Now that #summer has arrived, here at Water2Drink we are always on the lookout for ways to help you keep cool and hydrated. Increasing your water intake is a natural step to take, but you can increase the health benefits of your water by infusing it with delicious, ripe fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Infused waters add flavor and nutritional benefits. Rather than choosing processed “vitamin water” or sugar-laden juice drinks, infusing your own water lets you control both the flavor and the ingredients. To make your tasty #infusedwater, start with a clean pitcher, water bottle, or even a large canning jar. Glass is preferable, as it is easy to clean and will not interact with the fruits or vegetables to produce off-flavors in the water. Fill the pitcher with fresh, filtered water using a Multipure Drinking Water System. All of the Multipure products are NSF-tested and certified to reduce the most contaminants, down to the submicron level.  Add sliced or chopped fruits and/or veggies in your favorite combinations, muddling the fruit (or smashing with the back of a spoon) to release flavors, and refrigerate.  You can also tear herb leaves and add them to the infusion.  For stronger flavors, prepare it a day ahead and keep it refrigerated until drinking. Consume within a day or two, then make another healthy infusion!

An array of health benefits may be had from infused waters. Citrus fruits (lemon/ lime/ orange/ grapefruit) and berries are an excellent source of vitamin C.  Dark berries (blueberry/ blackberry), black tea and pomegranate seeds are rich in antioxidants. Cucumbers can assist in ridding the body of toxins, and contain silica which promotes joint health. Many herbs such as sage, thyme, cilantro and chamomile are antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, so don’t leave them out!

Here are some yummy combinations to try, thanks to the InfusedWaters website:

Black Tea & Raspberry / Pineapple Mint / Blackberry Lime Orange / Cucumber Rosemary Fennel / Watermelon Cilantro / Orange Blueberry Basil
