The cucumber or lime or mint detox water is ideal for people who are looking to rehydrate or detoxify themselves. Here is how you can prep it up:
The Cucumber/Lime/Mint Detox Water Recipe
First off, it would be a good idea to purchase a gallon sized pitcher. This would allow your entire family to consume the drink without having to remake it from time to time. Here’s the complete list of ingredients you will need:
10 to 12 cups of water.
2 or 3 thinly sliced lemons.
One thinly sliced organic cucumber.
15 organic mint leaves.
Make sure to rinse the cucumber and the lemons before you slice them up. Once that is done, add the slices along with the mint into the pitcher. Add 10-12 cups of water, close the lid and place the pitcher in a refrigerator overnight. When you’d like to consume the detox water, all you need to do is pour the contents of the pitcher into a glass filled with ice and you are good to go. We would recommend you to have it every day in the morning on an empty stomach.
Here are some well documented benefits of consuming detox water:
Having detox water instead of your regular cup of coffee means that you are cutting down on all that caffeine intake. The combined effect of cucumber, lime and mint is bound to give you a fresh boost of energy and kick start vital functions inside your body to keep you active throughout the day.
When you detox your body early morning, your organs function at full efficiency - like they should! So that hearty breakfast that you are going to have will be absorbed better. When the food you eat gets digested well, your body will receive essential nutrients that it may otherwise miss out on. Moreover, cucumber and lemon are very helpful to the lymphatic system.
Chuck those expensive lotions and creams, they won’t give you long term results. There have been plenty of acne patients around the world who have benefited from detox water. Did you know that your skin also functions like an organ? The first few layers of skin contain a lot of toxins and residue from your daily activities. Detoxifying early in the morning releases these toxins from the pores of your skin, paving way for a glowing surface!
One of the main hurdles for people in a fast paced lifestyle is a blocked mind. Foods that are heavy in sugar and fat will increase the blood flow to your stomach and deprive your brain of enough blood circulation. Detox water is an ideal way of resetting this cycle and getting rid of that fogginess, allowing you to be more composed and focused.
The overall benefits of detox waters are many. Not only will they help your body and mind, but they taste great too. One of the many alternatives to drinking pop, coffee, or energy drinks is water. However, for many people, including myself, water gets boring.
I've tried flavored water, like Crystal Lite, Mio, Propel, and many others, and although they taste great with no calories, they contain of ton on unnatural chemicals. Not exactly what you need when you're looking to drink something "healthy". The best thing about detox water is that they are all natural, and of the many I've tried, cucumber/lime/mint is the most refreshing.
