Green tea as a partner in detoxication
We live in a time when minimal physical activity, stress, lack of sleep, unbalanced meals and fast food become an inevitable part of our everyday lives.
The arrival of spring is a perfect time to devote yourself to your body and help it recover and purify through detoxification. Antioxidants from plants are a powerful ally and a great help when it comes to cleansing the body of harmful toxins accumulated during the colder months. Why not use the power of green tea on your detox journey?
GREEN TEA SUPPRESSES APETITE
Green tea is the type of tea which is most commonly mentioned in reference to detoxification. It is packed full of antioxidants and catechins, active ingredients that help with weight loss and prevent accumulation of fat.
If you are wondering why and how green tea aids weight loss so greatly, the answer lies in its regular consumption which suppresses appetite. Green tea is also rich in polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that help your body eliminate unwanted toxins.
GINNGER FOR FASTER METABOLISM
Our green tea comes in a variety of combinations, including with ginger, which was originally used against the flu and common cold. It’s interesting to note that ginger helps to reduce hunger pangs and speeds up metabolism by as much as 20%, while at the same time promoting fat burning. It stimulates digestive enzymes, thus improving digestion and enabling greater bowel motility.
LEMON FOR NORMALIZING BOWEL FUNCTION
Lemon can be consumed in a variety of ways, and is great combined with tea, especially green tea. It normalizes bowel function and encourages bowel movement. Since the colon is always full of toxins, cleansing it rids your body of toxins and unfavorable substances. And the timing couldn’t be better – everyone wants to get a flat stomach for the summer or to simply feel better.
Start today with a cup of green tea and delight your body. It will greatly appreciate it.
“Tea is the elixir of life.”
Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
Tea protects the whiteness of teeth
Adding a few drops of milk to your tea prevents unattractive spots from forming on your teeth. Only one drop of milk in tea can be more effective than whitening toothpaste.
Perfect tea depends on the water temperature
The ideal temperature for steeping tea depends on the type of tea you are preparing. When preparing tea, always heat the water in a teapot. While heating it in a microwave oven may seem practical and efficient, it is impossible to achieve the ideal water temperature for steeping tea.
Regulate the amount of caffeine in your cup of tea
If you want more caffeine in your cup, steep the tea bag or leaves in hot water for a longer period of time. If you want to eliminate up to 80% of caffeine, first steep the tea briefly, and then pour fresh boiling water over it again.
