It’s that time of year when we pack up the decorations and welcome in the New Year with a rousing sense of purpose and determination. I, perhaps like many others during this Covid-19 holiday season, have found myself indulging in a few more nibbles and comfort food than I should have. The food and beverages we consume have an impact on our health, and New Years detox plans are more popular than ever. Jasmine Green, our top rated loose leaf green wellness tea, is the best tasting tea for beginners starting a New Years detox cleanse.
Green tea cleanses are consistently ranked at the top of the preferred list at herb tea stores, because the body's natural ability to detox is supported by the active ingredients and antioxidants found in green tea. The health properties of green tea are enormous, and I recommend using our Jasmine Green gourmet tea for any detox wellness cleanse!
In addition to lowering the risk of heart disease, green tea might actually enhance our brain’s cognitive functions too — particularly the working memory. The journal Psychopharmacology published research that indicates the success of green tea for the treatment of cognitive impairments in psychiatric disorders such as dementia.
Detoxing with our Certified Organic Jasmine Green Tea will kickstart your way to feeling healthy! Rich in water, you may initially experience weight loss as your body rids itself of toxins and flushes out the excess sodium that has built up in your body.
High sodium foods such as potato chips, nuts, and other holiday snacks can cause your body to retain water giving you that bloated look and feeling. Flushing your body naturally with a green tea cleanse can provide you with more energy, make you feel less bloated, and even build your immune system — something that can only be helpful during this time of Covid around us.
