What is the secret behind Japanese longevity?
Someone asked me an interesting question recently: “Dr. Ishiguro, what is the secret behind the famous Japanese longevity?” And the answer is… Detoxing.
Detoxing is so important because it helps cleanse your body of toxins. You see, whenever your body is riddled with toxic substances, your immune system stops functioning at full capacity. And this can take a massive toll on every single cell inside your body.
But the Chinese doctors realized the importance of the detox process and of its purifying effects.
And they did it by using the Tea of the Kings
It’s called this way because the Chinese nobility has been using it since the dawn of time to mark their royal status.
The Buddhist monks have been using it to prevent sleepiness during their long hours of meditation.
But the incredible benefits of this tea go way beyond that. You see, the Chinese nobility believed that this magical brew could heal them from a variety of ailments.
Even the Japanese saw its incredible potential. So, as a sign of their appreciation, they created the Tea Ceremony, also known as The Way of the Tea.
And that was a laborious ceremony in which the practitioners prepared and then savored the powdered green tea.
But let’s get back to present day.
When you go to the market, you see aisles literally stacked with all sorts of teas. And then you find yourself spending minutes trying to decide which tea you should buy…
I, for one, like to grow my own plants and herbs. This has been an active hobby of mine for many years. And the best part yet is that it gives me the chance to spend more time with my grandchildren.
But, if you don’t have the time or space to grow your own plants, I will tell you which teas have the most powerful detoxifying effect and amazing benefits for your overall health.
Best Detox Teas
The Tea Of the Kings
For centuries, the green tea has been the favorite type of tea among Asian royalty. And this won’t come as a surprise for you considering its mile-long list of benefits:
- Reduces atherosclerosis and risk of heart disease
- Lowers high blood pressure
- Optimizes cholesterol levels
- Fights the inflammation in arthritis cases
- Improves bone density
- Boosts cognition and memory
- Prevents cancer
- Accelerates your metabolism

I recommend you drink it every morning because it contains caffeine and it naturally fills you up with that much-needed energy.
It also prepares your stomach for the day, detoxing your body of impurities and helping you digest food easier.
