Why should you drink fruit infused water and not just drink juice or soda? Several reasons:
Better Flavor: The subtle flavors of infused water is so much better than the overly sweet flavor of most juices. Unlike juice, the flavor is gentle and very refreshing.
Less Sugar: Most fruit juice also contains a lot of sugar. Even without added sugar, juice is a source of naturally occurring sugars and it is better to consume fruit whole so that you get the fiber, which helps slow down sugar absorption.
Hydration: Fruit-infused waters contain much of the flavor (or more) of fruit juices without the sugar, making it easier to drink more. Most people enjoy the taste of fruit waters, making them more likely to drink more water.
Variety is the spice of life, after all!
