Lime and cucumber is a classic combination of ingredients for your infused detox water, with excellent detoxifying and hydrating properties. Both these foods contain high levels of antioxidants, helping your liver metabolize toxins to be whisked from the body. Citrus fruits are exceptional sources of vitamin C, while cucumber enhances the nutritional profile of this water with vitamin K. Cucumber also contains unique antioxidants called cucurbitacins, with exceptional anti-cancer properties. Adjust these aromatic herbs to your preferences, adding mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary or thyme as you like.
