This exquisitely colored and delicately flavored detox water combines the nourishing properties of cucumber with two exceptional items: basil and citrus. Cucumber hides a treasure of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. It contains specific nutrients such as lignans, triterpenes, and flavonoids, with extensive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, helping our cells to fight against free radical damage and oxidative stress. Tangerine peel flavors this infused water with the tangy fragrance of its calming essential oil, rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene. Basil is a source of vitamin A and potassium, while it refreshes and invigorates your mind.
