Spa Vitamin Water

What If I told you, you can add a few delicious ingredients to something you already do everyday that will help you have more energy, sharper thinking, and will shed a few inches along the way? Sounds too easy, doesn't it?

The original vitamin water was provided by nature, with it's intoxicatingly fresh smell and sweet taste. Adding, fruits and herbs to your water everyday helps detox the body gently - every time you drink water. Pumping your body full of vitamins and nutrients will help flush out toxins and consequently give you more energy.

Plus, most of us don't drink enough water. This is a great way to motivate yourself to not only drink more water, but to crowd out sugar ladened juices and sodas. Processed sugar is a culprit for inflammation that can cause a host of chronic diseases. Diet drinks are even worse! The are linked to weight gain vs weigh loss. Skip all the processed chemicals and opt for nature's gifts.
