Detox Water: What Is It and What Are Its Benefits?

 

By Rebecca Jacobs

Detox water is a big trend and with good reason. If you aren’t familiar with it, detox water is water that boosts your body’s natural ability to detoxify itself. It comes in many different flavors and can easily be made at home with just a few simple ingredients. Make it with fresh fruit, herbs, and spices, and you’ll be surprised by how refreshing and delicious it can be. Try some daily to give your liver the help it needs to flush out all those yucky toxins.

 

Its health benefits are many. Here are just a few:

 

Liver Flush

Our livers are equipped to help our bodies eliminate built-up toxins. When our bodies are over-taxed with artificial and processed foods and the chemicals we come in contact with on a daily basis, toxins can easily become stuck. Drinking water full of fresh and detoxifying ingredients helps the liver flush out those stored toxins.

 

Skin Health

Hydration is super important for overall skin health, and certain foods can actually improve the health of our skin. Drinking deliciously flavored water may help increase the amount we drink daily, which will hydrate the skin making it look younger and refreshed. Ingredients such as cucumbers are also known to aid skin rejuvenation.

 

Weight Loss

With any healthy detox comes natural and healthy weight loss. When our bodies are able to rid themselves of stored waste, they shed weight more easily. Try making detox water part of your regular routine, and you may notice your waist size getting a little smaller.
