Know how to make flavored water and its many benefits
We can’t stress enough the importance of staying hydrated no matter the season. Whether it’s a hot summer or the cold of winter, our bodies need water to function properly. If you’re not a fan of water, here’s a list of freshly flavored water concoctions with various fruit infusions – to get even the most reluctant among us getting the regular amount of liquids.
But first, let’s know how to make them-
Wash the fruits, vegetables or herbs you intend to use. Depending on your preference, you can chop or slice the fruits or vegetables. Then, pour your aromas into the carafe or container. Feel free to play around with the mixes and the amount you use.
Fill the container to the brim with water. If using a bottle, cap it and shake it gently to allow the juice from the chopped and crushed fruits and spices to mix with the water. If you’re using a large jug of water, give it a good swirl with a spoon.
It tastes great and contains iron and vitamin C. This drink is known to fight wrinkles and other ailments whether used alone or in combination.
Cinnamon and apples
Cinnamon lowers blood sugar levels and improves insulin sensitivity, while apples have been found in tests to fight various diseases. After all, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?
Sage and blackberries
Blueberries contain catechins, which stimulate fat burning cells in the body and help in weight reduction. Studies have also shown that blueberries prevent memory loss and deterioration of motor skills. Sage contains a lot of vitamin A, calcium and iron.
Mint and watermelon
For starters, if you’re trying to beat the summer heat, that would be just amazing. Melon and mint both contain natural electrolytes, which help regulate action neurons and muscle support in our body. Mint leaf extracts also block the production of histamines, which promote allergy-related nasal symptoms.
Lime and mango
It will definitely taste exceptional. Who doesn’t love these fruits? Plus, mangoes and limes are high in vitamin C, making them a powerful combo for boosting your immune system. Mangoes are also high in fiber, one of the few fruits to have enzymes that break down protein.
Do not hesitate to experiment, to vary and let your taste buds discover a new universe.
