Cleansing teas contain herbal ingredients intended to remove toxins from the body to promote a healthier digestive system. According to Consumer Reports, no evidence has been presented that proves that cleansing teas are beneficial for the human body. Cleansing teas that contain laxative ingredients should not be used on a regular basis because they put you at risk for dehydration and electrolyte imbalances.
