Drinking mint-flavored water is a great home remedy for digestive problems, but modern research has proved that this natural diuretic can help stop colitis and irritable bowel syndrome. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and B12 with traces of iron, potassium, selenium, and zinc.
2 Oranges (add some lemon slices if you like)
20 mint leaves (crushed)
1 gallon of water and ice
Wash and slice oranges into thin rings.
Break the mint leaves into small pieces.
Place ingredients into a dispenser/pitcher.
Fill with with ice and water, let the water soak up the flavor of citrus and mint for at least 10 minutes.
Be sure to add fresh mint leaves and then crush them. This crushing spreads the mint oil from the leaves so you can drink the water right away, or you can let it set for a few hours for a stronger flavor.
Ditch the soda, drink refreshing infused water instead.
