The main health benefit of these healthy tonic is HYDRATION.
While you do gain some nutrition from each infused fruit, you do not ingest the same fiber, nutrients, and vitamins as you would when blending fruits & veggies and drinking them.
In addition, measuring the exact nutritional density of infused waters is also difficult because of how long, at what temperature, and in what amount of water you infuse your ingredients.
Don’t dismiss infused waters simply because they are not vitamin powerhouses.
Hydration is absolutely crucial to healthy functioning of your body and brain!
