Water: Your Nutritional Secret Weapon

Staying properly hydrated is one of the best choices you can make to improve your health. Make it a priority to work up to drinking the recommended eight glasses of water a day. Give yourself some supplementary flavor and beneficial nutrients by adding cuts of citrus fruit to your water or try adding cucumber slices for a fresh, tasty, calorie-free flavor boost.

Lemons and limes contain more natural anti-histamines in the form of bioflavonoids than other citrus fruits, which is great for allergy relief. They also have higher amounts of anti-viral and anti-bacterial agents than any other fruit or vegetable. Sliced cucumbers add not only flavor, but also many essential minerals including potassium and magnesium. So go ahead and have a drink – a healthy drink of nature’s finest.
