Tea detoxes are everywhere these days with so many brands claiming to help you lose weight/ cleanse your insides. Detoxes aim to get rid of toxins and unhealthy substances in the body and while some works whilst others are left with a little to be desired.
A tea-tox works as a herbal tea which you add to your diet to aid with digestion, increase your metabolism and cleanse toxins from the body. I was sent a seven day tea-tox which has been created by Slim Kitten for NutiPlan* and it claims to reduce bloating, reduce your sugar and carb cravings, boost your immune system and make you feel refreshed and awake.
Within the set I got 7 morning tea bags which you have every single day, and 3 evening tea bags which you take every other day. Generally the evening tea’s are the ones which almost act as a laxative and cleanse you more but these weren’t quite as intense as other tea detoxes I have tried.
Due to the amount of fizzy drinks I have I generally am always quite bloated and never generally feel that great about my body so I was excited to see how the detox would work. The tea’s have a slight red colouring due to the ingredients and they have quite a fruity taste which although was drinkable wasn’t massively enjoyable, but no detoxes I’ve tried have been nice.
I find it quite hard to judge detoxes over shorter period of time and while I can’t tell if it did boost my immune system I did feel less bloated and more energised.
If you’re looking for a gentler tea detox which won’t get you running to the toilet every hour then make sure you give Nuti Plan a go.
