Detox Water

Detox, the word that is commonly associated with weight loss and dieting. However, it’s a process of eliminating harmful effects on our body caused by our environmental pollution and our lifestyle choices. Hence, simple techniques adopted in our daily routines can help internal detoxification for healthy living. The process not only helps reduce free radicals in our body, but enhances our body’s resistance to seasonal diseases and also helps in our dieting process.

Benefits of detoxification include - the immune system is stimulated, the hormonal system is enhanced, dependency on substances such as sugar, caffeine, nicotine or alcohol can be reduced.

However there are no rules. Making detox waters for weight loss at home is easy. The basic ingredient to begin with is pure or tap water. Mix your favourite fat-burn ingredients like lemon, honey, water melon cubes, sliced cucumbers in large pitchers to let the water infuse. Allow the ingredients to sit in the water for 2 – 3 hours. This helps infuse strong flavours and more nutrients are leaked into water.

Another simple technique is to add lemon to your water through out the day. The citric acids in lemons assist the cleansing process. Citric acid works like bleach on fat. Further, adding lemon juice to water helps break down fat molecules due to its acidity and high ph level.

You can also add cinnamon to your detox water. Cinnamon improves the insulin secretion, stabilizes the blood sugar levels and increase the glucose metabolism – all these are key effects for losing weight. Combine it with honey and apple for a refreshing taste and a speedy fat burn. Few ideas for detox water –

APPLE WATER

Ingredients:

2 apples cut in thin slices

2 tsp pure honey

4 cinnamon sticks

4 cups pure/tap water

CITRUS WATER

Ingredients:

2 lemons cut in thin slices

1 handful fresh mint

4 cups pure/tap water

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large pitcher, add all ingredients, cover and let infuse for 2 - 3 hours. You may add ice cubes. But best to drink this at room temperature.
