Benefits Of Fruit-Infused Water

Besides the fact that it looks pretty.

Benefits Of Fruit-Infused Water

Besides delicious taste of fruit infused water and the artsy pictures that you can post of it on social media, putting fruit in your water can have a lot of health benefits. By putting certain fruits in your water, you can lower your risk of diabetes, obesity, the common cold, the flu and heart disease. Adding fruit to your water can help also help your digestive system, strengthen your immune system and get rid of toxins. Fruit water can also decrease your risk of developing cancer.

Fruit infused water can also help maintain your youth. Rather than spending money on anti-aging creams, putting fruit in your water can slow down the aging process. Because fruit contains powerful antioxidants and increases collagen production, it allows you to look and feel younger, leaving your skin silky smooth.

Fruit water can also increase your metabolism and help you maintain a healthy body weight; it doesn’t contain the calories of soft drinks, but it is more fulfilling than plain water. Because there are so many vitamins in fruit, putting fruit in your water can leave you feeling more energetic. Basically, it’s a healthy drink that can help satisfy your sweet tooth. Of course, different types of fruit have different health benefits.

1. Lemon

Putting lemon in your water helps aid digestion and freshen your breath. It also helps detox your liver.

2. Grape

Grapes are notorious for containing cancer fighting compounds.

3. Orange

Oranges help with healthy blood circulation. They are also a valuable source at vitamin C and reduce the risk of stroke.

4. Apple

Apples help maintain bone and tissue health. They are high in iron and low in calories, which is always a plus.

5. Kiwi

Because kiwis contain an enzyme called actinidain, they are great for your skin.

6. Grapefruit

Grapefruit is both great tasting and great at flushing toxins out of your body.

7. Cucumber

Cucumbers hydrate and are good at flushing out toxins.

8. Raspberry

Raspberries are an anti-inflammatory and rich in fiber.

9. Lime

Limes contain a multitude of anti-aging properties. It has restorative properties for hair, skin, and nails.

10. Pineapple

Pineapple can help relieve joint pain and arthritis.

So now that the weather is getting nicer, try putting some fruit in your water and feel the benefits it has to offer you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
