As 2017 has come to an end, we’d like to take a moment to look back at just how special water really can be. It’s no secret that the water solution experts at Culligan have a fond interest in using the best quality water. But there are many other benefits to water that we highlighted last year. Here’s a recap of some of the top water tips we went over and how you can integrate more quality water into your lives.
Water not only carries oxygen to your cells, it also removes toxins from the body. By drinking it in various forms, such as in hot tea or infused with lemon, water is an immune system booster and can help to ensure your body’s systems are properly functioning.
Sometimes you need a good cleansing to reset and reenergize your body and mind. A detox water recipe can be used to flush out toxins and help maintain regular digestion. Ingredients like grapefruit, mint and watermelon can be used to make a solid detox water recipe.
Water and weight loss can go together at times. Not only is water used to boost your metabolism, which ultimately burns fat, but you can also use it to create healthier alternatives to sugary sodas and sports drinks. Swap that daily can of soda for a little-to-no calorie thirst quencher like citrus-infused water. It can provide a natural energy buzz and replenish electrolytes after a workout.
Drinking plain water can get old, which makes it tough to continually hydrate all day long. To incorporate water into your daily diet, try infused water recipes or even making flavored ice cubes to change up the mundane water routine.
When you’re feeling under the weather, water can be just what you need. There’s a lot of options to choose from when deciding what to drink when sick. From ginger water recipes with anti-inflammatory properties to delicious and nutritious warm soup recipes that offer immunity-boosting vitamins and minerals, water is the key to getting better. Aside from drinking water, it can also be used as a natural remedy to flush out sinuses and fight allergies.
When it boils down to it, water has numerous benefits to all aspects of your life. At Culligan, we make offering clean and safe water a priority and strive to provide you with the best solutions for you water needs. So keep these water-based tips in mind as you enter the new year to help ring in a healthy 2018.
