Often, we feel pressured to make gigantic investments in supplements and online "experts" in order to keep our bodies regulated. But did you know that you can accomplish a toxin-free lifestyle with some basic pantry items? Read on to learn more!

You don't necessarily need to purchase a ton of expensive weight loss, fast-acting teas, or supplements in order to effectively flush your body of toxins. 

If you're experiencing bloating, sluggishness, or perhaps took a day or two to treat yourself and indulge in fast food, sweets, or the like; and are ready to get your digestive system back on track, try "brewing" a couple of these easy drinks at home!

H2O: Nothing beats good, old-fashioned water.  Adequate water intake enables your body to excrete waste through perspiration, urination, and defecation and helps your kidneys remove waste from your blood.

Ginger tea: Ginger works as a detoxifier, helping remove harmful chemicals from
the body. It also improves digestion, suppresses the appetite, and keeps the metabolism effectively active throughout the day. 

Cucumber & Mint-infused water: Cucumbers have cooling and detoxifying properties that aid the liver, and add extra hydration being that they are mostly made of water.  Mint works similarly to ginger; providing anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory aid that helps proper digestion. 

Pomegranate juice: Pomegranates contain a high level of Vitamin C, which 
promotes immunity, burns fat, metabolizes proteins, and filters the blood. 

Hot water with lemon juice, cinnamon, and honey: This mixture is not only delicious, but it helps promote overall gut health, helps rid the body of excess fat, and can reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
