Get the most out of your teatox for a richer and healthier lifestyle, with these top tips.
Ever wondered why different people experience different results with a teatox? We have the answer.
A teatox is not about drinking your tea twice a day, teatoxing is a holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle. Its success is dependent on several interrelated factors and when you focus on them, the resulting synergy dramatically improves the effects.
So follow our teatox-enhancing strategies to experience amazing results.
Drink water to flush out the toxins released by your teatox. We recommend at least two-three liters of water per day. Adjust upwards according to your level of outdoor activity, exercise and warmer climates.
Just as drinking water helps the cleansing process, swigging on coffee and alcoholic drinks negates the goals of teatoxing. Alcohol is dehydrating, full of empty calories and puts toxins in your liver, diluting all your hard work.
But don’t stress about going cold turkey on caffeine because our Morning Boost Tea contains green tea (which has caffeine), guarana fruit and yerba mate, all of which are natural stimulants.

2. Follow a healthy diet plan
There’s no need to fast or eat less when on a teatox. You just need to follow a healthy, balanced diet. Teatoxing is about cleansing your system and you can aid this process by eating more fresh and raw vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins.
Restrict your intake of sodas, processed foods, trans fats and foods full of preservatives and additives. This will not only provide you with essential nutrients, but will also help you to lose weight.
Remember: fad diets are not only ineffective but they can be dangerous as well. Adopt a healthy diet to keep yourself fit and trim in the long run.
Exercise helps your body to get rid of toxins, it also releases endorphins, which help elevate your mood.
Take up walking, join a yoga or dance class, or play a racquet ball game with a friend. Any effort, no matter how small — such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, chopping vegetables, or doing household chores — all help towards a more successful teatox.
4. Combat stress
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) up to 90 per cent of all illness and disease is due to stress. Stress kills the good bacteria and yeast that live in our intestines which keep our immune system and digestive health strong. Stress can also make us comfort eat and reach for unhealthy snacks.
While our Night Cleanse tea, with its natural calming agents, will help you unwind after a long day, there are a few more things you can do to combat stress.
Try practicing yoga, meditation, reiki or massage and make a life-plan with clearly specified goals — having an eye on the bigger picture helps to trivialize life’s daily trials.
Less sleep has been linked to weight gain, moodiness, a foggy state of mind, digestive issues and illness.
Recent research shows that our brain has a unique waste management system. Called the glymphatic system, which is activated during sleep. By pumping cerebral spinal fluid through the brain’s tissues, the glymphatic system flushes the waste from our brain through the body’s circulatory system and into the liver, where it’s eliminated. To aid this brain detox, brain cells shrink by about 60 per cent during sleep to allow for more efficient waste removal.
Enhance your teatox with at least eight-hours sleep for a complete brain and body detox.
