Sometimes our body needs detoxification due to stress, a high-calorie diet, swelling, and many other problems. A post-holiday detox? It is just what it takes! Keep reading to discover the best detox drinks for you.
What does it mean to do a detox? We often need to purify our digestive system, accelerating the elimination of toxins, expelling excess fluids, and revitalizing our bodies. A detox cleanse helps to regain physical and mental well-being.
Detox water flavored with fruits and vegetables, vitamin smoothies, drinks rich in superfood or a light broth, here are 7 detox drinks useful to purify your body.
A lemon juice when you wake up
The action of the lemon on the secretion of bile acts in favor of the liver and, more generally, promotes digestion. Lemon contains soluble fiber, vitamin C, calcium and is an excellent antioxidant. In addition, as we already know, antioxidants are excellent for detox cleanse. Lemon has beneficial effects on blood sugar and fat assimilation.
A green smoothie
Parsley is an incredible source of vitamin C, a great help for our body. To absorb a generous amount of parsley, strain it with fruit rich in fiber, such as apple. The recipe for this green smoothie? Take organic apples and mix them with ten tufts of parsley. If you are not a fan of parsley, complete your detox drink with spinach leaves or cucumber.
The inevitable green tea
Green tea has always been an excellent detox tea and a source of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals (the aggressors of our cells) and therefore helps to preserve young skin. No need to drink 2 liters of tea to benefit from these virtues, a couple of cups will be enough. Remember: tea is a very diuretic, so don’t abuse it and alternate it with water.
Among the best detox drinks for the body, you should consider ginger tea, which is a tea-free hot drink considered a good alternative to green tea.
Another good choice between detox drinks is fruit juice. It is a good source of antioxidants, vitamins, and other energy stimulators of micronutrients, without the high calorie intake. It is better to prefer vegetable juices to fruit juices, which contain more sugar (although natural), and drink your juice immediately after you have prepared it to take all the nutrients.
A beet smoothie
Beet contains real treasures of nutrition if eaten raw. We especially love it for its content of vitamin B, vitamin C, and many trace elements. It is the revitalizing vegetable par excellence, and it is rich in fiber. How to prepare it in a detox drink? Mixing it with a little celery, cucumber, carrot, and apple.
Now it is a real trend! Very easy to prepare and effective. You can put in your water jug kiwi, cucumber, lemon and let them soak a little.
