Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a safe and meaningful Christmas with your loved ones. Work has kept me so busy that I haven’t had the time to update the blog in two weeks. But I’m back and I’m excited to talk about a product that seems very timely for the holidays: Kankunis Herbal Tea. They sent over a gift package that contained a cute mug with my name, wild honey, a sleep mask, and three jars of tea. Their brand has always been quite familiar because it was a staple in our household as I was growing up. There are a number of Kankunis Herbal Tea benefits that my family members took advantage of. And if you think this could be a good addition to your daily routine, read more about Kankunis below!
What is Kankunis Herbal Tea
According to their website, Kankunis is the first slimming tea in the market. It’s manufactured by Tai Ping Trading Co. Ltd. and distributed by REJ Diamond Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It’s made with senna leaves—a popular herbal remedy often marketed as a laxative, weight loss aid, and detox method.
Kankunis Herbal Tea Benefits
The most common application for Kankunis is to stimulate bowel movement and alleviate constipation (Source: Healthline). This is especially helpful during the holidays when we tend to stuff ourselves silly with our favorite food from Noche Buena or New Year’s Eve dinner. The primary active compounds in Kankunis’ main ingredient, senna leaves, are known as senna glycosides. TeaHow shares that these can’t be absorbed in our digestive tract, but can be broken down by our gut bacteria. This breakdown mildly irritates the cells in our colon—an effect that stimulates intestinal movement and produces a laxative effect. So if you feel discomfort or a stomach ache a few hours after drinking Kankunis, don’t be scared! It’s a normal reaction and something that goes away after doing a number two.
How to Use Kankunis
To use Kankunis, simply place one tea bag in a cup of hot water and steep for 10 to 15 minutes. The tea’s flavor may be an acquired taste, so if you’re still getting used to it, you can add sugar, honey, or a squeeze of lemon. For best results, drink Kankunis before bedtime to let it work overnight. It should culminate an urge to go to the toilet the next morning.
Kankunis is generally safe for adults over 18 years old. However, it’s not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. To be safe, consult with your family doctor on how much you should be drinking Kankunis and for how long.
