Candy, fat and alcohol make the body produce toxins and the body gets more acidic, so we feel heavy. I’ll give you some tips on how to detox the body after parties !
Water after party:
Drinking 1.5 to 2 liters of water daily is law and should not miss on detox process . Drinking 1 or 2 cups while fasting expels all toxins and still “wakes up” the metabolism, causing it to work properly all day.
Another fasting option is to drink warm water with lemon and ginger zest. The combination helps the liver eliminate toxins from poor diet and alcohol.
Coconut water is also highly recommended as it maintains healthy metabolism and prevents fluid retention.
The power of teas
Teas are also to detox the body after the parties, as they help fight abdominal bloating. Green teas, hibiscus tea, mint, fennel, lemongrass, lemon balm, chamomile and cinnamon apple are best because they are diuretics. A good tip is to have green or mint tea right after meals, so digestion is easier. The indicated dose is up to 1 liter per day, you can make a jar of tea and put in the fridge.
