The weather has been off and on lately, raining some days and sunny others. And to add to that, everyone has colds too-the whole coughing, runny nose jam so I have been making sure to drink plenty of water. My go-to-drink is a lemon detox water and it is not only very good for you, it get rid of toxins in your body. Detoxification is the removal of toxins from within a living organism. I like to think that I am keeping myself alive&well by drinking this beverage (its true!). The results of this detox drink have shown better digestion in the body, and it detoxifies the liver. It also helps repair the skin and improves the overall health and well-being. I started drinking lemon detox water after I watched a Blogilates YouTube video. Cassey Ho is my inspiration and I look up to her for fitness and health. She posted a video about Detoxifying yourself and I though I would try it! Here is what I put in my detox water. For 20 ounces of water I use:
a slice of lemon
2 slices of orange
3 slices of cucumber
and 4 mint leaves
Feel free to change it up for your preferation. sometimes the mint gets a little strong so i take some leaves out. I would say I keep the same cup and fruit for about 3 cups of water and then it just looses its flavour. Detox water is a great way to stay healthy&replenished, and is also super easy and affordable. So make sure you try it!
