Detox Drinks For Body Cleansing | How Often Should I Drink Detox Drinks?

Lemon water is a popular detox drink.

Whether you are trying to support a major body cleanse or you just want to boost your energy, there are drinks that can help you.

Do you want to know how often to drink these cleansing drinks or when to consume them? Are you looking for a few delicious and effective body cleanse drink recipes instead of a large list of 50? You are in good hands! I have put together a comprehensive guide to the best drinks around.

What Is a Detox Drink?

There’s nothing supernatural about a detox drink — it is just a drink made with herbs, fruit, vegetables, vitamins, or minerals that help remove toxins from the body. It can be juice, tea, a smoothie, or even water. For best results, make it with all organic ingredients and don’t add any refined sugar.

Different ingredients work better for detoxing your liver, kidneys, digestive system, and whole body, and I will reveal which homemade drinks work best for different organ systems. I will also recommend some homemade, do-it-yourself (DIY) drinks for cleansing toxic metals from your body and for weight loss.

Do Detox Drinks Work?

Drinks made for detoxifying your body can have a positive impact on your health. But, keep in mind they are not a magic solution. Whether you drink a tangy green juice every morning or partake in a temporary diet to cleanse your body of toxins, detox drinks are just one tool to support your health journey.

Depending on your goals and how often you consume them, you can get the following benefits from a drink.

  • Reduce fatigue
  • Improve digestion
  • It’s a good idea to reduce the number of times you have occasional constipation.
  • Boost your immune system
  • Flush out toxins
  • Promote weight loss
  • Improve the health of the whole.
  • Nourish your body

Popular Detox Drinks

Green juices, teas, and master cleanse lemonade drinks are some of the options that can be found in a detoxify drink. You can learn more by following this link.


Many different types of tea can help you detoxify, including turmeric, lemongrass, marshmallow root, and milk thistle. Avoid herbal laxative teas that contain Senna and Cascara, which are harsh and may not be safe for the digestive system.

Two ingredients I recommend for detoxification are dandelion root and green tea leaves. You can make your own tea by buying ingredients or premade teabags from a natural health food store.

Dandelion Root Tea

Dandelion root has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese medicine and ancient Indian medicine (Ayurveda) to support liver and gallbladder health[1] — a use confirmed by modern science.[2, 3] Dandelion also promotes the production of bile and stomach acid, so people with gallstones or ulcers should avoid it.[1]

You can purchase dandelion tea at a natural health store. You can buy premade tea that contains dandelion root, but some natural health food stores sell dandelion root and dandelion leaf in bulk so you can make your own tea. For a sweet flavor, combine it with marshmallows root and a flower.

Green Tea

Green tea is known for its antioxidant properties.[4] Antioxidants work to counter damage to cells caused by toxins and pathogens, so drinking a tea or juice with high antioxidant properties helps your body detoxify.

Studies have found that green tea lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol and blood pressure as well.[5, 6] Matcha green tea powder has 100 times more antioxidants than plain green tea.[7] While green tea is an infusion from the tea leaves, matcha powder is made by grinding up young green tea leaves, which results in more detoxifying antioxidants. Matcha has positive effects on the kidney and liver.[8]

Master Cleanse Lemonade

Lemons have many powerful properties that assist the body in detoxing. Lemons help with cleansing the liver, kidneys, and colon.[9, 10, 11] One of the most popular detox diets, the Master Cleanse, is lemonade made with cayenne pepper, organic lemons, and pure maple syrup. You can make the lemonade in single glasses, or a large pitcher — but add the cayenne as needed to each glass, or it will make the drink bitter.

Use two tablespoons of organic lemon juice, two tablespoons organic grade B maple syrup (not the fake stuff), one-eighth teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 10 ounces of distilled water. This is a juice-only cleanse; drink only this lemonade for 10 days. Afterward, transition off by drinking fresh-squeezed organic orange juice for one day, and then eating a homemade vegan soup for two more days.

Most Master cleanse participants flush their body with sea salt water first thing in the morning and then consume it on their empty stomach. Sea salt is added to one quart of warm water. It will take about 30 to 45 minutes to get done.

Green Juice

Green juice is all the rage among health enthusiasts. This healthy drink can start your day off with a shot of antioxidants and nutrients — power for a positive day! I drink a delicious green juice almost every morning. I change it up based on what I have in the refrigerator, but a favorite includes fresh apples, lemon, parsley, celery, kale, cucumbers, ginger, and romaine lettuce. Drink it down in a couple of minutes for a super-boost of energy. I’ll give the recipe below.

