Flush toxins out of your body every day with these 3 morning detox brews. This post from POPSUGAR Fitness Australia shares DIY recipes for 2-ingredient powerful potions!
A detox doesn’t have to be elaborately coordinated or just something you do after an indulgent weekend. If you’re looking for simple ways to flush toxins out of your body and reenergise every day, there’s no easier way than with these two-ingredient brews you can sip every morning for a healthy start. With a healthy squeeze of detoxifying lemon juice as the main ingredient, all you need to make these three powerful potions is a mug of hot water and a second ingredient of your choice — either fiery ginger, tangy pomegranate, or fresh mint.
Lemon and Mint
Not only is mint a natural antimicrobial agent that helps your oral hygiene, regular mint and peppermint variations both help to curb cravings and aid in digestion, therefore supporting your weight loss.
For this brew, pour boiling water over some loose mint leaves and add the juice of half a lemon. For a more decadent option, try this dairy-free mint chocolate chip smoothie.
Lemon and Pomegranate
Pomegranates aren’t just tasty and easy on the eyes; they also pack a powerful nutritional punch. Aside from the fact that the seeds from one pomegranate account for almost 40 percent of your RDA of vitamin C and 45 percent of your daily fibre intake, it also has three times the antioxidant powers of green tea and red wine. By adding pomegranate to your daily brew, you’ll benefit from its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and digestion-aiding properties.
Place a small handful of pomegranate seeds into the bottom of a mug and gently smash them with a spoon, add boiling water, and finish off with the juice of half a lemon.
Lemon and Ginger Root
Ginger is a superfood that has an endless list of health benefits, which include anti-inflammation, antinausea, and immune-boosting. The gingerol in ginger is also a bioactive that has antioxidant and flu-fighting properties.
To make this brew, simply chop or grate an inch of ginger root into a mug, add boiling water, and finish by squeezing in the juice of half a lemon.
