You have to agree that staying hydrated is very critical to our health and drinking plain old water is no fun.
This delicious yet health detox water is packed with Vitamin C and is great for your skin.
A recent study showed that a compound that is found in cinnamon ignites the process of thermogenesis. (https://linkinghub.elsevier.com/retrieve/pii/S0026049517302123)
While in thermogenesis our body produces heats, as a result burns more calories than it normally does.
Also, cinnamons are diuretic, that means it will help you lose that extra water weight we carry due to high sodium intake.
Cinnamon is high in antioxidants (even more than garlic and cloves), particularly, polyphenol which can help us with our weight loss goals and digestive issues.
I like it most for its aroma and I use Ceylon cinnamon only.
High fibre in oranges keeps our gut clean and healthy. Eating oranges as whole or infused in water is more healthy than juicing them.
Oranges are extremely filling when you eat them as slices.
It has lower calories than apple per serving.
So those were the benefits guys.
Here is my recipe of orange cinnamon and honey infused detox water.
- 1/2 Orange
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
- Half Tbsp Honey
- Mint Leaves
- Filtered Water 1 Liter
- Cut oranges into slices and free them up from rind and white pith. Or you can keep them if you like it high fibre. Keeping them will make the little bit bitter.
- Add oranges, cinnamons and mint leaves in a 1 liter jar and fill it with water.
- Add honey
- Mix well
- Steep for at least 4 hours. If you steep more get rid of rind and pith.
- Add ice-cubes before you drink
Squeeze half lemon if you want it more tangy.
