Warm up this Winter with a Hot Cup of Tea-tox
During the winter months there’s often nothing as relaxing as curling up next to a warm fire with a hot cup of tea. Why not pick a tea that works double-duty as a gentle metabolism-boosting detox? MateFit offers just that, an herbal tea that helps your body burn fat, flush out impurities, and curb cravings.
The 14 Day Mini Teatox ($26.99) is perfect for adding to your daily routine before the New Year to really help you achieve your healthy resolutions in 2015. MateFit features two tea blends, Metabolic Booster and MateFit Detox. The Metabolic Booster, which you’ll drink twice a day in the morning and at noon, contains organic yerba mate, oolong tea, and green tea as well as angelica root powder, guarana seed powder, and licorice root cut. The tea has EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) which works to decrease fat absorption and increase fat burn while raising your body temperature. You’ll add a tablespoon to the provided teabags and then let the tea steep for up to 7 minutes for maximum benefits. You’ll steep a cup of MateFit Detox every other night after eating dinner, make it stronger by steeping the tea for 8-10 minutes. The Detox blend contains organic dandelion root, peppermint tea, organic rosemary leaf, organic senna leaf (a known diuretic), organic cinnamon powder, organic ginger root, organic hibiscus flower powder, organic rhubarb root powder, organic lemongrass leaf, and organic grapefruit peel.
MateFit works best when you’re following a healthy diet and exercise routine. While on your two week cleanse try to abstain from alcohol, grains, and dairy. It’s also recommended that on Day 1 of each week of your cleanse that you drink your meals so look towards your favorite juice cleanses and plant-based protein shakes! I love how simple it is to incorporate MateFit into my normal routine and that it doesn’t include starving myself but rather just switching out the cups of coffee I would otherwise consume for something that contains lots of healthy benefits! I personally love the taste of the teas but you can add in a little lemon and honey to sweeten them up if you need that.
