We all love warmer days and longer nights, but if the thought of hitting the beach this summer has you reaching for the nearest kaftan, don’t worry – September is the perfect time to spring clean your body (as well as your home!).
You don’t need to start a fad diet to shed those winter kilos – kickstarting a new health regime can be as easy as drinking the right type of tea at the right time of day.
Herbal teas are a powerful (and delicious) way to detox. While there are hundreds of varieties available, VOYA certified-organic teas step it up a notch with the inclusion of fucus serratus – a seaweed which has been hand-harvested from the purest waters off the Atlantic coast, rich in vitamins and minerals which possess extraordinary detoxifying properties that flush toxins (from both outside and inside the body) and encourage weight loss.
The absorption of ocean nutrients makes seaweed rich in protein, calcium, fibre, iron and more, as well as being low in fat and calories (win win!). Like our full skincare range, our teas contain high levels of seaweed, and when consumed, our bodies’ congested cells are able to release excess fluids, leaving you with a flat tummy and clear state of mind. The added bonus?
Detoxing with a delicious and healthy cuppa doesn’t require starving yourself or hitting the gym twice a day (although we do recommend trying to be active when detoxing – even brisk walks can do wonders for both weight loss and mental wellbeing!).
Our teas come in three delicious flavours – one to refresh yourself in the morning, one to aid digestion after a meal and one to sooth and calm the body before bed.
- Peppermint Pleasure: Drink this tea first thing in the morning. After a night of stagnation, peppermint tea will kick-start your metabolism and awaken both the body and mind, as well as aid digestion. Peppermint also helps with inflammation, and of course, helps to keep your breath fresh!
- Fennel Fusion: This tea is best used after lunch as it helps to suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism. Fennel is highly versatile and has been used to aid digestion, soothe bowel cramps, regulate blood sugar and relieve stress, so it’s great to incorporate into your busy work day.
- Camomile Calm: Ideal for early evening, this tea will aid digestion and continue to detoxify your body. It has a deeply calming and soothing effect, and is very high in anti-oxidants. Camomile tea has been particularly popular over the years for its ability to comfort, relieve nausea and encourage deep sleep.
Whether you’re looking for an all-natural way to lose weight or simply want to incorporate healthy new ‘me time’ habits into your daily routine, our certified organic seaweed-based teas offer a simple, cost effective and delicious way to flush toxins, shed fat and rejuvenate your body and mind.
