Maintaining hydration, even overdoing it in the water department, is key to health, beauty, and longevity. But as good as water may be, there are other even better flavored water alternatives (which is a relief for people like me who don’t like just plain water).
Boost your water’s potential by adding coconut, peppermint, lavender, lemon, aloe vera, and chlorophyll, transforming just hydration into a liquid elixir. Here’s what the extra oomph can do for you:
Coconut – This super hydrator has more potassium than 3 bananas, and is filled with electrolytes. It has shown to help stabilize blood pressure, restore mineral levels, aid in digestion and balance the metabolism.
Peppermint – Yes, it’s refreshing. It’s also rich with Vitamins A&C, and has been shown to help with detoxification, mood boosting and headache relief. Plus, it helps suppress the appetite (particularly sweet cravings), and calm digestion.
Lavender – This is your ideal end of day drink! The aroma is naturally calming, and combined with the taste lavender lowers heart rate and blood pressure, allowing you to relax enough that you will start to feel a little sleepy. Plus the polyphenols reduce bloat-causing bacteria.
Lemon – Lemon is an amazingly powerful curative. It helps boost nerve and brain function, alkalinize the bacteria that causes indigestion, cools inflammation, improves the immune system, reduces blemishes and wrinkles, while minimizing the physical impact of aging.
Aloe Vera – If you want a skin glowing, beauty drink- you’ve got it. Aloe refreshes, stabilizes, and soothes and cools skin on the cellular level. It’s also naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, plus it acts as a detoxifier- helping to clean out the system of stuck toxins.
Chlorophyll – Chlorophyll is a cellular building block, increasing the quality and quantity of red blood cells, while also cleansing the body of carcinogens. It also helps to remove toxic heavy metals, reduce inflammation, and deodorize the system.
