FRUIT-INFUSED WATER: REFRESHING AND REJUVENATING!
Staying hydrated is important: It can increase energy, relieve fatigue, and flush out toxins. And there’s no better way to stay hydrated than by drinking plenty of water.
But do you drink enough? Many admit that they don’t and often resolve to drinking water more often. Some people crave more taste and choose flavored drinks, but these are often high in calorie. So how can you stay hydrated with more flavor but without unwanted calories?
The answer is simple: fruit-infused water.
By adding fruit to your water for subtle sweetness, staying hydrated every day can be a fun and easy thing to do!
Give Your Water a Boost
Fruit, vegetables, even herbs, can add significant nutritional value to your water, along with subtle sweetness. Boosting water through an infusion of kiwifruit provides not only a hint of a tropical flavor, but also vitamin C and minerals like potassium.
Adding this flavor boost can also help inspire more water-drinking for people of all ages and minimize the intake of other sweetened or carbonated beverages. These are but a few of the many ways that water helps the body:
1. Keeps muscles active and strong, helps the body generate energy
2. Keeps skin clear and radiant
3. Improves digestion
4. Supports metabolism
5. Supports appetite control and weight management
6. Helps hydrate to endure sports, heat and exertion
7. Supports bodily organs to work their best
