You may have noticed that the Vitamin Water brand is filled with chemicals and sugar, right? While staying away from 99% of the “health” drinks available at our local supermarkets can seem like a challenge, finding ways to make your own vitamin waters is a simple and affordable alternative to promote natural toxin removal and abundant daily hydration.
I have been experimenting with my own vitamin waters over the last few weeks and have come up with four easy-to-make recipies sure to satisfy your thirst (and sweet tooth as well). Feel free to make a big pitcher in the morning and then sip on these naturally sweet treats throughout the day. They are far more fun than filtered water (also can ease with taste for those who are naturally water taste picky) and are great at keeping you away from soda or processed juice sweetness.
Check out a few of my favorite finds as well as their not-so-hidden health benefits:
(1) Green Tea, Mint & Lime – wonderful to aid in fat burning and assist with digestion, combating headaches and congestion; also a natural breath freshener and metabolism booster.
(2) Strawberry/Kiwi – promotes cardiovascular health, immune system protection, blood sugar regulation and aids digestion. Also is sweetly delicious!
(3) Cucumber/Lemon (or Lime) – supports water weight management, reduces bloating, assists with appetite control, hydration and aids smooth digestion.
(4) Oragne/Lemon (or Lime) – aids proper digestion, contains added vitamin C, supports immune defense, reduces heartburn. This one will give you a zesty morning kick!
Feel free to try out your own flavors and combinations but adding a little sweet kick to your daily waters will ensure that you are enjoying what you are drinking and staying energized and hydrated throughout the day :)
