Detox Water

Make Detox Water to Support Your Cleanse

In addition to our Rejuv Detox Packs and Protocols, to further support detoxification, I recommend drinking our Rejuv Detox Water three times daily about 30 minutes before meals for 2-4 weeks to flush out toxins.

This simple recipe takes only minutes to prepare and includes key ingredients for natural detoxification, including lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, ginger, cinnamon and cayenne pepper.

  • Lemon juice helps reduce inflammation in your body and helps to regulate your pH levels. Drinking lemon water helps boost energy levels, detoxify your body, keep skin glowing and improve immune function. It is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, which may help support the liver’s detoxification processes. It also has a diuretic effect, which can help flush out toxins from the body through urine.
  • Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which may help improve liver function and support digestion. It may also help regulate blood sugar levels, benefiting overall health and detoxification.
  • Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body, which can contribute to detoxification. It also has digestive benefits that may help support the liver and other organs involved in detoxification.
  • Cinnamon has antioxidant properties that may help reduce oxidative stress in the body. It may also help regulate blood sugar levels to benefit overall health and detoxification.
  • Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, which may help boost metabolism and promote sweating. Sweating can be a way for the body to eliminate toxins through the skin.

Cinnamon, cayenne pepper and ginger contain healing compounds that help to reduce inflammation, support digestion and boost your metabolism, helping you stay strong and lean.

An optional ingredient for your detox drink is raw honey. I like to add manuka honey to many of my health drinks and detox smoothie recipes because it’s nutrient-dense, anti-microbial and fungal to help support a healthy immune system and the gut microbiome.

Here are some ways in which raw Manuka honey may benefit natural detoxification:

  • Antibacterial properties: Raw Manuka honey contains a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO), which has potent antibacterial properties. These antibacterial properties may help reduce the number of harmful bacteria in the gut, which can support overall digestive health and detoxification.
  • Antioxidant properties: Raw Manuka honey also contains antioxidants that can help protect against oxidative stress, which can contribute to cellular damage and ageing. These antioxidants may help support the liver’s detoxification processes.
  • Prebiotic properties: Raw Manuka honey contains prebiotics, which helps feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut. This can help improve gut health and support overall detoxification.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties: Raw Manuka honey has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation can contribute to various health issues, including impaired detoxification.

It’s important to note that while raw Manuka honey may have potential benefits for natural detoxification, it should be consumed in moderation as it is high in sugar.
