Cleanses and detoxification of the body do not conjure up pleasant images in most people’s minds. Yes, the body can get sluggish from a build up of chemicals and toxins. Systems can get backed up and discomfort can be the result, but detoxification can be done gradually without any inconvenience. Many herbal teas can flush toxins out of the body gradually with regular use. There is no need to spend a weekend indoors, or take a day or two off from work, or even stay home for the evening. A cup or two of the right kind of tea a few times a week can do the trick.
Ridding the kidneys and liver of built-up toxins, for example, is one of the positive effects of dandelion root tea. The raw and organic type is more potent that the roasted root type, so be sure to find the right one. The tea also has high doses of nutrients like Vitamins A, B, C, and D, antioxidants, and minerals like iron, zinc, and potassium. It has no calories, no genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and no caffeine. Natural flavors are usually added to improve the taste, which can be a bit intense. Hibiscus is one of the flavors added and it also helps to regulate blood pressure. Cinnamon is another flavor and it regulates blood sugar, and reduces bad cholesterol. The tea is very healthy and can be enjoyed hot or cold.
People do not have to switch to dandelion tea to the point of exclusion of all other beverages to realize the benefits. Drink a cup at lunch or enjoy some in the evening. One cup a day will make people start to feel better. Dandelion root tea also helps the body absorb nutrients from other healthy beverages and foods. A glass of iced tea and a salad for lunch can do wonders for the body. Drastic measures do not have to be taken to take care of the body. Small changes over time that are consistent can really make a difference in how people look and feel. Add in some regular exercise three times a week and you will begin to feel years younger.
