How To Detox with Infused Water

Share Tweet Pin

Drinking water by itself can flush the body of toxins, but added with fruit and a few simple ingredients you can transform your water into detox water...with even more benefits!

Detox is such a buzz word, and most of us equate it with deprivation. However, its simple definition is the process of cleansing the blood and internal organs. The target toxins, or "culprits," are sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine, and alchohol. When these toxins, are compiled in your body, you often feel lathargic, fatigued, and down right crummy. A water detox is an easy (and delicious) way to get those toxins out, without going on a crazy cleanse.

Benfits of Detox Water: 

Flushes the toxins from your system

Helps with metabolism 

Reduces muscle fatigue while working out 

Helps you to recover after a workout 

Naturally helps your body release fat cells 

Full of flavor, virtually zero calories 

 

Summer is the perfect time to start a detox program, especially since many of these fruits are in season! So, here are some of our favorite infused waters to detox with!
