Whether it’s a heavy meal or a night on the town, we all over-indulge from time to time. And that’s fine - we’re only human, after all!
Sunglasses and looser trousers might offer a quick fix the next day, but looking after your body from within is the most effective route to putting a spring back into your step. Dr Jackson’s Detox Tea offers respite from the not-so-glamorous after effects of a bout of decadence, like bloating, heaviness, fatigue, dull skin and a low mood.
This organic blend of cleansing and purifying ingredients is the equivalent of a reset button whenever you’ve been pushing your body a little too hard. Digestion-boosting fennel works in synergy with elderflower and aniseed fruit to soothe the stomach, while senna gently flushes toxins from your system. Spanish liquorice, known for its calming properties, lends a naturally sweet taste to revive the senses.
Enjoy once in the morning and once in the evening over a 4-5 day period to feel lighter in your body and your spirits.
Fennel seeds: fennel seeds are chewed after meals in several cultures, used as a breath freshener and to aid digestion. The high fibre content of the seeds, as well as their ability to increase bile flow and ease cramps, make fennel ideal for those with digestive issues.
Aniseed: in traditional Chinese medicine, aniseed is known for its harmonising effects on the body, including the digestive system. Similar to fennel, aniseed has a sweet and spicy aroma that promotes an overall feeling of balance. It has also been shown to have anti-ulcer and anti-inflammatory effects.
Senna: infusions cultivated from senna pods have traditionally been used to improve digestion and relieve occasional constipation.
Liquorice: sweet and soothing liquorice settles the stomach, maintaining a healthy digestive system.
Ideal as an after dinner digestif or any time you need to give your system a gentle cleanse
Take 2-3 teaspoons and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes according to taste
Can also be enjoyed as a cooling drink in warmer weather: prepare as above, leave to infuse overnight in the fridge and serve over ice
