44 Best Detox Water Recipes For Healthy Living And Weight Loss

A lot of people in society today have the goal of losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. For a majority of people, this isn't an easy thing that can be done with a snap of the finger, or even overnight, for that matter. In addition to regular diet and exercise, some are turning to detox water to give them that extra weight loss boost. But does it really work?

The Basics of Detox Water

Before we can go further in discussing detox water recipes, it is important to understand what exactly detox water is and the benefits of drinking detox water, if any. The website Lose Weight by Eating offers some insight:

Any water that is infused with fruit (or other things) that can help clear toxins or bad things out of your system for the betterment of your health is considered detox water.

There are some recipes that can help your bodies with certain things. For example, they can help with your metabolism to eliminate hunger, cleanse your body of toxins, and also help with weight loss.

In drinking this water, you are infusing your body with a number of nutrients and vitamins through the ingredients that you soak in the water. This is making you healthier and increasing your energy levels, and the best part is that it tastes better than just normal water.

How Do You Make Detox Water?

Making detox water is very simple and only takes minutes to prepare. It's great for a hot summer day, to cool down after an intense workout, or even on the go when you travel.

All you have to do is:

  • Place all ingredients in a fruit infuser pitcher or fruit infuser water bottle
  • Fill 1/2 of the pitcher with ice and then fill with water all the way to the top
  • Then for around an hour, put it in your refrigerator and it will be ready to serve
  • It can be refilled two or three times before flavor is lost

You can make as much or as little detox water as you would like. Also, the following recipes can be modified. You can use as little or as many ingredients as possible. Obviously, the more ingredients you use and the longer you steep them, the stronger the flavor of the water will be.
