There’s nothing more refreshing than a cool drink mixed with a few tasty ingredients that delight the taste buds.
The first benefit of the lemonade detox drinks is that it gets you to stop eating solid food, which puts a pause on any unhealthy eating habits you may have, and gives your body a break.
This alone will likely cause weight loss in many individuals.
Your digestive system is almost always continually at work processing the food you just ate, as well as meals you’ve finished previously even days ago.
By stopping the intake of food and drinking the lemonade mix as your only source of nourishment, you are emptying the digestive system and giving it a chance to catch up, so to speak. More benefits:
– Stops the influx of unhealthy food
– Improved digestion
– More energy
– Mental clarity
– Improved immune system.
