Bloating, weight gain, pale skin, and low energy – all these are signs that there is a build up of toxins in your body! If you Google solutions to this problem, the first thing that pops up is ‘Detox Water’, which is considered to be the ultimate gut cleanser and your gateway to weight loss. And ladies, trust us, it’s completely worth the hype.
We all know drinking lukewarm water is one of the best ways to start your day. It doesn’t just help to hydrate your body, but it also eliminates sluggishness and flushes out toxins from your body.
Unfortunately, drinking only water will not show you fabulous results. That’s why, you need to shake up your routine, and turn this plain jane water into the ultimate tonic that’ll enhance your metabolism and help you detox!
So what are the ingredients you need for this detox water? Read on to find out.
These simple kitchen ingredients will add more nutrients to your water, and help to flush out toxins from your body in no time:
1. Black pepper
Black pepper is more than a kitchen staple: when you consume this ingredient, it produces heat in your body. This thermal effect wakes up the organs from their slumber, and at the same time, revs up your metabolism! Black pepper is also a storehouse of vitamin A, K, C and minerals like calcium, potassium and sodium.
So if you are suffering from skin pigmentation, then sipping on black pepper-infused water will help you big time. It will help flush out accumulated toxins from your body, and make you feel happy and healthy!
Apart from that, black pepper also helps in boosting your immunity, and improves your vision.
If dry skin is your concern, then think no more, and add a tablespoon of honey in your glass of water. Honey not just adds the right amount of sweetness and flavour, but it also helps in tissue regeneration and energises your body in no time! That’s exactly why drinking warm water with honey is advised before a workout.
What’s more, it is also a hydrating agent, and your answer to glowing skin.
3. Cinnamon powder
Bloating is one of the most common issues we deal with, even more during our periods. Drink a warm glass of water infused with cinnamon powder to banish all your bloating woes!
According to a study published in the journal ‘Lipids in Health and Disease’, 16 weeks of oral consumption of cinnamon boosts metabolism and helps to shed those pounds fast!
We all know this nuskha has been done to death, but it’s one we must hold onto forever! So, if you already follow this ritual, do not drop it for anything in the world. It is your key to weight loss: yes, the enzymes that are present in lemon act as a ‘fat burner’ for your body!
What’s more, lemon water also helps to keep your insulin levels in check, thereby keeping your blood sugar levels in control. That also means your food is digested properly, and the energy released is distributed to every cell in the body, so that there’s no accumulation of fat!
5. Veggie and fruit cubes
This detox water is the most delicious way to lose weight! If you’re always in a hurry, just juice vegetables like cucumber, spinach, apple, berries, and freeze them in ice cube trays. Every morning, add a few ice cubes to a glass of water and drink it up!
It works like magic for weight loss, and at the same time, keeps your overall health in check! And ladies, it’ll also help you to deal with skin issues.
So lovely ladies, wait no more. Make your detox water with any of these five ingredients, and kickstart your weight loss journey today!
