11 Overnight Detox Drinks for Cleansing and Rejuvenating

Detoxing regularly is like whispering “I love you” to your body and giving it a gentle hug 

When we think of looking after ourselves and nourishing our insides, we often focus on things like exercise regimes and nutritious meals. But what if using nighttime detox drinks to cleanse and detox our temple was the answer to feeling our very best every day? 

Overnight detox drinks are simple to make - and when made with certain natural ingredients - contain vitamins and minerals that can help our bodies stimulate detoxification, cleanse our organs and lead to a healthier lifestyle overall. 

Detox drinks can also protect us from everyday toxins and pollutants, and the natural ingredients in these drinks can help to manage these toxins before they lead to bigger health problems further down the line. 

In this article, we’ll explore 5 simple overnight detox drinks that can help boost your energy and keep sickness at bay. But first, let’s go over exactly what detox water is and some of the best ingredients to use for maximum results. 

 

 

Certain detox ingredients can help with better energy, well-being and a higher quality of sleep

Although there’s no shortage of speculation around the words ‘detox’ and ‘cleanse’, becoming a regular consumer of these hydrating drinks can have nothing but positive side effects for the body. 

Whilst many detoxes and cleanses on the market today carry high levels of sugar and other additives, the difference with a detox water recipe is its ability to deliver nutrients in the most natural way possible. 

In the most simple terms, detox water is water that has been infused with fresh fruits, herbs or vegetables. These drinks can be made with everyday ingredients that you most likely already have in your fridge or pantry at home. For this reason, detox water is the perfect option as a detox drink before bedtime.

While there are many ingredients that can be used for detox water, some of the main ones include:

 

Lemon

Lemon is a natural detoxifier and strongly aids digestion. It contains high levels of vitamin C and blends in well with almost every ingredient - a lovely addition to any nighttime detox drink. 

 

Watermelon

Watermelon is one of the most hydrating fruits available and is also a powerful antioxidant. Magnesium and potassium in each slice helps to detoxify the body, along with supporting anti-aging. 

 

Aloe vera 

If you’re in need of a drink that will balance out your pH levels, look no further than the natural essence of Aloe vera. This ingredient also works hard to boost the immune system and reduce any inflammation present in the body. 

 

Cucumber 

Think of drinking water infused with cucumber as the equivalent to putting on a fresh cucumber face mask before bed. This refreshing fruit helps to fight free radical damage and combat oxidative stress. 

 

Ginger 

The perfect addition if you’re looking to calm digestion issues before bedtime, ginger detox water is great for bloating and can have you waving goodbye to those frustrating nighttime stomach woes for good. 

 

Blueberries 

Detox water with blueberries is high in flavonoids, meaning these gem-like fruits are warriors against inflammation and fantastic for anyone managing any autoimmune flare-ups in the evening.
