Drinking Detox Water For Health

What would you say if I told you that one of your most powerful allies when it comes to weight loss isn’t the newest cardio science or a complicated “diet”, but … water?

That’s right. Good ol’ H20 can rev your metabolism, help you lose serious weight and maintain that flat belly. According to a study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, drinking 17 ounces of water daily increased the metabolic rate of study participants by 30 percent. Drink 1.5 liters of water a day — about six glasses — and you could burn 17,400 calories each year!

Combine plain water with proven fat-burning superfoods to create detox water, and you’ll have an elixir that energizes you, fights bloating and helps you achieve your weight loss goals. These Instagrammers have done just that. Fruits like berries, grapefruits, and apples have compounds in their peels and pulp that fry flab and prevent disease — deliciously!

As with any recipe you can adjust


GRAPEFRUIT MINT DETOX WATER

Aside from being as refreshingly tart as an Amy Schumer routine, grapefruit has serious health benefits: A study published in the journal Metabolism found that those who ate grapefruit for six weeks lost a full inch off their waistlines. Why? The fruit is rich in phytochemicals, a bioactive compound that burns fat. And mint has been known to suppress appetite. One study published in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine found that people who sniffed peppermint every two hours lost an average of 5 pounds a month!

APPLE LEMON MINT DETOX WATER

Lemon is a common detox ingredient for good reason: An antioxidant in its peel stimulates liver enzymes to help flush toxins from the body.

MINT MELON DETOX WATER

Stock up on the last of the summer watermelon while you can: It’s one of the very best fruits for fat loss, having been shown to improve lipid (fat) profiles and decrease the accumulation of body fat. What’s more, a Spanish study found that athletes who drank watermelon juice post-workout had less muscle soreness.

GOJI CUCUMBER MINT DETOX WATER

Goji berries add more than a sweet-and-tangy taste to your detox water: The superfood has a slimming effect! In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, participants were either given a single dose of L. barbarum, the plant from which goji berries are harvested, or a placebo after a meal. The researchers found that one hour after the dose, the goji group was burning calories at a rate 10 percent higher than the placebo group. The effects lasted up to 4 hours! (Just be wary of any unwanted side effects: The energizing fruits are known as “the Viagra of China.”)

Orange lemon mint detox water

Citrus fruits are classic detox water ingredients: They’re rich in the antioxidant D-limonene, a powerful compound found in the peel that stimulates liver enzymes to help flush toxins from the body and gives sluggish bowels a kick, according to the World Health Organization.

KIWI CUCUMBER MINT DETOX WATER

This refreshing green detox water contains a secret superhero: Kiwi has been shown to reduce bloating and constipation and improve immunity. Cucumber is not only refreshing, but it’s also high in vitamins C and K, so eat the veggie once you drain your glass.

LEMON CELERY CUCUMBER DETOX WATER

Add celery to any detox water and crunch away! It has six calories per stalk and full of vitamins A, C, and K, B vitamins, folate, and potassium, which diminishes water retention and aids muscle recovery, so you can get back in the gym sooner and burn more calories.

POMEGRANATE STRAWBERRY MINT

Pomegranates are the stuff of ancient legend, and for good reason: The seeds have three kinds of antioxidant polyphenols, including tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid, which all help fight and prevent damage to your body caused by free radicals.

Pomegranate strawberry mint detox water


WATERMELON LEMON DETOX WATER

Here’s your new sports drink: Watermelon is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that helps move lactic acid out of muscles, reducing pain and fatigue. Lemon’s appetite-suppressing effects will prevent you from ordering that cheeseburger you think you deserve.

FROZEN BERRY AND LEMON DETOX WATER

Dropping berries into any detox water is an excellent idea. Be they straw, blue, or black, they’re one of the best fat-burning foods. Using frozen berries gives any detox water a pleasing mocktail effect.

Frozen berry and lemon detox water


BANANA LEMON MANGO TOMATO DETOX WATER

It may look unlikely, but this is a brilliant combo: Bananas are a good source of prebiotic fiber, which helps feed good gut bacteria and improve digestion; lemon cleanses the body; mangos are packed with vitamin C, and tomatoes have cancer-fighting antioxidants. Just don’t forget to snack on the slices.

Banana lemon mango detox water


MINT ROSEMARY LEMON CUCUMBER DETOX WATER

A blend of savory and sweet, this detox water is good for staving off the munchies: Lemon and mint are natural appetite suppressants.

Mint rosemary lemon cucumber detox water


COCONUT PERSIMMON DETOX WATER

This one’s a great option for detoxing after a gluttonous meal: Persimmons are rich in toxin-mopping vitamins A and C and high in, ahem, elimination-speeding fiber. They also have a small amount of manganese, which is important in the metabolism of fats and protein.

I couldn’t find the exact recipe to this detox water. So what I did was I left a link to the base detox water and you can add whatever fruit you like.

Coconut detox water


WATERMELON WITH ALOE VERA

One of the great weight-loss secrets, aloe vera juice has been a mainstay in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. The juice helps maintain weight by balancing the digestive system and regulating female hormones; it’s also believed to enhance fertility!

Watermelon with aloe vera detox water


RASPBERRY LEMON DETOX WATER

The last time you saw this flavor combo, it was probably on a menu describing a super-caloric iced tea. Forget that and make this version, which will be refreshing and energizing without a sugar crash.

