Infused water fights Dehydration

Dehydration

Up to a whopping 60% of the adult human body is water. Water always helps a human body stay hydrated and alive. Since summer here, the thermometer shows a rise every single day. One needs to keep him/her hydrated all the time. Dehydration could lead to diarrhoea, vomiting, low blood pressure, increased heart rate and unconsciousness. This could lead to many other medical issues. It is up to us to keep ourselves hydrated in this scorching heat.

Looking at this hot season ahead, we should look at making plain water drinking exercise more enjoyable and healthy. How do we do that? We do that by drinking Infused water.

What is Infused water?

Infused water involves a process. The extraction of chemical compounds or flavours from plant/herbs or fruit material is done to make Infused water. This is generally done by suspending the plant material in water for a specific period of time.

There is a high antioxidant content in fruit infused water. This cleanses the body and helps eliminate toxins faster. Infused water also keeps us hydrated. It also helps remove waste from our system. If we drink Infused water regularly, we build a stronger immune system. We will definitely have a healthy human body.

What is the shelf life of a prepared fruit infused water?

Any Infused drink will taste best after allowing it to stand for some time. Ideally, overnight Infused drinks taste the best. It also depends on what fruits or herbs you have used. It is also advisable to refrigerate the Infused drink to increase its shelf life.

How to make infused water?

Sugary or aerated drinks aren’t good for us because. In fact, they can actually leave us more dehydrated. You can infuse water with herbs, edible flowers, fruits, spice and even vegetables. It is all about being creative and getting the right combination. You can try with smaller quantities before making it your recipe. Wash your ingredients well. You can use the fruits or vegetables in peeled or unpeeled state. Try using organic stuff if possible. Don’t use over-ripe, or herbs that don’t look fresh. Add all the ingredients like fruits or whatever you use, into a bottle of cool water. Use thin slices if you want the flavours to infuse quickly.

Allow the water to stand for a few hours so as to allow the flavours to infuse. If this is done overnight, the water will be more flavourful. Some fruits infuse faster than others. Citrus infuses faster than herbs.

  1. I love infused water. I came across this word last year when one of my friend told me to open the fast with infused water. I put cucumber, mint , pineapple and lemon in the water and left it for sometime. It was so refreshing and I really felt good after the long day of fasting.

  4. Okay…you nicely detailed about the infused water. As you said in your part it is already getting hotter I think infused drinks should be given a place in daily routine. For me, (I am writing this comment sitting in front of a heating pillar)…gulping down the flavoured water is a willful act and I am all set to make it happen as the chill is getting sober day by day.

  16. O yeah.. I love this cucumber, mint, lemon infused water . Its so so refreshing and i always feel lighter when i start this. Just one query, is it true we should take a break after taking it for 15 days or so

    1. No, Infused water, in general, can be taken anytime. Detox recipes specifically have to be for a week or 15 days. Post that a break is needed. rather you do it once in three months to dotoxify your body.
