Why is Detox Water so Popular?

Detox water recipes are a much used search term. Detox water is basically any water that has been infused with other ingredients to help flush the toxins out of your body. It’s very popular with people trying to lose weight because it uses water to detox your system, and some of the infusions can help you in other ways too. Some may boost your metabolism, some may help burn fat. Some stores stock prebottled detox water, but you can buy your own bottle and infuse your own water. A bottle like that has a special compartment for you to put fruit, or other ingredient to infuse into the water.
