Drinking Detox Water For Flat Belly is becoming popular and more and more people are using it as it is a simple yet effective way of shedding flatulence.

It is a sweet n simple one-stop solution for many problems like weight loss, building immunity, detoxification, glowing skin and many more.

But what exactly is Detox Water? Is Detox water and Flat Tummy Water the same? Does Detox water really result in a flat tummy? 

How to make Detox Water


Flat tummy water

Though the answer to the above questions cannot be given in a single line or word but one word which suits the above questions is definitely Healthy Water.

We all know that Water is nectar... We need to drink a minimum of 8 to 10 glasses of water every day for many reasons. But at times it becomes difficult to drink plain water. Here's when this flavoured or detox or flat tummy water is really helpful.

Detox water apart from loaded with nutrients is actually very good in taste and hence I love calling it flavoured water also.

People like me, drink this water mainly for flushing out toxins and even more for its refreshing flavour. 

It cleanses your body and burns fat, thus helping you to lose weight. But how?

This detox water is mildly sweetened by various ingredients added to it.  This sweetness helps you increase your daily intake of water thus satisfying your sugar cravings.  It makes you feel full longer, thereby helping you to lose weight. The ingredients give you an extra dose of vitamins, naturally, and a nice boost to your metabolism.


Memory Lane

A few months back when I visited my sister in law, Mamta Nanda's place, then instead of plain water, she served us this flavoured water. It was looking awesome in the pitcher and when we tasted it it was even more awesome.

Very mildly flavoured. The taste of herbs was so subtle yet enticing. All of us loved that water so much so that we decided to have the same water only once back home. Believe me, once you start having this water you will get addicted to it. You will not like plain water.

She had put cucumber, lemon and mint in it. All known for their antioxidant properties. She had many reasons to have that water, like detoxification, flavour, keeps the body hydrated, losing weight, glowing skin.

Actually, you can put as many ingredients as you like depending upon availability and your preferences.


  Detox Water Ingredients

Each ingredient has its own benefits and helps the body in some or the other form.

  • Lemons help to kick-start digestion while flushing out toxins. Vitamin C will also brighten up your skin and boosts up your immune system as well... Also, they are rich in pectin fibre which suppresses food cravings.
  • Cucumbers are a perfect weight-loss food. They are low in calories, act as a diuretic, high in dietary fibre and keeps the body alkaline, that is, makes it acid-free. All this, in turn, cleanses the skin and keeps it glowing.
  • Mint is great for aiding in the digestion. It flushes toxins from your kidneys, liver and colon. It not only suppresses appetite but also gives a refreshing flavour.
  • Ginger is good for the throat and also gives a feeling of fullness thus reducing the chances of overeating.
  • Basil fights free radicals and is an excellent source of magnesium so it is really good for your heart.

You can add all these or any of these.

There is no recipe as such, but yes, just sharing a little guide for the beginners as to how to make this detox water.
