25 Detox Water Recipes Up Your Water Game


Drinking detox water makes you look and feel healthier and there is no better way to flush out unwanted toxins than by drinking the recommended daily dose of water each day. Enriching plain water with any combination of fruits and vegetables boosts its taste, flavor, and adds additional healthy benefits to your water drinking routine.

Roughly 60% of the human body is made of water, ensuring you drink enough water everyday is essential for every bodily function. Water helps regulate body temperature, metabolizes and transports food throughout the body, flushes out harmful toxins, and acts as a joint lubricant.

Studies have shown that water can work as a natural appetite suppressant when had before meals and drinking one glass of water increased resting metabolism a remarkable 24-30% within 10 minutes of drinking water. But even with all these incredible health benefits, most people just aren't drinking enough water.

And who would blame them? Water is not the most exciting drink to consume. For most of the population, it is tasteless and boring, so this is where detox water saves the day with a different mixture possible for everyday of the week.

Truth be told, detox water is not a miracle. Your body efficiently gets rid of harmful components absorbed by your body all the time. The key is to provide your body with the powerful nutrients it needs and detox water is the perfect answer to a bland glass of water, as well as a healthy and delicious alternative to sugary sodas.

These 25 detox water recipes are portable, a breeze to make and they will keep you hydrated all day long.
