Hot summer days can be hard to bear for most people, and even though everyone knows how important it is, they don’t always stay as hydrated as they should.
What most people don’t know, however, is that plain old water isn’t the only thing that will keep you healthy and hydrated.
It’s also possible to hydrate your body by drinking infused water, which has incredible health benefits, and even aids weight loss!
This recipe calls for three natural ingredients: ginger, lemon and cucumber. Each one of them plays a very important role:
Ginger is a root that helps detoxify the body and improve bowel movements, which in turn benefits the metabolism, stimulates fat burning and prevents fluid retention.
Lemon purifies, and helps eliminate toxins from the body, cleansing it in an all natural way. And since it contains a lot of vitamin C and antioxidants which strengthen the immune system, it’s widely used in disease prevention.
Cucumber is very rich in water, minerals and antioxidants that help hydrate the body and maintain proper bowel function.
Together in this drink, lemon, cucumber and ginger complement each other and come together to eliminate toxins from your body and help you lose weight, while hydrating and improving your overall health.
Here’s how to make this delicious drink:
You will need:
1 lemon or lime;
½ of a cucumber;
½ of a piece of ginger;
1 fresh mint sprig;
1 glass of water (200 ml);
Wash lemon, cucumber, ginger and mint leaves well.
Cut them into small pieces without peeling them and place them in a jar with the water. Put the jar in the fridge overnight. On the next day, strain it and drink your detox water.
It is recommend that you drink this detox water every morning on an empty stomach, and throughout the day, at least half an hour before every meal.
Don’t use the ingredients that you strained from your drink again. Use fresh ingredients every time you prepare your infused water.
