Citrus and water — your best friends

We’ve covered some of the best foods that everyone should include in their diet (here) before, but today we’re going to delve into something a little more specific. Actually, two things — one of which may come as a surprise.

If you aren’t already aware, water is without a doubt one of the best things you can put into your body. It’s literally the source of all life on our planet and it’s benefits are innumerous. If you’re looking to lose weight, drink water. If you’re looking to build muscle, drink water. If you want to work out harder and longer, drink water. If you want to just feel better, drink water.

You won’t want to miss out on the plethora of benefits that consuming more citrus will bring either. For starters, consuming more citrus fruits can help in warding off type 2 diabetes, cancer, and stroke!

It doesn’t stop there, though. Citrus fruits are famous for their richness in vitamin C, which is filled with its own health merits.

They say that stress is related to 99% of all illnesses, and vitamin C is looking to change that. It not only helps to reduce stress, but also strengthen your immune system. 2 benefits for the price of one!

All things considered, it just makes sense to combine these two great things, doesn’t it?

Lemons and water are a match made in heaven. So many people use water’s flavour (or lack thereof) as an excuse to not hit their daily dose. Throw some lemon in there, though, and you’ve got an antioxidant-packed beverage that’ll help you hit your water quota every day.
