Have you ever heard of health benefits that raisin water can provide?
This refreshing beverage is an excellent addition to your diet, especially because it is highly beneficial for your liver health.
What is the secret of raisin water?
Water in which were previously cooked raisins stimulates certain biochemical processes in the liver that can help you to detoxify the bloodstream more efficiently.
The main ‘culprit’ for this is raisins itself. If you follow the treatment with raisin water for four days, you should be able to notice that your digestion has improved and that you have more energy.
Doctors often recommend that we eat the raisins in the morning because they promote heart health, eliminate bad cholesterol, lower the triglycerides and improve the functioning of the stomach and the metabolism.
Raisins are a natural source of minerals and vitamins. But their impact is dramatically increasing when you drink the water in which they have been sunk because raisin water reduces sugar levels in your blood.
How to make raisin water?
All you need is 400 ml of water and 150 grams of raisins.
The recipe is very simple, just follow the steps:
1. Choose the raisins carefully. Avoid the ones that are light in color and are very shiny because that is not a natural look and is the result of many chemical processes that are responsible for such “enticing” look.
Go for the darker ones that are neither too hard nor too soft.
2. Wash the raisins and set them aside.
3. Heat two cups of water to boil. Add the raisins and let them simmer for 20 minutes.
Sounds easy, but that’s not the end of preparation. It is necessary to leave the raisins to soak overnight.
4. The next morning, strain the water and warm up again.
You can drink this beverage hot or lukewarm, but it is important that you take it on an empty stomach. Eat breakfast a half-hour later.
5. It is ideally to repeat these several days in a row, minimum four.
After two days, you will notice that your stomach works better and that you have more energy. Therefore, this drink is especially recommended for people who want to lose weight.
Note* You can repeat this treatment every month.
