Cynthia Sass is the nutritionist behind the drink, “Sassy Water,” which is obviously named after her. This special water provides effects on the digestive system and can significantly provide relief from bloating. To make the Sassy Water, you need:
- Eight glasses of water
- A teaspoon of ginger root, freshly grated
- One cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
- One lemon, also sliced to pieces
- 12 mint leaves
- One teaspoon of dried mint
Place all the ingredients into one container and leave them overnight in your refrigerator. The next day, consume at least four glasses of the mixture. Start in the morning before you eat your breakfast to get faster results – usually in one minute.
This drink is effective because of the combination of ingredients. Drinking the mixture helps calm down the gastrointestinal tract, while it gets rid of excess water in the body. Lemon, an alkaline food, can aid in losing weight because it is a natural diuretic and provides the right pH balance in the body. Cucumber contains enzymes that digest protein and promotes healthy weight loss. Meanwhile, mint calms down the stomach, while helping improve the digestion process. Finally, ginger is a very health beneficial spice that does not just aid in weight loss, but also fights cancer.
