First things first, when I say detox, I mean detox. Which I think is about better digestion, good bowel movements, and not feeling bloated, and in some people's cases, clearing out toxins from the body. But the media these days advertise detox = weight loss, which is really quite sad..
This mixture really helps me when I eat not-so-good-for-you food (especially when eating out) and feel bloated/sleepy/tired. But I also find that drinking the mixture everyday in the morning right after waking up makes me feel more awake, and usually a few minutes after, I get a bowel movement!
