Detox water has been gaining currency in the health and fitness circles for a while now and here is why. It is becoming increasingly important for us to make sure our drinking water is not deprived of its essential minerals and one way to ensure that is by consuming detox water infused with the goodness of fruits and herbs.

To stay in good health and flush out toxins daily, an average person must consume 2-4 litres of water a day but since that never happens, it is a good idea to go for detox water instead.
