What concept is behind this word that tends to become overused: detox? A need to cleanse his digestive system or his liver, to accelerate the elimination of toxins, to reinvigorate his body. Detox water, vitamin smoothie, drink rich in great food or light broth, here are 5 detox drinks to rebooster your body. See you in the kitchen!
1. Lemon juice in the morning
Its action on bile secretion acts in favor of the liver and, more broadly, promotes digestion. Lemon contains soluble fiber, vitamin C, calcium and is an excellent antioxidant for the liver. And, as we now know, antioxidants are excellent for detox (and also rejuvenation).
Lemon has beneficial effects on blood sugar and fat dissolution. Detox drinks are made with a lemon and lukewarm water!
How? Take a lemon juice every morning at sunrise, with a little warm water or at room temperature (but especially not cold to keep your intestines clean!). And wait about 10 minutes after drinking this sour juice before taking your breakfast.
2. An apple-parsley smoothie
Parsley is an incredible source of vitamin C, so let’s not miss it to give our body and liver a boost. And to absorb a generous amount, mix it with a fruit interesting for its fiber content, the apple, and some mint leaves.
The recipe for this green smoothie? Take organic apples so you can keep the skin full of vitamins (and non-organic apples being the most polluted fruits in pesticides), and mix with a dozen sprigs of parsley and mint. If you are not a fan of parsley, other ingredients are possible to compose your detox drink like cucumber or spinach leaves.
3. The wonderful green tea
Green tea appears as an excellent source of antioxidants – which help fight free radicals (the aggressors of our cells!) and thus help preserve our youth capital.
No need to drink 2 liters of tea to enjoy these virtues, one or two cups will suffice. And know that tea is one of these very diuretic drinks, so do not overdo it, and alternate with water. But tea is a zero calorie drink, and it is these drinks to always have in his kitchen!
How to drink it? Contrary to what we believe, green tea still contains tea (= caffeine), so be sure to consume it before 4pm so as not to suffer its exciting effects. And to prepare a tea on top, pour simmer
4. Herbal tea with ginger
Among detox drinks good for the body, you can also adopt ginger tea. Past 16h or more often throughout the day, not to overdo the green tea, this hot drink without tea is a good alternative.
Which plants to concoct your tea? Dandelion if you are reckless, otherwise opt for anise, or lime sapwood with a few mint leaves.
And to promote their detox effects, take these drinks out of meals.ing water and not boiling
5. Don’t forget to drink water, simply
This may sound silly, but it is better to repeat the basics: water is an essential drink for your detox. Exit alcohol, coffee, sodas (worse than anything because stuffed with chemicals and sugar) very bad for the liver.
Drink water, at room temperature, and vary the pleasures according to the micro-nutrients your water contains. Waters full of perfect magnesium at the end of winter, waters rich in sodium and waters rich in calcium, we do not miss it!
