3. Daily Cleansing Detox Water Recipe
- 1-2 liters ice cold water (depends on how strong you want it to taste)
- slices of watermelon and cucumber
- 1 lime or lemon
- fresh mint leaves (approximately 10-13)
How this recipe works:
– Mint promotes easy digestion and soothes stomach cramps.
– Lemon (or lime): Lemon or lime juice helps stimulate and regulate the digestive track. Also stimulates bile production and thins out bile, which allows it to flow more freely. Bile is produced by the liver and ends up in the small intestine to break down fats that we’ve consumed.
– Watermelon (or cucumber): Watermelon contains the organic compound citrulline, which helps the body flush out toxins.
