We have all been hearing the benefits of drinking 8-10 glasses of water each day. Its great for weight loss, hydrating your body and flushing out toxins. I initially used to struggle with gulping down 8 glasses of water each day and therefore have been reading a lot about infused waters and spa waters. They not only add great taste and flavor to water but also have numerous health benefits. I usually prepare a jug of infused water in the morning and refrigerate it for about 2-3 hrs. I replace the water 1-2 times in a day (fill it up usually when the jug is half empty). You could also prepare the infused water at night before going to sleep and refrigerate it over night to carry it to your work place/school etc. Check out the recipe of this yummy infused water.
1) Strawberries – Strawberries are great for the skin. Their extracts are used in branded cleansers, face washes, masks, exfoliators and so on. They act as an excellent skin cleanser and provides a glow to your complexion. The vitamin C and antioxidants present in strawberries are great anti aging agents. Apart from skin benefits, strawberries also have other health benefits such as it helps build immunity and is very good for eyes and digestion.
2) Lemons – Lemons help cleanse your system by flushing out the toxins from the body and also aids in cleansing the liver. It also helps aid digestion. Lemon water is great for the skin because of its cleansing, detoxifying, antibiotic and antioxidant effects.
3) Mint Leaves – Mint leaves add a nice refreshing and minty flavor to water. Moreover, it also aids digestion, improves the flow of bile from the liver to the gallbladder, to the small intestine, where it breaks down dietary fats. Mint also helps relax cramped up stomach muscles.
