Detox herbal teas that help you get back in shape after the holidays

Celebration, lunches and dinners can leave a trail. Stomach pain, acidity, bloating, fatigue are just some of the symptoms that can accompany the after party due to the overwork of the liver and inflammation of the gastric mucosa. Herbal teas can help, for example thanks to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of mallow, which is also capable of improving intestinal motility (Benso et al, PLoS One, 2015). Ginger is anti-nausea, protects the gastrointestinal tract and is diuretic (Bodagh et al, Food Sci Nutr, 2018), fennel seeds are digestive, soothe abdominal cramps, help control cholesterol levels and protect the liver (Badgujar et al, Biomed Res Int, 2014), milk thistle is hepatoprotective, detoxifying as it helps block and remove toxins in the body, counteracts inflammation and also supports the immune system (Mulrow et al, AHRQ, 2020). Probably, however, one of the most powerful detoxifying remedies to purify after the holidays is stinging nettle, anti-inflammatory, capable of reducing blood sugar and cholesterol, is diuretic, protects and supports the work of the liver and kidneys (Behzadi et al , Avicenna J Phytomed, 2016).
Let's see some ideas of anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and hepatoprotective herbal teas.

Dandelion tea

Artichoke herbal tea

If you have some artichoke leaves left over, do not throw them away! Use them to prepare an excellent herbal tea capable of helping to keep blood sugar and cholesterol at bay, to protect the liver and even help regenerate it and improve the production of bile (Salem et al, Plant Foods Hum Nutr, 2015). Infuse a handful of artichoke leaves in a cup of boiling water, let it rest for 15 minutes, then filter and drink.

Herbal tea against heartburn
