We all know we need to drink more water. But sometimes a glass of water is uninspiring and unexciting. Adding fruits or herbs to your water bottle can not only make it more enticing, it can also add surprising health benefits. Here’s some ingredients you should pop into your water bottle to really kick-start your health.
Lemon: Lemon aids in digestion, boosts the immune system, and helps to cleanse the body. This is why you often see it as the main ingredient for detoxes! Add a squeeze to your morning tea and some slices into your water bottle.
Cucumber: Cucumber aids in hydration and contains anti-inflammatory properties. It also includes vitamin B which helps as a pick-me-up, making cucumber a great addition to a 3:30pm drink of water at the office!
Mint: Mint settles the stomach and aids digestion. It’s also a really nice flavour, with a bit of natural sweetness to it.
Add these things individually to your water (hot or cold) to feel their benefits. Or, for a really super-charged drink, combine them all together in one pitcher or water bottle. It’ll be the healthiest fruit punch you’ve ever drunk!
