Infuse life, spice up your water intake

Infuse life, spice up your water intake

Modern day diet includes a lot of water drinks – jeera Water, cinnamon Water, lemon water, mint water and more – Why?

There is no alternative to hydration than water! Water is the first thing we reach out to in the morning and the last drink we take right before sleep. While there is not enough stressing on why we should drink our daily dose of water regularly, the modern diets today focus on more flavoured water drinks like jeera water, cinnamon water, lemon water etc. While the flavour enhancers take care of the taste and nutrients, the daily dose of eight glasses becomes an easy target to attain. Here is why drinks like jeera water are preferred in modern-day diets.

A natural detox

There is no denying that water flushes out the toxins from our body and cleanses it. But the addition of lemon, mint and jeera actually aid the process by acting as natural detox agents. Mint, lemon and cucumber are hydrating, loaded with Vitamin C and provide a high dose of antioxidants to the body giving you freshness and rejuvenating the skin cells. Jeera water promotes metabolism, aiding in burning down calories and weight loss.

Keeps nutrition in check

While junk food and harmful fizzy drinks should be avoided, water must be taken to maintain nutrition. Water infused with fruits, vegetables, herbs and citrus flavours are high in vitamins and minerals while being low in calories. They make maintaining a diet an easy process.

Healthy substitute to sugar

Flavoured water drinks cut down on the caffeine and added sugar which otherwise increases the heat in the body. Flavoured water drinks have natural sugar and are good for sipping throughout the day for heightened energy levels.
