Flavoured H2O | Strawberry-Mint
I have to admit that I don't drink nearly as much water as I should.
Water is important for a number of reasons:
- flushes out toxins
- increases energy & relieves fatigue
- improves skins complexion
- keeps you regular
- boosts immune system
- reduces the risk of cramps and sprains
A general rule for ensuring you are drinking enough water, is to consume half your body weight in ounces. For example a person who weighs 120lbs, needs to drink 60 ounces of water per day.
Consider this challenge accepted.
Of course plain water is great after a workout, but to ensure that I actually follow through on this plan, I've taken to flavouring my water naturally with fruits and vegetables. The flavour combinations are endless, but my favourite at the moment is Strawberry-Mint. Drinking water just got a whole lot easier!
