Water for Wellness: How to Make Detox Water

Let's talk about detox water, a long-lasting trend in health and wellness.

With promised benefits of weight loss, a boost to your immune system, better digestion and an increase in energy levels, people are turning their H2O into the popular detox water. 

Purified water by itself helps to flush out toxins and boost energy levels. With a few added fruits and vegetables, detox water can supercharge those benefits. 

However, contrary to popular belief, "detox water" isn't enough to detoxify your body of ALL toxins. It simply aids your immune system with its nutrients and encourages you to drink more water with its great taste. 

All in all, it's a simple recipe with great benefits. So, why not give it a try? It takes about five minutes.
