Proper hydration is among one of the best things you can do for your health. It can improve cognition, sleep quality, and mood, not to mention maintaining a healthy weight!

AmaWaterways is passionate about the well being of each of their guests, so they strive to make sure guests on board their river cruise ships stay hydrated on board, & their dedication to wellness is incorporated into everything they do. You will also be able to sample a variety of detox waters, available daily at their ships’ hydration stations when sailing with AmaWaterways!

If you’d like to replicate our detoxifying water recipes at home, here are a few that you can try:

Cucumber Lemon Water

The lemon in this recipe is great for boosting the immune system & removing toxins. Cucumber is an anti-inflammatory which also helps you to stay hydrated. Mint sweetens your drink without adding unnecessary sugar and also aids in digestion!

64 oz. water
Medium-sized cucumber (wedged or sliced)
1 lemon (wedged or sliced)
10 fresh mint leaves

Preparation: Mix about eight cups of water with wedged or sliced cucumber, a whole lemon and about ten mint leaves. Mix in a large pitcher and allow it to steep in the fridge overnight.

Lemon and Ginger Water

If you didn’t know: Ginger is a natural pain reliever, so adding it to your water can give you a wonderful detox. This is a great first morning drink. Not only will it help to relieve pain throughout your day, it will remove toxins from your body, and the lemon juice helps to release toxins so they flush out better. And it tastes so fresh!

12 oz. water at room temperature
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 inch knob of fresh ginger root

Preparation: When preparing this recipe, add your lemon juice to the water & then grate the ginger into it using a zester or grater.

Simple Morning Detox Water

Drinking at least eight ounces of lemon water every morning will flush out the toxins and keep them from building up.

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Preparation: The easiest way to make this water is to just squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon into a tall glass of water each morning. There’s no recipe aside from squeezing fresh lemon juice into a glass of spring or filtered water. You can also add ice if you’d like.
