Thirsty Thursday: Detox Water

October 1, 2014

We all know that our body is most likely composed of 75% water. Having said that, it just makes perfect sense that we continually replenish this element to keep our bodies functioning. 

Today I share with you my at home easy Detox Water Recipe!!! Yey! 

For more info, check out these 10 REASONS why you should give it a try:

1. Promotes Fresher Breath

We don't want any dragon breath girlfriends! Detox Water contains mint leaves, cucumber and lemon  that will certainly leave you with fresh breath. Those ingredients stabilizes the level of acidity  and ph in the mouth.

2. Ensures balanced pH Levels in the Body

While it seems like a counter-intuitive move, drinking fresh lemon juice is actually good for maintaining a balanced pH level in the body. Most people assume that lemons are highly acidic, when in fact they have incredible alkalizing properties.

3. Improves digestive function

Detox water helps in keeping the digestive system on tract, which allows food to be digested properly (and more quickly). This is highly beneficial to those who often suffer from indigestion, bloating, and heartburn, all of which can be painful and inconvenient.

4. Strengthened immune system

Detox water aids in keeping the immune system alert and strong against malaldies such as common colds and the flu. The adage “prevention is better than cure” could not be more true in this case because people can very well avoid these types of ailments if they take better care of their health.

5. Promotes skin repair

Haven't you noticed that lately, skin care brands are infusing their products with natural ingredients derived from lemons, cucumbers and more? So imagine drinking the benefits of those instead of slathering them on your skin? The process of detoxing allows proper cell regeneration, which then manifests by way of glowing and younger looking skin. Vitamin C also promotes the production of collagen, which is a type of protein that is responsible for the skin’s elasticity. It is a well known fact that skin elasticity begins to decline once a person hit 40 (or sooner for some people depending on their genes and lifestyle). Drinking a glass of water with lemon juice daily is more preferable to getting a face lift because it is all-natural and it costs next to nothing. People who have not been taking care of their skin well over the years should start this simple morning ritual and get reap the benefits outright.

6. Cleanses and revitalizes the urinary tract

Water is a natural diuretic , making a daily habit of drinking it ensures that you have a cleaner (and more functional) urinary tract. In the long run, this would also have cumulative detoxing effects since the body disposes waste materials through urine. Flushing out liquid waste at a much faster rate reduces the risk of accumulating bacteria in the body, thus preventing a number of diseases such as urinary tract infection and many others.

7. Detoxifies the liver

The liver is the body’s primary cleaner, which means it shoulders a lot of grunt work in order to keep the entire system from shutting down. For people who live less than healthy lives, the liver often needs help to clean up all the sludge and regain the body’s status quo. Drinking lemon water daily ensures the increased production of bile, which is a substance necessary for digestion. 

8. Promotes faster healing and regeneration

Vitamin C happens to be one of the most important components in cell regeneration, which is a necessary step in keeping the body healthy. A healthy supply of vitamin C ensures stronger bones and teeth, healthier skin, better eyesight, and better joints. The body heals itself on a daily basis (during REM sleep), but it can always use the extra boost, especially for people advancing in years.

9. Effectively curbs appetite

For people who are desperately trying to lose weight but are often overcome by nagging cravings and urges to binge, the daily lemon juice-water routine is a great trick to use. Not many people are aware that lemon juice works well in terms of curbing a person’s appetite, thereby allowing him/her to effectively lose weight. In fact, most at-home detox diets involve the use of freshly squeezed lemon juice, which is not only good for getting rid of toxins but also for reducing appetite for solid foods. The lemon juice allows you to feel full and satisfied for longer periods, which eliminates snacking in-between meals.

10. Improved overall health and wellbeing

Lemon juice simply brings countless health benefits, such as lowered cholesterol levels, normalized blood pressure, reduced blood sugar level, and improved blood flow. In addition, it also helps avoid depression and anxiety so your mental health can benefit from the daily lemon water routine as well.
It is amazing how one glass of water with lemon juice can change people’s lives, if they only keep up with the daily habit. Starting today would certainly be a great idea.