Juicing concentrates the fresh, raw nutrients in the fruits and vegetables, giving you a quick shot of nutrition — far more than you could consume in the same period. Apples provide an all-natural sweetener, especially if you are not yet accustomed to the piquant taste of pure, all-vegetable green juice. Lemon juice also balances out flavors and provides excellent benefits for digestion, weight loss, and detoxifying the kidneys.

It is easy to make your own juice with a juicer. If you want to improve your health, you should invest in a juicer.


Some people wonder why they should waste all the pulp that comes from the fruits and vegetables when you juice. If that’s you, try a smoothie instead of juice. Smoothies retain the fiber from fruits and vegetables.

Another trick is to save the pulp left from juicing, pack it into ice cube trays, and add frozen pulp cubes to smoothie recipes. If you are making smoothies for detoxing, do not add sugar. Instead, use fruit like bananas or berries to sweeten your smoothie.

What’s the Best Detox Drink?

If you want to find out what the best drink is, read on. Water is the best way to cleanse, but there are other ways to add flavor and additional cleansing properties to your water.

Pure Distilled Water

Truly, the best drink for detoxing is always water! Because tap water can be contaminated, using a proper water purification system is essential for your health. I recommend distilled water because the process by which it is made removes all contaminants; it is pure H2O. Distillation involves bringing water to a boil — which converts it to steam — and then sending the steam through cooling tubes where it condenses back into pure water. This process also removes all of the naturally occurring minerals, so you might need to supplement to get them back.

To keep all your organ systems working efficiently, I recommend that you drink at least eight glasses per day — especially if you are trying to detox. If you want to take it to the next level, try water fasting. I completed an 18-day water fast and created a series of videos, one per day, documenting my experience with it. I also drank hydrogen-infused water to ensure the greatest benefit during my fast. Studies show that water fasting slows aging and improves cell recycling and promotes the body’s natural healing properties.[12, 13, 14] It can also give you a flat belly and help you kick-start a lifestyle of healthier eating.

Purified Water With Apple Cider Vinegar

My favorite drink — I drink this all the time — is purified water with a splash of raw, organic, and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (ACV) and a dash of Himalayan pink salt.

The vinegar adds a slightly tart and tangy taste to the water. Apple cider vinegar has incredible detoxification properties. It’s full of probiotics, has a powerful ability to resist all kinds of harmful organisms,[15] and it helps normalize blood sugar levels.[16] Distilled water with ACV — with or without added lemon juice — creates the perfect alkaline drink.

Detox Water

Detox water is just water infused with one or more fruits or vegetables, like watermelon, cucumber or lemon. If you infuse your water with the right ingredients, you can detox while you hydrate. Always use distilled water. If you have to use tap water, purify it with a filter that removes toxins.

Watermelon Citrus Water

My favorite drink is watermelon. Watermelon has a lot of vitamins that make it great for your body.

  • For the best results, pour a gallon of water into a glass pitcher.
  • A cup of fresh watermelon is in the cube.
  • The juice of lemons and oranges should be squeezed.
  • Add 1 lemon wedge
  • Add 1 orange wedge
  • Cucumber slices should be added to mellow the harsh flavor of the fruit.

These drinks can be consumed before a meal or in place of a meal if you are intermittent fasting. There are many other delicious recipes.

Detox Drinks for Weight Loss

Many people are on the lookout for convenient ways to help them lose weight and they wonder if detox drinks will do that. The answer is that they absolutely can! However, it’s important to use detox drinks (and intermittent fasting) as a regular habit, not just a crash diet. Fasting and drastically reducing calories — which can be done by substituting a drink for one or more meals — have scientifically valid benefits.[12, 13, 14]

Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera juice has slimming properties. Aloe promotes the digestive system’s production of mucus, which has a gentle, mild laxative effect and also can improve gut health.

You can buy aloe vera juice (note, this is different from aloe gel) at health stores and drink a four-ounce glass of it. If the taste is too strong, dilute it with water in a larger glass. Make sure your aloe juice does not contain more than five ppm (parts per million) aloin from the outer leaf, as this can irritate the gut. You can also buy aloe in capsule form, and some people like to release the contents into a glass of water rather than drinking aloe juice.

