Detox Teas For Weight-loss

detox teas for weight-loss

When it comes to detox teas for weight-loss, Green tea is KING! Drinking detox teas may help you reach your weight loss goals more quickly. It can also help to rid your body of harmful pathogens and free radicals that have been linked to serious disease. But we have to remember that losing weight is not only about drinking detox teas. Make sure you put in at-least 30 minutes of exercise 4-5 times a week as well as having a healthy diet. 

Do Detox Teas Work

Detox teas are effective in producing minor weight loss in the short-term. They help to control hunger and can reboot your metabolism to burn calories more quickly. You can’t simply drink detox tea and expect the kilos to melt off. You have to put in hard work in the kitchen and at the gym to truly see results.

What I love about detox teas, is that they can also help with clearing the skin and giving you that natural glow. They are a good choice for people who are looking to lose weight in the short-term and boost natural body functions. Detox teas can help to reset healthy gut bacteria and streamline digestion. It will in turn, help your body break down fat.

Best Detox Teas For Weight-loss


Green Tea

It has been drunk for centuries for its health benefits and has been proven to help with aid in weight-loss. Studies have shown that flavonoids and caffeine in green tea can speed up the metabolism, allowing the body to break down and process fat faster. People who drink the tea twice a day, can burn an extra 100 calories per day. On top of being packed with fat-blasting compounds, drinking hot green tea will also cause the body to work harder – burning more calories.

Dandelion Root Tea

It reduces water weight. If you’re feeling bloated, dandelion tea could provide relief. You can take this tea between meals or as a hydrating drink along with making other lifestyle changes. One study showed an increased urine output after two 1-cup servings of dandelion tea made from the leaves of the plant.
It is low in calories but also packs a lot of nutrients. This makes it a perfect drink for those who are on a diet. You can also try our Dandelion Pineapple smoothie for weight-loss as well.

Oolong Tea

There has been a debate as to which tea is better between Oolong Green tea. I guess it boils down to individual choice as both teas have many health benefits and help with weight-loss. Like green tea, oolong tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It boasts a large number of antioxidants and natural ingredients that eliminate toxins and free radicals that can increase the risk of stress-related weight gain.

When it comes to appreciation, oolong tea is a pure winner! This is because Oolong tea has a variety of tastes and flavours. It has a stronger taste, which makes it an alternate choice for the coffee lovers too. 


Earl Grey Tea

I recently found out that one of the most popular apparent effects of Earl Grey is weight loss. This is primarily due to the citrus extract found in the tea. Citrus fruit is believed by many to encourage weight loss and increase metabolism. This is because citrus helps to break down your food faster

Rosehip Tea

Tiliroside is the name of the antioxidant found in the rosa canina plant’s rosehips, that could be helpful in fat burning. One study published by Dovespress studied how pre-obese people reacted to rosehip tea.

Half of 32 participants took the rosehip extract while others took the placebo for 12 weeks. The participants in the first group had lower abdominal fat compared to the participants on the placebo medication

Not only does it aid in weight-loss but it prevents the skin from aging. Rosehip is known for its high amount of vitamin C which produces collagen in the skin for protection against sun damage.

Make sure to choose teas that are certified organic to avoid side effects of harmful chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides. You’ll also get better tasting tea when choosing organic or naturally grown teas.  You can choose detox herbal teas or true teas depending on your flavour preferences. You can also opt for tea bags, which are great for convenience or loose leaf varieties that pack in the health benefits.
