Fruit-infused water is a great choice for athletes, dancers and all active people. Such water tastes great, has plenty of electrolytes and antioxidants and is a much better and natural alternative to special drinks. For example, water infused with cucumber and lemon is great for actively exercising people and those lifting weights. Cucumber is rich in silica which helps muscle restoration. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which protects muscle cells from free radicals and assists muscle growth.
8. REDUCES BLOOD PRESSURE
One of the reasons why blood pressure might be high is the excess of salt in the body and the deficit of potassium. Salt retains water in the body and causes blood pressure to rise. Potassium is an electrolyte that helps to regulate the amount of sodium (salt) in your kidneys. Cucumber, kiwi, mango and raspberries are all rich in potassium, therefore, water infused with these fruits and vegetables is a great source of potassium and will help to reduce blood pressure.
