Detoxifying Mango And Ginger Infused Water

Besides tasting great, this thirst-quenching beverage has numerous medicinal uses, like relieving migraines and menstrual cramps, and boosting your memory and sex drive!

Did you know Ginger and Mango both boost your metabolism?

Studies have shown that along with boosting your metabolism, ginger is also a natural pain reliever. From migraines to menstrual cramps, ginger heals a lot of pain. Ginger also helps reduce morning or motion sickness and banishes heartburn!

Mangoes not only boost metabolism, they also aid in digestion, boost your memory and increases your sex drive! (Yep… I went there!)

All you need is:

  • 1-inch thick piece of ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced. be sure to use a thick piece, not a long skinny piece. If it’s too skinny, you won’t have much ginger left after peeling.
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh mango, cubed.
  • ice cubes
  • water

That’s it!

PLEASE NOTE: this is an infused water and so it won’t have a very strong flavor. The water is very refreshing and the flavor is very light, but the health benefits are da bomb!

This detoxifying water will do a lot for your body, so make a pitcher today and enjoy!
