10 Infused Water Recipes and Benefits
Want to up your water game? Infused water is a delicious combination of fruits, veggies, herbs, and ice-cold water. Not only is it yummy, but infused water has many incredible benefits.
In this guide, we’ll share the benefits of infused water as well as some of our favorite infusion recipes that you can try today. Let’s dive in!
The Benefits of Infused Water
We know that drinking the proper amount of water each day is the key to staying hydrated and healthy for the long term. But what happens when you add fruits and veggies to your daily water?
One of the best (and most obvious) benefits of infused water is that it can encourage you to hydrate. Drinking water isn’t always easy, but having something flavorful without added sugars can inspire you to chug away.
Plus, certain ingredients in infused water can have some amazing health benefits if you enjoy them over time. For example, drinking infused water can support:
Healthy weight loss
Immune system protection
It’s important to note that while infused water has health benefits, you won’t get the same nutrients you would by eating fruits and veggies.
Enjoy infused water during a workout, while chilling with friends, or when working hard at your desk, but don’t use it as a meal or snack replacement!
