The fact of the matter is very simple, we deal with toxins in every corner of our daily lives.
There’s no need to panic. In fact, there’s a simple solution to ridding your body any harmful agents that may be camping around in your body. There are many benefits of drinking tea. Tea brings people together and also purifies the body and spirit.
Here are four of the planet’s most beneficial teas for detoxing.
Red Clover Tea

They say good things are made to last. And burdock’s 100-year-old life span goes to show this is true. This 100-year-old tea was originally used to purify the blood, but now it’s used as one of the most powerful detoxing teas known today.
Burdock is an herb that helps purge harmful toxins through urine. So, you know that the detox is working if you’re frequently urinating. Not only does this tea help detox, it also makes your body more efficient.
Burdock does more than just cleanse your body. It strengthens the immune system and purifies the blood as well. The reason it can do all this is because of an organic compound called polyacetylene.
Even though burdock is very powerful, it’s hard to find. So make sure if you plan on using this tea, you find a reliable place that stocks it.
Milk Thistle Tea
This 2000-year-old remedy is a favorite of naturalists. The reason is that milk thistle takes care of several parts of your body when it’s ridding it of those harmful toxins.
Your liver and your digestive system work together while detoxing. Your liver cleanses your body of the harmful toxins while your digestive system kicks them out. So, when you have a plan to detox in mind, those two parts of your body should be at the top of your list.
The great thing about milk thistle tea is, it takes care of both parts of your body. An organic active compound called silymarin allows this tea to destroy all harmful compounds living in your liver and digestive system.
Cayenne Pepper Tea
Cayenne peppers have been around for a while. In fact, people have added them to their food for health benefits for years. But, they never used the pepper to its full potential. When the pepper is added to tea, its health benefits go directly to the circulatory system helping cleanse it.
It also helps regulate your blood sugar, digest food, and kick start your metabolism. A bonus is cayenne peppers are an antifungal food, so they assist you in your detox anyway. However, the best way to detox with cayenne pepper is to put it in tea because it offers the most health benefits. Even if it makes your nose run, it will help you detox through mucus and phlegm.
Drinking a hot glass of water with a squeezed lemon and 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to detox every morning, and your body will purging free radicals on a daily basis.
The cliché, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” has survived the test of time because it’s true. And, when it comes to keeping your body clean, teas are the ideal ounce for prevention.
