How About a Detox?
The term "detox" is a fairly common term in health circles these days. And for good reason - there are significant health benefits associated with a detox. But what exactly is a detox? And how does our new line of detox teas fit the mold? Let's explore together.
What is a Detox?
A detox is a diet that aims to relieve the body of toxins, promote weight loss, and reinvigorate your body to operate at peak condition. This is done via the use of foods, minerals, vitamins, or some combination - to reduce oxidative stress, suppress appetite, and promote metabolism and fat burning.
Now, let's be clear about one thing. Our bodies naturally detox. It's the primary function of the kidney and liver. But with the variety of oxidants we put into our bodies, sometimes they can use a little help to achieve maximum efficiency.
Elderberry Boost 12 Day Detox Teas
There are a wide array of detox's available on the market. Discerning users will want to be sure they research the intended effects of each detox and find the right fit for them. To aid in that decision, we have provided an in-depth look at our 12 day tea detox. Our intent is to create a sustainable, non-disruptive detox regiment that works gently over time - and again - aids your body in its natural function.
The morning tea is a gunpowder green tea blended with peach and apricot. This combination of ingredients helps kickstart your metabolism, provides a boost of energy, and is stock-full of anti-oxidants to aid your liver and kidneys in processing.
The metabolism kickstart can help increase fat burning efficiency, while the caffeine also acts as a minor appetite suppressant. In addition to these benefits, the combination of ingredients are known to lower bad cholesterol, and act as an anti-inflammatory - both of which lead to heart health!
The noon tea is an oolong base with raspberry, apple, cranberry, and hibiscus.
Oolong has several of the same benefits of Green Tea, so this blend will offer similar benefits in regards to anti-oxidants, increasing metabolism, and appetite suppression. However, the addition of raspberries, cranberries, apples and hibiscus pack a wallop in terms of anti-oxidants, and gently cleanse your system.
In addition to these benefits, Oolong is shown to increase brain function - which is a great way to quell the early afternoon slump.
The night tea is a blend of Holy Basil, Spearmint, Rose Hips, Lemon Myrtle, and Linden Blossoms. This unique combination provides a significant amount of benefits. In addition to the significant anti-oxidant activity, there are several additional benefits:
- Heart health (lower cholesterol)
- Bloat relief
- Hormonal balance
- Memory Improvement
How to Detox
In order to maximize the effects of the detox, we recommend following the regiment strictly - avoid missing a day, and ideally, missing a session.
This is not a fasting detox, it is intended to aid your bodies natural abilities, and work over time. Eat meals as you normally would, but you can improve results by following a few other guidelines:
- Avoid (or limit) alcohol consumption

- Get a good nights sleep
- Drink lots of water
You will notice the benefits of the 12 day detox, even if you don't follow these guidelines. But to maximize the effects and do a full body reset, we recommend trying to follow these guidelines as much as possible!
