Can you really detox with water?

Detox water recipeDetoxing using water… sound questionable? We thought so too. Sure water cleanses your body inside and out, but can it really be used to remove toxins?

Given that we are curious type, the Heroic Health team had to find out.

We learned that not only is there a theory out there that water will detoxify your body, but there is an actual detox method devoted entirely to it! Their theory is that drinking water helps cleanse your body, flushing out potential harmful toxins through your urinary tract. Some say that the water detox-cleanse is one of the best way to detox your body without affecting your diet (side note: the Heroic Health team does NOT endorse the idea that you can live on only water and not eat food. YOUR BODY NEEDS FOOD AS WELL!).

So after the discovery that the water detox diet is really a bit extreme for us, we decided to come up with our own method.

There are steps to this method, so we are going to take it slow. Day one, that being today, is about starting to flush the toxins out of your body. While there are many ways to do this, our favourite includes this drink. This Detox Water is just the right combination of sweet, minty and fresh. Make it in a big juice pitcher and enjoy it throughout the week.
