I wanted to redo my How To Make Detox Water video for you since my brother (who is a major video producer) told me that the last video I made about detox water, basically…”sucked.”
LOL, he was right, it was hard to see my camera angles were all off.
So here for you is a nice clear video on How to Make Detox Water.
Below the video are written instructions, which also include the great properties of the ingredients in this water!
Hope this helps!
How to Make Detox Water
How To Make Detox Water:
- Fresh mint from the garden (if you don’t have an herb garden, you can buy organic mint at most stores)
- One half orange sliced
- One half grapefruit sliced.
To make: Cut up the half orange and half grapefruit into quarters. Slice the mint in half or quarters to open up the flavor. Toss everything in a 64 ounce glass pitcher (or any BPA-free pitcher). Stir it all around for a few seconds. Let it sit for at least 5 to 10 minutes for later the flavors enhance the water.
Voila, you have your very own amazing detox water. And you can fill up your own BPA free bottles and tote it to yoga or the gym with you, instead of wasting money on bottled water!
What Makes This Detox Water So Good?
Oranges: Firstly, oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C. One single medium orange gives you about 3/4 of your daily requirement for vitamin C. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant and protects your body from the damage caused by free radicals generated in the body. It also reduces inflammation, strengthens the immune system and protects against colds and coughs and other common infections.
Mint: Mint acts as a stimulant for the digestive system, kicking enzymes into action and promoting optimal functioning of the body’s metabolism. Less fat is stored and more calories are burned by the simple addition of mint to one’s diet. Mint can provide relief for nausea as well as it helps to settle an upset tummy.
Grapefruit: Red or Yellow, it doesn’t matter which you choose. Grapefruit minimizes acidity in the system. The bitter properties arising from an essence called narigin in grapefruits tones up the system and the digestive process. Naringin is also considered a flavonoid which has antiviral, anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory qualities, strengthening the immune system and protecting against the flue and other infections!
So give my detox water a try, and experiment a bit by adding other things if you like. I suggest cucumber, parsley, or lemon as well!
