6 Things You Can Add To Your Water For Better Digestion





Staying hydrated is key for good digestion. It promotes regular bowel movements and helps flush harmful toxins out of the body.  While this can be accomplished by drinking regular tap or bottled water, did you know that by adding a few ingredients to your H2O you can transform drinking water into detox water and up the benefits?




Some detox water recipes include several ingredients, while others only include one. Each ingredient adds its own health benefit ranging from weight loss to boosting energy levels, detoxing the liver, detoxing the kidneys, improving digestion, etc. 






Below are 6 detox water ingredients to help improve  your digestive health.  You can simply add one of the following ingredients to your ice water and drink up, or you can add several ingredients to your detox water:


Lemon or Lime




High in Vitamin C, lemon or lime water helps create digestive enzymes. Either squeeze the lemon or lime into your water or add thin slices into your water (as shown in the photo)


Apple Cider Vinegar




Adding 2-3 teaspoons of vinegar to your water can remove toxins from the body, improve digestion and boost your metabolism. It can also help balance pH levels in the body.


Fresh Mint Leaves




Mint leaves can improve bile flow and functions of the salivary glands. They also produce digestive enzymes which help absorb vitamins and nutrients in food. Mint leaves can also help relieve an upset stomach.


Cucumber




Cucumbers are high in fiber and water, which aids in digestion and healthy bowel movements. Add half of a thinly sliced cucumber to your glass of water.


Cinnamon




Add one stick of cinnamon ti your water to improve digestion. It can help relieve IBS by killing bacteria and healing infections in the GI tract.


Ginger Root




Known for relieving cramps, gas, bloating and indigestion. Cut fresh ginger into small pieces, add to water and let soak overnight. This will allow the water to absorb the nutrients.
