“The simple truth is that we are living in a sea of toxins and it is destroying our bodies and our brains.”
We have all been at that point with an electronic device where it has malfunctioned so much, that we have had to press the factory reset button. Starting a cleanse is essentially the same thing, but for our body. It can certainly have a positive effect on our body, provided we make sure to do the necessary research on the subject or consult a heath care professional. After that, If you decide to do a cleanse we have some important information on why we think a tea cleanse is the best route. A cleanse works to purify our system from any toxins that can lead us to feel congested or bloated. Much the same way that our 7 chakras need realigning or re-centering, it is vital that our body’s system be cleaned out on occasion. This detoxification can lead us to feel refreshed in all facets, from our digestion to our mentality; along with physical benefits that enhance our enzymes, such as the renewal of our skin cells. It can also strengthen our immune systems with antioxidants. There are many different types of cleanses you can do, but few are as beneficial as a green tea detox. We will outline all the health benefits that come from using green tea specifically; however other teas like black tea or chai can also produce similar health benefits. These include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and polyphenols, such as catechins and tannins, all of which are extremely beneficial for our overall health. Our Mindfully Green tea is what we suggest taking during a green tea detox because of its quality, purity and ultra-high antioxidants. Let’s take a deeper dive into why a green tea detox may be just what your body needs to cleanse itself and return to factory default settings. After all, its our goal for the body to return to homeostasis.
How Can We Effectively Detox to Flush Our System?
There are several ways that we can influence and accelerate our body’s natural ability to cleanse itself leaving us feeling lighter, cleaner and clearer. Drinking green tea is among the healthiest ways to begin a detox because of the high levels of the catechin known as epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG, which can both slow down cell damage and eradicate free radicals from our body. Along with this method, detoxing can also consist of eating well, with a concentration on good quality proteins, fats and carbohydrates; featuring fruits and vegetables. This kind of diet helps to clear out our system and reduce the harm done by excess refined sugars and modified starches found in many of the processed foods that we often consume. These healthy foods pass much more smoothly through our digestive system leaving us feeling refreshed, instead of feeling sluggish because of what we eat. As we have said in many of our Chai Guides, what we put in our body effects the way we feel. Eating good quality foods on a consistent basis also helps to promote mental stimulation, along with the repair and rejuvenation of skin cells, leaving our skin looking and feeling healthier. With green tea as a catalyst, a healthy detox can be an efficient way to flush our system and reset its ability to form healthy cells and enzymes. To take detoxing to the next level many people find it effective to do these liquid based cleanses that can speed up the recovery process by flushing our system. Other methods include drinking water with sea salt, cayenne pepper, cucumber or lemon, which can all be refreshing and effective ways to flush out the bad toxins that impede our immune system and digestive tract. Amongst the many liquid based detoxification programs, green tea is commonly used because it has higher than normal levels of polyphenols and antioxidants, as well as the catechin, EGCG. Bad toxins disrupt our body and while it naturally tries to fight them off, drinking green tea can expedite the process and further clean our body of bad toxins returning it to harmony. Using tea for detox purposes has become a popular way to aid this cleansing method, as many teas are packed with valuable vitamins, minerals, herbs and spices that positively impact our health. Black tea features tannins that directly soothe our intestines, matcha helps to protect our liver and chai includes many of the most powerful herbs and spices that have been used in ayurvedic medicine in India for thousands of years. Green tea also works to lessen cholesterol and blood pressure improving our heart health. It remains among the best paths for a detox because it improves immune health through its bioactivity and EGCG. It further acts as a brain stimulant through its high levels of the amino acid L-theanine. Green tea really offers a powerful way to take control of our body’s health and allow it to operate at its optimal level.
Is Green Tea Good for Detox?
Green tea has proprieties that support our body’s own natural ability to flush its many different systems. These include a high concentration of polyphenols, which help to cleanse the liver and also antioxidants that work to keep free radicals from negatively impacting our health. Polyphenols in green tea consist of flavonoids or flavonols, also known as catechins, featuring EGCG. These are powerful compounds that boost our metabolism and brain activity. They also positively impact vital organs that regulate our digestive system. Our liver plays a large role in how the rest of the body functions and is the epicenter where toxins are managed before being expelled from our system through the kidneys. Using green tea for detox purposes can be a successful way to reduce the strain we put on these organs from taking in too many harmful nutrients that we can’t expel. The high level of antioxidants found in green tea work to expunge free radicals from our body, so its digestive system can run more smoothly. Enzyme production and activity is also greatly increased, which speeds up the detoxification process and further regulates these systems. All told, the nutrients and vitamins, like A, B and C that are actively found in green tea contribute to why green tea detoxes have risen in popularity. Since it contains L-theanine, green tea can keep you calm but alert during the cleansing of your body and its chakras.
