One thing we’ve often noticed is that when we feel heavy and like we’ve overdone it, it’s hard to start gulping down water. One of the best things about this drink (aside from what it does to help “flush” your body, of course 😉 ) is that it tastes great and that alone encourages you to fill your stomach with it, rather than dig yourself deeper in the hole with more food or other drinks.   And for some reason, the grapefruit, particularly, for us is such a great addition to the water–in getting us to sip. 🙂

Here’s what this delish drink is all about…

For starters, water is the elixir of life! It regulates the bowel, helps your body remain cool through perspiration, flushes out toxins, and aids in digestion.  By infusing water with grapefruit and rosemary, this refreshing and tasty concoction is one you will want to keep drinking throughout the day especially at those times when you want a healthy “system” reboot and a nice flush.  The water in combination with the grapefruits’ potassium– will help to restore normal fluid balance and flush salt.   Buh bye bloat! 😉

Another bonus? You’ll boost your immunity and help to prevent free radicals from damaging your cells and from causing inflammation thanks to grapefruit’s Vitamin C.   As you stop damage and inflammation on the inside, your body can rest, relax and recharge –more peaceful on the inside for rejuvenation!

Rosemary’s helpful detox perk:

Rosemary is a fantastic way to get antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that help to fight the damage from stress, pollution and everyday living—as well as the damage from less than healthy food and drink.  Rosemary’s powerful compounds seem to neutralize those harmful free radicals, help boost the immunity and improve blood circulation—helping to deliver nutrients and oxygen throughout your body and to your skin—helping it to glow (awesome for those days when you feel lackluster!).

Rosemary’s anti-bloat benefit:

Pssst…Get this…In Europe rosemary is often used to help treat indigestion – and Germany’s Commission E has even approved it for its treatment.  Although there is currently no scientific evidence to support this, we believe rosemary is so good for your detox drink that you’ve got nothing to lose but possibly a little indigestion and bloat!
