We know you need 8 or more glasses of water a day to keep healthy and hydrated. Our bodies are made up of 70% water after all which kind of makes us just cucumbers with anxiety ;) We also know that consuming 8 glasses of water is a lot easier said than done.
Not to worry Root7 is here to help you drink differently. With our help we’ll have you drinking 8 glasses of water and more!
8 Ways to Get in Your 8 Glasses of Water per Day
1) Start Your day with a glass of water.
Drinking water within the first few minutes of waking up is vital for optimal brain activity, liver and kidney functionality.
If you’re not keen on leaving a glass of water standing out all night, try storing it in our Citrus Zinger Sport water bottle. Its spill proof, so you won’t have to worry about knocking it over anything important on your bedside.
2) Research has shown that having a glass of water before you shower lowers your blood pressure.
Citrus fruits such as lemons, oranges berries and kiwi are a high source of vitamins that lower blood pressure and boost your metabolism. Infuse your water with these fruits using our Aqua Zinger for the best multivitamin around.
3) Hydrate before, during and after you exercise.
The Citrus Zinger Sport allows you to infuse your water with lemon, orange lime or clementine and is also perfect to take with you on your morning run!
Lemon water fuels the body with potassium, calcium and magnesium. These vitamins and electrolytes are vital for joint and muscle health. Aim to drink small sips throughout your gym session to replace all those electrolytes you’re losing in your sweat.
4) Swap your snacks for a berry blast.
If you’re carving something sweet, why not try a berry blast! Zing Anything with all your favourite berries like strawberries, blackberries, cherries and blueberries for blast of flavour. This will not only satisfy your sugar cravings but boost your metabolism and aid in weight loss. We’ve never heard of any candy or bar of chocolate that can do that!
5) Drink before you eat
Having a glass of water before meals will prepare your stomach for ingestion and prevent heartburn.
6) Swap your coffee for apple H20
Fruit infused water is not only healthier than coffee but it also does a better job! Apples contain natural caffeine and sugar. Why not switch your office coffee machine with the Z54 Water Infuser Carafe and get everyone buzzing on berries, apples and mint for the ultimate brain booster!
7) Ginger water
Have some ginger and lemon water after eating can prevent bloating and improve digestion.
8) Drink before you sleep.
Having a glass of water before bedtime helps to expel waste and toxins from your body. Lettuce contains traces of lactucarium and hyoscyamine which has sedative effects similar to that of opium. Infuse a few lettuce leaves before bedtime for a relaxing sleep that is guaranteed to send you off to dream land.
