Delightful detox: 4 ingredients to add to your water that will make a big difference

 

Whether it's a long weekend, a family event or even just a Friday night by the telly, all of us fall off the healthy-living wagon at some stage or another.

 

But it's the getting back on that counts, and a good detox can often help get things rolling again.

 

Far from advocating extreme celebrity detox diets, we’re much more in favour of simple changes to help cleanse the body and kick-start our healthy regime again.

 

And one of the simplest changes we can make is that to our water.

 

By adding one of these ingrediants to your two litres, you’ll be doing your body the world of good.

 

Mint

 

 

As well as being incredibly refreshing, mint leaves in your water can help settle your stomach as well as ease digestion.

 

Ginger

 

 

A few thin slices of ginger can do wonders for your digestive system as well as easing unsettled tummies.

 

Cucumber

 

 

It’s been used in spas for years and there’s very good reason.

 

Cucumber water is excellent for rehydration as well as boasting anti-inflammatory properties for those days we’re feeling a little bloated.

 

Lemon

 

 

Ditch the bottled lemon waters which often contain tonnes of sugar and make your own instead.

 

Helping cleanse and alkalise your body, lemon water is as detoxifying as it is tasty.
