I find that citrus fruit is very refreshing. When I feel bloated or dehydrated, I turn to citrus fruits to refresh and relieve that feeling. Grapefruit and oranges are packed with vitamin C, fiber, and contain up to 90 percent water. Therefore, they’re ideal for preventing bloating and feel refreshed. Mint helps with digestion and promoting skin health. Finally, red onion is a good source of the nutrient biotin. Biotinsupports a healthy metabolism.
