Water is an important item to add to your to-do list every day as it is essential for the body to function optimally. It’s also refreshing during hot South African summers and will keep you hydrated. Unfortunately, many people tend to find that it is pretty bland, making it difficult for many to drink enough water.

That’s where infusion comes in. Adding various foods to your water can help make the taste more enjoyable, whilst adding a host of benefits to its already long list.

We’ve got 7 delicious foods to add to your water that will make it taste yummy and that are incredibly beneficial.

1)      Blueberries

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and they’re incredibly easy to add to your water because they’re so small and don’t require any chopping or peeling. Plus, they even make your water bottle look delicious which may make it more enticing.

2)      Grapefruit

Grapefruit is typically very sour, but adding it to your water makes your water both sweet and tart. This fruit is also incredibly juicy, adding more liquid to your water. Grapefruit will also help flush toxins and waste from your cells.

3)      Kiwi

Kiwi may be a small fruit but it packs a powerful punch. Not only is it delicious, but it also has tons of cleansing enzymes that will help keep your skin clear and give it a natural glow.

4)      Lemon

Lemons are a great way to kick start your digestive system in the morning, so adding them to your water for the day is an easy way to do this. They’re also full of d-limonene which will help detox your system throughout the day.

5)      Mint

Mint is a great addition to water as it promotes digestion and soothes indigestion. It also provides you with a refreshing taste of your water which is ideal for hot summer days.

6)      Cucumber

Cucumbers may seem boring because, well, they’re 90% water, but they’re pretty beneficial. They’re packed with silica, a trace mineral that keeps muscles healthy, so adding cucumber to your water after a gym session is a great way to aid muscle recovery and get your H2O in.

7)      Watermelon

Watermelon is full of water, but it’s also naturally sweet so adding it to your water bottle gives a deliciously sweet summer taste. It’s also loaded with vitamins which are great for overall health.
