When it comes to detoxifying, removing excess fluid and trimming down, using natural herbs is one of the most effective and therapeutic ways to get the results you desire. Three of my favourite products for slimming down include No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea, No. 6 Puff Away Tea & No. 7 Slim Me tea. In … Continue reading
No. 1 Green Goddess Detox Tea
Our Green Goddess blend is our bestselling Beauty Tea at Edible Beauty. There are two reasons why. Firstly, it is wonderfully therapeutic and medicinal, but secondly it tastes light and refreshing. We have brought in the big guns when it comes to detoxifying with Schizandra Berry, St Mary’s Thistle and Dandelion Root. The medicinal action of these herbs lies in their ability to heal and regenerate the liver and to assist the liver in clearing toxins from the body. Interestingly, St Mary’s Thistle has been clinically shown to assist in the management of Type 2 diabetes. These herbs are often promoted as “hang-over” cures and anecdotally I have seen them as being effective in hastening recovery from a few too many margaritas.
In their traditional preparation the liver loving herbs in this blend are often bitter. However rest assured, we have artfully combined them with lemongrass, ginger and calendula which make this tea a delight to drink either hot or iced with a squeeze of lemon and lime. Aim to have three cups daily for a period of two weeks for maximum therapeutic action.
No. 6 Puff Away Tea
Puff Away is a kidney cleansing tea which has a wonderful diuretic action. The synergistic blend of the herbs in this blend work to reduce water retention, puffiness and revive tired eyes and skin. This blend is particularly unique due to the addition of an Amazonian herb named Guayusa. Guayusa is rich in nutrients including theobromine, a compound which reduces inflammation and blood pressure while also acting as a diuretic. Guayusa has traditionally been used to detoxify the blood, improve the function of the kidneys and urinary tract, and improve digestion and elimination. Dandelion leaves, Nettle and Juniper Berries, which are also found in the tea blend, act as diuretics, flushing the kidneys and assisting in accelerating their filtration activity. This tea has an uplifting spearmint flavor which makes it easy to have about two to three cups daily for maximum therapeutic action. Have this tea during the day so your sleep is not disturbed with visits to the bathroom.
No. 7 Slim Me Tea
One of most beautiful tea blends, No. 7 Slim Me is the most popular amongst our female body builder customers who love to use this blend in the lead up to competitions. It contains the very special Pu-erh tea. This tea has been used for more than 1,700 years in China.
Pu-erh is renowned for its special ability to assist in weight loss and fat burning. It works to boost the metabolism, improve digestion and reduce fat absorption. Drinking this tea an hour after meals is the most effective way to improve fat digestion and reduce fat absorption. This teas is more effective than standard black tea due to the method of its preparation.
Pu-erh tea is fermented similarly to oolong tea and then goes through an additional process called post-fermentation. After the tea is fermented, the leaves are sun-dried, and aged in a high humidity environment. This fermentation process increases the potency of the actives in the tea, enhancing its therapeutic benefits.
As an added benefit, this tea works to improve mental alertness and to stimulate blood flow to the central nervous system. This tea is very easy to drink with a deliciously mellow and earthy flavour.
