Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink With Ginger

If you’re ready to boost your energy levels, reduce inflammation, and fire up your weight loss, look no further than this apple cider vinegar detox drink with ginger.

There are so many ready-made detox drinks available at most markets, but why not make your own at home? And why not? It’s far more cost-effective, and you get to control the ingredients and the taste.

Why Do an Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink

When we start the keto diet, or even if we are on the keto diet and cheat a little, our bodies need a good cleansing! I normally will pull a 24-hour fast after I’ve eaten crappy food and incorporate this apple cider vinegar detox drink the first week.

What do detox drinks do?

The number one main reason people choose to do detoxes is to flush out harmful toxins from their bodies and, in turn, promote weight loss and overall well-being.

It’s important to note, however, that in order for a detox drink to work, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet. There’s no point in doing a 10-day detox only to have hamburgers and french fries the next day.

Proper nutrition is the best way to maintain optimal health.

How Many Days Should You Drink a Detox Drink

Whether you decide to use this apple cider vinegar detox drink for weight loss and an energy boost or any other drink, the general rule of thumb is to stick to your detox routine for 3-10 days. It’s always best to listen to your body anyway.

And as always, talk to your doctor before you embark on any kind of detox.

Do Detox Drinks Really Work?

I’m going to be honest here. The jury is still out on this one. If you Google this question, you will get mixed answers. Some say yes, others say no.

I think it’s important to listen to your body. That’s where the answer lies.

Side effects of apple cider vinegar detox drink

Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice are high in acid, so if you drink them too often, it may erode tooth enamel. I always swish a big mouthful of water right after drinking this apple cider vinegar detox drink to make sure all that acid is flushed out.

You may experience some discomfort if you drink this on an empty stomach. Thankfully, this detox drink with apple cider vinegar also contains ginger which is known for its anti-nausea properties.

More Tips on How to Make a Detox Drink

If you use powdery spices like cinnamon or cayenne pepper in your drink, make sure to stir really well, as they will settle to the bottom.

You can use your favorite herbal tea in place of regular water.

Remember, you can modify the amount of ingredients, or the ingredients, to your liking.

In closing

While doing a detox drink every now and then is relatively safe, you should also make sure you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle which includes:

  • cut out sugar
  • choose healthy, low-carb options
  • eat a diet of lean proteins
  • replace regular white bread with keto bread
  • try to aim for 3-5 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables daily
  • drinking plenty of water
  • getting regular exercise daily

It’s pointless to just keep relying on detox drinks to help you lose weight, have more energy, and flush the body of toxins if you’re just going to continue to eat an unhealthy diet. You need to do your part as well in living a healthy lifestyle.
