Herbal detox tea is a popular way to help aid in weight loss and colon cleansing. Even the healthiest person who eats right and has regular bowel movements will still have a substance build up in their colon and intestines called mucoid plaque. Over time, this substance will harden and become nearly impossible to flush out of the system. People who specialize in herbs and colon cleansing claim herbal tea is one of the proven methods to get this intestinal plaque out of the body. Tea can also be easily made at home, as long you have the right ingredients. Here is one example of an herbal detox tea recipe.
For this herbal detox tea recipe, you simply need to gather various teas in the right amounts, and put them together and prepare the combined mixture as you normally would.