Raspberry lemon detox water


STRAWBERRY ORANGE DETOX WATER

Fat-burning berry + body-cleansing lemon. Add some seltzer if you like, to bring back childhood Fanta memories absolutely guilt free.

Strawberry orange detox water


GREEN APPLE MINT DETOX WATER

Green apple boasts the same appetite-suppressing effect as mint, so you’ll boost your satiety two-fold when you sip this water throughout the day: The water will fill your stomach, while the green apple keeps cravings at bay.

Green apple mint detox water


ORANGE LEMON LIME DETOX WATER

Three citrus fruits work together in this cleansing blend: All three are rich in D-limonene, which has been shown to have anti-cancer effects and soothe heartburn and acid reflux. It also flushes toxins and helps clear up irregularity.

Orange lemon lime detox water


RASPBERRY BLUEBERRY MINT DETOX WATER

This detox water has a fat-fighting double punch: Both raspberries and blueberries are loaded with polyphenols, powerful natural chemicals that burn fat — and even stop it from forming!

Raspberry blueberry detox water


PINEAPPLE DETOX WATER

They don’t get much simpler than this water, and we love that. We also love that it has the sweetness of a tropical cocktail at a fraction of the calories, and that pineapple is loaded with bromelain, an enzyme that quells inflammation throughout the body (i.e. bloat, flab, and aching muscles).

Pineapple detox water


THREE BERRY LEMON DETOX WATER

You’ve heard of the Wonder Twins? This detox water has the Wonder Quadruplets. As mentioned, the polyphenols in berries torch flab (and even stop its formation before it starts!), and the powerful amino acids in lemon detoxify the liver and speed wastes out of the body (the old-fashioned way).

Three berry detox water


LIME CHIA DETOX WATER

Lime is a soothing, cleansing veteran, but chia seeds are the hot upstarts of detox: They can stabilize blood sugar, boost weight loss, keep your hunger at bay and even help keep your body hydrated throughout the day: They expand to as much as 10 times their size when in liquid, helping you feel full and reducing your appetite!

Lime chia detox water


DETOX WATER PARTY!!!

Even if you’re rolling with a smaller crew, note: Melon is a natural diuretic that reduces bloating, pineapple and strawberry burn fat, and mint reduces appetite. Take this as a cue to experiment with flavors of your own.


BLUEBERRY LEMONADE DETOX WATER

Skip the sugary, syrupy soft-drink version and go for cleansing freshness at a fraction of the calories. Drop in a few sprigs of mint for a natural appetite suppressant.

Blueberry lemonade detox water


APPLE LEMON LIME DETOX WATER

We’d happily lift this antioxidant-packed stein. Apples are one of the best fat-burning fruits; leave the peels on and snack away once you’ve drained your glass.

Apple lemon lime detox water


MANGO GINGER DETOX WATER

This one’s a powerful bloat-fighter, thanks to fresh ginger. Used for thousands of years to ease queasy tummies and aid digestion, you’ll find mentions of ginger in Chinese medical texts from the fourth century BC! Researchers say ginger acts as a muscle relaxant that allows the body to more easily expel gas. You can get your ginger fix in a variety of forms, though fresh ginger is richest in gingerol—the compound that contributes to many of the spice’s health benefits.

Mango ginger detox water


GRAPEFRUIT LEMON DETOX WATER

Forget chemical-laden Fresca. Pour plain seltzer over fresh grapefruit and lemon for an energizing, fat-burning elixir.

Grapefruit lemon detox water


CARROT PERSIMMON DETOX WATER

Now here’s an orange drink worth downing by the bottle. Carrots are spiked with carotenoids—fat-soluble compounds that are associated with a reduction in a wide range of cancers, as well as reduced risk and severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. Persimmons are rich in vitamins A, C and the antioxidant lycopene, an antioxidant which may reduce the risk of cancer.

Carrot detox water

This recipe is a bit different as i couldn’t find the exact recipe. The link i included has a lot more anti-inflammatory ingredients.


FIG STRAWBERRY DETOX WATER

This water may not help you get ripped, but the nutrients figs contain, including potassium, help your muscles work. They’re also a great source of fiber, which will help slow digestion and keep you feeling fuller, longer.

Fig strawberry detox water


APPLE CINNAMON DETOX WATER

Who knew apple cinnamon could work as well in water as it does in oatmeal? It’s a good thing: Cinnamon balances blood sugar and wards off insulin spikes, which protects you from the munchies.

Apple cinnamon detox water


APPLE MANDARIN MINT CHIA DETOX WATER

Don’t leave mandarin oranges to Aunt Sassy’s Waldorf Salad. Two Japanese studies showed that eating mandarins reduced participants’ incidence of liver cancer. It’s theorized that’s due to oranges’ high level of carotenoids, the pigment that gives the fruit its color and functions as a potent antioxidant, mopping up free radicals and repairing DNA damage that can cause disease.

*found a recipe on Pinterest but for some reason, my Pinterest wasn’t working properly so I couldn’t leave the link just search (apple mandarin mint chia detox water and tons of options will pop up)*


STRAWBERRY PEAR BLUEBERRY KIWI DETOX WATER

The tropical backdrop isn’t the only thing we love about this one: Aside from fat-burning berries and bloat-fighting kiwi, pears contain catechins, antioxidants that hinder the storage of belly fat!
