Our bodies contain about 60% water, so the more we hydrate, the healthier our bodies, and all the cells in them, are, because water transports oxygen and essential minerals and vitamins. So, instead of popping antioxidant supplements, relax and drink some spa water instead! Introducing your water to cucumber excretes the vitamin k that helps boost bone health and keeps cells strong with those antioxidants from those pesky free radicals. Lemons are abundantly rich in vitamin C which rejuvenates the skin from within bringing a natural glow to your face. Another health benefit is that drinking lemon water is a great weight loss remedy. Herbs like mint, basil, and lavender, are compacted with essential nutrients that can help your inner health. Also, don’t hesitate to put those power house berries into a pitcher of water. There are so many different variations of spa water, but there are more health benefits to receive from each sip of spa water. If you would like to find a yummy treat to help cut down your fizzy drinks or sugar filled beverages, substitute with vegetable and fruit infused spa water!! Stop by CBU’s recreation center on wellness Wednesday to try a sip.
Put 3 slices of cucumber, 3 slices of lemons, and a pinch of mint in your next glass of water.
