Adding green or black tea to your daily regimen can assist your body in the detoxification process and essentially, help boost your immune system!
Besides being a tasty alternative to plain water while detoxing, green tea is loaded with antioxidants that have been found to scavenge free radicals – or cells that have been set off balance by toxins. These antioxidants assist liver function and help to protect the liver from the havoc that toxins can wreak. This helps fight illness and disease while it detoxifies the body.
Some studies have even indicated that green tea can block the amount of fat stored in the livers of some obese mice. This is helpful in preventing fatty liver disease.
The flavonoid, catechin, speeds up liver activity and increases the production of detoxification enzymes.
Black tea is also a great option as it is also high in catechins, yet it has additional virus-fighting potential, and may even restrict the growth of certain harmful bacteria.In summary.
Black tea is able to fight viruses, has a therapeutic effect, restricts bacteria growth, and stimulates the respiratory system.
Green tea is antioxidant-rich, strengthens the immune system, protects against damage from free radicals, and keeps the immune system running normally.
So when you get tired of the water, grab some green or black tea, sweeten with a pure form of stevia, if needed, and let the flavonoids do the work while you enjoy your beverage!
