Water is your body's source of life. Being hydrated not only improves your health and naturally flush toxins out of your body, but it also keeps your skin plump and elastic. The importance on keeping hydrated is nothing new to a lot of people and for those who are playing intense sports or doing a lot of physical activity. Your body uses water in different ways, including to regulate body temperature, vitamin absorption, and to aid digestion. You also lose water through sweating and breathing.
A lot of people struggle to drink they’re daily intake of water because they do not like the taste or the ‘no taste’ that water has. Many people may prefer either sparkling water or fruit infused water.
Fruit infused water is a great way to consume antioxidants. Most fruits are an excellent source of antioxidants as they contain vitamin A and Vitamin C. Rather than taking them in a supplement or food form you can directly get them from your water bottle.
You are also able to consume all the vitamins you could ever want, without any of the harmful additives like food colouring, sugar and other additives that are found in vitamin waters you find on store shelves. The fruit infused water also aids in weight loss. By replacing your morning orange juice or latte with a glass of infused fruit water, you could be saving yourself several calories in the long run!
To make your own fruit water you will simply need:
Place all of your desired fruit and mint leaves into a glass or water bottle, then simply add your water. Enjoy keeping hydrated!
