Importance of the Citric Acid For Your Body Detox

All citrus fruits contain the essential antioxidants and enzymes which aid the body in capturing and processing toxins.

The lemon detox diet is a highly effective way of flooding your system with citric acid, as well as antioxidants like vitamin C, because it is brief but highly intensive.

-Add a dash of cayenne pepper or ground ginger.
-Using a spoon stir well. Add 4 oz of cold water then stir again.

-If you can't stomach the salt water drink, this can be substituted with one teaspoon of senna tea replacing the salt.
-Take either the salt or senna tea solution in the evening.
-It is recommended you have a multi-vitamin or mega multi-vitamin each day.
