DIY detox drink

Are you thinking doing a detox but you are unsure what the benefits are? Detoxifying can help you:

  1. Remove toxin from the body
  2. Increase your energy level
  3. Lose weight
  4. Strengthen immune system function
  5. Improve your skin

detox drink

The best way to flush out toxins is by drinking more water. We like to start our day with a water infused with mint and lemon. It is refreshing, delicious and easy to prepare.

detox drink


1) Lemon x 1
Lemons are natural cleanser and lemon water makes a powerful detox drink. It cleanses your liver and stimulates your digestion.

2) Cucumber x 1 small
Cucumber has 95% water content, keeping the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxin.

3) Mint leaves x a handful
Mint adds refreshing flavor to your water. It helps in eliminating toxins from the body and improves digestion.

4) Water

  • Drink throughout the next day.
  • Soak lemon, cucumber and mint leaves overnight in your fridge to allow the flavours to meld.
