Admittedly, summer has its perks. But along with newfound incentives to go out and take the world by storm, summer also brings along an abundance of prospective problems for the body, and resultingly, the mind. Stretching hours spent under the scorching sun render the body exhausted and undernourished. The sweltering heat wrenches out every bit of moisture, leaving you with the dizzying after-effects of dehydration and major loss of electrolytes.

 

Luckily for us, there are several natural ways to battle summer induced health concerns. As a matter of fact, most of these solutions involve a handful of basic staples you have to just walk into your kitchen to find. We're talking particularly about water infused with the goodness of fresh fruits and green leafy veggies. With a simple stir of a spoon, and perhaps some brewing, you can get your hands on healthy hydrating concoctions that replenish your body's lost energy and vigour during peak summer. So, let's walk you through the 8 infused water recipes we've found and loved, and now wish to share with you!
