Today I’m sharing my detox drink. There are days when I go careless and eat lots of junkies, this is where my detox infusion comes to my rescue. This infusion works so quickly (you will feel your belly bloats a lot after drinking it – it is actually the detoxifying process). Basically, I’ve combined all ingredients that will ensure a deep cleanse and elimination of all toxins in the body. I normally have it once or twice a week (preferably at night).

P.s this helps to get clearer skin.

What I used for the detox drink and their benefits:

1. Thyme – protect the body against bacterial and yeast infections, clear the throat and is good for the skin
2. Mint – reduces inflammation, strengthen the immune system and cures your bad breath
3. Cloves – improves digestion, reduces inflammation, soothes earache and toothache
4. Linseeds/ flax – High in fiber, energy booster, good source of iron, calcium, magnesium etc etc
5. Barley seeds (L’orge) – Good for those suffering from Asthma, Hypertension or diabetes, great source of fiber
6. Cardamom – Detoxifying properties, protects against cold and flu, help fights depression
7. Methi seeds (Fenugreek) – good for the digestive system, helps cure inflammation, control sugar level
8. Aniseed – improves digestion, good for those suffering from menstrual disorders, good for the eyes and pancreas

Why your body needs a detox drink?

Our body is programmed to clean its wastes by itself. However when you eat meat, processed food and sugar packed food, this slows the cleansing process. Your body has to work harder to enable the detoxification. Thus build up of food in the intestines turns into toxins and can lead to digestive problems, weight gain, cardiovascular disease and other complications. This is why you need a detox drink once in a while to ease the process and supply the body with antioxidants, fibers and nutrients it needs.
