“You have to at least drink 5 to 6 glasses of water every day”, this was the condition imposed by my mother when I was a kiddo. In response to which she uses to purchase me my favourite things.
I never liked to drink water considering it as a burden as well as a monotonous task. So to make me drink a sufficient amount, she used to make fruit drinks with my favourite fruits and ingredients. And believe me, I lustily used to go for it. Earlier which was merely for fun later became a habit. And since then I drink water infused with fruits almost every day.
We know water and fruits both have the same functions i.e. to keep us healthy and fit. ‘Water’ could be considered as tires of a car while ‘fruits’ as engine oil. For a car to run, both of the things are equally needed.
Water and fruits
The human body consists of 60% water. To make that water content stable we are required to drink a sufficient amount of water every day. Failure in fulfilling this demand of our body often leads to dehydration which later results in muscle spasm, kidney dysfunction, bladder cancer, etc. Sometimes it can also be lethal.
Fruits on other hand give us energy, boost our immunity help in weight loss, lower the risks of diseases and so many other things.
Now think of mixing these two interesting things. Indeed the combination resulting would be super healthy and tasty.
How does the combination work?
Drinking water infused with fruit is the easiest way to hydrate and detoxify the body without any intakes of added sugars and calories.
