When used in the context of your diet, the words “cleanse” and “detox” are quite controversial. This is mostly because some commercial cleanses and detox products on the market are full of sugar and empty calories, thus essentially causing more harm than good. Similarly, your liver and kidneys are natural detoxifiers, so drinking and eating foods that claim to do the work of your body’s internal organs seems redundant and a waste of time and money.
We present the detox water or infused water which will transform the way you look at cleansing forever. Instead of buying those expensive sugary drinks start your day with a refreshing veggie or fruit infused water. This will jumpstart your metabolism, support your liver function and give you all the nutrients your body needs, all in a jug of delight. Also, you can combine different ingredients that offer different health benefits and aside from burning fat and cleansing your body from toxins, take advantage of many other benefits.
