Fruit Water - Can I or Can I Not?

Posted: Updated:

Walk into any supermarket and you will be bombarded with the smarter, better, or life changing water. You walk down the ale and then you don't know what makes sense.

Can you have fruit water? Can you have carbohydrate waters? Let me bring some light into this fruitiness.

The message is as always simple. Keep it as close as possible to the earth to keep your metabolic functioning at its best capabilities.

Our metabolism is a chemical process in our body and to function 100% it needs trace minerals and vitamins. No, not artificial chemicals.

Can you have drink fruit water? Yes, you can, as long there are no chemicals inside. Can you find them? Hmmm, I think Vitamin Water has some that do not have artificial chemicals or corn syrup, sugar and other sweeteners inside. Look into it.

Yet, I do want to provide you with an easy solution. Make it yourself.

Do following: Take natural mineral water that comes out from the earth with all the natural minerals and bubbles and add fresh squeezed juices to it. Use lemon, lime, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, or other fruits to your liking. You will provide your body with nutrients that are fresh and not chemical.

Another solution I love is to take fruit tea bags and put them in your water bottle. Try peach tea, blue berry tea, mint tea or other teas that you can think of. This solution adds flavor on as well if this is what you are looking for.

And the best thing to drink to hydrate your body is plain water. If you suffer from dehydration because of a long sports event such as a marathon, you might want to add a pinch of salt, to increase the hydration of your body.
