This flat-belly, as well as inflammation and toxin-fighting drink, is one of our favorites, especially after we have not gotten a good night’s rest and feel stressed or rundown. While this twin sister team of registered dietitians, as well as personal trainers originally started making elixirs like this when they created their Cucumber Blueberry Water Flush, their Lemon Ginger Detox drink, and their Vitamin C Infused “Detox” Water for you and our clients that were requesting more drinks like this, after experiencing the positive benefits, these hot numbers have become their besties too.
If you are one of those that have tried them, you probably know it is no secret that these beverages help in preventing hunger and overeating, squash cravings, as well as beat and bloat and flood the body with nutrients which help combat the damage that is caused by a poor diet, alcohol, daily stress and from everyday living. They have also become so important in the success of the clients that were also included as an important part in the 21-Day Body RebootTM, a life-alerting program which helps people to lose at least 10 pounds or more while going wild on the weekend.
They immediately help you to get your mind, as well as your body back on the healthy track. They are called ToxTM drinks, as they work especially well in helping the body in its’ natural process of detoxification as you eat, wholesome, “clean” food. Even though your body is equipped to detox, as well as cleanse itself naturally, certain health-promoting foods and drinks, such as the one we will present you today, can be impressive when it comes to assisting in its process.
