Detox diets are quite popular as a means to get rid of accumulated toxins in the body as well as for losing weight. Here we bring to you some detox drink recipes that you can easily prepare at home while following a detoxification diet.
When you know that it is high time that you give up on aerated, sugar-choked drinks and it is time to go on a detox trip, a blend of refreshing fruits and vegetables may just be what your body is craving for. Before a few simple recipes, let us look at what detoxification is all about.
Detoxification of the body refers to the process of elimination of toxins and other impurities that are present in the system. The body has its own system of eliminating toxins from the body. A detoxification diet just enhances this system and helps the body to get rid of toxins more easily.
One of the best way to detox the body is by having detox drinks. Most of these detox drinks contain fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. Fresh lemon juice, papaya juice, grapefruit juice, beet and carrot juice, wheatgrass juice, cabbage juice and ginger tea are some examples of natural detox drinks.
Detox drinks are known for their several health benefits, but they are also known for their strong and intense taste. For most people, it is a taste that is developed over time. But once you take to these healthy drinks, you will see the change immediately.
