What is detox tea & what does it do?

Detoxing with tea, also known as Teatoxing, is becoming increasingly popular. One form of detoxing is using Detox tea. This tea helps you eliminate waste products from your body due to its naturally detoxifying ingredients. Also, this way of detoxing can support you while losing weight.

Detox tea and losing weight

Detox tea can help you in your weight loss process, it is a supportive product and not a meal replacement. The natural ingredients in the tea can make you feel full, reducing your appetite in a day. As a result, you eat less and enter a calorie deficit. You burn more than you take in and this makes you lose weight. The tea has an effective hunger-relief effect when you drink enough of it. 

A disadvantage of detoxing with tea is that it can have a laxative effect. It stimulates the intestinal wall, which aids digestion. But there can also be a laxative effect and an overfull feeling. That overfull feeling, in turn, can cause you to eat too little and therefore miss out on essential nutrients. You can read about the disadvantages of laxatives in our blog on colon detox.
