Life in the fast lane, stress and summer over-indulgences contribute to the dynamic urban lifestyle, but they can also have disastrous consequences on health.
Are you a busy person on the go? If so, you can rely on the power of detox drinks to decrease the burden and to make yourself feel much more energized.
Including detox drinks in your lifestyle is a relatively simple task that doesn’t require too much time or effort. This is why I take a few minutes in the morning to make myself enough detox tea to take around during the day and sip on now and then.
So many ingredients like lemon and ginger can be used to help the body with detoxification. Getting rid of toxins in an efficient manner is essential for being healthier.
Did I mention the fact that detox drinks will also have a positive impact on your appearance?
The tea helps the kidneys flush out toxins more efficiently. It also enhances the functioning of the digestive tract, helping for the absorption of vital nutrients and the elimination of waste.
The detoxification tea is a delicious option that everybody can enjoy. Here is why you should be giving the possibility a try.
Benefits of the Ingredients
Ginger and lemon are two powerful foods for complete detox. You can add turmeric to the concoction because its effect on vital organs is amazing.
Ginger is great for improving digestion. Turmeric has powerful liver cleansing qualities. When it comes to detoxification, the liver is one of the most important organs. Helping it get rid of waste is going to contribute to a sense of wellbeing.
So many people believe that detox regimens and procedures have to be costly and complicated. The truth is that the benefits can be obtained through the purchase of a few basic supermarket ingredients.
Adding a bit of honey and lemon to the tea ingredients will give you some more antioxidants, vitamins and anti-viral agents. The tea is safe for everyday consumption, and once you get used to sipping on the brew, you will find it almost impossible to go a day without it.
It’s a bright concoction with decisive notes of spice and heat. There’s ginger for digestion, turmeric to cleanse the liver, cayenne to warm the body and amp up metabolism, and cinnamon to serve as an anti-inflammatory.
More than a straight-up recipe, this is a foundation and guideline to building a morning detox that best suits your taste and needs. The measurements are approximate and forgiving (just make sure not to overdo it with the cayenne and turmeric). Like ginger? Add more. Don’t want honey? Skip it.
- 6-inch piece of fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 2 cinnamon sticks or powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- spoonful of raw honey
- squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- Peel ginger and slice thinly on the diagonal. Use the side of the knife to smash the ginger (exposing more surface area).
- Add ginger slices to a saucepan with 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add the cinnamon sticks, turmeric, and cayenne. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
- Strain into a mug.
- Stir in a spoonful of honey and squeeze of lemon.
You’ll still have plenty in the pot after that first cup. I like to keep the brew going all day, adding more water or spices with each serving. Enjoy!
