A healthy liver contributes to the overall health of a person, which is why it is important to ensure its smooth functioning. A detox at regular intervals is advisable, provided it is done without using supplements.

With irregular eating habits and an unhealthy lifestyle, the increase of toxins in the body is imminent. These toxins can affect the liver whose main function is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before it is passed to the body.

After dinner, you must consume something that soothes your body and aids digestion. And what better than a warm cup of mint tea? The essential oil in mint helps eliminate waste. All you need to do is put some water and fresh mint leaves in a kettle and let it simmer for a while. When the aroma is in the air, pour yourself a cup and enjoy.
