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.
