We Tried It: Dirty Lemon Detox

We Tried It: Dirty Lemon Detox

If you’re anything like me you’ve probably tried every detox you can get your hands on, from whacky juice cleanses to those bizarre Hollywood cookie diets (yup. google it!). I’m always ready to jump onto the latest bandwagon, so when Adina of S.W. Basics recommended the Dirty Lemon Detox as her favorite ways to alkalize your body, we had to give it a try.

Dirty Lemon is much more than an awesome name (with striped bottles to boot). It’s got lemon juice, yes, a raw and natural detoxifier. But it’s made with activated charcoal from coconut shells, which absorbs thousands of times its own volume in toxins. While it might seem weird to drink charcoal-infused water (especially when it has a black tinted glow), it really does a number to cleanse your body from the inside out. Plus, it’s boosted with ginger and dandelion root, which aids in your body’s natural digestive process. For that reason alone I like to drink it before bedtime or after an insane meal.

Unlike other detoxes we’ve tried in the past, Dirty Lemon is all about balance. While most detoxes require cutting out everything delicious (which obviously never really works out), this one complements your lifestyle instead of bringing it to a screeching halt. Meaning, you can have your cake, and eat it too – as long as you wash it down with a little Dirty Lemon!
