Health Benefits of the ingredients in this mint and lemon water.


Cucumbers:

They are an excellent source of caffeic acid and vitamin C, two antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce signs of aging and overall health.

Lemons:

They are often used in detox diets because of their ability to aid in digestion, clean the system, and flush out unwanted toxins from the body. Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which absorbs water and flushes it out of your system, which helps you lose weight. Lemon juice also helps alkalize the body, which is essential to keep bodily functions at their best.

Mint:

This refreshing organic herb is a favorite for teas and mouth care because of its refreshing properties. An animal study published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal showed that peppermint extract was able to reduce LDL cholesterol levels.
