The benefits of water are infinite. What can’t it do? Okay, it can’t grant you spidey senses, but water can increase your energy levels, flush out toxins, and give your immune system a boost. It can also offer a solution to bad breath. That’s pretty much a superpower. Not to mention, those are just a few added benefits of water. There are plenty more! If you drink enough water, you’ll pretty much be the all the Avengers rolled into one person! I love drinking water, but sometimes it isn’t as appealing as a Coke or coffee. If you’re like me, try infused water with a few different things to make it more exciting and even more benefits!
Infused Water Ideas
Strawberry and Rosemary
Rosemary improves your digestion and can help you concentrate. Strawberries are a great way to protect your heart. They can increase good cholesterol and lower your blood pressure. If you have a stressful event coming up, this is the infusion for you. If you’re a student, I highly recommend this! I know finals are just around the corner.
Lemon and Mint
Like water, lemon is great for hydration and improving your complexion. I wish I had drunk more lemon infused water during my teenage years (I refuse to share any pictures). If you’re looking to lose weight, then lemon can help you with that too! Lemon is a great breath freshener just like mint. Mint is amazing for your digestive track. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, try adding some mint. As we get into the colder seasons and the common cold strikes you down, mint is going to be your best friend during these times.
Not only will this look beautiful on Instagram, but there are so many great ways to use rose water. Rose water, which is made from rose essential oil, can be put directly on your skin to prevent inflammation and healthier looking skin. I have too many skin allergies to count, and I usually turn to rose water before I take Benadryl. If you have an upset stomach, rose water might be a helpful solution for you. You can also drink rose water; however, it is necessary to dilute it with plain water. Just add a couple teaspoons into your regular drinking water, and you’ll thank me later! You can also add real rose petals just for the aesthetic and aroma!
Basil and Blueberry
Basil can help with inflammation, and it contains antioxidants. Blueberries work great with basil, and not just because they taste amazing together. Researchers believe that blueberries might contain the highest number of antioxidants out of all fruits and vegetables.
