What is an herbal tea?
Herbal teas, also called herbal infusions, are made from dried herbs, flowers, and/or fruits. Unlike white, green, oolong and black teas, herbal teas are not actually made from tea leaves. EPX Body Detox is an herbal tea blend of organic herbs and natural plant extracts.
Does it contain caffeine?
No, EPX Body Detox is naturally caffeine free. That being said, the result of its cleansing effect causes many people to feel more energized.
How much should I drink?
To experience the health benefits, drink 8 ounces of EPX Body Detox two or three times a day. As with all herbal teas, do not drink it in excess; not more than three cups a day unless recommended by a health care professional. Children should drink only 2 to 4 ounces a day.
For how long can I drink the tea?
You can drink EPX Body Detox as long as you desire. (It contains NO Senna, which leaves a residue in the colon that could lead to health problems.) Many people enjoy the tea every day with meals and snacks. Some drink it as needed to maintain their health and regularity and as a healing tonic for various ailments.
How much will each tea bag make?
Each tea bag makes a half-gallon of prepared tea, which lasts one person about 4 days if they drink 8 ounces twice daily. Two tea bags make a gallon of tea, which is a one-week supply for one person.
How do I prepare the herbal tea?
To make a one-week supply, bring two cups of water to a full rolling boil then turn off heat. Place two teabags in the hot water; cover and steep for 4-8 hours (or overnight) to bring the herbs to full potency. Then pour contents (including the tea bags) into a gallon pitcher and fill with water. And it's ready to drink and/or refrigerate. (If you would prefer to prepare a half-week supply instead, follow the same directions above but use only one tea bag and a half-gallon of water.) Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Leave the tea bags in the pitcher until all the tea is consumed. Do not microwave the water or tea bags; doing so will destroy the tea's beneficial properties.
Can I drink the tea cold or hot?
Yes, like many herbal teas, EPX Body Detox can be consumed hot, warm, or cold. Some people feel that it works best for them when warm. To warm-up the prepared tea once it has been refrigerated, use the stovetop as the microwave will destroy the tea's beneficial properties.
What does it taste like?
The light amber colored tea has a mild herb flavor. Some say it has a subtle natural nut taste, although it contains no nuts. Like many herbal teas, EPX Body Detox tastes great hot, warm, or when iced. In addition, it can be mixed with sweeteners, lemon, other natural flavoring, another tea, juice, or beverage of your choice.
Can I add sweeteners, add lemon, or mix it with another tea?
Yes, the prepared tea can be mixed with sweeteners, lemon, other natural flavoring, or another tea, juice, or beverage of your choice.
Are there any side effects?
EPX Body Detox is a safe, gentle cleansing tea. So if you do not already have regular bowel movements, the initial cathartic effect of the tea may cause bloating, mild stomach upset, loose stools, and diarrhea. However, once you have achieved bowel regularity, these conditions will lessen or go away completely.
What are cathartic herbs?
EPX Body Detox contains cathartic herbs, which help restore a sluggish bowel to its normal operation and can gently act as a natural laxative and constipation remedy. The use of cathartic herbs is the crucial first step in a natural colon cleanse or detox as they directly stimulate the colon to produce a bowel movement and flush out the buildup of waste and toxins.
Will it cause me to have more bowel movements?
Like other cleansing teas, EPX Body Detox will promote regular bowel movements, which are essential for flushing toxins out of the body and preventing them from reentering the bloodstream. The initial cathartic effect of the tea will cleanse the intestinal tract. To maintain digestive health, aim for one bowel movement per main meal, which means two to three times a day. If you are having one or fewer bowel movements per day, it could be a sign a chronic constipation.
What if I'm going to the bathroom too much or am experiencing cramping from drinking the tea?
If you experience cramping or need to use the bathroom too often, it is recommended that you take a day off from drinking the tea. When you resume, drink less of the tea and adjust the amount to reach your desired results.
Is the herbal tea safe?
EPX Body Detox is a blend of safe, gentle medicinal herbs that have long history of use. The formulation has been used for more than twenty years. However, as with all herbal teas, do not drink it in excess; not more than two cups (16 ounces) a day unless recommended by a health professional.
Is the herbal tea safe for children to drink?
Yes, EPX Body Detox is safe for children to drink; however, it is recommended that they only drink 2 to 4 ounces a day. You may need to adjust the amount depending on how it affects the child's bowel movements (2-3 bowel movements per day is normal for a healthy colon).
Who should not drink the tea?
Due to the detoxing effects, EPX Body Detox is not recommended for pregnant women, young children, or people with certain health conditions (such as anemia, diabetes, and kidney disease). In addition, women who are nursing, children and teenagers, the elderly, and individuals suffering from any illness or health condition should consult their health care provider before using this or any herbal supplement.
Can I take it with my medications?
It is recommended that you take any medications at least 1 hour before or after drinking the tea. Otherwise, the tea may flush them from your system too soon for your medication to be effective.

A Simple, Proven Way to a Restore Balance Naturally – Resulting in a Healthier, Happier You!
The process of nutritional cleansing removes environmental impurities and replenishes your body with the optimum balance of nutrients…thereby giving the body the fuel it needs to naturally return to optimum and maximum health, allowing you to achieve your ultimate health and lifestyle goals.
Cleansing and detoxification are integral parts of restoring balance to the body and keeping it operating optimally. Our body's natural detoxification systems (largely the digestive system, liver and kidneys) are constantly working to cleanse our bodies. But problems can occur due to system or organ failure or simply toxic overload.
Body cleansing is the process of ridding the body of the unwanted or unhealthy toxins that accumulate within us. It is a natural remedy for rejuvenating the body. Although the cleansing or detox process can be done in several different ways, ideal methods are all-natural and do not add to the body's toxic burden. A natural cleanse or detox with safe, medicinal herbs can help your body get back in balance by cleansing out toxins, impurities, and other unwanted rubbish that has accumulated over time. Once restored to its natural, healthy state, your body will naturally continue to flush out toxins daily. Herbal cleansing and detoxification have long been used as natural, effective ways to restore balance to the body, achieve and maintain optimal health, and prevent disease.
There are a wide range of reported benefits of nutritional cleansing, including:
- • Assistance in reaching and maintaining optimum weight
- • Dramatic weight loss and reduction of the abdomen
- • Improved digestion and bowel function
- • Internal cleansing of liver, kidneys, colon, and blood cells
- • Healthy levels of blood pressure and cholesterol
- • Clearer, healthier, younger-looking skin
- • More energy and better concentration
- • Increased resistance to diseases
- • Feeling energized and regaining optimum health
- • And much more!
PLUS…All-Natural Weight Loss!
By cleansing and detoxing, you can restore proper nutrient absorption, increase your metabolism and energy, and bolster your commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
When your body is burdened with toxic overload and being robbed of essential nutrients, you can experience major health problems, including relentless weight gain and serious difficulty losing and maintaining weight loss? All-too-often, this leads to a vicious cycle of persistent feelings of hunger, unrelenting cravings, poor food choices, and chronic overeating of high calorie, high fat but low nutritious foods and beverages…which, in turn, saps you of your energy and willpower to eat healthy and exercise.
What's more, excess weight around the abdomen or belly can be caused by impacted waste stuck to the inside wall of the colon and small intestine. When this is the case, no amount of exercise or dieting can shrink the size of your abdomen. Very few of us realize how much waste we are packing around with us in our intestines. From time to time, is it a good idea to rid your body of this buildup of toxins with a natural colon cleanse. Not only will you feel better, you will look better too!
