What is the difference between washing your hand and sanitizing hand? Washing removes all the dust particles, chemicals and microbes where as sanitizing denotes destroying the bacteria and viruses. The word washing sounds more close to the word detoxification. Washing out all the toxic elements (dust particles, chemicals, microbes) from the body channels, gives you a light feeling. This is what detoxification does to the body.
WHAT IS DETOX WATER?
Detox water is nothing but flavored water that flushes the toxins and enhances health. What is a need to add flavor or infuse it with fruits, herbs and vegetables? We never crave for plain water but for soda drinks and other aerated beverages. Then why not infuse the plain filtered water with some natural flavors to make it more enjoyable and easier to drink. It will also contribute in adding more nutrients and vitamins to the body and keep you energetic for the day.
BEST INGREDIENTS FOR DETOX WATER
The ingredients added to the water are mainly for adding flavor to make the drink tasty and enjoyable to consume. Thus choose the combination that can make you crave to have the frequent gulp of this drink.
Some of the most common water detox combinations are-
-Cucumber & Mint detox water
-Ginger & Lemon detox water
-Basil & Watermelon detox water
-Orange & Lemon detox water
-Apple & Cinnamon detox water
THE INVERSE PROPORTION OF DETOX & OBESITY
We exist in a world where we have no scope of escape from polluted air and toxic foods. Liver ‘the largest organ’ in our body is responsible for removing the toxins by using oxygen and enzymes to make it more water soluble and supports the other organs to function properly, kidney eliminates the toxins out of the body. Other than these two organs, the lungs, skin and gastrointestinal tract also contribute to detoxification.
The high toxins in the body if not eliminated can damage the liver cells and liver being an important organ for the process of digestion can lead to poor metabolism and hence weight gain. Detox water enhances the metabolism and thus initiates the weight loss in a body. Do not make a mistake of taking detox water as a magic wand after you eat a king sized burger. The food you consume plays a critical role. By now we have understood the link of detoxification and body weight.
WHAT DETOX WATER ACTUALLY DOES TO THE BODY
Detox water is very much popular for weight loss and has been in use for a very long period of time. It’s good taste and its ability to reduce weight makes it one of the best health drinks. It has a low calorific value and it fills your stomach preventing you from overeating. According to the studies detox water is said to enhance the metabolism and is a great drink to reduce fat.
There is a barter system between the body and water. The latter takes toxins and provides nutrients to the body. When you stand under a shower all the dirt and dust washes away. Imagine the same thing happening while you keep taking the gulp of water throughout the day. A bottle of water infused with herbs, fruits or vegetables will not only wash your body from inside but provides vitamins and minerals as well.
“Cure the constipation to reduce weight”
Detox water is actually a medicine for constipation. The movement of solid waste of the body through the colon, to the rectum and out of the anus is possible only when the passage is lubricated. Hence without water this solid content gets dried, stucked and thus a person is constipated resulting in development of toxins in the body which ultimately leads to poor metabolism and thus obesity. Detox water softens the solid excreta, lubricates the passage and cleans the bowels.
“Eliminate the toxins and extra body fluid and see the visible weight loss”
Drinking detox water has a direct effect on the kidney system as its function depends directly on this organ.It removes the toxins from the blood, water soluble toxins from the liver and thus indirectly enhances the metabolism and improves digestion.
