Quench That Thirst With Healthy, Infused Water Combinations


Hydration is important for good health, particularly during warmer months. However, our human water needs vary depending on a lot of factors—such as body mass, level of health, activity, and environment. According to leading health organizations like the Mayo Clinic, the body is made up of approximately 60-percent water, so its little surprise that proper hydration is required for simple body and organ functions, including to flush away toxins, maintain energy, deliver nutrients to cells, and to keep tissues healthy and moist.

However, plain old H20 doesn’t always hit the parched spot, which is why these eight infused waters can provide a healthy and refreshingly delicious hydrating solution…

1. Herbal Tea Water

Fancy a spot of tea on a hot summer’s day? Well, sun tea is a great way to herbally hydrate when the mercury soars. Have a cuppa without roasting up your kitchen by following these simple directions:

  1. Toss 6 of your favorite herbal tea bags (I use green or rooibos) into a 2-quart glass container.
  2. Fill with fresh water and seal.
  3. Place the container outside or on a windowsill for about 3-hours, and let the power of the sun infuse your brew.
