  • Reasons To Buy Fruit Infuser Bottles For Your Kids And Grandkids

    When you’re juggling a job, a house, and multiple kids, keeping them properly hydrated is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Some days it probably feels like it’s all you can do to make sure they’re fed and fully clothed before it’s time to dash out the door for school. Soft drinks like soda, iced tea, lemonade, and Sunny D (yes, any sweetened drink is considered a soft drink!) are conveniently bottled making them really easy to toss in a lunchbox or backpack. Unfortunately, these kinds of drinks are one of the main causes of childhood obesity, a health epidemic that’s currently sweeping America. Here are just a few reasons why buying fruit infuser bottles for your kids is one of the best health decisions you can make for your family.

    Delicious Hydration

    More than half of children and teenagers in the United States might not be properly hydrated, according to a nationwide study from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. In fact, 54.5% of the students in the study had urine concentrations that qualified them as below their minimum daily water intake, reported CNN. For most kids, plain water isn’t very attractive, but water with delicious fruit in it? Now you’re talking.

    Better After-School Performance

    One result of making sure children have a water bottle with fruit in it is that they’ll begin to reap the health benefits of adequate hydration. Some of these benefits include improved cardiovascular health, and stronger muscles and joints. These are all things that can help your child perform better in after-school sports like football, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, and volleyball.

    Nips Sugar Addiction In The Bud

    The biggest reason to start your kids on fruit infused water bottles as soon as possible is that they’ll be saved the pain of sugar addiction. When you’re raised on soft drinks, they become a habit that’s very difficult to break as an adult.

  • Why Soft Drinks Aren’t Really "Thirst-Quenching" Or "Refreshing" At All

    We hear it in every commercial and read it in every print ad designed to make us buy more soft drinks: “ice cold!” “refreshing!” “quenches your thirst!” These slogans make us excited to take a big gulp of the first soft drink we can get our hands on, especially if the weather is hot and we’re feeling thirsty. The only problem is that they’re not exactly true. No, scratch that. They’re flat out lies. We’re not just saying that because we make a water bottle fruit infuser. The truth is that just because it’s a liquid doesn’t make it thirst-quenching. In fact, many of these soft drinks are so packed with artificial sweeteners and preservatives that they actually make us feel more thirst over time!

    So we reach for another soda and...the vicious cycle continues month after month. In order to feel true, thirst-quenching refreshment, you have to drink water, but that water doesn’t have to be tasteless or boring. In fact, with our fruit infused water bottles, you can create a flavorful, energy-boosting beverage for a fraction of the cost of a soft-drink. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. Let’s look closer at these thirst-quenching claims made by big soda companies.

    According to the Globe and Mail, “The term ‘soft drink’ refers to any beverage with added sugar or other sweetener and includes pop, fruit punch, lemonade, sweetened iced tea, sweetened powdered drinks such as Kool-Aid and sports and energy drinks.” When you consume these ultra-sweet beverages, it causes your blood sugar levels to skyrocket. When repeated day after day, this can lead to a condition called osmotic diuresis in which sugar leaves the body via the kidneys, carrying desperately needed water with it into the urine.

    If you truly want to quench your thirst and hydrate your body so that it can maintain proper weight, energy, and immune function, reach for our handy water bottle fruit infusers instead of those dangerous soft drinks.
  • Micronutrients: 4 Elusive Minerals

    We’ve previously talked about vitamins that are essential to get your body in peak performance that can easily be incorporated into your water bottle fruit infuser.  But micronutrients are more than just vitamins.  Micronutrients also encompass a variety of minerals that the body needs in small amounts to function.  These four minerals can be found in fruits that can easily be incorporated into your Define water bottle.  Take a look.


    Calcium

    When you hear calcium you should probably think bones.  Calcium is a main component in the development, growth, and strength of bones and teeth.  Furthermore, the movement of calcium into and from cells can signal many different cellular functions.  It’s so important for children and older women to get high levels of calcium in their diets to maintain proper skeletal function.  Toss some limes into your Define bottle for added calcium.  Or if you want to mix things up try some rhubarb or kumquats.


    Iron

    Iron can be difficult for many women to get enough of in their diets.  It’s essential in the creation of red blood cells and the function of hemoglobin which transports oxygen throughout the body.  While eating a salad with leafy greens or even a nice steak will help increase your iron intake, so will throwing some peaches, berries, or coconut into your Define water bottle.   


    Potassium

    Muscles function on a sodium and potassium pump system that tells your muscles how to move based on the fluctuations in the levels in the tissues.  That’s why when you are low on potassium you can easily get muscle cramps.  If you enjoy working out toss some bananas or some persimmons in with your water and with Define you’re set for the gym.  


    Zinc   

    While vitamin C can help boost your immune system, zinc is essential in white blood cell and antibody function.  This non-water soluble  so it is possible to get too much with a supplement.  Adding apricots, berries, and grapes into your Define water bottle will help increase your zinc intake at a safe pace.

  • How Much Water Per Day Is Enough?

    Do you know how much water you should be drinking per day? If you ask most Americans, they will probably respond with eight glasses of water should be consumed every day. This translates to drinking 64 ounces of water a day, or about two liters of water. While consuming eight servings of water throughout the day sounds like a noble idea, especially knowing that you can lose weight drinking water, it might also be a little unreasonable. Because of this, many people consider the task an impossible goal and continue about their days without making any additional effort to be properly hydrated. However, drinking water is extremely important for your health, and you might not need to consume as you previously thought. And if you are drinking from a water bottle with a fruit infuser, drinking the proper amount of water is easier than ever.

    According to an article from data journalism website Five Thirty Eight, you don’t need 8 glasses of water a day. In fact, after doing some digging, the article’s author Emily Oster discovered that the actual amount of water you should be consuming each day is much closer to four glasses than eight. This means you only need to drink two fruit infused water bottles a day, and this is much more manageable for anyone. With a Define Water Bottle, consuming a healthy amount of water is easier than ever. Simply add in your favorite fruit, and you’ll have a delicious drink to stay hydrated and healthy without even having to try! Order a Define bottle to make it easy to get the right amount of fluid every day.
  • 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.
