Quench Your Thirst with Fruit Infused Water and Get a Health Boost this SummerWater is life, a fact we know too well. It is a vital element required to supplement your nutrition and energy levels. The benefits of water are infinite. However, most people don’t drink enough water and the main reason they give is the dislike for the plain taste. Is that your reason as well? Well, there is a way out of it.
Hello infused water! You can infuse plain water with vegetables, fresh fruits or herbs. Flavored water is healthier than the usual thirst remedies, such as sodas and lemonades. If you love the taste of fruits, your water should have more fruits, and fewer fruits if you prefer a higher concentration of water.
Here are some of our flavored water recipes that will help maintain your water intake in the scorching summer heat.
Apple infused Water
Chop an apple (or use our apple slices!) and let it soak for at least an hour before use. Adding a few drops of cinnamon can help improve your metabolism and keep burning more calories. Apple water also helps regulate blood sugar and increase the fiber content in your body.1
Blueberry infused Water
The easiest way to get blueberry infused water is to add fresh berries into your glass of water, and that is it. You can also use freeze dried berries. Soak them up in water and wait for them to rehydrate. Then add them to your water to cool your thirst. Another quick way to let the blueberry juice “leak” into your water is to cut them in half.2
Strawberry Infused Water
If you like your water flavored with a delicious taste on a hot summer day, then strawberry is something you should consider. You can sip strawberry water throughout the day, improving your heart health and regulating blood sugar. Strawberries contain high levels of antioxidants, polyphenols, and vitamin C, which have an anti-cancer effect.3
Cucumber Infused Water
The hot summer can leave your skin dry. Drinking plenty of cucumber infused water will help soothe your skin, leaving it glowing by flushing out toxins. Cucumber water is high in Vitamin B5, which is a vital ingredient in the treatment of acne.4
Lemon Infused Water
To reap the benefits of lemon water, you have to drink it consistently. You can choose to take it warm or cold. You do not need to have too much of it; just a small slice is enough to trigger your taste buds. Lemons like any other citrus fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, which is an excellent antioxidant that is needed to protect your cells from oxidation.5
When your schedule does not allow you to make a fruit juice or a smoothie, go ahead and make infused water.
- Always soak your fruit of choice for at least two hours in water before pouring in your container.
- Refill your infused water container only when half full to keep sipping throughout the day.
