The Benefits of Drinking Detox Tea with Apple Cider Vinegar:
Apple Cider Vinegar is full of enzymes and good bacteria. It contains acetic acid which has been shown to lower blood pressure up to six percent. Apple Cider Vinegar is great for soothing a sore throat due to its bacteria-killing agents. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar can help boost your immune system by rinsing bacteria-ridden areas in the body as the drink passes through you.
Lemons flush out toxins from your digestive tract. They are high in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that help to loosen toxins in the digestive tract. Lemons are also a natural diuretic. Lemon juice detox is an excellent addition to liver cleansing. The natural cleansing qualities of lemons help reduce harmful bacteria.
Apples are rich in important antioxidants and flavanoids, including Vitamins C and B Complex. One of the antioxidants found in apples lessens the oxidation of fat cell membranes. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
Honey has 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. This natural unprocessed sugar, fructose and glucose, goes directly into the bloodstream which will deliver a quick boost of energy.
Cinnamon packs a mighty hefty punch as a natural ingredient for weight loss. It contains natural thermogenic properties, meaning it will speed up your metabolism, and in turn, your body will become more efficient at burning calories.
