water with mintWe all know about the importance of drinking eight glasses of water a day. It's a habit that will not only help keep a well functioning digestive system, but it also helps fight fatigue, guard against water retention, prevent constipation, and the list goes on and on. With that said, I've been the first one to forget this good rule of thumb and have been missing out on all those wonderful benefits BIGTIME! Soooo, a little creativity with some of my favorite natural ingredients led me to a simple recipe that is already giving me some nice rewards, particularly in my abdominal section. Horray! Check out the recipe and tell me how you too are finally seeing great results.