Detox Drinks for Whole Body Detox

There are several ways to do a whole body cleanse. If you want an overall body detox drink, I recommend green juice. You will need a juicer. Wash all items before juicing. Although organic farmers don’t use as many chemical pesticides, laws allow them to use some — so even organic produce may have chemical remnants.[17]

Dr. Group’s Morning Green Detox Juice

Store the items in a glass jar after you add them to your juicer.

  • There are 2 stalks of organic vegetables.
  • There are 2 organic green apples.
  • 1 organic lemon that has been peeled.
  • There is a bunch of organic kale.
  • 2 organic cucumbers are peeled.
  • A head of romaine lettuce.

Detox Drinks for Kidney Cleansing

Kidneys perform critical detoxifying functions for the body, including excreting waste into the urinary system. To keep kidneys functioning well, you can consume kidney cleansing drinks.

You may know of the benefits of cranberry juice for helping improve kidney function during a urinary tract infection (UTI). Pomegranate juice,[18] beet juice,[19] and lemon water can also help clean the kidneys. Lemon has been shown to deter kidney stones and protect liver and kidney tissue.[1, 2]

Kidney Cleanse Detox

I recommend trying this homemade beverage that contains lemon, a blend of herbs, and is sweetened with apple cider yeast.

You will need:

  • The lemon-ACV drink has 1 gallon of distilled water, while the kidneys cleanse drink has 2 gallons of water.
  • 2 ounces (1 full bottle) of Plant-Based Kidney Health
  • Most health food stores carry 1 bottle of organic raw apple cider vinegar.

How to Make the Kidney Cleanse Drink

  • 1 gallon of distilled water is enough to start.
  • To make room for the other ingredients, pour out 5 ounces of water.
  • The whole bottle of plant-based health should be added.
  • Add some organic apple cider vinaigrette.
  • The juice of a lemon can be added.
  • Shake it and keep it cold.

The next four days are when you can drink this gallon. Bring a large water bottle with you if you need to work or run an errand during the day. You should drink as much as you like. The more you drink, the more successful your cleanse will be.

Kidney Stones Detox Drink

If you have kidney stones, drinking lemon, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar is a natural remedy that can help. Follow these instructions:

  • 2 ounces of organic olive oil and 2 ounces of organic lemon juice can be used for the first symptom of stone pain.
  • You can drink it straight and then drink a glass of water.
  • Wait 30 minutes.
  • Next, squeeze the juice of half a lemon into 12 ounces of water and add a dash of organic apple cider vinegar and drink.
  • If symptoms improve, repeat the lemon juice, water, and apple cider vinegar recipe every hour.

Detox Drinks for Liver Cleansing

Many foods have liver-cleansing properties, but beets, lemons, grapefruit, turmeric, peppermint, and apple cider vinegar are among the best. Peppermint is one of several herbs with strong liver-cleansing properties. Not only does peppermint stimulate liver bile production,[20] but it has also been found to protect the liver against toxic metals.[21] Not only that, peppermint relieves stress.

A few foods that can be juiced to make a delicious juice are apples, carrots, and beets. My water that’s described in the Best Detox Drink section is also great for the body.

Dr. Group’s Liver Cleanse Juice

  • 3 organic carrots were washed.
  • The organic beets were peeled and washed.
  • 2 organic red apples that have been washed and cut.
  • There are 6 organic kale leaves.
  • ½-inch ginger root
  • The organic lemon was peeled.

Add all the items to a juicer after washing and peeling them. You can blend them in a blender if you prefer a thicker juice. If you prefer a cold drink, add ice to it.

Turmeric has liver-protecting effects and can defend against many types of toxins.[22] It also has antioxidant activity and reduces the body’s production of cytokines, which cause systemic irritation.[22] You can make a delicious turmeric drink for your liver.

Golden Milk

Golden milk is a drink made from milk that is vegan and has other spices added for flavor and additional health benefits.

  • 2 cups of milk of your choice.
  • Ground or fresh turmeric can be ground or grated into powder.
  • Ground ginger or fresh ginger can be ground or grated.
  • Black pepper is ground up to 4 ounces.
  • One cinnamon stick or dash of cinnamon.
  • Honey (optional)

In a saucepan, whisk all ingredients together. You can skip this step if you want, but you have to combine the flavors. Drink warm as a golden milk latte or cold as a golden milk latte.

Detox Drinks for Gut & Digestive Health

If you want to improve your digestion, try a detox smoothie. As opposed to juice, where the pulp is discarded, a smoothie retains the natural fiber from the fruits and vegetables. Ginger has excellent digestive benefits, including reducing nausea and vomiting.[23] It also helps other digestive issues, including gas, bloating, and constipation.[24]

It is a delicious and soothing drink that will help you start your day off right.

