NOTE - this product contains Senna, which is a natural laxative. It's aim is to assist in the removal of toxic waste stuck in the digestive system allowing your body to flush unwanted chemicals and waste products out. This is particularly important for those with diets heavy in highly processed and calorie dense foods, which ultimately are low in fibre. It is recommended this product is used sparingly and only at the beginning of your lifestyle changing plan to get your digestive system back on track. Some people can experience some side effects, such as cramping and localised pain, and should these symptoms occur, which can happen if you are unusually sensitive to some of the ingredients, then we would recommend you discontinue use immediately, contact us and we will gladly reimburse you or provide you with our Senna-free version.
HOW DRINKING TEA CAN HELP WITH DETOXING
Traditionally detoxes are portrayed as taking up time and intruding on our daily schedule however, that is far from true and taking the time to detox your body is an effective way to get rid of all those nasty and unnecessary chemicals in and around the body. At Begu we have put together information in assisting you to identify and determine what are the most important factors to consider when searching for a tea to detox your body.
HOW MIGHT TEA HELP TO DETOX THE BODY?
Tea helps to detox the body through gently assisting the body to do what it does naturally. Your body has the ability to detoxify and eliminate any harmful substances efficiently and controllably which is an essential component due to the amount of toxins within the environment. For example, Green Tea detoxes the body through natural polyphenols which work by having a direct impact on the bodies major detox organ, the liver, and their antioxidants. Teas that are suitable for detox also reduce inflammation within the body by cleansing the liver and allowing the digestive system to ease back to normal, which positively contributes to reducing disease-causing inflammation and swelling within the organs.
WHICH INGREDIENTS MAY HELP TO DETOX THE BODY AND WHY?
With so many ingredients out there and often little understanding of their purpose and health benefits, it is worth us identifying and explaining those ingredients we have carefully selected in this formulation for their potential to detoxify the body.
Senna leaves - Senna has been used for centuries for its gentle laxative properties. There is a fair amount of negative press over this ingredient, and if this is of concern we do also have a Senna-free version available in our store.
Senna typically works as a gentle laxative by encouraging the walls of the large intestine to contract whilst encouraging bowel movements. Overall this results in natural detoxification of the harmful chemicals and toxins in and around the body.
Psyllium seeds - contains a natural highly soluble spongy fibre that is used to reduce appetite, improve digestion and cleanse the system.
It also is a natural laxative and is found as the predominant ingredient in many bulk laxative products, but it is also used frequently for detoxing.
Dandelion leaves - the leaves and roots of this plant have traditionally been used for liver and urinary tract health to promote the bodies ability to detoxify.
The dandelion plant is used in cleansing teas due to its perceived efficacy in detoxifying the liver, attributed to compounds such as sesquiterpene lactones, which may help cleanse it by increasing bile production and improving overall digestion.
WHEN DURING THE DAY SHOULD YOU DRINK DETOX TEAS?
At begu we recommend drinking our system cleanse after your day at work, but it can be down to personal preference and convenience, as there is no evidence to suggest time of day has a significant impact. Due to the mild laxative effects we would always recommend you start your system cleanse every alternate day first. If your digestion is very sluggish and constipated then it can take a little while to see any effects. Generally if you are regular and have no issues with constipation, abdominal discomfort, or bloating, then we would recommend you contact us, as not everyone will need a system cleanse. If you are used to a ‘bad diet’ then switching over to a much healthier lifestyle can take a little while to master. It takes preparation and perseverance until leading a healthier lifestyle becomes the norm. All our system cleanse packs come with 14 tea bags, which is plenty when taken on alternate days, or less or more depending on your sensitivity. We would not anticipate the need for gentle cleansing for more than 4 weeks, as you should have switched to a healthier diet by then.
