6 incredible Detox Ingredients

Strawberries – More than Just Tasty

The primary ingredient of this natural detox drink- strawberries, add great nutritional value to lemonade as this low-glycemic fruit is free from carbs but is at the same time packed with lots of vitamins- especially vitamin C. Vitamin C is particularly great for your skin and for boosting collagen production. In addition, strawberries are full of antioxidants, which are naturally detoxifying [1].

Lemons – In Most Detox Recipes

Adding lemon juice to a drink is perhaps the easiest way to make it detoxifying. Indeed, this citrus fruit is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants, which are great to boost fat burning, speed up digestion, and improve skin health [2].

Honey – Anti-inflammatory and Antibacterial

Instead of using sugar or artificial sweeteners, I use honey for every detox drink recipe. This is because honey is not only less processed but it is also a great detoxifying ingredient. This is due to the precious flavonoids, ascorbic acid, and phytochemicals contained in it. These phytochemicals make honey also a great anti-inflammatory ingredient. Moreover, due to its antibacterial properties, honey prevents bacterial infections in the body [3].

Cucumber – Hydrate to Flush Toxins

If you want to make your detoxifying drinks more hydrating, add some cucumber. That’s right! Cucumber is loaded with water and fiber, which is great for our cells and tissues. Moreover, its daily intake can increase your Vitamin C consumption by 4 percent. There are also several other essential minerals that are contained in cucumber flesh [4].

Apple Cider Vinegar – Great for Weight Loss

Apple cider vinegar is mostly recommended for weight loss, to treat skin problems like eczema and dry skin, and to lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels [5].

Mint – Holistic Healing

That particular refreshing fragrance of mint leaves is enough to tell you how soothing and naturally healing these leaves are. Mint has been in use for centuries due to its healing properties; whether it is digestive problems, asthma, common cold, headache, bad breath, or even weight loss, mint leaves extracts are beneficial to treat them all. For these reasons, mint is often added to a number of home detox drinks as well [6].

Do Detox Drinks Really Work?

Unfortunately, there isn’t much scientific evidence to confirm that detox drinks do actually work. If you’re generally healthy, your liver should be able to remove toxins from your system without the necessity of any external help.

However, detox drinks do contain some health-promoting ingredients, so they generally don’t hurt to consume and are an excellent alternative to a lot of other more sugary beverages. What are your thoughts on detox drinks? Let us know in the comments!
