Water And Digestion

Water is very essential to the body and its processes. Adding some herbs, fruits and vegetables to the water will not only improve its taste but can offer some added health benefits such as cleansing and boosting the digestion process.

9 Water Add-ons to Boost Digestion and Cleansing

Fresh Mint Leaves For Digestion

Mint leaves contain digestive enzymes which aid the absorption of vitamins and nutrients from the food. Mint leaves can also help you with upset stomach.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Add a couple of tablespoons of vinegar to your water to improve digestion, remove the toxins from the body and speed up metabolism. Apple Cider Vinegar also balances the pH in the body.

Ginger Root

Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help relieve nausea, cramps, indigestion and flatulence.

Freshly-squeezed Lemon or Lime Juice

Lemons and limes are also good for alkalizing and cleansing the body as well as aiding in digestion because their make up is very similar to our own digestive enzymes

Cucumber Slices

Cucumber has the ability to eliminate toxins from the body and improve digestive functions.

Cloves

In addition to stimulating digestion, cloves can also be used for ailments of the digestive system and are thought to have anti-parasitic properties.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon is another traditional herb that has anti-fungal and anti-viral activity and is used to relieve indigestion. A small stick of cinnamon added to your water or a sprinkle of cinnamon powder in the water will improve circulation and digestion, decrease sugar levels and speed up metabolism.

Chia Seeds

To treat constipation and maintain regularity add one to two teaspoons of chia seeds to a glass of water and drink it. Chia seeds are packed with fibers that bind with cholesterol and toxins and eliminate them from the gut by easing bowel movement.

Triphala

It is an Ayurvedic formula that consists of three fruits: Amla (Indian Gooseberry), Myrobalan (Haritaki), and Belleric Myrobalan (Bibhitaki). Several studies have shown that it is a laxative and has anti-inflammatory properties. Mix half a teaspoon with 8 ounces of water and consume daily before bed. You can gradually increase the dose as you figure out your tolerance level.
