Slimming Detox Water Benefits
Water: The most important ingredient is water! We all know that water is good for us and we also have heard it’s great for weight loss! Keeping hydrated boosts metabolism, aids in digestion, helps fill you up. (Not to mention drinking water is great for skin too).
Lime & Lemon: These citrus juices help with digestion and relieve bloating! (They have qualities similar to our own digestive enzymes).
Ginger: Ginger naturally calms the belly! The benefits of ginger are endless! It has anti-inflammatory properties, can help with fat burning and even boosts your immune system!
Oranges: Of course oranges contain Vitamin C but that’s not all, the carotenoids and flavonoids in oranges help eliminate toxins and stimulate the immune system.
Mint: Mint stimulates the digestive enzymes, soothes the belly and aids in digestion (and adds a great flavor!)
Cucumber: Cucumbers contain lots of vitamin A (antioxidants), C and the B vitamins. They are known for flushing out toxins! In addition, the electrolytes in cucumbers can reduce water retention!
