Why You Should Be Infusing Your Water
April 13 2016
Water is a miracle drink that can cure many ailments but it is not always easy to get the amount of water recommended each day, especially when you’re on the go. Here are a few ways to make getting that daily dosage of H20 a little bitter easier – and tastier.
The Elixir of Life
The list of why water is beneficial is endless. Water boosts the metabolism, cleanses the body of toxins, helps with digestion, calms an appetite, improves mood, releases water weight and aids with weight loss. The Mayo Clinic recommends 3 liters of water per day for men and about 2.2 liters for women. Another tip: Appease a case of the munchies by drinking two glasses of water before a meal.
Creating the Perfect Concoction
Spas have been incorporating infused waters into their relaxation rooms for decades. Infused waters are a great way to add in antioxidants and flavors without the extra calories or sugar. There are no rules about infusing, simply add in your favorite fruits and refreshing herbs. To keep things fresh, be sure to change out your mixers every other day.
Ones to try:
- -Cucumber and mint
- -Grapefruit and rosemary
- -Fresh berries and organic unsweetened coconut water
- -Pineapple and ginger
On the Go Convenience
Carting around a liter of water isn’t always an option. Many nutrition experts recommend a reusable water bottle with an infuser to add flavor and freshen up refills. Keep it simple by choosing a brand with a one-two-punch like BalanceDiet’'s water bottle infuser that combines the benefits of a water bottle with a built-in infuser. Vary your recipes and the challenge of staying hydrated will be a thing of the past. We can drink to that!
