Sometimes we all need a little help to boost our hydration.
It’s no secret we need to be consuming approx 2-3L of water per day for optimum health, but for the non-water drinkers among us staying on top of daily hydration can be easier said than done. (Especially through the cooler months)
Queue these 5 time saving tips to boost hydration:
High quality salt such as pink Himalayan Salt, or sea salt contains trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and of course, sodium. These trace minerals are a form of electrolytes that help to rehydrate the body. Adding a good pinch or 1/4 turn of a grinder into 600mls water is all you need.
Adding a refreshing twist of citrus, sprinkle of mint or ribbon of cucumber can turn boring water into a fresh flavour sensation. Making your own flavoured water ensures you’re not consuming excess sugars that are found in store-bought versions. (The sugar in these drinks in some cases can increase dehydration).
Herbal teas are delicious served hot, but steeped and chilled are a healthy and delicious way to flavour water. Love Tea’s range of naturopathically blended teas make the perfect addition to any drink bottle on the go. We recommend: White Rose & Goji,, Coconut & Orange and classic Peppermint
If drinking water really isn’t your thing, try upping your intake of high hydration foods. Veggie soups, salads and smoothies are a great way to get in extra hydration. Cucumber and celery are high water-content foods and great additions to juices, soups or on their own as snacks.
Nutra Organic’s range of fresh, fruity, naturally flavoured collagen powders adds a burst of flavour and nutrients. Try adding a scoop to your drink bottle and sip throughout the day. A great, sugar-free way to boost hydration.
