Best detox drinks
The following are a few options of the best detox drinks to clear skin, weight loss, and better health curated for you.
1. Haldi ginger tea
The concoction of black tea with turmeric and ginger is one of the most effective drinks. It helps in improving your immunity and reducing inflammation. This cleanses your gut thereby improving your health.
2. Giloy water
Giloy is considered the best medicine for different ailments. This ayurvedic herb could be used in powder form or juice. Another option is to boil water with Giloy juice. Try this for fifteen days and see the difference.
3. Warm water with lemon and honey
This is one of the most effective and commonly used detox drinks to clear skin. The nutritional benefits of honey and Vit C content of lemon make it an ideal detox drink. There is a myth that consuming this will aid in weight loss. Merely consuming this will not help you lose weight. Top it with a healthy diet and exercise for the results.
4. Cumin water
Boil water with raw or roasted cumin. This is the best detox for those who are susceptible to acidity. Jeera water/cumin water is effective not only as a morning detox but as a drink throughout the day instead of plain water
5. Green tea
This is one of the best detox drinks that are commonly consumed. The benefits of green tea could account for yet another blog post.
6. Cucumber-mint water
This is a cooling concoction. Cucumber and mint are both quite effective for soothing our minds. Try this before bedtime to have a good night’s sleep.
7. Fenugreek water
Soak fenugreek overnight in water and drink it in the morning. You can either consume it whole or seive the fenugreek out. If you have low blood pressure, avoid this drink as it reduces BP.
8. Sugarfree coffee
This is a controversial topic. Many dietitians and nutritionists don’t recommend drinking coffee as they believe that caffeine might affect bowel movements. But on the other hand, another set of experts believe that it is ideal for weight loss. We fall in the latter category.
9. Apple Cider Vinegar
The acetic acid present in apple cider vinegar helps in increasing the metabolism thus enabling weightloss. In addition the detox properties of ACV aid in maintaining better health.
10. Chia seeds cinnamon water
This is my latest obsession. Put a stick of cinnamon in boiling water. Turn off the heat and put some chia seeds. Squeeze a lemon over it and drink it before going to bed or as a wake-up drink. This is a magical concoction. You can also soak chia seeds in plain water overnight and drink it in the morning. This is particularly helpful if you are following an intermittent fasting routine,
Apart from these magical drinks, there is one more bonus drink. Aloe vera juice. Take 30ml of concentrated aloe vera juice and mix it with 250 ml of water. Drink this on empty stomach. This is a marvelous health detox drink.
Apart from these, we can also opt for drinking stomach full of plain water. This is the easiest and one of the best detox drinks to clear skin, weight loss, and health. Nonetheless don’t wait for the magic to happen by simply drinking this. You have to follow a proper diet and workout routine alongside.
