Water is an important part of any diet and exercise program, as well as every other bodily function you can imagine. Drinking water is hugely beneficial for weight loss. Studies regarding water and weight loss have even shown that just drinking water raises your metabolism. Also, drinking lots of water is also a best remedy for water retention. The body retains water as a response to not getting enough water in the first place. Perceiving a threat, the cells cling onto the water they have, causing swelling in our hands, feet, and legs. When we drink enough water, our cells can relax and do their job-without holding on to the scarce water.
But at times, it becomes difficult to drink 10 glasses of water in a day as it is tasteless. Hence, by using Detox water you can aim at flushing out any toxins in your system. The refreshing blend of foods and flavours in detox water satisfies the taste buds needs.
A refreshing mix of citrus fruits with cucumbers, ginger and mint leaves creates a powerful infusion of vitamins that will have your body feeling a little bit lighter by the end of the day.
Benefits of these ingredients are:
Mint leaves are refreshing and help you digest more effectively. Mint also helps relax cramped up stomach muscles.
Cucumber helps the body flush out toxins because it contains the organic compound citrulline, which is an amino acid that has been shown to help the liver and kidneys filter and get rid of ammonia.
Lemon are full of nutritious ingredients, especially vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. It also contains potassium, which helps support heart health. Lemons contain flavonoids too, which are plant pigments that are known to have strong antioxidant properties. That means they help protect your cells from damage.
Ginger is the spicy root helps cleanse out your system, aids in digestion, and settles your stomach.
Enjoy your drink and detox your body at the same time.
