Veggy Malta looks at Detox water drinks you can easily make at home that can help your body. In most cases you can easily create a number of detox drinks from what you already have available at home.

On a daily basis our bodies are exposed to environmental pollutants, pesticides, stress and anxiety, foul air, preservatives and so many more negative influencers. We are breathing, eating, drinking and making contact with these toxins constantly. Detox drinks are known to help the body to reduce inflammation, boost energy, support digestion, cleanse the liver and promote skin health. [1] There is nothing special about detox drinks. They are drinks with ingredients that are known to have detoxification properties. To maximise their effect it is not advisable to add sugar to any detox drink.

Whilst detox drinks are not a magic wand they can have a positive effect on your health. They are one tool in your personal health tool kit. Detox drinks can help reduce fatigue, improve digestion, reduce occasional constipation, boost your immunity system, flush out toxins, promote weight loss, improve overall health and nourish your body.
