    Best Teatox Skinny Tea on the Market? We Think So

    Best Teatox Skinny Tea on the Market? We Think So

    So you've heard about this teatox, detox tea, or skinny tea craze, about how you can lose weight with tea naturally. You fire up your trusty friend google to find a good detox tea product and you're bombarded with hundreds of different options that all look kind of similar. How do you decide which to go for? Do you choose based on price, quality, results, ingredients? Obviously were a little biased, but here's why we feel SkinnySteep tops them all.

    Price

    You'll find many detox teas out there that routinely sell a 14 day bundle for $35 or more. Here at SkinnySteep, our Teatox Bundle is only $30 and gives you a month's worth of teatoxing power! Along with that, our Teatox Bundle includes an awesome bonus tea infuser for free.

    Shipping

    Did we mention we provide free shipping on all of our products, with no minimum spend? It's true, anything you buy from us comes with free shipping right to your doorstep. Your order ships no later than the very next business day, and sometimes ships the same day! And delivery time is only 3-5 business days!

    Organic

    Every single one of the ingredients in our teas, not some of them or most of them, but ALL of them, are certified organic. You can rest assured that when you drink SkinnySteep, you're not only getting some amazing health and weight loss benefits, but you're putting natural, wholesome, and 100% organic ingredients into your body.

    Ingredients

    We took a while to develop our blends, and it's not because we're lazy (although who doesn't love spending an entire Sunday in their pajamas?). It's because we were so dead serious about developing a super blend of ingredients that would be as effective as possible and do wonders for your body. We worked with dietitians, nutritionists, fitness professionals, and certified tea sommeliers to painstakingly select each individual ingredient in our blends to make sure they provided real results and balanced out the other ingredients well. We think we've achieved that. What's more, we only work with US based, reputable tea growers, and we only use premium ingredients. We're not looking to cut costs by bringing in cheap green tea from China, it's only the best for our customers.

    Loose-Leaf is Better

    Loose leaf tea is made up of whole, unbroken leaves and herbs. Teabags are usually made from the opposite - low tea grades, such as dust and fannings. These small pieces of tea lose most of their essential oils (what makes tea flavourful, aromatic and healthy), leaving the tea dull and stale. See the difference our premium, hand blended whole ingredients make.

    Results

    You may have seen some of the before and after shots on our website. Those are REAL customers and REAL results. And we actually have hundreds of more testimonials like that that we haven't gotten around to adding to the site yet (did we mention we like lazy Sundays?). Our tea works, and you'll notice it from the first cup you drink as you feel the bloating in your belly start to disappear. 

    So we think it's time you stop asking yourself what's the best detox tea or teatox for losing weight and give SkinnySteep organic detox tea a try. We promise you won't be disappointed!

    What is the best way to regain control of your life and get started on the right foot this year? The answer is a cleanse. Not one of those unhealthy, starve yourself, weight loss cleanses. But instead, a colon detoxifying cleanse that can help to gently reset your body to start over again for the New Year. Tea cleanses are the perfect way to clean out the sludge in your intestines and act as a jump start to a wholesome and nutritious diet.

    What are some signs that I should do a tea detox?

    Some of the major signs that show you need to do a tea detox are ones that are easy to miss and write off as something else. However, when your liver and gut are overwhelmed, you will have regular symptoms such as the following:

    • Allergies
    • Difficultly sleeping
    • Fatigue
    • Foggy Brain
    • Digestion Issues
    • Weight Gain
    • Acne or rashes
    • Headaches
    • Etc.

    How does a tea detox work?

    Do you have some of the symptoms above and feel as though you might need to do a cleanse? A tea detox is one of the most safe, gentle ways to go about this. SkinnySteep Tea follows is 100% natural and organic product made up of loose-leaf teas. These teas are rich in antioxidants and help with both cleansing and weight loss. They are delicious, but most importantly also made of safe and natural ingredients.  

    The effects of a tea detox such as SkinnySteep can be felt usually within a week of regularly using the product. As your body cleanses, you will feel more energy, less bloating, better digestion and an overall sense of heightened mental focus and well-being.

    The steps are easy; start day one by drinking the Daily Boost blend twice, once early in the day, and once later in the day. On day two, drink the Daily Boost in the morning and the Cleanse in the evening. This pattern is repeated (using the Cleanse tea blend only every other night) until all your tea is done. While you are drinking the tea, it is important to remember to drink at least eight cups of water every day to stay hydrated as well as eat healthy. Detox tea helps to clear out your colon, but it isn’t magic by itself! Eating healthy and drinking water will aid your tea in cleaning out the system, and sugar and carbs should be strictly limited.

