Detox Teas- Revolutionary or Ripoff?


Source: Shape

It seems like every single celebrity has an endorsement on their Instagram for DetoxTea. The different brands pay the celebrity to post a picture of them drinking the tea and saying how much they love it. Some celebs reportedly do drink the detox tea, and some swear by them for staying trim.

So what’s the deal really? Can they be good for you? Tea is healthy. Tea has many benefits for your body, antioxidants, for instance. But the fact of the matter is, there is no such thing as a true “detox tea”. No one drink can purify and detoxify your body. But drinking tea while enjoying a healthy diet can be healthy. Make sure to avoid any tea brands that have senna. Senna is a natural laxative. Every once in awhile it can be fine, but over time can cause gastro problems. Having diarrhea is not a sign that your body is detoxing. So maintain a healthy lifestyle, and drink the tea you like.
