Detox drinks bring various benefits to our body and our organism, such as keeping us in our weight or losing the extra weight that bothers us. In addition, it helps us to improve digestion thanks to the hydration that this type of beverages offer us. Detox drinks facilitate the passage of food through the intestinal tract and prevent constipation.
Among other things, detox drinks boost our immune function because after a good infusion it will contain essential amounts of vitamins C, A and B and minerals to keep our immune system robust and prevent infections.
Also, detox drinks can play a positive role in our brain functions thanks to the evacuation of toxins that we store in our stomach, our kidneys and our liver.
Finally, your skin will also thank you. Another benefit of detox drinks is that it significantly lightens dull and damaged dermal tissues, banishing dark spots, blackheads and acne scars. In addition, detox drinks greatly hydrate the body, which helps to achieve a fresh and glowing complexion without uneven skin tone and blemishes.
Here are several detox drink recipes that your body will thank you for
