Trying to course a healthy lifestyle? Ever tried detox waters? Drinking detox water is a great way to stay hydrated during a detox, and can be used as part of an everyday regimen. Fresh flavoured water keeps me motivated to drink my daily intake of water and most of all, keeps me away from fussy or sugary drinks. Another great benefit of these detox waters, you can serve them to your kids! Baby Jax just loves fresh fruit. They look really pretty in class jugs and are also perfect to serve at summer parties.
