Staying hydrated is important for health, and it is recommended, on average, to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. However, there are some who believe that adding extra ingredients to water boosts its health benefits. The result is known as Detox Water, and it is said to help the body get rid of toxins, aid in losing weight and improve energy levels.
What is Detox Water?
Detox Water is water that has been infused with the flavors of fresh fruits, vegetables or herbs. It is often referred to as fruit-flavored or fruit-infused water.
Due to the fact that Detox Water is made by infusing flavor, rather than juicing or blending, it contains very few calories which makes it a popular drink for a wide variety of detox programs. Detox Water is also often recommended in many weight loss plans in place of high-sugar drinks such as soda and fruit juice.
How to Make Detox Water?
It is super easy to make Detox Water at home and there are a lot of ways to flavor it including fruit combinations, vegetables and herbs. Simply chop up your ingredients and add hot or cold water. Obviously, the more of an ingredient you use, the stronger the flavor will become. Here are some delicious Detox Water flavors:
- Cucumber and mint
- Lemon and ginger
- Watermelon and mint
- Orange and lemon
- Strawberry and basil
If you are making a cold Detox Water, be sure to remove the ingredients after seeping for 12 hours so they don’t begin to decompose.
Does Detox Water Have Health Benefits?
Detox Water has many health benefits which include weight loss, toxin removal and natural detox, helping boost immune functions, aiding digestive health, increasing energy levels and improving the skin.
However, it is important to note that most of the above benefits come from drinking water itself. The ingredients used in making Detox Water don’t offer as many nutrients as eating them in their whole form.
Studies have shown that drinking water helps you lose weight, and this also applies to Detox Water. Water can temporary raise the body’s metabolic rate which buns more calories. People who drink the recommended amount of water as part of a weight loss program tend to lose more weight.
Water also improves digestive health. Keeping the system hydrated maintains regular bowel functions. Drinking plenty of water also helps food pass easily through the gut. Water can also improve mood and energy levels as hydration can help alleviate bad moods and headaches.
