Detox drinks seem to be the easy multi-purpose fix that everyone is raving about. Whether it is to help with your withdrawal symptoms from addictions, remove toxins and promote weight loss or to boost a healthy lifestyle by supporting the body’s natural detoxification process, detox drinks seem to be the answer to all of these problems. However the downfall is that they tend to be quite expensive, inaccessible and most of the time it is not enjoyable because there is an ingredient in there that you cannot stand. To help you with this, we have come up with 8 of the best detox drinks that you can make at home that will not only serve its purpose but will also be delicious.

This drink was tested via a study done on rats on a high-fat diet and it revealed that pineapple juice induces the up regulation of fatty acid oxidation by molecular gene regulation. Therefore it has the potential to reduce weight gain and obesity. This drink requires 5 ingredients but is still quite easy to prepare. Chop up a pineapple and toss it in a blender and give it a spin. Once it is blended enough pour into a glass and add the juice of one lemon, a teaspoon of maple syrup, half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a pinch of salt. Stir these well and enjoy your homemade detox drink.

Orange and carrot juice

We are well aware how beneficial both carrot and orange are for our immune system. Carrots are full of fiber which increases satiety, decreasing our hunger which can help reduce our food intake. However make sure that you are not neglecting eating completely as that can lead to many other health complications. Oranges are a rich source for vitamin C which is inversely associated with body mass. When combined with moderate exercise this could help oxidize as much as 30% of fat. All you need to do to make this drink is to slice one carrot and peel one orange and add them to a blender. Add one tablespoon of honey and a few coriander leaves along with some water and give it a spin. Pour into a glass and add ice cubes before you try this delicious drink.

Cucumber and Mint drink

Mint is traditionally regarded as the best ingredient and in some cultures even the solution for soothing an upset stomach. Mint also improves the flow of bile through the stomach speeding the digestion process. Cucumber and lemon are also rich with antioxidants making this the perfectly cooling drink to beat the heat and detoxify both your body and mind. To prepare this drink, peel and chop a cucumber and add it to a blender. Throw in 8-10 mint leaves and 1 cup of water and give it a spin. Strain and discard the pulp of the juice. Afterwards add 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and water if needed. Once you pour the beverage into glasses feel free to put some ice cubes and garnish it with lemon rings and mint leaves.

Green detox drink

No matter how often we are told and how much our rational mind recognizes that greens are good for our health our natural response is dislike and hesitancy to consume it. However putting them in a blender and drinking it definitely seems like a more appealing option. This is how you can reap the benefits of vegetables and detox your body in the form of a drink. Slice up 3 carrots and add it to the blender. Throw in 3 kale leaves, 2 celery talks and half a bunch of spinach. Slice up one turnip, 2 beets and half a cabbage and throw it in to the blender as well. Add half a bunch of parsley, half an onion and two cloves of garlic and mix all the mentioned ingredients with water and blend well. Even though this may not be your go-to drink we assure you that it is one of the ultimate detox drinks.
