H2O REVAMP

Haven't we all asked the question "How much water should I drink?" or "Is eight glasses of water a day enough?" The recommendations and answers to these questions are varied depending on your body type, your health, what you eat, how active you are and most importantly where you live. Nevertheless, one must keep in mind the benefits of being hydrated as water enables you to flush out toxins, carry nutrients to the cells and maintain a healthy digestive system.

Don't wait to be thirsty to have another glass of water. Make it a way of life. Make your water interesting by trying to infuse flavor in your water bottle, jug or container at home with healthy fruits and vegetables. You could pick your favorite fruits and vegetables wash them well, chop into pieces, slice them thin or just chuck them whole. These goodies will add taste to your water, make it look stylish and is 'super healthy'.

Here are some interesting ways to revamp your water bottle:

Strawberry and Kiwi:
The bright colours of these fruits will call out to you. Both strawberry and kiwi are good for your heart and immune system. For my friends with diabetes these fruits help regulate blood sugar as well.

Cucumber and Lime:
Literally, the 'coolest drink ever'. This drink will keep you cool through summer, it aids digestion and flushes out the toxins from your body. Not only does cucumber have a hormone that helps the pancreas secrete insulin but also has potassium that helps control blood pressure and regulate the heart functioning. Lime is a care taker of nail, hair and skin, a natural anti-ageing drink in a bottle.

Orange and Mint:
This drink has the miracles of Vitamin C, Potassium and Minerals. Oranges are low in calories and high on fibre, ideal for people watching their weight. Both mint and oranges are natural anti-oxidants that also increase our resistance to diseases.

Blueberry and Basil:
Blueberry slows the emptiness of your stomach, regulates blood glucose level and cures heart diseases. Basil also promotes cardiovascular health thus improving blood flow and lessening heart risks. This could be your lifesaver in a bottle.

You can also get creative with different fruits and vegetables like apples, grapes, raspberries, watermelon, plum, pomegranate, lemons and add a twist with herbs and spices like coriander, mint, rosemary, basil, ginger, cardamom or cinnamon.

Water is an essential part of your life; make it fun by involving your kids to fill the water jar with their favorite fruit. Make your water bottle, filled with goodness be the star on your desk at work. And let the beautiful colours remind you to take a quick sip every time.
