If you are dehydrated, some of the biggest side effects can be headaches, lack of energy, feeling tired,  a weakened immune system (frequent colds and slow wound healing) and foggy thinking.

How to Make Flavored Water

Adding fresh fruit, unsweetened fruit juices and herbs make the best natural water flavoring you can use. You don’t need to buy the expensive flavored water brands at the store, you can make your own at home!  The taste is far superior!

  • Fruit Juice:  Adding fruit juice to water makes a healthy water flavoring.  Mix about 1/4 cup of your favorite unsweetened fruit juice (fresh or bottled) to a tall glass of iced water (regular or sparkling).
  • Flavored Ice Cubes:  Add fruit flavored ice cubes to a tall glass of water (regular or sparkling).  As the ice cubes slowly melt, they’ll add a delicious refreshing pop of flavor to your chilled water (along with a little vitamin and antioxidant boost).
  • Fruit Infused Water:  Add whole fresh fruit (and herbs) to a tall glass of water (regular or sparkling) to make fruit infused water.
