Consuming plenty of fluids doesn’t have to be a bore. There are countless of ways to spice up plain ol’ water, such as naturally infusing it with fresh fruits and herbs. One of my go-to favorites is a refreshing combination of fresh cucumber, mint, and lime flavored water.
Mint – This well-known breath freshener is very soothing for the gut and may be able to help relieve undesirable GI issues, such as bloating and indigestion. Mint is also rich in antioxidants and research suggest it may aid in curbing appetite as well.
Lime – These gorgeous fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C. They also contain unique phytonutrients, such as flavonol, glycosides, and limonoids which have powerful protective and antibiotic qualities.
Cucumber – This rehydrating fruit is ultra refreshing and adding it to water provides an infusion of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, iron, calcium, and potassium.
