We've all heard how important is to stay hydrated and drink eight glasses of water a day. It's good for your immune system, your metabolism, your skin, and your overall well-being. Well, health fanatic Kourtney Kardashian cares very much about all those things, so it's no surprise that she has her own special recipe for "detox water" that she always keeps handy at home.
“Since drinking enough water every day is a huge part of my wellness regimen, I have big pitchers at home infused with healthy ingredients,” she wrote on her app, as reported by PEOPLE. “Studies show that drinking 8 to 12 ounces of filtered water with fresh lemon first thing in the morning helps jump-start your metabolism and detox your body, while mint and ginger are effective in keeping your immune system strong.”
The oldest Kardashian is a huge fan of detoxing, so it's no surprise that she's got pitchers of the stuff around her house. Here's the recipe for her special detox water, if you want to hydrate like Kourtney:
- ½ cucumber
- ½ lemon
- 2 inches fresh ginger root
- 1 lime
- 10-12 fresh mint leaves
- Pinch of Himalayan salt
1. Cut cucumber, lemon and lime into thin slices and chop ginger into cubes.
2. Add all ingredients to a large pitcher of water and stir in fresh mint.
Nothing groundbreaking, but it sounds refreshing, delicious, and healthy—and way tastier than plain ol' water. Bottoms up!
