Lemon Cucumber Detoxifying Water:
5 Minute Recipe
Here is a recipe for a quick lemon water detox drink that will help flush your system of toxins. It’s a refreshing recipe and I hope you love it.
How this drink detoxifies you:
Cucumbers rejuvenate you through energy-boosting vitamin B. It also contains a lot of fiber that aids in removing toxins from the body, as well as aiding digestion.
The ginger aids digestion and also has anti-inflammatory properties. There was a study done that followed people who consumed two grams of ginger each day for about eleven days. It turned out those people had a 25% drop in exercise-induced muscle pain. SO DRINK THIS!
Lemons clean your bowels, and neutralize free radicals that cause aging. Huge Bonus…lemons also contain 22 anti-cancer properties.
Mint promotes good digestion and contains enzymes that could prevent cancer.
Now let’s make this & start to detox!
- ½ a cucumber, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- ¼ of a peeled and sliced ginger root
- ½ cup mint leaves
- Cut everything up and add it into a pitcher!
- NOTE: Don’t add too much ginger. I only added three small chunks into the water.
- You can keep refilling the pitcher with water for about 3-4 days before you need to replace the ingredients.
