Green Tea Lemon Mint Detox Water for Cleansing
Mint Benefits – According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, peppermint relaxes your stomach muscles and increases bile flow, improving your digestion of fats. It promotes relaxation throughout the gastrointestinal tract, helping flatulence pass more easily. Mint is a stimulant, but it also stimulates the digestive enzymes that absorb nutrients from food and consume fat and turns it into usable energy.
Lemon – 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. “The polyphenols in lemon may aid in reducing appetite,” registered dietician Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, CDE, author of Belly Fat Diet For Dummies. Rodent studies have shown that the polyphenols in lemon do help to prevent weight gain. Plus, she adds, “when you drink a glass of water, especially before a meal, this helps to fill your stomach, offsetting the amount of food needed to feel satisfied.”
Green Tea – “It’s all about the catechin content,” says Beth Reardon, RD, a Boston nutritionist. Catechins are antioxidants that fight and may even prevent cell damage. Green tea is not processed much before it’s poured in your cup, so it’s rich in catechins. The substances in green tea increase levels of hormones that tell fat cells to break down fat. This releases fat into the bloodstream and makes it available as energy. While green tea is a healthy beverage on its own, the antioxidants get partially degraded in the body, so you lose some of those benefits when the tea is weakened in this process. Adding lemon juice to green tea helps your body pull out up to six times more antioxidants from the green tea – supercharging its belly-melting power.
