Water is one of the vital elements required for human survival. However, many people struggle to meet the daily requirement of water needed to keep their bodies hydrated. Some feel that water is tasteless and just too bland so, they never feel the urge to drink and usually it’s replaced by other unhealthy drinks like processed juice or soda, which makes it worse because now you’re taking unnecessary calories with no nutritional benefit what so ever. Infused water is the perfect solution for these people, because now you can add some flavor to it and personalize your water to your liking. Whether it is oranges, lemons or cucumber slices that you add to your water you will definitely feel the difference in taste. Moreover, there is a nutritional value added to the water as well.
It is also important to mention that while you do gain some nutrition from each infused fruit, you do not ingest the same fiber, nutrients, and vitamins as you would when blending fruits/veggies and drinking them. In addition, measuring the exact nutritional density of infused waters is also difficult because of how long, at what temperature, and in what amount of water you infuse your ingredients.
