3 Delicious Detox Drinks You Must Try Today
Do you feel exhausted and worn out easily? Wake up tired even after eight hours of sleep? Junk food, hectic lifestyle and lack of exercise can run down your system and induce lethargy. To counter this, detox drinks come to your rescue and replenish your system, flushing out the gunk causing the sluggishness. There are many benefits of drinking these energy-boosting potions. Regular consumption results in clearer skin, sound sleep, better digestion and improved blood circulation. Served warm in the form of teas or cold as juices and smoothies, the ingredients are most beneficial when they come straight from your kitchen cabinet. Detox drinks can be safely consumed at any time. You can even end your day with a relaxing warm cuppa of decaf goodness. Say goodbye to insomnia and snooze away into your beauty sleep and wake up feeling super fresh.
So kick-start a healthy regimen by replacing sodas, coffees and sugar-loaded juice packs with these yummy detox beverages.
The Herbal Tea – An immune system booster. Ginger, lime and holy basil are infused in water and served warm with a dash of honey. Ditch your chai and switch over to herbal teas for their taste and benefits. L’Occitane Spa welcomes all their guests with this drink as it instantly calms their mind and gets them into the much needed ‘me-time’ mode.
Pomegranate, Pineapple and Lemon smoothie – A metabolism-boosting pick-me up. Pomegranates contain more antioxidants than the popular green tea. When combined with sweet pineapples, known for preventing free radical damage, it results into a delicious smoothie. Balance this sweetened blend with a dash of lemon juice, giving the smoothie a perfect tang plus a boost to your metabolism.
Beet and Carrot drink – A blood-purifying potion. Beetroots have been known for their blood purifying properties. Carrots add in anti-ageing and cancer-preventing characteristics, along with their natural sweet taste. The vibrant colours of both add a fresh flavour to your detox routine. Ideally, do not peel the carrots and beets before juicing. Strain and consume right after making it. You can also pour in some green tea for an extra dose of antioxidants while blending.
