When it comes to cleansing, the water, vitamin C and antioxidants in lemons are a triple threat. Lemons are about 90% water by weight, which makes them perfect for staying hydrated— a cleansing bonus, since your liver needs water to flush away toxins.
Detox first thing in the morning with a ginger lemon tea. Unlike dried lemon teas, which can lose their antioxidant power during storage, steeping your hot water in fresh lemon ensures you’ll get the most cleansing benefits. A few slices of ginger add zip to your drink – perfect for a pick-me-up without the caffeine – boost your metabolism with a hint of heat and add antioxidants.
Feel free to mix up a few cups of tea to enjoy, hot or cold, throughout the day. Sip the tea, and drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and help with detoxification.
