Water is literally the best nourishment for your body. Have you been at the receiving end of a condescending look by your doctor when you inform him that you don’t drink 3 litres of water a day? Well, we have. So we’ve been gulping down all the water we can. But is that enough?
Well, it should be. But these 6 spices will add that extra touch of medicine which will benefit you all the more. Hey, we take whatever we get, right?
Ginger has been used for centuries as a remedy for treating cramps, nausea, flatulence and bad digestion. It improves blood circulation and has anti-inflaming and antivirus properties. Cut up a piece of ginger into small, little cubes, add it water and drink. Be sure to eat the chopped ginger after. We also advice a mouth freshener after especially if you’re going out on a date.
Cinnamon regulates the blood sugar level and also helps in the fat reducing process. It is also a remedy against viruses which improves bad digestion as well. Add one piece of cinnamon into a glass of water and let it stand there until it aromatizes the water. Drink the water during the day.
Clove helps with problems in organs included in the digestion process and successfully fights against parasites that are found in the human body. Put three to five cloves in water and let the stand still until they release their flavor into the water. After you drink the water you can eat the cloves but be careful because they are quite spicy.
4. Freshly Squeezed Lemon
Both lemon and lime are excellent sources of vitamin C, an important antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals, but also clean the body and help digestion. Squeeze half a lemon or lime in water.
5. Mint Leaves
Mint Leaves help with stomach pain, activating the salivary glands and in digestion of food in the body. What we suggest is putting a piece of lemon and some mint leaves in a bottle of water and store in your fridge. Drink through the day to remain fresh.
Cut the cucumber into small pieces and add to water in a bottle. Water has fresh taste and it is useful for expelling toxins from organs included in the digestion process. After you drank the water, eat the slices of cucumber because they are good for your health since they contain antioxidants and fiber.
