Detox Tips Following an Indulgent Weekend


Summer weekends are often jam-packed with outdoor events. However, while many of these outings feature swimming and walking on the beach—many still focus on rounds of sugary cocktails on the backyard deck, appetizers on the patio, or camping and cottage trips filled with barbecues and beer.

Returning home after a weekend of indulgence, your body may be begging for a few days of detoxification to cleanse your system of all the rich foods and alcohol. Luckily, you can keep detoxing simply by incorporating the following tips into your daily routine…

1. Brew a Cup of Green Tea

You’re probably already aware that green tea is rich in antioxidants and catechins, which National Institutes of Health research shows quickens the liver detoxification process. However, the power of sipping a warm cup of tea can actually counteract the jitters and anxiety caused by pounding too much caffeine over the weekend.

Following a few days of too much coffee, alcohol with soda, and energy drinks, green tea will do the body good and promote hydration. So after your first morning cup of java, do your body a favor and switch to green tea.
