Apple Cider Vinegar and Cranberry Detox Drink
We all have those times we wish we could just hit the reset button. Unfortunately, reality being what it is, there’s no do-over for when you accidentally sleep through your alarm, like an ex’s Instagram post from three years ago, or paste a long “what are we” text from your drafts into a message to your boss instead of the phone number you thought you copied. (Just me? Okay, moving on then.)
There is, however, a reset button when it comes to your diet. No, strictly speaking, you can’t undo a month of Christmas cookies or a week of fine dining and cocktails on the beach. (Nor should you want to!) But the right detox drink can help you refresh, reset, and get back on track. This apple cider vinegar and cranberry detox drink can help kickstart your metabolism, boost energy, and rev up a sluggish digestive system. ACV and cranberry juice are the perfect combo to help detox kidneys, liver, circulatory system, and give your immune system a boost. This detox may even be helpful for a quick hangover cure (although we can’t promise a reset on any of the embarrassing drunk texts you sent.)
Why It Works
Whether we’e talking about our bodies or our social media habits, “detox” and “cleanse” are words that get tossed around a lot. But what exactly do we talk about when we talk about detoxing?
Essentially, detoxing is a way of getting your body to do the things it should be doing more efficiently. It’s like closing all your tabs and restarting your computer when it’s going slow. It helps rid your body of the things it doesn’t need to get it working at its optimal functionality.
Hydration is obviously key to any health plan. Hydrating with detox drinks like this one helps accelerate the process, flushing out your system and giving your body a fresh start. Of course, what you put into your body is just as important as what you cleanse it of. When you start your day with this apple cider vinegar and cranberry detox drink, you’ll replace all those toxins with tons of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.
Whether you need to restart after a night of sugary cocktails, a month of heavy holiday meals, or just a plain old diet slump (it happens to the best of us), this refreshing apple cider vinegar and cranberry detox drink will cleanse and revitalize so you can get back on track.
Go Ahead, Press Reset
