Heatwave Hydration | More Than Just Water

With high temperature days like we recently had during last week’s heatwave, I find that not only am I extremely hot and uncomfortable but I move slower, my energy is drained and I definitely don’t eat as I should (since eating heavy meals make you sluggish, adding drained energy to the equation doesn’t help). So the result is lack of proper hydration and nutrients. Yes, drinking water is excellent for the body, especially during a heatwave – we all need the hydration but plain water doesn’t keep you comfortable or give you all the vitamins and nutrients you need from food and of course, it does get boring when the water is bland. But all that was changed when I added the following waters to my daily routine. I found three waters that refreshed and kept me cool from the inside out, gave me the necessary vitamins I was lacking and liven up the boring taste of water.

 Metromint Water

Metromint is pure water infused with real mint leaf that refreshes in every sip. Mint’s benefits include reducing stress and anxiety, aids digestion, and freshens your breath. We’ve all had mints and you’re all acquainted with how eating a mint gives you a slight chill – well imagine that chill all over your body. I was literally cool from the inside out. It has no calories, sweeteners or preservatives and is 100 percent all natural. Metromint comes in 7 refreshing flavors – Peppermint, Spearmint, Orangemint, Lemonmint, Chocolatemint, Cherrymint and Goodberrymint. (I am addicted to the Goodberrymint and Chocolatemint). These deliciously cooling beverages are available in 16.9oz. bottles and are a must this summer.

Fruit2O

For those of you who require a delicious flavor to your water, Fruit2O’s crystal clear water has a tasty twist with a little more flavor than plain water.  It is made with natural fruit essence with zero sugar, zero calories, zero carbs, zero artificial flavors, is gluten-free and caffeine-free. With Fruit2O you’ll be enjoying a delicious drink without all the ingredients that make all those sugary drinks bad for you. Fruit2O’s has 10 delightful, natural fruit flavors which includes Cucumber Lemon (new!), Watermelon (new!), Strawberry, Grape, Tropical Fruit, Raspberry, Peach, Orange, Lemon and Cherry. A 6-pack of Fruit2O retails for around $6.99.

ACTIVATE Drinks

ACTIVATE Drinks is a nutrient-enhanced water with a fresh dose of vitamins that keep people healthy during their busy lifestyle. Research shows that several vitamins (vitamins A, B, C and E) lose their potency sitting in water. Pioneers of the twist cap technology, ACTIVATE developed an innovative cap that stores the nutrients/vitamins in its cap that won’t be released until you are ready to drink your water. ACTIVATE has 10 different flavors tailored to different body needs such as, supporting immunity, skin cell support, renewed energy support, rehydration support and overall health. A 16.9oz  bottle of ACTIVATE retails for $1.99. The flavors and their vitamin benefits include:

ACTIVATE Balance (Lulu Pear and Fruit Punch): With Overall Health and Maintenance Support
ACTIVATE Defend (Raspberry Citrus and Orange): With a Healthy Boost of Immunity Support
ACTIVATE Rebound (Passion Fruit and Pink Grapefruit): With Rehydration Support
ACTIVATE Beauty (Exotic Berry): With Overall Health and Skin Cell Support
ACTIVATE Defy (Blueberry Pom): With Support against Free Radicals for Healthier Cells
ACTIVATE Charged (Grape and Lemon Lime): With Renewed Energy Support
