Whether you’re trying to steer clear of the sugary drinks, or aim to really help your body flush out any toxins lurking in your system, this refreshing blend of fruits will satisfy your taste buds.
Watermelon and Cucumber: Watermelon 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. Citrulline gets rid of harmful toxins. Cucumber also contains citrulline which gives your liver a cleansing boost!
Lemon or Lime: Lemon or lime juice helps stimulate and regulate the digestive track.
Mint Leaves: Mint leaves are a nice refreshing flavor to add to your drink. Mint also helps relax cramped stomach muscles and promotes digestion.
Water: H20 is just all around good for us, it flushes out nasty toxins and waste through our system, and helps organs do their job.
Directions For Detox Water: All you need is watermelon, cucumber, lemon, lime, mint leaves, and some water. If you prefer a more berry experience, just grab some blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Throw a good amount of fruit into a jug or pitcher. Add a handful of fresh mint leaves, and pour in 2 liters of cool water, filling the jug all the way to the top. Chill overnight in the refrigerator, and let all the yummy flavors infuse the water. Drink and enjoy daily. Be healthy and beautiful, starting from the inside out.
