Hey, guys! Thanks for visiting my page. As tomorrow is the first day of June, I wanted to give you a post that would help you not only with your summer body goals, but also help you kick-start a healthier lifestyle for the month of June! I came across this detox tea a few years ago, and have been obsessed with it ever since. It is especially great now because it is getting warmer out and this detox tea can be a great refresher to be enjoyed cold. Also, great for anyone who needs to shed some weight for the summer. Apparently, if you drink this tea for 7 days straight, you can drop 5-7 pounds, feel more energized, kick away cravings, get rid of bloating, and improve your skin. I never focused on losing weight part of the detox, so I’m not really sure if I ever did or not, since I did not check. I also don’t believe in depending on this one magical thing to help you maintain your healthy weight because being healthy isn’t just what you put into your body, it is also your mindset. You could do this detox for 7 days, but if you don’t have a healthy mindset, you’ll probably have your “cravings” hit and reach for unhealthy options too often. I want you to go into this with a healthy mindset, and do this because you love your body! If you need some lovin’ – maybe my self-love meditation might help ya 🙂 It is truly amazing and transforming! You can read it here.
I do like this detox tea because it is a natural way of detoxing your body — which your body needs from time to time. You don’t need those diet pills or whatever else the diet industry is throwing at you to lose weight unnaturally. Your beautiful body needs a refresher from time to time, and I think this is a great way to keep that amazing body of yours healthy and happy 🙂
What I’ve noticed about this detox is that it will help you go number 2 more frequently (sorry for the TMI). This is probably the reason why it improves your skin and bloating. Due to the fact that you are also so concentrated on drinking it for 7 days straight, you are consuming more H2O than regularly, and in turn this helps get rid of excess water weight. So in a way, it is a quick fix, but it is also an excellent way to get rid of any toxins. Whenever you feel that you’ve over-indulged and need a reset, this is a great option.
So, here are the ingredients:
- 60 ounces purified water
- 1 tbsp pure 100% cranberry juice
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 organic Dandelion root tea bag
I like to first steep the tea in hot water for 10-15 min as directed in the box and cover with a lid. This will allow you to get all of the tea benefits. Then you can combine all of the ingredients and serve chilled!
Dandelion Tea – increases urine production and serves as a laxative to increase bowel movement (where number 2 comes into place), liver detox, healthy skin and stomach.
Cranberry Juice – high form of antioxidants (more than blueberries!), prevents urinary tract infections, decreases inflammation.
Lemon – great level of vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and copper, helps shed weight, boost energy and mood. More information on it from my previous post (immune shot), which you can read here.
Thanks for reading, y’all 🙂 🙂 Hope you guys have an amazing day and I wish you the best of luck with your journey to a healthier version of you! If you need any help or just want to talk, don’t be shy to reach out 🙂
