Anti bloat drink:
Here you go fellow cleansers the anti-bloat drink recipe – famous from Jillian Michaels You can sip on this all day long – really helps I enjoy the bitter taste. It super simple to make only 4 ingredients and one is water!
This is Jillian Michaels’ detox water. It consists of distilled water, cranberry juice, organic dandelion root tea, and lemon juice. Why these particular ingredients mixed together? It’s a natural diuretic drink!
But WAIT! Isn’t distilled water bad for you? The short answer is no…distilled water isn’t bad for you. Many people have this misconception because distilled water is slightly acidic and doesn’t contain any organic minerals because everything except for the pure H2O is removed during the distillation process. You want to use distilled water for a cleanse or detox because you want the pure water to help remove toxins from your system, not add more toxins back into your system!
Moreover, your kidneys regulate the minerals you consume through the foods you eat, so unless you have existing kidney issues, this drink will not harm you however if you have questions ask with your doctor or ask Jennifer from yesterday’s post on Instagram: @ jennifergularson she is a PA-CIFMCP Functional Medicine practitioner With that said, we use spring water or alkalized water for daily water consumption while not detoxing. We don’t recommend distilled water for daily consumption because our diets are already very acidic by nature, so alkaline water is the best way to go to keep your pH balance in check.
This is a detox water that you drink along with your clean, healthy meals…it is not designed to be a full-fledged cleanse, rather it should be used to reduce bloating and water weight. It’s perfect to drink when you’re seven days away from a big event.
What you need:
- Organic Dandelion Root Tea Bags
