How A Foldable Water Bottle Can Help You To Drink More Water

Learn how a Foldable Water Bottle can be of help to you.

 

“Drink more water” – It’s a statement you probably hear constantly. But how much water are you really supposed to drink and how can you make doing so a bit easier?

Water accounts for nearly 60% of your body composition and is essential for growth and regeneration of every cell in your body. Without proper hydration, your body won’t work properly.

Proper hydration supports the following major health benefits:

  • Prevents dry mouth, lips, and throat
  • Keeps the body cool
  • Improves muscle and joint function
  • Helps you lose weight
    • As your body is cleansed with water, your body sheds waste which leaves you looking and feeling lighter.
  • Cleanses toxins from your body
    • Shedding toxins can give you more energy, improves mental health and functioning, and gives you better skin and hair.

Using certain fruits, herbs, and flowers take the benefits of hydration to a whole new level.

Infused water benefits can include:

  • Heightened metabolism
  • Enhanced digestive functioning
  • Improved immune system functioning (recuperate faster from illness and workouts)
  • Additional energy boosts and mood enhancements

It’s no secret that it’s difficult for many people to drink the necessary amount of water because it can be pretty boring at times. It isn’t as sexy as drinking a glass of wine and it doesn’t have the flavor a soda or sugary drink offers. And yes, while fizzy drinks are fun, it is so important that we limit the number of sugars and artificial ingredients we put into our bodies.

Thankfully, there are easy ways to make your water more interesting, flavorful, and packed full of health benefits.

My favorite way to spice up my water intake is with fruit-infused water!

Fruit-infused water is a great alternative to its soda counterparts while still being FUN. The main difference is, fruit-infused water is going to leave you feeling fresh and most importantly—HYDRATED! Almost every top massage and spa facility that I have been to serve fruit, herb, and flower-infused water.

So how much should you drink? Half your body weight converted to ounces. 

How should you drink it?

One way is a really cool Foldable Silicone Water Bottle from Hamswan.  I have had many opportunities of late to try out water bladders and foldable water bottles. I do not always find ones that I like but this one is different.

This foldable water bottle is like a marriage between bladders and bottles.The bottle is made out of food grade silicone that is sturdy enough to take a beating (I was very rough on it), is is BPA free and, unlike water bladders, it can stand up. Here it is attached to my gym bag with the attached clamp. Isn't it nice how color coordinated I am? (It comes in blue too)

It offers a collapsible water reservoir that when empty rolls up into a tight neat packet.  This is very convenient as it means I never have to be without my own water bottle and I save money on buying $3 bottles of water. I love it for hiking, camping, and the gym.

It’s one of my favorites! (the special cap in the water bottle will prevent you from getting run away seeds and leaves)

 

Detox Watermelon Recipe

32 ounces of water

 

4 cubes fresh watermelon
6 leaves cilantro (cilantro helps with detoxification)

 

In a 1-liter pitcher, place the fruit and cilantro at the bottom and add water until full. Cover the top of the pitcher and let sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to let the fruit seep into the water. The mixture should keep for two days.

The following are some other combination recommendations:

Water tips

 

  • Orange, lemon, and ginger (improves immune system and blood circulation)
  • Cucumber, raspberry, and grape (beats inflammation and fights cancer)
  • Rhubarb, apple, and cinnamon (amplifies metabolism)
  • Strawberry and lime (boosts anti-aging)
  • Pineapple and mint (relieves joint pain and supports digestive system)

  1. I loved this post, Elise!

    Especially the watermelon infused water! Who doesn’t enjoy watermelon?

    I live in the desert so keeping hydrated is extremely important. I remember when we first move here. Our nose and throat really had a hard time acclimating.

    Thank for the great tips in this post. Can’t wait to try them out!

  2. Oh how I would love to have a collapsible water bottle! I, too, like having drinking water with me most of the time. I used to carry bottled water (plastic) in the trunk of my car until I learned that chemicals might be released into if conditions are warm. I don’t know if that is a myth or not but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

    Thanks for this recipe. I am going to give it a try when watermelons are back in season. Right now my infused water is made with cucumbers and mint.

  3. Like your diy recipe for making fruit infused water. Gonna try that. We use similar types of bottles when we go out but didn’t know about the folding ones. Thanks,
    Edward
