While our body works its own course of eliminating toxic substances from the organs-you can also opt for healthy detox drinks to enhance the process. There is a gamut of ways to detox yourself, but Ayurvedic herbal remedy can be a natural approach to it. Ayurveda is one among the world’s oldest holistic healing systems that believes within the delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its primary focus is to revive and maintain the harmony within the body. A herbal drink can help flush out various chemicals and toxins from our body while boosting our energy levels, improving digestion, cleansing the liver and also further promoting healthy skin. Here are some of the ayurvedic detox drinks that you can try at home.
1. Tulsi Tea
Tulsi leaves can regulate the production of gastric mucus in the stomach, which helps protect lining of your stomach walls. The leaves contain antiulcer properties which may help to reduce the effects of gastric acids while bringing relief in a few minutes.
Method: You can add Tulsi extracts or crushed Tulsi leaves in your normal cup of tea to experience better results.
2. Mint-Ginger Tea
This tea is laden with antioxidant properties. It is a perfect concoction to prevent indigestion and gas after a heavy meal. The presence of dietary fibre further helps in regulating bowels.
Method: Add 1 tbsp of grated ginger with 2-3 crushed mint leaves in your tea.
3. Lime-Pepper Water
Lime and pepper are bestowed with a decent amount of vitamin C. This nutrient is good for our overall immune system. The coolness of the lime can help to improve digestion and can also cure the inflammation caused by acidity.
Method: Drinking a glass of warm water mixed with lemon juice and a pinch of pepper powder, early in the morning can work wonders.
4. Cumin Water
Cumin may help to increase the activity of digestive enzymes. The seeds are used as a natural laxative to manage ailments like constipation, diarrhea and even piles.
Method: Add 1 tsp of cumin in a glass of water. Leave it overnight. Then sip into the infused water the next morning. You will surely feel the difference in your digestion.
5. Amla Juice
Amla is packed with fibres that can help to add bulk to your stool so that it passes easily from the tracts. Drinking a glass of amla juice on an empty stomach can also help to get rid of flatulence and bloating.
Method: In a blender add 1 cup of chopped amlas with ½ cup of water. Blend it until it is smooth in texture.
