Total Tea Gentle Detox Review

My husband had gastric bypass about 8 years ago and although he has lost half his weight and kept it off, he has had stomach and indigestion issues since. Meals that are overly greasy, fatty or sweet cause his stomach to immediately reject the food and he is either sick to his stomach or writhes in clenching stomach pain/knots. This is somewhat a good thing as it keeps him eating healthier, however, often it is difficult to eat as strict as he needs to as sometimes regular food at a restaurant is greasier than he originally thought when ordering. He has grown accustomed to loving hot tea (at nearly what seems volcanic temperatures) even in the midst of summer as it eases stomach pain and aids in digestion. He and I were very excited to have him try a detox and digestion tea from Total Tea.   This company has various teas that contain healthy and soothing herbs that detox, tone and soothe the stomach and colon.  

We were sent a package of Total Tea which contains Senna, Peppermint, Chamomile, Rosehips and various other fantastic herbs and botanical ingredients.  It is an all natural herbal body detox that can help with irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, diarrhea, and so much more.   We like how it tastes delicious, and is caffeine-free. Kosher certified, and gluten free.  

Here are the ingredients that make this tea absolutely wonderful for his delicate stomach:

ECHINACEA - stimulates the immune system to counter both bacterial and viral infections. Contains anti-inflammatory components

GYNOSTEMMA - acts as a scavenger in the stomach and intestines to eliminate waste and toxins from the body. Helps accelerate metabolism by adjusting blood sugar and reducing blood fat

PAPAYA - Contains papain and enzyme chemically related to "pepsin" which helps digest protein in the body and acts as an anti-inflammatory

PEPPERMINT - Soothes and comforts the stomach, promoting healthy digestion. Helps with the treatment of ulcer conditions of the bowel and intestine

CINNAMON - Used to combat microorganisms, diarrhea and other GI disorders, and has anti-oxidant properties

HIBISCUS - Used to treat constipation and inflammation

GINGER - Relieves indigestion, gas pains, irritation to the intestinal walls, diarrhea, and stomach cramping for the best body cleanse effect.

ROSE HIPS - Beneficial for constipation, infections and bladder problems. Excellent nutritional supplement and helps prevent cold

CHAMOMILE - Contains anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the digestive tract and help relieve pain, indigestion, acidity, gas, gastritis, bloating, colic, ulcers and other inflammatory conditions of the digestive system

SENNA - relieves constipation, increases peristalsis & soften stools for a gentle colon cleanse effect.

He likes how it contains peppermint, senna and ginger, which are 3 ingredients he used to use separately for his stomach issues.  The Echinacea is nice as it is antibacterial which is important as he is a manager at a busy hotel and seems to always catch a cold.  This is helpful to his immune system.  He has been drinking this tea each night before bed and it calms his stressful moods and makes him relaxed.  Chamomile makes him sleepy but it also is great for his stomach issues.  He has bloating, acid, and indigestion daily.  All of the flavors blend together to create a delightfully spicy yet fruity tea that he loves.  He adds a touch of raw local honey to sweeten it.  This tea smells so good!

He loves this tea and recommends it as he says it helps keep him regular without bloating or cramping.  He feels better in the morning when he drinks a cup or 2 (reuses same bag for second cup) before bed.  The company even makes their tea in a k-cup form, which is really convenient.
