Relax on beach

Did you know that various teas can be beneficial to you in a number of different ways? Be it the detoxing properties, natural antioxidants or simply the refreshing hydrating taste of a hot or cold cup of tea. Herbal teas, green teas and many other teas available allow you to indulge in a beverage suited to your specific needs and wants!

Detox teas

Not only are some herbal teas beneficial to your health, for example, the Super Fruit tea, but some also provide natural herbal remedies which help with relaxing and getting that great night’s sleep that we all need. Chamomile tea is perfect for this; it is juicy, sweet and its invitingly yellow brew will help you to switch off after a hard day. Not only does it contain sleep-promoting properties, but it also helps with relaxing those aching muscles and soothing away any anxiety.
If you are feeling a bit run down, and you have one of those annoying tickly coughs or have a slightly upset stomach then Peppermint Tea could be the one for you. Not only has this tea also won the Great Taste Gold 2012 award but it is also part of the herbal tea range with detoxing properties. This Peppermint tea, sourced from Bulgaria, has a very minty, refreshingly light taste. This is because the whole peppermint leaves are used in comparison to some off the shelf supermarket peppermint teas which leave a dusty, bitter aftertaste.
If this peppermint tea seems like it may be a bit too minty for you, then why not try a Green Tea with Mint. This provides a delicate green tea with a punchy mint taste and is a perfect to rid you of many toxins. Not too harsh, not too sweet but just right for a delicate palate.

Green Tea Varieties

Green tea is certainly one of the most preferred teas since there is a wide variety of it to suit each and every one of you; popcorn tea provides a green tea base with a slightly nutty taste to accompany it.

Jasmine Pearls green tea is also a very delicate and light green tea with a refreshingly floral taste, perfect for one who finds the normal green tea a bit too bitter. Green tea is not only full of powerful and natural antioxidants, but it also works in harmony with your body to help keep your weight in check.

Weight loss


Unintentional weight loss may result from loss of body fats, loss of body fluids, muscle atrophy, or even a combination of these.[1][2] It is generally regarded as a medical problem when at least 10% of a person’s body weight has been lost in six months[1][3] or 5% in the last month.[4] Another criterion used for assessing weight that is too low is the body mass index (BMI).[5] However, even lesser amounts of weight loss can be a cause for serious concern in a frail elderly person.[6]

Unintentional weight loss can occur because of an inadequately nutritious diet relative to a person’s energy needs (generally called malnutrition). Disease processes, changes in metabolism, hormonal changes, medications or other treatments, disease- or treatment-related dietary changes, or reduced appetite associated with a disease or treatment can also cause unintentional weight loss.[1][2][3][7][8][9] Poor nutrient utilization can lead to weight loss, and can be caused by fistulae in the gastrointestinal tract, diarrhea, drug-nutrient interaction, enzyme depletion and muscle atrophy.[3]

Continuing weight loss may deteriorate into wasting, a vaguely defined condition called cachexia.[6] Cachexia differs from starvation in part because it involves a systemic inflammatory response.[6] It is associated with poorer outcomes.[1][6][7] In the advanced stages of progressive disease, metabolism can change so that they lose weight even when they are getting what is normally regarded as adequate nutrition and the body cannot compensate. This leads to a condition called anorexia cachexia syndrome (ACS) and additional nutrition or supplementation is unlikely to help.[3] Symptoms of weight loss from ACS include severe weight loss from muscle rather than body fat, loss of appetite and feeling full after eating small amounts, nausea, anemia, weakness and fatigue.[3]

Serious weight loss may reduce quality of life, impair treatment effectiveness or recovery, worsen disease processes and be a risk factor for high mortality rates.[1][6] Malnutrition can affect every function of the human body, from the cells to the most complex body functions, including:[5]

immune response;
wound healing;
muscle strength (including respiratory muscles);
renal capacity and depletion leading to water and electrolyte disturbances;
thermoregulation; and
