Detox Water 101

Every once in a while, a new trend pops up in the industry that promises the biggest and best benefits for losing weight and to be honest, most of the time these new fads promise a whole host of lies. One of those trends is Detox water. We’ve all seen all those striking photos on Instagram and Pinterest and vowed to give it a shot. But is it worth our time? What is the fact from the fiction?

What is detox water anyway?
Detox water is water that has been infused with the flavors from fresh fruits, vegetables or herbs. It’s sometimes referred to as fruit-infused water or fruit-flavored water.

You can make detox water at home in lots of different ways, using any combination of fruits, vegetables and herbs that you like. Because it’s made by infusing flavor, rather than juicing or blending, detox water contains very few calories. All you need is a bottle for a single serving or mix it all in a pitcher for guests.

So what’s the point?
Detox water tastes great and for most people it is much better than plain water because, let’s face it:
Water can be boring.
Which is why people often turn to sugary sodas and fruit juice.
But infused water brings the great taste without the extra sugar. And that is the reason why detox water has been so popular. This is also why detox water is often recommended in weight loss plans.


Most of the benefits associated with Detox or Infused Water are mostly from the water itself. There is no scientific proof regarding the benefits of the infused ingredients but the flavors help make the water taste better which makes you drink more of it. Hence these amazing benefits:

  1. Boost Your Energy
  2. Get Rid of Excess Waste From Your Body
  3. Help With Weight Loss
