Our goal at Buddha Teas is to offer a wide variety of pure, natural teas designed to promote better health and happiness. One of the best ways we can do that is through our premium blends.
Each blend is uniquely crafted to provide a specific benefit or support a certain system. But how do they do that, exactly?
We’ll take you through each blend and the ingredients that make them so beneficial. To start with, we’ve chosen the perfect tea for a fresh summer detox: Zen Cleanse.
The Zen Cleanse Blend
With eight herbal ingredients at your disposal, the Zen Cleanse blend is a potent detoxifier. Carefully balanced to support detox while providing a rich, intriguing taste, Zen Cleanse supports your body’s natural detoxifying system.
There are no wasted ingredients in this blend; each herb is selected for its own potent health properties. As always, each ingredient is organic, and there are no added chemicals or flavoring. After all, when you’re trying to rid your body of unwanted chemicals, it doesn’t make sense to go adding more in, does it?
Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this blend, and what makes them so useful.
It’s the digestive benefits that play a key role here. The antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects ease digestive trouble and promote healthy digestion, allowing the body to expel waste through digestion more effectively.
Ginger may also help to ease inflammation in other detoxifying organs, including the liver and kidneys. Less inflammation means these organs can function better, leading to better detoxing overall.
Other Benefits: Ginger is one of the most effective all-around herbal remedies, with benefits for many areas of the body. Some of ginger’s health benefits include:
- Rich antioxidants
- Eases joint inflammation
- Promotes circulation
- Alleviates menstrual pain
- Supports healthy skin
You may not like seeing a dandelion on your lawn, but put it in a tea blend and it suddenly becomes something valuable.
Dandelion root has been shown to stimulate liver function. Specifically, it activates the production of bile. The liver filters toxins and waste from the bloodstream, and the bile helps to finish the process by flushing it from the liver and on its way out of the body.
Its detox benefits don’t stop there; dandelion root is also a diuretic. This works by stimulating the release of excess water weight, helping to flush out waste from the kidneys and bladder as it does so.
Other Benefits: Dandelion root’s benefits, like ginger, are quite broad. Taken internally, dandelion root:
- Supports digestive function
- Offers rich vitamins and minerals
- Promotes Immune function
- Counters inflammation
Chances are you’ve heard someone recommend cranberry to fight bladder infections. While more recent data suggests it may actually be more useful before an infection rather than during one, its diuretic effects are still helpful.
The pretty hibiscus flowers you might see in your garden aren’t the same ones you’ll find in this tea – instead, it’s the cousin of those decorative flowers that offers these benefits.
Like cranberry, hibiscus helps to flush out the kidneys and bladder, eliminating toxic buildup and possibly even reducing the chances of kidney stones. Hibiscus is also known to promote good circulation, increasing the distribution of precious nutrients throughout the body and supporting its health as a whole.
The spearmint leaf might seem the most superfluous ingredient, but even this simple mint has a positive function for detox.
Like ginger, spearmint eases digestive issues and promotes healthy bowel function. Add to that its refreshing minty taste, and it’s easy to see why mint is a common ingredient in many detox drinks.
Milk Thistle Seed
Not only does it support bile production, helping to cleanse the liver of impurities, but early studies suggest it may even speed healing of the liver. It’s no surprise that this one serves as the foundation for the blend.
On top of its liver-boosting properties, burdock also promotes kidney function and healthy digestion. It’s also known to help flush toxins from the skin and scalp, leading to skin that is clear and healthy, and hair that is lustrous and smooth.
In the herbal world, senna is known for one thing – fiber. As one of the world’s best natural fiber sources, it’s a powerful tool for promoting healthy digestive function. We’ve carefully balanced the amount of senna used in this blend, providing just enough to complement the other potent digestive herbs.
Each of these ingredients is a powerhouse for detox on its own – combined, they work together to offer you the best natural detox experience you can hope for. Try sipping Zen Cleanse through the summer and see what it can really do for your health!
