Apple Cinnamon Detox Water To Speed Up Metabolism

We can take advantage of natural and homemade beverages, such as apple and cinnamon water, to start reducing the consumption of industrial beverages, which are not beneficial to our health.

Apple and cinnamon detox water is proposed as a drink to accelerate metabolism and promote weight loss.

However, it is important to keep in mind that this type of beverage is not a substitute for main meals, but an option to hydrate ourselves in a healthy way. In this way we avoid falling into the consumption of industrial beverages, which contain large amounts of sugar and sodium.

We can flavor the water with some natural ingredients (such as lemon, cinnamon, orange, among others) and provide it with some extra nutrients. The apple and cinnamon mixture is one option, but there are many other combinations that we can try.


What would be the benefits of this detox water?


This type of detox drink is a form of flavored water, in which two specific ingredients are chosen: cinnamon and apple.

  • Cinnamon is a commonly used spice, very aromatic, which is pleasant to the palate. It combines very well with foods such as apples and can even enhance their sweetness, thus making us believe that we are consuming a beverage with a sweeter taste than it may actually have.
  • Apple is a fruit that also has a good aroma and a slightly sweet taste. If the red variety is chosen, this will be even more noticeable.
  • Both ingredients have components that are beneficial to health (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants).

The red apple and cinnamon blend is sweet, perfect for those with a sweet tooth. On the other hand, the green apple and lemon blend, for example, is perfect for those who like refreshing drinks.

Whether we choose the royal gala, fuji, red delicious, autumn glory or other varieties, the fact is that as long as the fruit is red, the drink will be sweet.

Contributions of apples


Apples, in all their varieties, in addition to being enjoyed natural, can be incorporated in hundreds of recipes, both raw and cooked.

When preparing detox water, it is best to opt for the red variety, as it tends to have a sweeter taste. On the other hand, if we prefer a more acidic touch, the best option is the green variety. In any case, we must bear in mind that, in general, apple drinks tend to be sweet.

The apple is a fruit that is a good source of fiber, which supports digestion, prevents constipation and helps ensure proper absorption of nutrients.

This fruit contains a certain amount of potassium and vitamin C, as well as flavonoids, procyanidins and organic acids.

Moreover, according to LiveScience experts, this fruit also contains vitamin A, calcium, iron.

By containing vitamins A and C, which have an antioxidant effect, it is considered that the consumption of this fruit could help minimize the effect of free radicals.

Contributions of cinnamon


This famous spice has been used in gastronomy due to its particular flavor and aroma. But beyond that, FEN experts indicate that it is a natural source of proteins, iron, calcium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B6 and C, phenols and aldehydes.

Cinnamon has anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can contribute to the health of the whole organism and, in particular, to the regulation of blood glucose and body temperature.

It is considered that its consumption can help to accelerate the metabolism and thus, favor weight loss.
