We are continually reminded of the benefits of drinking water. Drinking adequate amounts of water is vital to proper function, as the human body primarily consists of water. The problem is, there are times when water is the last thing you want to drink because of a cold, a sore throat, nausea, or another invigorating drink such as coffee sounds more appealing. Plain water may only serve to make you feel more queasy or unsatisfied. Fortunately, there are alternatives. The Refresh Flavor Infusing Flask allows you to infuse water with a wide range of flavors. Ginger and Peppermint are two popular infusers known for healing properties and helping the mind to stay alert.
Cold and Sore Throat Relief
When dealing with a sore throat, many of us are told to grab a ginger ale to bypass the pain and stay hydrated. Ginger is known for its medicinal components and its ability to relieve a sore throat or cough. The problem is that carbonated beverages steal water from the body, rather than replenish it. Instead, combining hot water, ginger, lemon, and honey makes a tea to relieve the throat. Simply fill the Refresh bottle with hot water and a touch of honey. Next, fill the flavor basket with ginger and lemon and you have a soothing herbal tea.
Nausea and Gastrointestinal Issues
When dealing with nausea or stomach irritability, peppermint is known for its ability to relieve these debilitating symptoms. Simply fill the bottle with hot or cold water and place the mint leaves in the flavor basket to enjoy a calming beverage.
In addition to healing properties, ginger and peppermint are known to help the mind stay alert. This is why some teachers pass out peppermints with tests, or suggest chewing mint-flavored gum. Not only does adding ginger or peppermint enhance your water's flavor, but the refreshing properties can help the mind stay awake and remain alert. Use the Refresh Flavor Infusing Flask to combine crisp, cold water with peppermint, strawberries, and lemon for a refreshing mix.
