Are Detox drinks beneficial?
A few years back, people used to tell me, you don’t need to go for endurance, and high-intensity training activities. Something similar happened a few months back, when a friend said, you don’t need detox drinks. That’s a very general perception around. You only need to exercise and go for detox drinks, to lose that puppy fat?
Absolutely no! Even Ectomorphs (skinny people) and Mesomorphs (more muscle than fat, medium frame people) need the right set of training, just like Endomorphs (people with high body fat). Even they need to adopt a healthy lifestyle for their own healthy body and mind. While exercise triggers positivity and a sense of happiness (due to the secretion of endorphins), detox drinks help work as a metabolic booster to me. Varied detox drinks are powerhouses, as they are,
- Rich in minerals, vitamins, fibers
- Low in calories and improves digestion
- They act as early morning metabolic boosters
- Provide extra hydration and nourishment
- Aids in weight loss*
What are detox drinks?
Detox water is the water that has been infused with varied fruits and vegetables, and at times herbs too. In other ways, you can also form detox juices, not by infusing, but simply mixing refreshing fruits and vegetables and sipping it.
While the caffeinated drinks and carbonated beverages, along with other processed foods affects our liver, detox drinks provide the digestive juices and stimulate urination. This, in turn, helps our body to purge the toxins and even keeps our body well hydrated. Hence, a very general term is used that detox drinks flush out all the toxins from our system. Why the jury is already out there, debating on trying to prove detoxification and weight loss, it is proven that detox water and juices are rich in vitamins, minerals and keep your body well-nourished and hydrated.
Does Detox Water help in weight loss?
The word “Detox water” and “Detox Juices” are over-hyped honestly. If you’re on your weight loss journey then relying simply on detox water and detox juices won’t help.
You can’t gobble up that cheesy burst pizza with a glass of detox water. It isn’t magical.
In simple words, hydration plus a very vital role in the functioning of our systems and this is what infused water and detox juices do, with additional nutrition. *So, detox drinks can aid you in your weightless journey, but then you need to ensure a healthy lifestyle.
“Daily physical workout/training as per your body type, brisk walking/running, adopting for a healthy diet, de-stressing your life and ensuring a quality sleep along with detox drinks will help you achieve that goal, healthily.”
There are no shortcuts, like drinking a glass of detox juice/slimming tea’s a day, to lose that stubborn fat!
Should I add Detox drinks in my daily routine?
Yes, 100% you should add detox drinks in your daily routine, irrespective of your body type. Though don’t make them as a replacement for your meals. Well, I start my day, with a glass of detox drink (detox juice) empty stomach. Infused water drinks, like Cucumber-Lemon-Mint water, Apple-Cinnamon water, lemon water, can be taken even between the meals, sipping through the day. I prefer, one glass of detox juice (with the pulp) every morning for that dose of vitamins, minerals, and fibers essential for a new day.
This month, all my posts under Blogchatter’s #MyFriendAlexa campaign will be around a healthy body and mind, an inevitable detox that we need to do, for ourselves.
