It may be cooling up around the country but the heat is on here in West Palm Beach, FL. We had some major SundayFunday over the weekend watching football at our local pub and boy oh boy was I feeling out of it on Monday morning! I turn to my favorite detox drink to beat my bloating belly and cleanse my liver and boost my energy level.
Beneficial Ingredients to Banish the Bloat
- lemons -are a great source of Vitamin C and Potassium. This is a virtually fat-free food which punches a massive amount of flavor. Lemon aids in liver detox and alkalizes the body. Lemon juice is also a mild diuretic, so adding it to your water is going to help flush out those toxins.
- Mint Benefits – It stimulates the digestive enzymes that absorb nutrients from food and consume fat and turns it into usable energy. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, mint relaxes your stomach muscles and increases bile flow, improving your digestion of fats.
- Grapefruits – A large amount of Vitamin C actually turns fat into fuel. Grapefruit has been labeled lately as the perfect fruit. Grapefruits are high in fiber and low in calories, and they contain bioflavonoids that protect against cancer. Grapefruits also increase the body’s metabolic rate, and actually makes you feel full!. It even fights fatigue! Start your day off with half a grapefruit to jump-start your day!
