The Benefits of Detox Water


According to an article by
healthline, our bodies are designed to naturally rid themselves of any toxins through a complex process involving the liver, kidney, digestive system, skin, and lungs. Increasing your water intake, along with adding natural ingredients to your water, can help boost the effectiveness of your natural detoxification system.

Lemon Ginger WATER

HEALTH BENEFITS

Lemons have many health benefits, the first being that they are loaded with vitamin C. Lemons are also one of nature’s antioxidants, which means they help release oxidative stress. Many diseases, like cancer, cardiovascular issues, and neurological diseases, have been linked to oxidative stress. Lemons are also a natural anti-inflammatory, increase iron absorption, and help to strengthen the skin, hair, and nails.

Ginger, like lemons, helps to relieve oxidative stress and inflammation. Ginger also works to lower blood pressure, treat nausea, fight fungal infections, and help relieve constipation.

INGREDIENTS

1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp. grated ginger
32 oz. filtered or hydrogen water

INSTRUCTIONS

Add the lemon juice and grated ginger to the water and drink throughout the day.

STRAWBERRY BASIL WATER

HEALTH BENEFITS

Strawberries are a great source of vitamins and minerals. Strawberries are high in vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium. Strawberries are also loaded with antioxidants to help release oxidative stress. Strawberries can also help reduce inflammation and improve vascular function.

Basil has an amazing cleansing effect on the skin and helps to remove dirt and oils that clog the pores. Basil also helps prevent fat buildup in the liver, which will help speed up the detoxification process of your liver.

3 fresh strawberries
1 lemon wedge
½ lemon, juiced
1 handful fresh basil leaves

Blueberries are often referred to as “superfood.” Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants and are packed with vitamin C and potassium. Doctors recommend blueberries because they can lower the risk of heart disease and cancer.

¼ cup blueberries
16 oz. filtered or hydrogen water

HEALTH BENEFITS

Raspberries are high in fiber and low in carbs. They are a great way to indulge your sweet tooth without adding toxins like refined sugar. 

Oranges are a major source of vitamin C. High levels of vitamin C have been shown to improve colon function, which helps rid the body of free radicals. Oranges can also improve the skin and help you look younger. The level of citric acid in oranges can help improve kidney function and lower your risk of kidney stones.

Mint has been shown to help boost digestive function. Mint helps improve gut function and stomach issues such as constipation, nausea, and in some cases, IBS.

1 cup raspberries
1 orange, sliced
3 mint leaves (add more for a stronger flavor)

HEALTH BENEFITS

Apples have been shown to lower the risk of heart disease. According to healthline, apples are packed with flavonoids, which can help prevent heart disease by lowering blood pressure. Apples also help to promote good gut function because it acts as a prebiotic, which increases good bacteria in your colon.

Cinnamon helps to boost your metabolism and according to Medical News Today, lowers the effects of high-fat meals. 2011 studies showed that people who participated in an “antioxidant spices”-rich diet experienced an increase in antioxidant activity and a decrease in insulin response.

INGREDIENTS

Ingredients:
1/4 Fuji apple, sliced (any apple will do, but we like Fuji because of its sweetness)
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
16 oz. filtered or hydrogen water

INSTRUCTIONS

Wash and thinly slice the apple. Add the ground cinnamon and apple slices to 16 ounces of water. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
