What is Detox Water?
Detox water is a kind of water that has been infused with the flavours of fresh fruits, vegetables or even herbs. It can also be referred as fruit-infused water or fruit-flavoured water. It is very simple and in various ways to make your own detox water at home. You just have to add in the fruits, vegetables or even herbs which you prefer.
Detox water contains very few calories as they are just made by infusing flavour, rather than juicing or blending. This makes them a popular drink for detox regimes like the "lemon detox" or "master cleanser."
