The use of citrus fruits in cooking is very popular. Bland tasting food can easily be transformed and perked up into something tastier with just a few drops of lemon or lime. Citrus fruits are used in cooking meats, poultry and dessert. Grapefruit and oranges give zing to a boring fruit platter. Though taste is sometimes the main reason why we use citrus fruits in cooking, nutritional value is also another reason why citrus fruits should be incorporated into our daily diet. The best way to make the most of your infusion is to cut the rinds off your citrus fruits. In fact, cut your citrus fruits in sections, this way you can get rid of the bitter pith, too.

Another trend that’s worth noting is that water infused with fruits has become popular with the health conscious crowd. With many fruit infused water bottles available in the market, there’s one that will fit your style and needs. Drinking water has become a lot easier for people on the go, especially those who consider plain water boring! Infusion water bottles have a built-in basket for fruits. By adding cut-up citrus fruits and leaving it to steep, water is transformed into a tasty and nutritious drink. In fact, by making your own infused waters instead of buying bottled vitamin water or flavored water, you will be saving a lot of money in the long run. But the key thing here is you have to get a good quality fruit infusion water bottle, particularly one that is spill-proof, leak proof and also one that keeps your water cold. An insulated water bottle with its own koozie is worth investing in.

Let’s break down the amazing benefits of adding citrus fruits to your water:

1. Citrus fruits add vitamins and minerals to your infused water. In fact, citrus fruits are the most common sources of Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, a nutrient that helps the body fight and reduce the severity of common colds and other illnesses. Citrus fruits are also a good source of folate, niacin, thiamin and calcium. This means that by adding slices of citrus fruits to your ordinary water, you are transforming it into a powerhouse infusion drink. Add the fact that recent studies show that citrus fruits also function as antioxidants by preventing cell damage, adding citrus fruits to water is an easy solution to keeping your body healthy and primed.

2. Citrus fruits do not contain cholesterol, sodium nor fats. You can eat as much as you want. This also means that you can add as many cut-up fruits as you want to your infusion water bottle. Fill the basket of your water infuser bottle and leave it in the refrigerator to steep overnight. You will be rewarded with water that does not only taste great, but also packs a punch. Lemon in water can jumpstart a sluggish digestive system. It also can make you feel full when you drink lemon water before every meal. Not only is drinking water good for your diet, but since it helps the digestive system, it also can help you become more regular.

3. Citrus fruits are a good source of potassium, a much needed nutrient especially for those who are active or those who work out regularly. Potassium helps maintain the electrolyte balance of the body. Muscles work better and will be less sore the morning after a workout if you’re properly hydrated. Do not underestimate the amount of water your body loses through perspiration and sweat.

Make good choices by drinking more water instead of sugar heavy juices and caffeine laden energy drinks. The benefits of citrus fruits in your Water Bottle Infusers and the added bonus of a fresh clean taste will do wonders for your body!

Build A Healthy Habit of Drinking More Water!

Making healthy choices mean saying good bye to overly processed foods and sugary drinks. It means going back to the basics and learning how good water is for your body and for your health. Water helps the body stay healthy. Fluid loss especially in the summer or after strenuous exercises can be dangerous if not replaced sufficiently. Dehydration can be a real problem for athletes and overly active children. For many people, drinking water has become a healthy habit. To them drinking 8 glasses of water is easy and they do it without even thinking twice about it. For others, drinking water is so non-appealing that they’d rather drink soda or sweetened iced tea than water.

Drinking fruit infused water is a great way to introduce water into your daily regimen. It’s all natural and it’s fun and easy to make. Having a good water bottle infuser helps. Don’t get water bottles made of glass, instead get one that’s made of durable and unbreakable Tritan plastic. Make sure that they are BPA free plastic and FDA compliant. These are the plastics that have been approved for food. Next, consider the size. How big do you want it to be? If you want something that’s easy to carry even when it’s full, then go for the 20 oz Tritan Infuser water bottle. Check also that the lid closes tightly and that it has a flip top or a sport lid. This way, even when you’re on the go, you can drink your fruit infused water. Another thing to consider is the basket. A small basket means you don’t get as much fruit inside. A good size basket will accommodate more fruit slices and will help flavor your water faster. It would also help if the bottle and its parts are dishwasher safe.

Now that you have chosen your water bottle infuser, it’s time to make your very own infused water. Start with the simple ones, like lemon and orange infused waters. You can use any combination of citrus fruits and then you can add a sweet fruit to enhance its flavor. Berries like blueberries and raspberries are a great way to add natural sweetness. Mangoes, pineapples, watermelon, cantaloupes and peaches are another great addition to your infusion water. As you go and combining fruits, try adding a few mint leaves. The taste perks up wonderfully!

The best infused water combination begins with finding the right fruits, combining them and then leaving the water to steep. Just like good tea, the longer you leave them, the more intense the flavor will be. As you become an expert in making fruit infused water, you’ll find that some fruits make great flavored water in a matter of minutes, while other fruits require more time.

Drinking more water is always a healthy choice. Switch from drinking energy drinks, sugared iced tea and soda to drinking water. There’s nothing more refreshing than a glass of fruit infused water!