Lemon Ginger Detox Tea

  • There are about 2 cups of water.
  • Cut the organic lemon into slices.
  • There is a piece of fresh ginger that has been peeled and sliced thin.
  • 12 of a gram of ground turmeric is fresh.

Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan. Keep a close watch or the water will evaporate! You can double the recipe if you want to drink more the next day. Do not use a microwave as they negatively affect nutrients.

Kickin’ Ginger Lemon Water

If you want to have a hot drink for your body, try this delicious recipe.

  • For the best results, pour a gallon of water into a glass pitcher.
  • The fresh juice from the lemons should be squeezed into the water.
  • The third lemon should be cut into wedges.
  • ginger root is about 1 inch in length.
  • Fresh ground red chili powder should be added to the mix.

Stir together and enjoy!

Drinks for Toxic Metal Detox

Toxic metals can accumulate in our bodies from the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. Mercury, lead, cadmium, and other metals are common in the environment, and even low levels have harmful effects on the body.

Dr. Group’s Toxin-Free Super Water

It works well for removing toxic metals when I drink super water regularly.

Take half your body weight and drink ounces of super water every day during the cleansing process. If you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of super water daily. Drink this water frequently to maintain overall health.

  1. You should start with 1 gallon of water in a glass bottle. You can add the ingredients below by pouring out some. It is possible to add water to your liking.
  2. The organic apple cider vinegar should be added to the gallon of water. It’s time to shake well. If the taste is too strong for you to handle, you should reduce the amount of liquid you consume to 1 percentage point per gallon.
  3. If you want, you can add the juice of 12 an organic lemon and 1 to 2 ounces organicAloe Vera juice per gallon of super water. These additions will help with your cleansing results.

To really boost your toxic metal cleansing effort, try Heavy Metal & Chemical Cleanse. The formula is an integral component of the 30-day toxic metal cleanse. Add 20 drops of Heavy Metal & Chemical Cleanse to one-quarter cup of distilled water and drink this first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. Repeat 20 minutes before your evening meal. Repeat this for 30 days, and drink the super water throughout the day.

Answers to Common Questions

Do you know what to expect when drinking a drink that is made of alcohol? Some of the most common questions have been gathered and answered by me.

Do I need to stay close to a toilet?

No, for the most part, these drinks in and of themselves will not affect your digestion so strongly that you will need to rush off to the bathroom. The exception is the juice from the aloe Vera plant. I recommend starting with a small amount and seeing how your body responds before consuming more than that.

How often or over how many days should I drink the detox drinks?

These drinks can be added to your healthy daily diet plan on a regular basis. If you are consuming most of these recipes, like golden milk or mint tea, have them as often as you like! Or you may want to try detoxing your body for a certain period by eliminating processed foods, meat, dairy, and other foods. In that case, if you want to replace a meal with a drink, consume your drink of choice as a replacement for breakfast or 30 minutes before lunch or dinner. If you are doing a full liver, colon, or kidney cleanse, I recommend a five-day plan.

When I make detox water, do I squeeze the fruit or vegetables into the water or just put them into the water to infuse?

If you squeeze the fruits and veggies, it gives more flavor to your water and also infuses your water with more of the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals from the produce. After squeezing the juice into the water, you can add them to the pitcher or jug, which will allow the flavors to deepen.

What do I do with the leftover fruit once the water is consumed?

You can add it to a smoothie if you freeze it.

Should I drink these refrigerated or at room temperature?

If you are cleansing, you should drink room temperature drinks because they will help your body process the cold water more efficiently. If you don’t drink all of it, you can keep it in a pitcher for 24 hours, but if you do, you can keep it refrigerated.

Will detox drinks make me lose weight?

Not necessarily. Some ingredients do kick-start metabolism, but if you want to lose weight, you need a balanced diet with physical exercise as well. Try to eat a healthful, plant-based diet. Detoxing your body systems can help with weight loss, and healthy drinks are a great accompaniment to any type of cleanse.

Boosting Your Detox Regimen

Your body can cleanse itself of all the toxins you are exposed to if you drink a delicious and healthy drink called a “detox drink”. It is possible to make a world of difference if you choose ingredients that target the organs that you have trouble with.

The results may be different. Information and statements are not intended to replace the advice of your doctor. You should see your doctor if you have a serious medical condition.
