Unlike juice cleanses, when it comes to the latest detoxing craze - there is no fasting required. Simply sip on a cup of tea (most are a base of green, licorice or dandelion) and for the best results you need to drink them morning and night, while continuing to eat a healthy balanced diet (it's not the green light to pig out). These new tea regimes promise to help you drop pounds, banish bloat, and flush out toxins - the culprits for everything from a pot tummy to dull skin and dimpled thighs. While our kidneys and livers do work 24/7 to eliminate the effects of toxins such as air pollution, pesticides, and heavy metals, according to celebrity heath guru Jeffrey Morrison, a doctor of integrative medicine in New York City giving the body a gentle hand with detoxifying tea, does have some value. "If those toxins exceed our body's capacity to fight them, a detox program can serve as a backup, giving our natural detoxification mechanisms time to catch up and work more efficiently." So with that said, it just comes down to choice. The most famous teatox would be Boo Tea, which ship to NZ, or try the locally made OMG Tea and Fat2Fit
To kick start the body a fourteen day program is recommended. Expect to pay from $30 for around a months supply.
