Make These 4 Detox Waters This Summer To Help Cleanse The Liver and Kidneys

Detox water is all the rage right now – especially when you can easily make them at home yourself. Why bother buying the cheap “vitamin waters” you see in store? They contain the unknown mystery ingredient labelled “natural flavor,” which could be a variety of things. Homemade detox waters taste better, anyway, and are much easier on the wallet!

Making your own detox water is quick and easy, and they are packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals that help cleanse out the liver and ease stress on the kidneys. These waters will also help alkalize the body, flush out toxins, improve skin quality and strengthen the immune system.

Infusing your water with fruit, cucumbers and herbs, is also a great way to encourage you to drink more water, which will in turn improve your health and help hydrate the cells of your body.

Always make sure your ingredients are organic and pesticide-free! Talk to your local farmers and ask them if they spray. The less toxins in your body, means the less work your liver and kidneys have to do to filter them out. When we consume too many toxins, our liver and kidneys become overwhelmed and this can manifest as skin issues, headaches, blood disorders and more.
