Detoxing the body is important to flush out toxins from the body and keep you healthy. Detox drinks are the best way to accelerate this process and some of the best detox drinks are cumin, fennel and coriander water. These detox drinks balance the overall intestinal pH preventing it from invading organisms and unwanted ingredients from the food by flushing it out at the right time along with the toxins. Below are the recipes for each along with ways to use them to stay toxin-free:
Recipe: Add a teaspoon of cumin seeds to a glass of water and bring it to a boil. Once the water turns brown, turn off the gas and cover the vessel. Allow the decoction to cool down to room temperature. If you want the tea to be a little mild (while consuming), you can add some cumin seeds to a glass of boiling hot water and cover it. Let it steep and then decant the water.
Benefits: Cumin seeds improve digestion and relieve many common digestive ailments, including flatulence (gas), bloating, diarrhea, nausea and indigestion. Cumin is believed to aid digestion by stimulating the production of pancreatic enzymes. Cumin also helps flush out toxins along with improving metabolism.
Ways to use: Cumin water can be consumed warm first thing in the morning or it can be added in green tea. Also, add some cumin water in your water bottle and sip it throughout the day. More: Cumin water benefits for health and beauty >>
