Recipe » Magic Elixir No. 1

Hydration on and off the course is critical for our overall health and well being. A healthy cleanse can get us on the right foot to more pars and cleaner bodies. A cleansed body will help us perform better, and we’ll look good to boot!

The best way to flush out toxins is lots and lots of water. Check out Christina and I in the Kitchen to learn how much water is enough.

But you don’t have to drink it plain; you can add a little flavor as well with these delicious (and detoxifying) additions. Add all of these to a large pitcher or bottle of water and drink throughout the next day for an effective way to detox! It helps to let these pieces soak overnight in your fridge to let the flavors meld.


Preparation and consumption:

All ingredients are mixed with the water in a glass container and then left to stay overnight, preferably in the refrigerator. The drink should be consumed throughout the next day.

Benefits of each ingredient:

Lemon: Lemon water makes for a powerful detox drink; lemon juice helps to cleanse and alkalize the body.

Mint: Mint adds a touch of sweetness without the sugar to your water, and it also helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion.

Cucumber: Cucumber water isn’t just for spas. Adding a few slices of cucumber to your water makes for excellent re-hydration, and cucumber contains anti-inflammatory properties.

Ginger: The spicy root helps cleanse out your system, aids in digestion, and settles your stomach.
