6 Detox Water To Improve Digestion

6 Detox Water To Improve Digestion



Staying hydrated is key for good digestion. It promotes regular bowel movements and helps flush harmful toxins out of the body.  While this can be accomplished by drinking regular tap or bottled water, did you know that by adding a few ingredients to your H2O you can transform drinking water into detox water and up the benefits?

Detox water is made by adding fresh fruits, vegetables and/or herbs to ice water and then letting the ingredients soak for a few hours (at least two hours) in the refrigerator. The longer the fruits, vegetables and/or herbs soak in the ice water, the more nutrients you will drink!
Some detox water recipes include several ingredients, while others only include one. Each ingredient adds its own health benefit ranging from weight loss to boosting energy levels, detoxing the liver, detoxing the kidneys, improving digestion, etc. 

Below is an infographic highlighting 6 detox water ingredients that help improve digestive health.  You can simply add one of the following ingredients to your ice water and drink up, or you can add several ingredients to your detox water (see detox water recipes below).
