When you hear the word “DETOX”, you might have a tendency to freak out and think “this will be really hard.” Or you may think you’ll have to stay home next to a bathroom all day!
But detoxes really aren’t that scary.
The truth is, your body has its own natural detoxification system that runs every day through your kidneys, liver, and lymphatic system. That system is fueled by your nervous system and your endocrine system (aka your hormones). It is designed to excrete unwanted chemicals, pesticides, oxidized cells, and more.
While some people may be in need of a major detoxification regimen from time to time, everyone can give their natural detoxification system a boost with a simple water recipe drank daily.
Your body is made up of 90% water, so it’s imperative that you make sure you’re drinking enough every day. Below are 4 different ingredients you can add to your water to aid your body’s natural detoxification. You’ll reap many benefits, including more energy; clearer, hydrated skin; regular digestion; boosted metabolism and more!
Cucumber Water Recipe : Wash and cut an organic cucumber into thin round slices, and add it to your regular water. Keep sipping it throughout the day to keep your body hydrated. Cucumber contains anti-inflammatory properties, which also help to curb acne.
Ginger Water Recipe: Ginger root cleanses your system completely. It aids in digestion and perfects your metabolism. This is also very important to avoid skin breakouts and acne. Simply cut it into julienne slices and add it to your water. Ginger is very potent, so be sure to add in small amounts until you’re comfortable with the taste.
Mint Water Recipe: Mint is very good for digestion; it also helps to eliminate toxins in the stomach. It also adds a sweet taste and fresh aroma to your water, making it an instantly refreshing drink. All you need is a few leaves!
Lemon Water Recipe: Lemon not only cleanses the body, but alkalizes too. Add a couple of thinly sliced lemons into a jug of water for extra vitamin C and reap the benefits of natural detoxification!