    How to Stay Healthy Through the Holidays

    How to Stay Healthy Through the Holidays

     

    Staying healthy through the holidays isn’t always easy! Shopping for gifts, planning parties with friends and family, and the hustle and bustle can really get in the way of self-care and regular healthy habits. Here, we have outlined a few tactics that you can use to stay on track through this year’s holidays and into the New Year. Bring it on 2017!


    Walk More Places

    While you might not have space for your normal gym time, there are still healthier options you can take to get that extra movement in. If you’re shopping for gifts, purposefully park across the mall or opt to take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. Get those legs burning! If you have any extra time, go for a walk with the family. If you normally visit friends at coffee shops, suggest a walk around town instead to look at lights or holiday decorations.


    Balance Your Food Choices

    Nobody wants to regulate the food they are eating during the holidays. Family members bring traditional dishes that you eat every year and there are goodies galore, but they might not always be the healthiest. However, this doesn’t mean you have to say no! What it does mean is that balance is key. It’s okay to eat extra carbs and sugars on special occasions, but make sure to detox your body on the days you won’t be at holiday parties. Eat a clean, plant based diet. Load up on the veggies and water. If you want to take your detox an extra step, follow a detox tea regimen!


    Take Time to Yourself

    A happy body is a healthy body. Your mental health can greatly affect your physical appearance and how your body functions. WebMD states that stress can cause problems like obesity, accelerated aging, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety just to name a few. Identify what relaxes you and set aside time to do it. For some people this might be working out, yoga, or meditation. For others, maybe it’s reading a good book, painting, or cooking a new recipe. Whatever it is, it’s important that you prioritize your time in a way that allows some time for yourself. Your body will be thanking you later!


    In the end, staying healthy through the holidays comes down to balance and being aware of your own body. If you make sure to be aware of the choices you are making, and give your body what it needs, you’ll ring in the New Year as a happy, healthy, and energetic you!

    3 Ways to Get Healthier and Lose Weight

    3 Ways to Get Healthier and Lose Weight

     

    Staying healthy and losing weight is no easy task. These two things are dependent on one another and take paying attention to a few factors to be successful. Whether you are trying to lose a few pounds from Thanksgiving or complete an overhaul on your body and appearance, you can follow these steps to get healthier and lose weight:

     

    1) Exercise

    This might seem like a no brainer to some of you. However, a lot of people simply just don’t do it! It is not possible to be at your healthiest or lose unwanted weight when you aren’t exercising regularly. Your body – and mind – will thank you greatly if you stick to a regular workout routine.

    Mayo Clinic lays out the basic exercise needs for an adult every week as such:

    • Aerobic Activity – At least 75-150 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity every week. It is suggested that this activity is spread out among different days.
    • Strength Training – Target all major muscle groups at least twice a week with weights. These workouts must tire out the muscles within one set of 12-15 reps.

     

    2) Eat healthy

     

    Eating healthy is a huge aspect of staying healthy and losing weight. What goes in to your body is extremely important, as it will be converted either to energy or fat. Some points to remember when choosing your food:

    • Stay away from processed foods. The chemicals, preservatives, and additives in these foods are very harmful to your body. These unnatural items are not meant to be consumed by our bodies and will only do harm.
    • Eat a plant-based diet. If you are a meat eater, keep it to a minimum. Always make sure that the majority of your diet is made up of bright, vibrant nutrient rich vegetables.
    • Drink a lot of water! Water keeps your body fluids balanced, helps to flush out toxins, and keeps you hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

     

    3) Detox

    Detoxes can be a great way to reset your body, lose some weight, and keep that weight off. However, some detoxes can be harmful to your body and have side effects that are not worth the positive ones. The safer way to detox is with a tea detox. Why is this? Because it:

    • Gently cleans out the colon of unwanted sludge.
    • Provides anti-oxidants, minerals, and other ingredients that allow your body to refresh itself.
    • Boosts your metabolism and reduces body fat.
    • Suppresses your appetite.
    • Reduces bloating and improves digestion.

    3. Herbs and Spices

    Herbs and spices might seem like a small addition, but boy are they mighty. Add them to any of your daily recipes or even your tea!
