Green Goddess Detox Tea
Feeling a little shady post the silly season? Let’s clear things up. This herbal tisane tastes divine and has the added benefit of powerful cleansing actions. St Mary’s Thistle, Schizandra, and Dandelion Root work to detoxify and repair your liver, while citrus peel and lemongrass promote lightness and radiance.
The botanical actives in this tea have proven therapeutic action:
- St Mary’s Thistle is unique in its ability to protect the liver. The compounds in St Mary’s thistle work together to support healthy liver function and tissue integrity by supporting healthy cellular defenses. St Mary’s Thistle also aids in the elimination of toxin accumulation in the liver and in the support of hormonal processes in the body.
- Schizandra is known as one of the most powerful “youth tonics” of all time and is prized by Asian cultures for its ability to prolong youth, increase stamina, and prevent fatigue. Schizandra fruits or berries contain various lignans, compounds that stimulate the immune system, fight cancer cells, protect and regenerate the liver, and increase the body’s ability to handle stress.
- Dandelion Root has been shown to improve liver function by removing toxins, re-hydrating, and re-establishing the body’s electrolyte balance. The herb also acts as a diuretic, assisting the kidneys in clearing out waste, salt, and excess water. The dandelion plant is rich in antioxidants that prevent free-radical damage to cells and DNA, thereby slowing down the aging process
Enjoy the tea iced with a slice of lime or hot with a dash of lemon.
