Skinny Teatox morning tea is 100% natural.
There are no chemicals or preservatives.
Our Skinny Teatox morning tea is designed to be consumed the morning after you drink your evening detox tea.
The morning tea has a different ingredient line-up, with a different intent than that of the evening tea.
It is essentially a recovery tea, created to help finish off the laxative role of the evening tea, while stimulating recovery of the digestive system and helping to remove additional toxins.
This tea is made from a base of green tea, meaning it is perfect to use as a replacement to your coffee, and will still offer you a great energy boost to start your day.
The combination of mint and lemon in the tea means it is soothing and calming, perfect for if you have a bit of an upset stomach or cramps from the effects of the tea the night before and two herbs which act as stress reducers.
During your cleanse, it is important to focus on reducing overall stress, as stress will have a negative impact on your attempts to cleans and lose weight, potentially preventing you from shedding the pounds you are looking to get rid of, or simply not allowing your cells to release the toxins they have been holding on to.
In addition to establishing a regular routine with the tea, add in regular exercise and focus on a healthy, whole food diet, as well as adopt a method of stress relief.
Together these will ensure you see the success you are after with the tea cleanse.
Here’s what you need to now about the morning tea ingredients, including what they are, what they do and why they are an important part of your cleansing routine.
Perhaps the most familiar ingredient of the list, green tea is the base of the morning detox tea.
This means, the tea offers you your morning energy boost from the low levels of caffeine, but does not produce the same negative symptoms of coffee such as excess acidity, disrupted digestion, jitters and the crash, which often follows the energy jolt.
Most importantly though, green tea is loaded with antioxidants.
Antioxidants fight free radicals in our body.
Free radicals are chemical substances accumulate in our cells from the food we eat, the air we breathe, natural body processes such as energy production and protein formation, and our daily stresses.
These substances are very reactive, and failure to eliminate them can cause them to elicit unwanted reactions within our body, with potentially negative side effects.
By consuming adequate antioxidants, we help fight the accumulation of free radicals and act to prevent things such as cancer or internal cell damage.
Ginseng is a naturally occurring herb, found in Siberia, is an adaptogen.
Adaptogens aid the body in maintaining, or resetting its natural bodily processes, those of which are easily disrupted due to stress, lack of sleep, poor diet or an increase in sedentary behavior.
When these processes are disrupted, it can cause our energy to be diverted to resetting the process, or simply not allow proper production of energy at all, and can have side effects such as bloating, weight gain, water retention and general fatigue or sickness.
By consuming the ginseng in the morning tea, it starts the day out by helping the body reset and restores any natural processes which may have been disrupted, which should aid in weight loss, good digestion and proper nutrient metabolism and bodily cleansing.
Natural Lemon Flavouring
Lemon is an alkalizing food and substance to the body.
The blood is maintained at an alkaline pH within the body, and this is essential for proper functioning and natural bodily processes.
When the blood moves too far acidic or alkaline, the body has natural mechanisms involving the liver, kidney and skin, which it uses to return the blood, back to the proper pH.
The issue when we consume lots of acidic foods such as pasteurized dairy, grains, sugars, coffee and refined processed foods, is that the body has to work really hard to return the blood to this pH, an it can be taxing on our systems, leading to everything from a sluggish liver to poor digestion to poor fluid balance.
By consuming alkaline food and drink, we aid the body in the process of maintaining proper blood pH and put less stress on our bodily systems.
The alleged result is that energy can now be devoted to cleansing, detoxing and toxin metabolism aiding in weight loss, improving digestion and helping you feel better and lose weight more effectively.
Lemongrass is an antifungal, helping to remove toxins, or other unwanted particles in the digestive tract and intestine.
It is also a digestive aid, so it helps stimulate food to move through the digestive system, as well as helps encourage release of appropriate digestive enzymes for proper food breakdown and elimination of toxins.
Not only does lemongrass act as a digestive aid, but it also is an antipyretic.
This translates to “anti-fire”, which means it helps to reduce areas of inflammation within the digestive tract, and acts to lower fever in periods of immune system activation.
With all of the cleansing and contraction actions happening in the digestive system, it is not unusual to experience cramps, nausea, upset stomach, or just overall digestive disruption, and this is especially common in the morning when the laxative is taking affect, or has just finished cleansing the digestive tract.
Peppermint is a soothing herb, which acts to relax the muscles and ease symptoms of digestive distress, and can be especially good for calming nausea, which is often brought on my intensive digestive cleansing or an overburden of unwanted stomach bacteria.
Finally, peppermint has a numbing effect, which acts on the intestine and colon, easing the muscles and reducing the associated discomfort.
This herb acts to induce very mild sweating and has a mild laxative effect.
Sweating aids in eliminating toxins, which are often a by product of the cleansing process, or can occur in larger amounts depending on the state of the digestive system.
Failure to properly eliminate the toxins will mean they are simply reabsorbed and sent back through the digestive system or end up clogging up the lymphatic system.
By combining the laxative and a mild sweating component, the safflower acts to stimulate the movement of the toxins and unwanted particles within the body and the sweating acts as an elimination pathway to help get rid of them.
The main role of the cornflower is for liver support.
The liver is a key player in removing toxins from the body, as it is the first place of detox en route from our digestive system.
As a result, having a healthy, well-functioning liver is key to ensuring these toxins are indeed removed from our food and digestive tract, and that they can be broken down and eliminated.
Cornflower is considered a bitter, and bitters have an astringent effect which helps them draw the toxins out.
Any bitter foods, such as radicchio and endive also have this affect and can aid in supporting the liver.
Cornflower is also antibacterial, helping to kill the bad bacteria that may be living in our stomach and overtaking the good bacteria, and is a digestive tonic, helping to push particles through the digestive system to be eliminated.
