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

MY LATEST VIDEOS
        • 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. Love it with all mixed together

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

  3. 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! :)

  4. 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

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

  6. Ever since I tried derox water. It did not only help me lose my weight but it also made me stop drinking carbonated drinks and plain water.

  7. Very nice refreshing and wonderful for entire family

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

  9. 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.

  10. Do you peel the fruit and vegetables?

  11. This sound amazing

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

    thanks for sharing it

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

  13. 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..

  14. 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.

  15. 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?
