There are plenty of elixirs out there, but tea is one of the oldest natural detoxifying beverages that exists. What goes into a tea matters, which is why we have created Detox with Me ® Tea combining all the right organic ingredients, from peppermint and dandelion root to rooibos and lemongrass, for a healthy, toxin fighting drink that is light and refreshing on the way down.
So what happens when you combine the health benefits of tea with the power of apple cider vinegar? You get one delicious way to strengthen, protect and satisfy your body. And we have just the recipe for you!
But first, what exactly is apple cider vinegar? Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the sugar from apples and converting them into acetic acid -- aka, vinegar. The popularity of apple cider vinegar continues to grow as the list of proven health benefits gets longer and longer.
The health benefits of apple cider vinegar are plentiful. For starters, its main ingredient is acetic acid, which can kill harmful pathogens including bacteria and slow down the rate at which they multiply. For those with conditions affecting blood sugar such as diabetes, apple cider vinegar may improve insulin sensitivity and help reduce blood sugar levels after meals.
In addition, several studies indicate that apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight and reduce belly fat by satiating the human appetite leading to reduced caloric intake. Animal studies have shown positive effects of apple cider vinegar consumption on lowering cholesterol, thus reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease. Studies also indicate that this particular type of vinegar has strong cancer fighting potential, limiting the reproduction of cancer cells and shrinking certain types of tumors. Who wouldn’t want a little bit of cancer fighting tonic in their lives?
When it comes to gut health and comfort, there are more benefits. For those suffering from digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, apple cider vinegar can help increase stomach acid for a better breakdown of food, improving digestion and reducing a sense of fullness and bloating.
While drinking apple cider vinegar plain is always an option, we’ve come up with a much more enjoyable way to consume it. By pairing apple cider vinegar with our Detox with Me ® herbal infusion you can maximize those health benefits of acetic acid while enhancing them with this delicious, soothing tea made with its own purifying botanicals containing phytochemical nutrients designed to aid and stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms.
