How Infused Water can help you stay hydrated

Drinking Infused water during the Summer or anytime during the year is the best way to stay hydrated. Summer months especially are very brutal to the body. One important thing we cannot forget is keeping the body hydrated. The answer is if you don’t like the taste of regular water, use Infused Water.

I am a huge fan of sharing excellent tips to make life easier for many people. I find the State Farm commercial about the girl supposedly going out with a French model amusing and ironic. The statement about not believing everything you read on the Internet is true. One must distinguish between what is real, genuine, and false.

We simultaneously find and don’t believe the information provided over the web. We will remain passive when we know for sure the information is incorrect. It happens to all of us, and we cannot help because we rely on the next person to act. I have found myself shaking my head more often when what I call “weird” information is shared as if it was a discovery.

We need to remember the benefits of infused water

We keep forgetting to go back to the simplest things we learned from our ancestors. Natural ingredients are what we keep forgetting. We are guilty, but we need to continue teaching one another and hope for the best. Let’s go back to sharing valuable tips.

There are several ways we replenish the body. Healthy foods and water are essential elements for nourishment. Because I am always on the run, I have found ways to keep hydrated with water, fruits, and vegetables. I wanted to share these tips with you because they have worked for me.

Many of us are not great fans of plain water. Drinking veggies or fruits-infused water have worked for me. Apples, lemon, lime, carrots, cucumbers, oranges, watercress, and lettuce are mostly the ingredients I used. I only used boiled water to make the infusion. Vitamins and flavors are extracted from the fruits and veggies when boiling water is added.

The only part that may not be manageable is the fruits and vegetables in the pitcher. A drink maker pitcher is ideal for Infused Water. I was fortunate to find a pitcher with a long cylinder-shaped basket to hold the fruits or veggies. This type of pitcher helps with drinking Infused Water. The fruits and veggies have time to flavor the water compared to a short or round cylinder or basket. There are many beverage containers on the market; finding one that matches your need will not be difficult.

The options

I do not add honey to my infused water because I enjoy tasting the natural sweetness of the fruits and veggies. Sugar, as it has been proven, is not easily digestible. The older we get, the longer it takes our body to absorb and digest many types of food. Many women especially tend to have a small pouch below the abdomen. Unfortunately, the bag does not often disappear with exercise and a proper diet.

Many women have been blessed and do not worry about getting a small pouch. Childbirth, for example, maybe the cause of the little pouch for many women. But stress does not differentiate between men and women. It affects us in different ways. Changes in weight and hair color are just a few causes of stress. We should not stop taking care of ourselves.
