Use herbal detox teas, as they are a great help in eliminating toxins from the body, and at the same time speed up the metabolism and melting of fat deposits. They usually contain diuretics, which encourage the elimination of excess fluid from the body and can also act as a laxative, so they will definitely help you feel more energetic and lighter.
They are very effective and popular in all detox programs for a reason, but keep in mind that drinking tea alone will not produce the desired results, at least not to the extent you expect. In addition to consuming detox teas, you will still have to pay attention to your diet and avoid foods that harm the body and regularly practice some physical activity that will make you sweat a lot and thus contribute to cleansing the body.
If you decide to reach for teas in order to speed up the body's detoxification process, here are some detox teas suggested by nutritionists.
1. Dandelion tea
Urination is one of the ways of excreting toxins from the body, and dandelion root has a diuretic effect. Dandelion root tea is an excellent aid in cleaning the kidneys and liver. Dry and chop the root (you can buy it already dried and chopped in herbal pharmacies), put 3-5 g in warm water and boil for 10 minutes, and strain. You can drink it three times a day, and it is best to drink it half an hour before meals.

2. Ginger and turmeric tea
Turmeric has earned its reputation as an elixir of health it owes to curcumin, an active substance that stimulates the work of enzymes that stimulate the excretion of toxins and contains antioxidants that regenerate liver cells. Ginger is a powerful antioxidant that improves liver function and is excellent for detoxifying the body. Drinking tea made from these two ingredients in the evening before going to bed will help to cleanse the body of toxins.
In a liter of boiling water, add ginger cut into pieces (a piece of about 5 cm) and cook for 5 minutes, then add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Leave for 10 minutes, strain, season with the juice of one lemon and honey as desired, and sip during the day.
4. Parsley tea
Parsley encourages the excretion of water from the body, and at the same time nourishes the kidneys and other organs responsible for cleaning the body. Pour a teaspoon of dried or a teaspoon of fresh parsley with 250 ml of boiling water, cover, and leave to stand for 15 minutes, then strain and drink still warm tea.
For a better taste, you can add a little lemon or honey. Drink 2 to 4 cups a day, and after three weeks take a break for a month to help the body recover from the diuretic effect.
