Healthy beverages intro

Before we dig in to the benefits of lemon for healthy beverages, let’s explore world of lemons first.  You will find it very informative.

Lemons are the most widely grown acid species belonging to the citrus group of fruits.  Lemons rank number three in production tonnage and have been used for generations because of its therapeutic properties.  Lemons are rich in vitamins B and C and have a cleansing effect on the digestive system.  There are several 3 basic ways to blend your healthy drinks and the benefits from using lemons and drinking lemon water.

Water Enhancers- Are They Really A Healthy Drinks Alternative?

Water enhancers- Are they a healthy drinks solution?

Flavoring water using water enhancers

Water Enhancers A Healthy Drink Alternative?

Water is an essential part of life- all life. Many people today are severely dehydrated from drinking everything BUT water. The problem, or rather the complaint often heard is: water doesn’t taste good. A bad taste in your mouth makes it hard to want to indulge in something, even if you know it’s good for you.

Here is something interesting.  It’s been proven, many people today that think they are sick, could very well be dehydrated. Making water taste better helps a great deal when it comes drinking more water. A new trend today in your grocery aisles has been what’s called affectionately, “water enhancers”. These are really convenient and can be put into any bottle or glass of water.

Water enhancers quick test for healthy drinks

When it comes to water enhancers in general or healthy drinks in particular, here is a simple acid test to determine if what you are thinking about drinking is really a healthy beverage solution.

If you can’t pronounce it, or it uses the description “ose” don’t buy it.  Typically these are chemical ingredients.

If it looks pretty and colorful, stay away from it.  Usually these are food coloring dyes

If you see artificial sweeteners, buy something else.  These have been proven to be worse for you than the calories you save

You have to be your own judge and jury when it comes to healthy beverages.  When it comes to the acid test and a score of three out of three should tell you, don’t buy it, don’t drink it.

Water enhancer review

Now that you know how to measure healthy drinks, let’s review water enhancers. Water enhancers are flavored consumables you can drop in your water to give it flavor without deflating the value of the water. They come in a variety of flavors to tempt any palette, and this stuff really makes the water taste good. You’d be surprised how hydrated you will get when you actually like the taste of your water.

Some say water enhancers don’t add a bunch of junk into your water; they just put the good stuff in there. Others say watch out for the artificial sweeteners and especially the food coloring/dyes they contain.  Water enhancers contain both artificial sweeteners and food coloring dyes.  We think these water enhancers could have been developed more on the healthy side by eliminating the food dyes and replacing artificial sweeteners with natural sweeteners.

Some water enhancers deliver an energy boost, others come with vitamin, like orange flavor with vitamin C, so you not only drink your water; you get things often void in bottled water like minerals and vitamins! These elements are removed in the filtering process, but home filters leave enough in there. There are plenty of healthy water enhancers out there for you to buy.

Here is the best part of water enhancers.  Just squeeze the flavoring of your choice and enjoy your favorite flavored waters!
