In the morning you grab a coffee. In the afternoon you grab a sugar-sweetened beverage, latte or maybe even an energy drink–all in the name of giving yourself that little jolt to keep you going throughout the day. But, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the best beverage choice is (drum roll) a tall glass of water. They call it, “the gold standard fluid for the body.”
We know, you’re probably wondering how Plain Jane water can give you a bigger boost than caffeine. Well, it’s pretty simple. In order for our bodies to function properly, we need to replenish it with water–especially since our bodies are 60% water. By hydrating yourself, you’re going to feel better which in turn helps you feel more energized.
Additionally, according to a study by New York Hospital–Cornell Medical Center, 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated. And Active.com points out that dehydration leads to fatigue because it impacts the flow of oxygen to the brain causing the heart to work harder to pump oxygen to all bodily organs, making you more tired and less alert. See? It’s all making sense now!
But…water…it’s just so…boring. Hey, we get it. We know your taste buds are used to that fizz that sugar and that artificial flavor. But, trust us on this one because it’s time to think about your drink.
Stay Hydrated. Stay Energized.
It’s time to elevate your hydration and make boring water flavorful by infusing it with 100 percent fruit and herbs! That’s right, Frozen Garden Fusions have real flavor because it’s made with real food. We take fresh fruits and herbs, puree it and freeze into single-serve frozen “cubes” you add to a glass of water (or other beverage such as tea) to infuse it. And, because Fusions are made with real food, they’re packed with vitamins and antioxidants that can help also help your body.
It’s an easy, convenient and tasty way to add flavor without added sugar or nasty powders. So, next time you feel like you need to hit the snooze or take that afternoon cat nap, pump up your day, your water and your hydration with a Frozen Garden Fusion.
