5 DETOX TEA RECIPES

HOW DOES DETOX TEA HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

Detox teas are not a panacea for weight loss. You still have to do more than just drink tea. No amount of tea can help you lose weight if you do not follow a sensible nutrition plan. However, detox teas can curb appetite, raise metabolism, burn fat, improve digestion, reduce fat absorption, boost energy or promote weight loss in another way.  Moreover, detox teas reduce inflammation and promote skin health, which is a great reason to make detox teas your healthy drinks staples.

Reach for tea instead of sugar-loaded drinks like sodas and you will not only cut your calorie intake, which is essential for weight loss, but also boost your metabolism. This will allow you to burn more fat.

Moringa – Newest Superfood

It’s got a snappy name – Moringa – and nutritionists are crediting it with just about every health benefit under the sun, so it’s a mystery that we haven’t woken up to it previously. But wellness fanatics are finally starting to catch on. Here’s what you need to know about it.

Moringa is a tree that grows in dry climates across Africa and Asia. It’s also known as the Drumstick Tree for its shape, or the Horseradish Tree for the taste of its roots, and thousands of the plants are scattered across the foothills of the Himalayas. Its pods, bark and even twigs have been cooked and eaten for centuries, but the powder, made by grinding its leaves, is what’s started sending health addicts into a frenzy.

Traditional Fermented Foods Benefits

If you have digestive problems, it will be almost impossible to permanently eliminate them unless you improve the balance between the beneficial and disease-causing bacteria that exist naturally in your gut. One of the most effective ways to do this is by eating traditional fermented foods rich in lactic acid–producing bacteria. These bacteria are what naturally make milk products go sour and vegetables ferment.

Lactic acid–producing bacteria are common in probiotic supplements—which is why traditional fermented foods are also known as probiotic foods. Previously I’ve explained that lactic acid–producing bacteria help acidify the digestive tract, creating an environment conducive to the growth of all healthy bacteria. However, the benefits of fermented foods don’t stop there.

Benefits of Fermented Foods

There are four important health benefits of traditional fermented foods that clearly explain why they are so crucial to maintaining a healthy gut:

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

we all know that what we use on our bodies to look after them is important, not only because it keeps our skin in good condition but because it can boost our sense of wellbeing too. But the thing that is becoming so critical in our quest for improved wellbeing is our understanding of the impact of what we put into our bodies ….our food.

I don’t know about you but it seems like it’s only in the last 10 years or so, that we are surrounded with information and research about just how much impact what we eat and drink can have on our wellbeing. I mean we always knew that sugar and salt were bad for us, but now? Well, now they are considered to be some of the worst ingredients you can put in your body (something Sandra will also talk about in her piece below), so now more than ever, you should be paying attention to what you consume.

Ginger is an aromatic, pungent and spicy herb (part of the Zingiberaceae family, as are cardamom, turmeric and galangal) that has tremendous therapeutic qualities. The underground stem (rhizome) can be used fresh, powdered, dried, or as an oil or juice.

Ginger: Medicinal Properties

The ancient medical science, Ayurveda, gives ginger the status of a virtual medicine chest. Not surprising as ginger has a long tradition in herbal medicine of being very effective in alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress – as an excellent carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract).
