by , 23 July 2013

You've probably heard that drinking eight glasses of water a day is ideal. But compared to coffee, juices and fizzy drinks, water seems so dull. Here's an easy, natural way to make pure water taste amazing. And the bonus is, you'll get the amazing benefits of staying hydrated with the satisfying taste of fresh flavours…

Many people struggle to drink water. If you do, the thought of drinking eight glasses a day is probably very daunting.

But as WebMD reveals, there are many benefits to staying properly hydrated. These include:
  • Eating less as thirst is often mistaken for hunger.
  • Keeping skin looking good and erasing fine lines caused by skin dehydration.
  • Preventing kidney stones and improving your kidney function.
  • Preventing constipation!

Proof that there’s no end to the benefits of drinking eight glasses of water a day!

How to make your own flavored water naturally

Smarter Fitter recommends this method for adding natural flavour to pure water:
  • You’ll need a large glass jar or sealable pitcher.
  • Cut any of these into big chunks and add to the jar: Oranges, lemons, naartjies, cucumbers, pineapple, peaches, melon.
  • You can also add herbs like mint, ginger and lemongrass.
  • You can sprinkle in some whole berries like raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries.
  • Fill the jar up with filtered water.
  • Close the jar and let it steep for at least four hours.
  • Pour over ice and voila! You have fresh and delicious flavoured water.

Try different combinations like ginger and orange or cucumber and mint. You might want to get two 1litre bottles and make flavored water in the evening. Let it steep in the fridge overnight and in the morning you’ll have your recommended eight glasses of water in a delicious and convenient form!
