Will Yogi Detox tea harm me, or possibly cleanse me a little bit? Are there any health benefits to Herbal detox tea or is it dangerous or a waste?

Will Yogi Detox tea harm me, or possibly cleanse me a little bit? Are there any health benefits to Herbal detox tea or is it dangerous or a waste?

The thought of cleansing comes from the notion that stool is dirty. However, your colon doesn't absorb anything but water and "toxins" cannot be absorbed. Short answer: A waste of time. ...Read more
