpful for overall digestion: aniseed, fennel, cardamon, licorice root, coriander, and celery seed. These herbs are very helpful for increasing stomach acid, bile, and digestive enzymes. When the gut is healthy, it is a lot easier for our bodies to detox!
Another awesome Pukka blend is Cleanse. Cleanse is a blend of nettle leaf, peppermint leaf, fennel seed, dandelion root, licorice root, and aloe vera inner leaf. These herbs cover a lot of bases when it comes to detox! Nettle leaf helps the liver, lymph, and kidneys the best. Peppermint is amazing for overall digestion. Aloe vera is perfect for the entire gut and detox system. Overall, this is a very helpful tea for detox!
