  • 4 Vitamins Your Body Can’t Do Without

    No one will argue the benefits of being hydrated.  Though it can be hard to get the recommended amount of ounces of water per day, utilizing the define water bottle with fruit infuser can help increase your interest in drinking water.  The added fruit (or vegetables and herbs) can not only help your water taste great and refreshing but can also add essential micronutrients to your diet.  Many people can have micronutrient deficiency from not eating enough fruits and vegetables over the course of the day.  Define bottles with a fruit infuser can help make getting your micronutrients as easy as getting your water.  Taking a multivitamin can’t really hurt you but getting nutrients naturally through fresh food sources help make the nutrients bioavailable for your system to use.  Here are just some of the micronutrients essential for health that the define water bottle with fruit infuser helps you to consume through healthy sources in your water and why they’re so important.

    Vitamin A

    Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential in organ development, cell growth, and vision. Deficiencies in Vitamin A is a major cause of blindness in many underdeveloped countries around the world.   A fat-soluble vitamin is one in which fats break it down and store it.  The human body tends to need fewer fat-soluble vitamins than water soluble because the body is able to store fat-soluble ones.  Apricots, cantaloupe, and mangoes all provide high levels of vitamin a in fruit infused water.   

    B Vitamins

    There are nine different types of vitamin B that are essential of body function.  All types of vitamin B are water-soluble.  This means that the body does not store extra supplies of these vitamins in the body.  The only way to get them is from the consumption of foods with B vitamins present in them.  The body will use what it needs and release the rest through the excretory system.  Vitamin B6 is essential in the body’s metabolic function while B12 is critical for the nervous system and memory.  B7 is also known as biotin and is a building block for our hair and nails.  Bananas, kiwi, and grapefruit are all excellent choices if you’re looking to boost your energy levels with extra B vitamins.   

    Vitamin C

    You can’t talk about citrus without talking about vitamin C.  Like B vitamins, vitamin C is also water soluble.  Many animals are able to make ascorbic acid, the usable form of vitamin C on their, where as humans must obtain it from their diet.  It’s essential in cardiovascular health as well as for the immune system.  Feel a cold coming on?  Crank up the vitamin C intake.  Toss some guava, strawberries, blackberries, or citrus into your Define bottle to increase the vitamin C in your diet.   

    Vitamin E

    Vitamin E comes in eight different forms but only one form can be absorbed by the human body.  This type of vitamin E helps to reduce free radicals in the body and improves the immune system.  Some people even use vitamin E oils as a skin moisturizer.  To get some good vitamin E in your diet add kiwi, peaches, or blackberries into your Define bottle.

    Adding fruits and vegetables into your water to enjoy delicious infused water is great.  But also consider finishing off some of those fruits and veggies when you water is done as a refreshing afternoon snack.
