This popular tea was used traditionally in China to help promote cleansing and digestion. Its traditional Chinese name comes from the green-colored herbs in the formula. Senna and malva verticillata are herbal stimulant laxatives that were used to promote bowel movements and cleansing. Loquat leaf was said to cool and harmonize the stomach. Licorice root was used to tonify the stomach and spleen, and to augment and harmonize the action of the other herbs. It is known as the “Great Detoxifier” in Chinese herbology. Research indicates that green tea’s antioxidants help promote healthy metabolism. The decaf green tea in this formula is naturally decaffeinated using a carbon dioxide decaf process that retains the antioxidants. Remember when dieting to follow a balanced weight loss diet and the advice of your health care professional. Be sure to eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits, juices and pure water. For additional support in cleansing, use this tea along with Triple Leaf Detox Tea.
