Infused Water - Citrus Water (Lemon, Lime and Orange)

I've chanced upon a page in Facebook where it shares a lot of healthy tips for its followers and I just happened to be one of them. It's my first time to have learned about these "infused water" there, where you would add fresh fruits, herbs or vegetables in the water. There are lots of examples on the list like these combinations:

  • Green tea, mint and lime - fat burning, digestion, headaches, congestion and breath freshener.
  • Strawberry and kiwi - cardiovascular health, immune system protection, blood sugar regulation,  and digestion.
  • Cucumber, lime and lemon - water weight management, bloating, appetite control, hydration,  and digestion.
I wanted to try the Citrus Water which is the Lemon, Lime and Orange combination (should be at room temperature). It aids in digestion, lots of  vitamin C, for skin care, immune defense and heartburn. This flavor infused water can also help us clean the toxins in our bodies, which is also the main reason why I tried this one.

What do you need to make a Lemon, Lime and Orange Infused Water? Just simple, you will only need: 1 Large Orange, 1 Large Lime, 1 Large Lemon (our lemons here are not that big, so I used around 10 small lemons, hehehe), I sliced them all and add them in 2 liters of water and serve after 30 minutes. :)

Note: Do not keep longer than 48 hours. You can put more water using the same fruit, but discard after 48 hours.
