I’ve been making flavored water on a daily basis for a very long time (lots of yummy water ideas here)!  I love the subtle taste of the fruits in it and it definitely helps me drink more water!  I hadn’t given a ton of thought to the properties of the ingredients.  Recently I saw delicious Detox water by Cassey over at Blogilates (she has a couple of other great drinks over there to check out!)  I realized that the ingredients in the flavored waters I’d already been making not only taste wonderful but depending on your additions, they also contain properties that are extremely beneficial to your body!

This Slimming Detox Water is filled with so many great ingredients!  And even more, it tastes great!  I make this water in a large container and sip on it all day long!

Slimming Detox Water Benefits

        • Water: The most important ingredient is water!  We all know that water is good for us and we also have heard it’s great for weight loss!  Keeping hydrated boosts metabolism, aids in digestion, helps fill you up.  (Not to mention drinking water is great for skin too).
        • Lime & Lemon: These citrus juices help with digestion and relieve bloating!  (They have qualities similar to our own digestive enzymes).
        • Ginger: Ginger naturally calms the belly!  The benefits of ginger are endless!  It has anti-inflammatory  properties, can help with fat burning and even boosts your immune system!
        • Oranges: Of course oranges contain Vitamin C but that’s not all, the carotenoids and flavonoids in oranges help eliminate toxins and stimulate the immune system.
        • Mint:  Mint stimulates the digestive enzymes, soothes the belly and aids in digestion (and adds a great flavor!)
        • Cucumber:  Cucumbers contain lots of vitamin A (antioxidants), C and the B vitamins.  They are known for flushing out toxins!  In addition, the electrolytes in cucumbers can reduce water retention!

 Of course water is not a magic weight loss pill, but drinking more water has been proven to be effective in weight loss.  So why not add in some wonderful ingredients that not only taste great but have added benefits!

  1. It is very beneficial to drink detox water than normal water. It helps for weight loss. Thanks for sharing this information.

  2. Your slimming detox water sounds so refreshing delicious. Drinking infused water is really the best strategy, if weight loss is your goal and you think plain water tastes too bland. Of course it’s never as sweet as soda (if you think you can’t live without it) but the ingredient composition is so flavorful that after a while the taste buds get used to it and love it. Just don’t give up too early. Drinking plenty of (infused) water instead of soda is a “keystone habit” – one of the most important habits with weight loss and a crucial catalyst for other healthy habits.

  3. Does it really helps to get down your weight? I am desterate to loose weight

  4. Can you drink the whole mixture daily? And how wld u  make it if you did it over night for the next day? 

  5. Has a nice and refreshing Taste . Just love it  

  6. I made the swimming water is very good and refreshing and I think I’ll continue drinking it. Thank you.

  7. This is a great detox water

  8. I made this detox water and it is fantastic!! The taste is great and my belly bloat is gone and I feel wonderful, great detox .

  9. Thanks for this shared knowlegde..but how long can each preparation last and if it can last more than a day,can i keep refilling with water?

    • I usually make it in the morning and sip on it throughout the day. Before I head to bed I remove any of the flavorings and refrigerate the water. It should last a few days like that but I always drink it before then! :)

  10. Does it have to be consumed chilled? Because keeping it in the refrigerator overnight and having it in the morning makes it really chilled and difficult to drink.

    • I leave it out during the day while I’m drinking it. Since it contains cut fruit and vegetables, I would recommend refrigeration.

  11. I have started using it a couple of years ago and yes it is very helpful . Now I can’t imagine my day without detox. Very helpful article..

  12. What about the remaining vegetables and fruits?what we will do with them?

  13. This sound amazing

    how much do you drink at a time and how often?

  14. Do you peel the fruit and vegetables?

  15. Sorry, but this water is horrible & bitter, since you did not say to peel the fruit! Let it sit overnight and instead, I ate the fruit.

  16. I am going to try this water I hate water Thank You

  17. Very nice refreshing and wonderful for entire family

  19. Its Crazy how people forget to drink water.Thanks for the tip!

  20. This sounds great … I am brand new to this idea … how much do you drink at a time and how often … is it a glass a day for a week or the whole jug per day … let me know … thanks

  21. I can’t wait to try this! How long does it stay good for? Or is it like a one use thing?

    • I usually make it in the morning and sip on it throughout the day. Before I head to bed I remove any of the flavorings and refrigerate the water. It should last a few days like that but I always drink it before then! :)

  22. I have been making these infused waters for months now and I can’t imagine drinking plain water ever again!
