Do you feel bloated, a little constipated, and easily drained of energy? In most instances, it might be because you overindulged yourself with the Saturday barbecue or ate one too many of those sliders! When we overindulge in rich food, our colon has to work overtime to process all this food and get the undigested material out of the body through urine or faeces. If this happens often, it does affect your gut flora and in turn gives us indigestion every now and then. Hence, some of us give ourselves a Colon cleanse.

Top 4 Teas for a Colon Cleanse
If you are considering of adopting a holistic solution for your colon cleanse, let’s understand what exactly happens when we start with a natural colon cleanse. The colon pulls water and minerals from the food that you consume, before eventually passing the undigested food out of the body. With bad diets and a bad gut health, the ability of our cleanse itself with the same effectiveness, decreases. That’s where these below mentioned teas will help as the motley of ingredients that these blends contain that help the colon and the other organs function better. So all you have to do is simply detox your colon by drinking any of these herbal teas about 3-4 hours before bed. This allows your body to work on it overnight.
What we, at Vahdam believe in is working in tune with the natural rhythms of the body. Hence, just do your bit. Feed in the goodness and rest will follow. Combine this with a balanced meal, get some sun and take a walk or get moving - and you shall see how amazingly these blends work for your body.

Sweet Himalayan Detox Green Tea
Best consumed in the evening because of its extremely low caffeine content, Vahdam’s Sweet Himalan Detox Green tea is a mellow, rich & complex green tea blended with powerful detox ingredients like Shatavari, Turmeric, Ashwagandha, Cardamom, and a natural sweetener stevia. While green tea is one of the best sources of beneficial antioxidants, all other ingredients are also abundant in antioxidants. Turmeric is a superfood with tremendous anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce inflammation in the digestive tracts, reduce the risk of colon cancer, and is a known carminative which can help calm the symptoms of indigestion. Green tea contains catechins, a class of polyphenols, which help in reducing inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.
Comfort Colon Cleanse Tea
From our incredible range of functional wellness blends, we present to you the Comfort Colon Cleanse Tea, packed with great flavors and powerful bountiful ingredients that effectively help in clearing your digestive tract of toxins. This herbal supplement blend contains 1000mg of Senna leaf in each serving that will help improve your bowel movement, boost digestion, and relieve constipation. The active compounds in Senna leaf, called Sennosides can be broken down by the bacteria in our gut and are absorbed by our digestive tracts. This breakdown of sennosides by the bacteria irritates the cells in the colon, thereby stimulating faster movement of any undigested material, toxins from the colon and helping cleanse it effectively, similar to a laxative effect.
Some people also use senna leaf based tea for relief from hemorrhoids.
Turmeric Spice Herbal Tea Tisane
To boost your metabolism and improve digestion, we have another award-winning herbal tea, the Turmeric Spiced Herbal Tea Tisane, that has a loyal following and we have had testimonials from customers saying that it helped with excess bloating and daily digestive issues that trouble them. This sprightly sun-kissed blend contains sun-dried turmeric, lemongrass, and the warm flavors of aromatic Indian spices like cardamom, cloves, and black pepper helps improve digestion and boost a sluggish system. It is proven that turmeric when combined with black pepper has a powerful healing effect on our gut, helping reduce gut spasms, flatulence and also reducing gut inflammation which helps in improving digestion.
Chamomile Mint Citrus Green Tea
A powerful calming and healing green tea blend, the Chamomile Mint Citrus Green Tea, with the soothing benefits of the adaptogen chamomile, refreshing notes of mint, and the citrusy notes of lemongrass and orange peels - making this an absolute delight of a blend for an effective natural colon cleanse. Rest be assured that you will definitely be upgrading your health regime by taking one cup every evening not just for stomach cleanse in the morning but also better sleep. Green tea as we spoke above, contains catechins which help in reducing inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. On the other hand, mint is known to speed up the passage of food through the stomach into the tract. Lemongrass is a proven diuretic which means that it will make you urinate more often, thereby ridding the body of the toxins, excess fluid and sodium. Lastly, Chamomile not only will help you sleep better, but will also help in reducing nausea, gas, and offers anti-inflammatory benefits.
So, a cup of herbal tea and good sleep at night is the most effective overnight colon cleanse. Wouldn’t you agree?
So, it all depends on the ingredients that your detox tea has which will help in digestion and therefore, a natural colon cleanse. So, choose tea blends that are full of antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory benefits, have ingredients that diuretic and which help foster good gut flora.
