No doubt that drinking enough water is essential to maintaining a healthy body. Our bodies are made of 60 percent water, and every drop of fluid facilitates healthy circulation, digestion, regulation of body temperature and the flow of nutrients in the body.
If you are not getting enough water, you will dehydrate and feel fatigue, muscle pain and stiffness, and even constipation. Dehydration mostly affects the look of your skin. So, if fruit supplement in the water helps you to drink more water, feel free to drink those cocktails.
Clean skin, weight loss, detoxification … are just some of the things that we hear as benefits of drinking water mixed with all kinds of fruits, vegetables and herbs. But what are actually the benefits of drinking these refreshing cocktails? The benefits are numerous, here are a few;


1. Healthy skin 
2. Improved facial looks
3. Perfect complement to a healthy diet
4. Packaged in bottles, and can be drunk all day long to counteract cravings for food, sodas and other addictions.
5. Instant power booster and satisfies hunger  easily.
6. Aids in weight loss.
7. Nutrients necessary for a body's daily function all in one place. 
8. Acts as anti-aging.
9. They have excellent taste, and inspire you to drink more water and to hydrate the body enough.
 10. Properly hydrated body effectively gets rid of waste products through the natural process of detoxification through the kidneys, liver and skin.
11. Drinking water mixed with fruit instead of buying juice that contain sugars, gives you a substantial health benefit.
 12. More water intake helps you feel complete and removes a false sense of hunger that occurs due to dehydration.

So, to prepare your home made infused water (pieces of fruits mixed with water), get the following first:
- Fruits like banana, lemon, mango, orange, pineapple, water melon etc - get as much as you want because you are doing it to your taste. You can also choose the variety of fruit you want to mix yourself- there is no rule to choosing any fruit.
- Distilled water – this is the water you find on the cover of your kettle or pot when boiling water ie the drops water that were trying to evaporate. To get this, you can place a pot on a source of heat, cover it with a lid bigger than it but slightly pointed at one end. Place a bowl under the pointed end and collect the water that drops from the cover when it starts boiling.
-  Fresh leaves - mint leaves, lemon grass leaves, bitter leaves (optional)
- Spices - ginger, garlic cloves (optional)
- Tea - Green tea, raspberry (optional)

Next, start preparing it following the steps below:
1. In a bottle or jar or even bowl, add some distilled water.
2.  Add your slices of fruits:  Orange, cucumber, banana, lemon, watermelon, lime or dry fruit( raisins) etc. Orange rinds and lemon peels can also be added if you want.
 3. Add the remaining optional ingredients: fresh leaves like mint leaves, lemon grass leaves, bitter leaves; Spices like ginger, garlic cloves; Tea like Green tea, raspberry.
If you don’t want to add any of these extra ingredients, just skip to step 4.
4. Leave for some minutes. This will allow everything get absorbed in water and all nutrients fully extracted.
5. Place in the fridge and allow it to chill.
6. Drink it alone or with a dish/snack.

Here are some tips: 
1. Don’t add too much optional ingredients at a time; use 2-4 ingredients at a time, too much in the drink will make it bitter, cluttered and prone to lose taste faster.
2. Add honey or unsweetened sugar if you need more sweetness, though it is preferable to drink the infused water in its natural state. 
3. Add some flavoring (vanilla, strawberry) if you want, for a nicer scent. 
One more healthy thing to help in your weight loss journey, health lifestyle and smooth skin; is to avoid the following drinks:
1. Avoid carbonated and fizzy drinks (also called soft drinks) no matter what the ingredients in it are.
2. Avoid power drinks.
3. Avoid drinks with refined sugar and colourants.
4. Avoid artificially flavoured water.
5. Avoid diet drinks.
7. Avoid syrups.
8. Avoid instant sachet powder drinks.

Always look through the list of ingredients of any drink you want to consume. Any ingredient that is unknown, suspicious or fatty is an indication the drink is not so natural after all, so avoid it.

Try preparing bottles of infused water to take along with you wherever you go; home, school, office, field, gym, shops etc. Just learn to sensitize and condition your psyche to start loving water. Even your family members and friends will begin to enjoy drinking your naturally  flavored water once you introduce them to it. 
Just get creative with this, you may even create your own signature infused water for packaging and selling.
