Stay hydrated with our Cleansing Cucumber Lemonade!

The fresh-squeezed lemon juice in this revitalizing beverage delivers powerful detoxing properties. Lemon juice flushes toxins and alkalizes the body. Alkalizing is a process that involves consuming foods high on the pH scale. The American diet tends to be too acidic. We consume a lot of low-pH foods like soda and cheese. Our bodies need to be alkalized to maintain optimal health. Sipping some homemade lemonade can help balance your pH level. Alkalizing your body and maintaining a balanced pH level has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and cancer.

Cucumber is a natural refresher rich in minerals and powerful anti-inflammatory properties. A couple slices will hydrate your system and help you mellow out. It can be tough to drink enough water daily, especially if you’re not used to drinking a lot of water. Although it’s important to drink eight glasses of water a day, adding cucumber to your beverages is a great way to start the hydration process.
