I love citrus waters! They are refreshing, they have so many benefits, and they are just really pretty to look at. For those who don't enjoy the refreshing, plain taste of water, adding fruit and citrus to your water will spruce it up a bit. It is like a water make over! I have picked out some of my favorite citrus fruits, and my favorite berries for the detox waters; each water having their own, unique benefits.
Since there is lemon in each of these detox waters, I thought that I would share a few benefits that come from drinking lemon water.

Raspberries help normalize blood sugar, increase red blood cells, anti-cancer, boosts your immune system, helps you maintain a healthy heart. This is such a great detox water!

All of these waters have similar health benefits, and they are all amazing! I find it beautiful that the earth provides everything we need to maintain a healthy life. A cup, or jar of detox water everyday can help aid you in so many ways! My goal is to stay off as many medications as I age. I see people around me take so many medications for different ailments, or to prevent ailments, and it seems like a big bother. While the medications do help them (at least, I hope they help them), I would rather prolong a medication-less life for myself. I believe drinking these detox waters will help me for the better.
Have a great, and healthy weekend readers!
