The human body is made up of nearly 70% water, and drinking enough of it is integral to maintaining good health. Even mild dehydration can lead to physical symptoms such as headache, hunger, difficulty concentrating, constipation, and flaky skin. Almost everyone can benefit from drinking more water, however drinking the recommended eight glasses a day can be difficult. However finding ways to improve the taste of drinking water can make it easier to chug the good stuff down.
Drinking more water is easier than ever with these simple tips!
Add nutritional value
Water is great on its own, but it can be even better by infusing it with the tasty and nutritious flavors of vegetables, fruit, and herbs. Add fruits such as blueberries, lemons, and even pineapple slices to your drinking water for a refreshing and nutritious beverage that is far healthier than sugary soda or processed juices. Vegetables such as cucumber and herbs such as mint, cilantro, and even thyme can add medicinal value to your water while making it that much more refreshing.
Not all drinking water is created equal, especially if it comes from the tap. If you live in an area that has hard water or a high level of impurities, you dramatically improve the taste and safety of your drinking water with water treatments such as chlorine removal, water softeners, and reverse osmosis. Whole house filtration systems do an excellent job at purifying water, allowing clean and purified water to flow from every faucet of the home.
Kicking a soda habit can be difficult, however you replace the bubbly ? and sugary ? goodness of soda by drinking purified carbonated water. Flavored carbonated water is calorie free, sugar free, and can be especially crisp and refreshing. You can combine the best of both worlds but infusing carbonated water with fruit and herb flavors as mentioned above, for a satisfying, tasty, nutritious and guilt free beverage. Soda is not only filled with tons of refined sugar, but it is also brimming with artificial ingredients that are potentially harmful. Drinking carbonated water offers all the “benefits” of drinking soda without all the negative effects.
